President of COP28 Denies Scientific Basis for Phasing Out Fossil Fuels

The President of COP28 asserts that the calls to gradually eliminate fossil fuels are not backed by scientific evidence.

COP28 President and United Arab Emirates climate chief Sultan Al-Jabe has claimed that there is no science to support phasing out fossil fuels to avoid catastrophic warming.

The head of the United Nations climate talks taking place in Dubai made his remarks during a live online event on Nov. 21.

He was emmediately slammed by climate scientists who described his comments as “farcical” by climate scientists.

The Guardian reports: Al Jaber also said a phase-out of fossil fuels would not allow sustainable development “unless you want to take the world back into caves”.

The comments were “incredibly concerning” and “verging on climate denial”, scientists said, and they were at odds with the position of the UN secretary general, António Guterres.

Al Jaber made the comments in ill-tempered responses to questions from Mary Robinson, the chair of the Elders group and a former UN special envoy for climate change, during a live online event on 21 November. As well as running Cop28 in Dubai, AL Jaber is also the chief executive of the United Arab Emirates’ state oil company, Adnoc, which many observers see as a serious conflict of interest.

More than 100 countries already support a phase-out of fossil fuels and whether the final Cop28 agreement calls for this or uses weaker language such as “phase-down” is one of the most fiercely fought issues at the summit and may be the key determinant of its success. Deep and rapid cuts are needed to bring fossil fuel emissions to zero and limit fast-worsening climate impacts.

Al Jaber spoke with Robinson at a She Changes Climate event. Robinson said: “We’re in an absolute crisis that is hurting women and children more than anyone … and it’s because we have not yet committed to phasing out fossil fuel. That is the one decision that Cop28 can take and in many ways, because you’re head of Adnoc, you could actually take it with more credibility.”

Al Jaber said: “I accepted to come to this meeting to have a sober and mature conversation. I’m not in any way signing up to any discussion that is alarmist. There is no science out there, or no scenario out there, that says that the phase-out of fossil fuel is what’s going to achieve 1.5 C.”

Robinson challenged him further, saying: “I read that your company is investing in a lot more fossil fuel in the future.” Al Jaber responded: “You’re reading your own media, which is biased and wrong. I am telling you I am the man in charge.”

Al Jaber then said: “Please help me, show me the roadmap for a phase-out of fossil fuel that will allow for sustainable socioeconomic development, unless you want to take the world back into caves.”

“I don’t think [you] will be able to help solve the climate problem by pointing fingers or contributing to the polarisation and the divide that is already happening in the world. Show me the solutions. Stop the pointing of fingers. Stop it,” Al Jaber said.

It looks like the President of COP28 has just turned against the NWO … Or did they just make a mistake letting an oil exec lead the UN climate conference?

  1. Interesting article. Who are the 100 or so countries signed on? Who are the people who did the deal? What is the connection and relationship? Are they traitors and criminals or simply engaged in super imposed unscientific consensus fraud? What are the options? Electric vehicles? Any comment on the electric vehicle grave yards in Europe where everything is supposed to be recyclable? Expensive batteries, suppressed battery technology, the lithium war and China’s quest for industrial dominance?

    Notice how nobody talks about these high performance fuel systems you wrote about? Suppressed technology, no, it’s only about de-industrialization, control, super imposed with all kinds of asymmetrical war vector scenarios. What about the hydrogen generator fuel systems? Free energy, zero pollution, weird how nobody talks about other relevant options.

    Since Canada is being subject to the great beat down, high performance fuel systems are a good idea, also see , the petro chemicals part, obviously in the stock market when someone is selling, someone else is buying. We can re-invent Canada, and at the same time fight a war. With all these foreign stories that may be difficult to get accurate first hand intel, it is always good to know the background story, and follow the science, right back to globalist bank accounts & geo-political actions for resources and control. We can be next or anytime as the nationalists in Defence or government are few, subject to the wrong general, outnumbered by traitors and criminals. National Defence needs to be defended. Real pro active Nationalists on the scale of Adrien Arcand will be needed and wake up to the reality of a totally failed political state where anti nation state war and genocide machinery is super imposed everywhere.
