The United Nations (UN) is demanding that governments around the world sign an agreement to commit to ending the use of all fossil fuels, including oil, gas, and coal.
In a Monday announcement, UN climate negotiators confirmed they are pushing to finalize a deal at the COP28 climate summit in Dubai.
According to the announcement, the deal will trigger the beginning of the end for fossil fuels.
Flying back to Dubai on the UN’s private jet to add his voice to the negotiations, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for “maximum ambition and maximum flexibility” to reach an agreement.
Guterres is jetting back to the summit to ensure that climate negotiators can find consensus among the nearly 200 UN member countries.
“We are in a race against time,” Guterres told reporters, AFP reports.
“It’s time to go into overdrive to negotiate in good faith,” he continued after alighting from his jet before going on to join some 80,000 other attendees who have flown in from all around the world for COP28.
The conference of the elites in the lavish Dubai metropolis built by oil money is considering the first-ever call to exit oil, gas, and coal, considered by some as the main culprits in the planet’s “climate crisis.”
Neighboring Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest oil exporter, has led the opposition.
The OPEC cartel urging its members to vote against a phaseout of fossil fuels.
Without naming countries, Simon Stiell, the head of the UN climate body, called on all sides to remove “unnecessary tactical blockades” holding up a deal.
Guterres called on negotiators to have a “single-minded focus on tackling the root cause of the climate crisis — fossil fuel production and consumption.”
He called on the summit to recognize “the need to phase out all fossil fuels.”
This stance, however, is opposed by oil producers led by Saudi Arabia.
The summit leadership is expected to release a new draft text on Monday.
The annual Conference of the Parties, or COP, has rarely finished on schedule in its 28-year history.
However, COP28 president Sultan Al Jaber has called on countries to wrap things up on time on Tuesday.
At the beginning of the conference in late November, Al Jaber provoked outrage from globalists by blasting calls to end fossil fuels.
As Slay News reported, Al Jaber exposed the anti-fossil fuels agenda as a hoax.
“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 1.5C,” Al Jaber declared.
He continued by warning that anti-fossil fuel policies would “take the world back into caves.”
