In an interview with CNBC today[1], Andrew Bowie MP, Minister in the UK Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, made a statement that the G7 has agreed to phase out coal during the first half of the 2030s. 

In response, Tracy Carty, Global Climate Politics Expert, Greenpeace International, said “The G7 phasing out coal in the first half of the 2030s would be too little, too late. If they are serious and aligned with what the science says is needed to keep 1.5° within reach, G7 countries must ditch this dinosaur planet wrecking fuel no later than 2030 – and as the climate emergency demands they can’t just stop at coal: Fossil fuels are destroying people and planet and a commitment to rapidly phase out all fossil fuels – coal, oil and gas – is urgently needed.”
