Don’t make coal lone villain, India asserts at climate meet

Amid growing demand to end use of coal, India here at the UN climate talks (COP27) on Saturday made a strong point saying making any one fuel the villain is not right as natural gas and oil also lead to emissions. Making its intervention during presidency consultation on the cover decisions of COP27, India also suggested certain points to be included in the decision text, saying the long-term goal of the Paris Agreement requires phasing down of all fossil fuels.
