Ramp Up Renewable Energy
The 28th United Nations Climate Change Conference or COP28, met in Dubai to discuss climate plans from November 30th through December 12th, where a landmark agreement to "transition away from fossil fuels in energy systems" was made.
COP28 was made up of nearly 200 countries that initially had been split about their viewpoint on fossil fuels. Countries like Saudi Arabia, Russia, and China oppose the move away from fossil fuels. Yet, more than 100 nations were pleading for a phase-out of fossil fuels. On the other hand, others were calling to phase out or eliminate fossil fuels while, some preferred to say, "reduce the use of planet-heating fuels" which ended up being the final agreement. While this small verbiage change was heavily challenged and fought for, critics were unclear on what the revision really means in terms of actual action.
