Germany Calls For Renewable Energy Targets To End Fossil Fuel Age

Germany Calls For Renewable Energy Targets To End Fossil Fue

The German Foreign Minister, Annalena Baerbock, has called for the world’s governments to work towards a global target.

This target meets for renewable energy to help prevent dangerous global warming and bring an end to the fossil fuel age.

Speaking at a meeting of top climate envoys in Berlin, Baerbock stressed the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Baerbock’s proposal calls for a shift in focus from setting a deadline for phasing out all fossil fuels, which faced resistance from major oil and gas exporting nations, to a target for renewable energy.

Meanwhile, Sultan al-Jaber, the former oil company executive who will preside over the COP28 climate summit from November 30 to December 12, has called on nations to triple renewables capacity by 2030.

This would mark a public endorsement of the International Energy Agency’s target, which al-Jaber raised at a closed-door meeting with G7 leaders in Japan last month.

He also called on developed countries to deliver on their promise of a $100bn climate package for developing countries, stressing the need to build trust and accelerate progress.
