At COP28, a crucial challenge faces world leaders: to phase out fossil fuels or not?

Fossil fuels, like coal, oil, and gas, have been used to produce energy ever since the industrial revolution. But they also emit carbon dioxide when burned.

In 2023, carbon dioxide emissions are expected to hit an all-time high of 36.8 billion metric tonnes. This would be a 1.1 percent increase from 2022.

If the over 200 countries attending COP28 do decide to adopt the draft resolution for phasing out fossil fuels, it would pave the way for a quicker transition to renewable sources of energy.

The Quint looks at data on fossil fuel consumption and what lies ahead.
