                  What did we expect from cop 28 as long the leader was working with the oil company this was bound to happen, it's very frustrating.

                              The move should not be supported they need to be condemn with strongest term as possible

                                    UAE has a great potential that closely matches their fossil fuels and should consider investing in clean energy which can still give them profit margins
