The Cop28 president, Sultan Al Jaber, held a surprise press conference at which he said comments he made about the phasing out of fossil fuels were 'misrepresented'. The Guardian reported how Jaber had remarked that there was 'no scientific evidence' indicating a phase-out of fossil fuels was needed to restrict global heating to 1.5C. Jaber, who is CEO of the UAE's state oil company Adnoc, defended the comments he made during a zoom meeting on 21 November with the former Irish president and UN climate convoy Mary Robinson. Jaber said: 'Let’s just clarify where I stand on the science … I honestly think there is some confusion out there and misrepresentation.'
