The fact that a fossil sector executive will be in charge of the 2023 climate change negotiations outrages Rescue Mission International (ReMI). On Tuesday, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) named Sultan al-Jaber, the president-designate of the 2023 Climate Change Conference and the head of oil giant Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) (CoP28). The position was filled at a time when the state-owned Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), of which he is CEO, was looking to expand upstream crude output by entering into concession agreements for additional exploration and production in order to develop oil resources. This is significant because Jebel Ali in 2020 had been found to contain more than 80 trillion cubic feet of gas resources. This is appalling behavior that shows a complete disdain for the CoP procedures and the ongoing climate change negotiations over the past 30 years. We demand that Dr. Sultan Al Jaber resign immediately and condemn it in the strongest terms imaginable. ~ Ibrahim Tuzee Abdul-Raheem (Co-Founder and Head of Climate and Environmental Governance Cluster)
