"The term ‘abated’ is being used as a trojan horse to allow fossil fuels with dismal capture rates to count as climate action," Claire Fyson tolf RFI. "‘Abated’ may sound like harmless jargon, but it’s actually language deliberately engineered and heavily promoted by the oil and gas industry to create the illusion we can keep expanding fossil fuels."
Claire Fyson is interviewed on Euractiv's Beyond the Byline podcast about what’s been happening at the UN’s Climate Summit COP28, currently taking place in Dubai.
Bill Hare told AP the central issue of the meeting "is to reach a conclusion about the phasing out of fossil fuels. And unless we do that, I doubt whether we’re going to see an improvement in temperature."
"I am very sceptical," Bill Hare told the BBC. "The real challenge for the oil and gas sector is to move away from producing oil and gas," he said. "Nothing else really matters in the end."
“This is an extraordinary, revealing, worrying and belligerent exchange." Bill Hare told The Guardian. "‘Sending us back to caves’ is the oldest of fossil fuel industry tropes: it’s verging on climate denial.”
We Don't Have Time
"We have all the reliable info available, we just need the government to step up and respond to the science," Claire Fyson on the fossil fuel phase out on the We Don't Have Time broadcast at COP28.

Dr Michiel Schaeffer said a key objective of the Global Mitigation Potential Atlas is to channel more finance, capacity building and tech solutions for emissions mitigation into developing countries by fostering international cooperation.
Bill Hare told AP that the UAE has pushed for a less stringent “phase down” instead of a stricter “phase out” of fossil fuels. He called the phase down phrase “window dressing” for increased oil and gas drilling.
Claire Fyson told CNN the momentum is in favour of a green transition, but "we’re still in very dangerous territory".
