The United Nations Secretary-General said countries must maintain the Paris Agreement objective of reducing global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius alive as one of his top summit goals in COP26.
The secretary general of the UN has called for global economies to be decarbonized and coal to be phased out, saying world leaders need “maximum ambition” to make the summit a success.
Guterres addressed world leaders gathered in Glasgow, Scotland, for the meeting, “It’s time to say: enough.”
Enough with the annihilation of biodiversity.
Enough with the carbon-based deaths.
Enough with treating the environment as if it were a toilet.
Enough with the burning, drilling, and mining to get deeper. “We’re burying ourselves in our own graves.”
At the summit, tensions are high due to funding problems and unequal access to Covid-19 vaccinations, which have prohibited several delegates from participating all over the world.
The secretary has urged affluent countries to follow through on their pledges to provide $100 billion per year in climate financing to developing countries.
He also encouraged world leaders to do more to protect vulnerable populations, noting that climate-related disasters have affected roughly four billion people in the last decade.
That damage is only going to become worse.
