EU to push for fossil fuel phaseout 'well ahead' of 2050 at COP28 climate summit.

The EU is pushing for a global pledge to phase out the unabated use of fossil fuels "well ahead of 2050" at COP28 according to climate chief Frans Timmermans.He said he hopes to get countries to sign up for three interlinked parts of this pledge. The first is that the annual deployment of new renewable energy needs to triple between now and 2030.Secondly,he said that the world must double the rate at which energy efficiency is improving compared to the last decade. The final pledge calls for the world to "phase out unabated fossil fuels ahead of 2050." This would mean eliminating emissions from the oil and gas sector and products sold by oil and gas companies.It will also require an end to the use of coal. "I know these are ambitious proposals but they are necessary," he added."They can provide a strong signal on climate action to decision makers,investors and civil society."

            This is a significant and commendable move by the European Union (EU) to push for a faster phaseout of fossil fuels.

              This is what we need! Proper big changes- but watch out- there'll definitely be a right wing backlash- some people are very afraid of change especially societal change, remember to vote in elections to keep the green agenda going.

                I like the idea of them triple on renewable energy, that will be a much better solution.

                  Incredible 👍.A extremely near future timeline is definitely a much better one.I wonder why we could be buying that much time until 2050.
