COP28 ends with global leaders saying oil, coal and gas are doomed

-

- Advertisment -

The world will soon be transitioning away from oil, coal and gas – that’s the consensus reached by an influential gathering of international leaders at the annual United Nations climate change meeting.

The agreement made an historic acknowledgment: The world will soon be radically changing how cars run, how electricity is generated and how goods are transported.

“The world has spoken with one voice and the message is clear: it’s twilight for the fossil fuel era,” said Manish Bapna, president and CEO of the Natural Resources Defense Council, said in a written statement.

The U.N. says the plan marks a historic global first – a plan to create a roadmap to move away from fossil fuels. But it stopped short of what some climate activists wanted: a “call for a ‘phaseout’ of oil, coal and gas.”

What’s COP28, this international gathering?

Tuesday was the official end of COP28, the annual United Nations meeting of the 197 parties that have agreed to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, originally adopted in 1992. The 13-day meeting came at what scientists say is a critical moment in the fight to keep the already dangerous effects of climate change from tipping over into a catastrophe.
