‘Verge of Complete Failure’: Climate Summit Draft Drops the Mention of Fossil Fuel Phase-Out, Angering Advocates

By Angela Dewan and Laura Paddison

Climate advocates are warning the COP28 climate summit could be on the cusp of failure after a new draft of the core agreement removed a call to phase out fossil fuels, the main driver of the climate crisis.

The draft, posted Monday more than six hours later than expected, instead used watered-down language on fossil fuels in an apparent concession to oil-producing nations that opposed the measure.
