Phaseout anger.

A decision to drop language calling for a fossil fuel phase out in a draft COP28 text has drawn condemnation from the U.S., Europe and island nations, POLITICO reports, while others are more sanguine.

If the world decides on a phase down instead of a phase out, will it be enough? Is the fight over unabated emissions over? Depends who you ask, and with time ticking, the pressure is on.
