COP27 addressed the symptoms but not the cause of the climate crisis: Fossil fuels
Campaign Updates

COP27 Global Gas and Oil Network Media Release

The failure to call for an equitable phase out of all fossil fuels at COP27 will mean more loss and damage in the world. A growing number of countries across all negotiating blocs called for a phase out of fossil fuels, while other countries blocked progress. Loss and damage and renewables gained momentum. The energy transition is underway, and the fossil fuel industry is on its way out.
