As per news report of NDTV, A conference draft decision published on the UN Climate Change website urged countries to accelerate "the phaseout of unabated coal power and of inefficient subsidies for fossil fuels". It was a rare mention of the fuels driving global heating in more than two decades of UN-led climate negotiations. But it was more nuanced than language in the COP26's first draft text, which appeared online Wednesday. That text urged countries "to accelerate the phasing out of coal and subsidies for fossil fuels". "Unabated" coal plants are those that do not deploy carbon capture technology to offset some of their pollution.
