Climate activists have taken to the streets of Melbourne CBD on Wednesday.
Protestors linked to the group ‘Extinction Rebellion’ will mirror protests by the group ‘Just Stop Oil’ in the UK by marching slowly through the streets.
The protests follow claims by Sultan Al Jaber of the UAE made during the She Changes Climate panel event on November 21.
Sultan Al Jaber claimed that there is ‘no science’ behind demands to phase out coal, and fossil fuels to restrict global heating, at the COP28 climate summit in Dubai.
“There is no science out there, or no scenario out there, that says the phase-out of fossil fuels is what’s going to achieve 1.5C,” he said.
