Being Green - 15 Dec 23_ Professor Francois Engelbrecht, Director of Wits University’s Global Change Institute.

--:--
There was a standing ovation on Wednesday morning when a landmark deal was agreed on at the end of the United Nations climate summit in Dubai. While it doesn't specifically mention the "phasing-out" of fossil fuels, it does call for parties to contribute to efforts to "transition away" from the use of fossil fuels in energy systems in a way that will achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. But while the COP28 deal is being hailed as an historic step in the right direction, many analysts believe it may not be fast enough to avoid the worst climate change impacts. In this week’s Being Green, Glynis Crook looks at the agreement with Professor Francois Engelbrecht, Director of Wits University’s Global Change Institute.
