Fury as COP28 head and UAE energy tsar Sultan Al Jaber says there is ‘no science’ to suggest phasing out fossil fuels will limit global warming to 1.5C – and doing so would ‘take us back to caves’

There is ‘no science’ behind phasing out fossil fuels and the policy will take the world ‘back to caves’, according to the head of COP28.

The president of the Dubai climate change summit, Sultan al Jaber, made the comments during an online question and answer session at a She Changes Climate event.

As well as running Cop28, Al Jaber is also the chief executive of the United Arab Emirates’ state oil company, Adnoc.

Ms 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.

Al Jaber replied: ‘I accepted to come to this meeting to have a sober and mature conversation.
