The Climate Change Minister, says the draft text of the COP28 summit agreement does not go far enough.

The current text refers to reducing the consumption and production of fossil fuels in a just, orderly and equitable manner.

He told Morning Report the wording in the draft text does not make a firm commitment to transition away from fossil fuels.
