United Nations secretary-general Antonio Guterres says the world must dramatically change the way it fuels factories, vehicles and homes to limit future global warming. The alternative “would mean a catastrophic situation for the whole world.”
Guterres said he was about to tour Pacific islands to see how climate change was devastating them as part of his renewed push to fight it.
He was summoning world leaders to the UN in September to tell them “they need to do much more in order for us to be able to reverse the present trends and to defeat the climate change”.
That means, he said, the world has to change, not in small incremental ways but in big “transformative” ways, into a green economy with electric vehicles and “clean cities”.
