BERLIN (AP) — Senior officials from dozens of nations meeting in Berlin remain divided on how to meet international climate goals. Some countries are pushing for a phase-out of fossil fuels while others insist that oil and gas can continue to play a role in future, provided their emissions are somehow contained. German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock made clear that proposals for ramping up renewables should not detract from the need to drastically cut fossil fuel use.
