Antonio Guterres UN General Secretary alerted about the record of 2018 as the 4th scorching year and warned that the world should take necessary steps to prevent the global warming otherwise everyone will have to suffer the catastrophic consequences due to diverse change of climate.
Guterres said in his speech in New York, at UN headquarters, “ Climate change is the defining issue of our time – and we are at a defining moment. If we do not change course by 2020, we risk missing the point where we can avoid runaway climate change with disastrous consequences for people and all the natural systems that sustain us.”
During signing in on the Paris Agreement on the climate change matter in 2015, the world leaders had committed to take necessary measures to prevent the rise of global temperature and tie that below 1.5 degrees at the end of this century.
But current survey discloses that they not only missed the target but also totally went to the off-track of the signed commitment.
Guterres raised voice for a universal environmental tie up along with all the businessman, scientists, politicians and also the common public.
Guterres claimed, “ Far too many leaders have refused to listen. Far too few have acted with the vision the science demands.” addressing the leaders of the world gathered at the Annual General Assembly Meeting of UN in New York.
He added, “ The mountain in front of us is very high but not insurmountable. Put simply, we need to put the brake on deadly greenhouse gas emissions and drive climate action.”
The UN chief informed that the world leaders will be ordered to show their progressive steps for preventing the perilling effect of the Global Warming, at the coming COP 24 environmental summit at the Polish city of Katowice.
