The host of the COP28 green agenda summit in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has gone rogue and warned that there’s “no science out there” to support the “climate crisis” narrative.
COP28 President Dr. Sultan Al-Jaber left attendees at the summit stunned when he exposed the “global warming” narrative to be a globalist hoax and declared that ending fossil fuels will send humanity “back into caves.”
According to the Telegraph, Al-Jaber, who also heads the state oil company Adnoc, said the phase-out of fossil fuels was not necessary to achieve the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Paris Agreement target of limiting warming to 1.5°C during a meeting in the run-up to the summit.
“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,” he said in response to a question from Mary Robinson, the former Irish President.
Dr. Al-Jaber is also head of the renewable energy company Masdar.
He suggested that a phase-out of fossil fuels would mean countries missing out on “sustainable socioeconomic development.”
“Net Zero” could not be achieved “unless you want to take the world back into caves,” Al-Jaber warned.
He added that a “phase-down and a phase-out of fossil fuels is inevitable, it is essential, but we need to be real, serious, and pragmatic about it”.
His comments are at odds with messaging from the United Nations, which convenes the COP28 summit.
On Friday, Antonio Guterres, the UN chief, called for a total oil and gas phase-out.
“Not reduce. Not abate. Phase out – with a clear timeframe aligned with 1.5 degrees,” he said.
Green agenda advocates were outraged over the comments.
They pointed to several reports that find phasing out fossil fuels is necessary to stick to the Paris Agreement goals, including a new report released on Sunday.
Responding to Al-Jaber’s remarks, Professor Joeri Rogelj, a contributor to the UN’s globalist Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said:
“I strongly recommend him asking around for the latest IPCC report.
“That report, approved unanimously by 195 countries including the UAE, shows a variety of ways to limit warming to 1.5C, all of which indicate a de facto phase-out of fossil fuels in the first half of the century.”
A spokesman for Cop28 said:
“This story is just another attempt to undermine the presidency’s agenda, which has been clear and transparent and backed by tangible achievements by the Cop president and his team.
“The Cop president was unwavering in saying reaching 1.5C involves action across a number of areas and sectors.
“The Cop president is clear that phasing down and out of fossil fuels is inevitable and that we must keep 1.5C within reach.
“We are not sure what this story was supposedly revealing.
“Nothing in it is new or breaking news.”
In the Telegraph, Peter Lilley, one of the “Infamous Five” who voted against the Climate Change Act in 2008, says that even the IPCC acknowledges that the consequences of doing nothing to reduce carbon emissions will be far from catastrophic.
Surely, it’s time for a full investigation into those pushing the “Net Zero” agenda.
