FAITH @COP28
BOOK RELEASE

For the first time in the history of COP Climate conferences, a pavilion on Faith was installed, and this writes a new chapter on world climate diplomacy.

My book titled, “Climate Changed: Global Warming to Global Boiling” is the first ever technical book on Climate Change with a chapter on Faith. In the chapter, I’ve written from the encyclical of Pope Francis, “Laudato Si’”.

The book was graciously received by world political and religious leaders.

I believe that Faith leaders have a more potent reach than political leaders, to call for climate justice and sustainability.

On behalf of Pope Franics who could not make it for the presentation, the book was received by H.E. Christophe Z. El-Kassis Apostolic Nuncio to the UAE.

On behalf of the Islamic community, the book was received by His Holiness, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, the 53rd Da'i al-Mutlaq and Supreme Pontiff of the Dawoodi Bohra.

His Holiness, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, graciously welcomed me and received a copy of my book. He gifted me a copy of his book on the preservation of water.

Leaders from every continent have recieved a copy of my limited-gold-edition book.

Blessed!

BOOK RELEASE: AMBASSADORS @COP28

Throughout the years, I have fostered meaningful connections with several ambassadors and diplomats, and these relationships have borne significant fruit in the realm of foreign policy.

The endorsements can be read here: https://dominicdixon.net

I am deeply grateful to Ambassador Ramūnas Davidsons from Embassy of Lithuania in the United Arab Emirates, representing the European Union, who graciously reviewed and endorsed my book. His invaluable contribution sheds light on Europe's pathway toward Climate Justice.

Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General of the International Solar Alliance, undertook the meticulous task of reviewing and endorsing the manuscript amid his representation at India's G20 Presidency, extensive travels, and preparations for ISA's engagement at COP28.

A heartfelt appreciation goes to Dr. Sam Pitroda, the father of Indian telecom, and serial inventor, and advisors to Prime Ministers of India, for generously penning the foreword for the book, and having encouraged me with this publication.

Dr. @Nripendra Misra, IAS, the esteemed former Principal Secretary to Prime Ministers of India, has been a true source of inspiration. His commitment to revising the manuscript and endorsing it on my birthday in London this year is a testament to his dedication. Dr. Mishra's appointment to the Prime Minister's office was a rare event, requiring a constitutional amendment.

Dr. Faisal Ali Rashid PMP, Senior Director of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, took precious time to engage with me on the book and provide his endorsement, despite his demanding schedule in preparation for COP28 engagements,

A special mention goes to Mr. Mohammed Al Sheraifi, Chief negotiator for Loss and Damage, from the Office of the UAE Climate Change Envoy. His unwavering support ensured that the book, featuring a demanding chapter on "Loss and Damage," met the standards of accuracy, technical depth, and originality required for COP28.

My thanks to two senior world leaders Patricia Espinosa Cantellano , former UNFCCC Chief, and Ovais Sarmad, former UNFCCC Deputy Chief, for their tireless and painstaking leadership to make the world a better place - thank you!
