United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres requested countries across the world to not stop their fight against climate change. Guterres explained the importance of climate change to approximately 200 representatives from different countries who gathered in Madrid for a two-week meeting on global warming. He also warned that the “point of no return is no longer over the horizon. It is insight and hurtling toward us.”
During the opening speech to delegates, UN chief gave recent scientific data which shows that levels of heat-trapping gases have hit a record high, levels that are not seen for at least 3 million years when sea levels were 10-20 meters higher than today. He warned until the time emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are reduced, temperatures could rise to twice the threshold of Paris accord. At this UN summit, the US delegation was led by Ambassador Marcia Bernicat, one of the senior Department official. We all know that President Trump has withdrawn from the Paris Climate accord recently. However, as the procedure will be initiated technically only after November 2020, so a US delegation was also present at the summit. However, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the nation remains committed to the 2015 agreement’s goal.
Former Vice President Joe Biden responded to this news with a tweet from his official handle. He posted “If we don’t take urgent action to address the climate emergency, our planet may never recover. We must get the climate change denier out of the White House and tackle this crisis head-on.”
