Sticking points remain on fossil fuels at COP28

Dubai: Negotiators have been urged to narrow down their options so they can agree on how to save Earth from disastrous levels of warming and help vulnerable societies adapt to weather extremes as the clock runs down on United Nations climate talks. COP28 President Sultan al-Jaber told journalists Sunday afternoon that negotiators were “making good progress”, just not fast enough. “Am I satisfied with the speed and the pace?” al-Jaber said, as protesters could be heard nearby calling for the end of fossil fuels. “The answer is no. ... Time has come for us to shift gears. Time has come for us to deliver.” There some were signs negotiators were moving forward on Sunday: A new draft agreement on global adaptation goals — which will determine how poor countries will brace themselves for climate change-fuelled weather extremes like drought, heat and storms — was released.
