UN Secretary General speech of 10 September 2018 (extracts)
“Climate change is the defining issue of our time – and we are at a defining moment. We face a direct existential threat…
“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.
“Far too few have acted with the vision the science demands. We see the results. In some situations, they are approaching scientists’ worst-case scenarios.
“As climate change intensifies, we will find it harder to feed ourselves. Extinction rates will spike as vital habitats decline. More and more people will be forced to migrate from their homes as the land they depend on becomes less able to support them. This is already leading to many local conflicts over dwindling resources.
“Humankind has confronted and overcome immense challenges before; challenges that have required us to work together and to put aside division and difference to fight a common threat. That is how the United Nations came into action. It is how we have to helped to end wars, to stop diseases, to reduce global poverty and to heal the ozone hole. Now we stand at an existential crossroad.”
“I have spoken of the emergency we face, the benefits of action and the feasibility of a climate-friendly transformation.”
