CoP28 - Will fossil fuel companies finally join the climate fight?

post-image

After decades of misinformation & procrastination, will the global fossil fuel industry come clean?

An oil baron, Sultan Al Jabar is the President for this year's UAE-based conference starting Thursday 30th Nov.

If, as Al Jabar argues, it takes someone from the fossil fuel world to make change, the world will be watching his key Cop28 initiative - the Global Decarbonization Alliance - involving oil and gas companies signing up to firm climate pledges.

The UN has recently warned the world is on track for a “hellish” 3C of global heating, so we badly need this initiative.

Looks like they'll need to join the climate fight:'

Multnomah County in the US has decided on a course of action that might have consequences around the world. The county is suing the global fossil fuel industry for $US50 billion ($76.2 billion) to cover costs of a heat dome and for future-proofing the county.
