The science is clear, the impacts of climate change are being felt across the globe.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says in the last four years, temperatures have soared as the hottest on record.

The head of the UN says it’s a crying shame that some developed countries have chosen not to combat climate change which is a global crisis.

“It is absolutely impossible to understand and it is something that should be a shame in several parts of the world that years after the Paris Agreement, emissions are still rising last year, rising this year. This is totally unacceptable from a political point of view and from the moral point of view and this is something that needs to be reversed.”

Speaking last night at a farewell reception hosted by the Fijian Government, the UNSG reiterated the UN’s support for the fight with a Climate Action Summit to be convened in September in New York.

The UNSG travelled to Tuvalu today where he will witness first-hand how the rising seas are drowning the small island state.
