UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned that the world has reached “a pivotal moment” in global warming and risks runaway climate change if leaders don’t act in the next two years.
Speaking Tuesday at the UN General Assembly in New York, Guterres told world leaders that they are not doing enough to combat what he calls “a direct existential threat” that is moving faster than people are working to combat it.
He’s calling for making sure the international Paris climate change agreement is implemented. US. President Donald Trump has announced he’s withdrawing his country from the pact. Guterres is planning a climate summit next year.
