December 12, 2023 - The Green Party of the United States (GPUS) said that COP28, which is now past the initial deadline to finish, would be an abject failure if it did not expressly call for a phaseout of fossil fuels. The Greens also said that the proposed funding to assist the developing world in dealing with the dangers of climate change driven by the industrial nations was grossly inadequate.
"COP28 has demonstrated the utter lack of urgency and ambition needed to address the climate crisis," said Green Party EcoAction Committee Co Chair Mark Dunlea. "While the 'agreement' on loss and damage is a small step, it is a drop in the bucket compared to what is truly needed to support vulnerable communities."Read more
