COP28 in Dubai: Climate Action & Controversies Unveiled



  Nov 02, 2023

COP28: Main Points & Controversies



COP28 Overview: This refers to the 28th annual UN conference aimed at combating climate change. The location, Dubai, UAE, is crucial this year because the UAE is a major oil producer. The event spans from November 30 to December 12, 2023.

Why Dubai is Controversial: Hosting COP28 in an oil-rich nation raises ethical questions. Critics liken it to a cigarette company overseeing a cancer conference due to the UAE’s significant role in fossil fuel production.

Conference Importance: The primary aim is to limit global temperature increases to 1.5C in line with the Paris Climate Agreement. Surpassing this limit significantly raises the risk of catastrophic climate effects.

Agenda & Participants: The conference plans to accelerate the shift to clean energy, provide financial support for climate initiatives in developing countries, and emphasize nature and human impact. It invites over 200 governments and various other entities.

Sticking Points: One of the contentious issues is the continued use of unabated fossil fuels. The debate ranges from complete phase-out to a slower phase-down, focusing on the viability of emission-capturing technologies.
