COP28 draft agreement released

From Morning Report, 6:08 am on 12 December 2023

There's widespread disappointment at COP28 after the release of the draft text of the summit agreement

It does not refer to a "phase out" of all fossil fuels rather talking about reducing both consumption and production of fossil fuels, in a just, orderly and equitable manner so as to achieve net zero by, before, or around 2050". 

The summit is due to wrap up in the next 24 hours but no COP summit has ended on time before.

David Tong, a global campaign manager at Oil Change International, who has been following the progress closely, spoke to Corin Dann.
