G7 Abandons Climate Agenda, Will Turn To Fossil Fuels Amid Energy Crisis

“World leaders at the G7 summit in Germany signaled they will turn back to fossil fuels despite their commitments to a green energy transition thanks to the ongoing energy crisis.

‘The G7 leaders are pretending that nothing has happened to the green agenda,’ Benny Peiser, director of the Global Warming Policy Forum, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. ‘In reality, if you look at individual member states… it’s quite obvious that the green agenda will be sunk.’

G7 leaders also announced a ‘Climate Club‘ to combat climate change and achieve climate neutrality by 2050. They gave sparse information on what the club would actually do, even though they noted that their current climate efforts were insufficient.”
