After landmark moves, climate talks hit again over coal, fossil fuel action

Deep fissures have emerged between developing countries still dependent on coal and rich nations that have pledged to move away from new coal but are silent on abandoning other fossil fuels. Negotiators at the UN Climate Conference (COP28) in Dubai are grappling with contentious issues around phasing out coal, other fossil fuels, and climate finance. There is little clarity on the final text of the agreement at this stage. Observers are concerned about the lack of funding for climate action, with rich countries relying on the private sector rather than public finance.
