Climate warning

Following COP 28, the world does not have an agreement to end reliance on Fossil Fuels.


In early December, most of the countries of the world wrangled with Saudi Arabia and other petrostates at COP28 – the recent climate change conference in Dubai – over whether there should be an explicit reference to a phaseout of fossil fuels in the conference’s final agreement. The debate went far into overtime, and the pro-phaseout advocates appear to have won the battle.
But don’t believe it! This is a Swiss-cheese, non-binding agreement that “Dirty Energy” will find plenty of ways to subvert.
Despite the many loopholes, there is hope for a genuine phaseout of the vast majority of fossil fuels by 2050. It won't happen by trusting the goodwill of the fossil fuel-producing companies and their allies but, instead, by reducing the demand for these fuels as quickly as possible.

      The post-COP28 analysis emphasizes the challenges in achieving a comprehensive agreement to end reliance on fossil fuels. While the debate at the conference leaned towards a phaseout, concerns are raised about the non-binding nature of the agreement, leaving room for potential loopholes. The skepticism suggests that relying on the goodwill of fossil fuel-producing entities may not be sufficient. Instead, the emphasis is placed on actively reducing demand for fossil fuels as a more effective strategy. This perspective underscores the need for concrete actions and international collaboration to bring about a genuine phaseout of fossil fuels by 2050, considering the urgency in addressing climate change.

            Fossil fuel producing countries have no goodwill and will probably never support an end to fossil fuels.

                The fight against climate change cannot be won solely through international agreements. National and local governments, businesses, and individuals all have a responsibility to take action.

                  Sad! The world must end the production and use of fossil fuels to prevent global climate catastrophes.

                          This is saddening, why can't this fossil fuels producing companies be contented by what they've made already and use their riches atleast to do the right this by using their riches to aid in phasing out fossil fuels.

                            If world leaders will not unite to phase out fossil fuels, then it will never be possible for anyone to do it!

                              This failure to take decisive action poses a considerable obstacle to addressing climate change effectively.

                              Fossil fuel producing companies have become so rich and powerful that they can buy their way out of anything. We have to keep pushing harder and harder and encourage people to shift to renewable alternative energies. By killing demand for fossil fuels, the supply will diminish.

                                        Does this mean fossil fuels dealers are so strong and reluctant to even consider alternative sources of energy that are climate friendly and still make them margins?
