United Nations: The United Nations Secretary General endorsed the role of greater action and ambitions in monitoring global warning and added that averting serious consequences of runaway climate change “is still possible. “
“Limiting temperature rise to 1.5 degrees will require rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society, especially how we manage land, energy, industry, buildings, transport and cities,” Secretary General António Guterres said at a ministerial meeting on climate finance, in Bali, Indonesia on Saturday.
“That means putting an end to deforestation and planting billion more trees; reducing the use of fossil fuels in large measure and enormously increasing renewable energy; moving towards climate-friendly sustainable agriculture; considering new technologies, such as carbon capture and storage.”
In his remarks, the UN chief made a particular call for ‘climate friendly’ investments, particularly in the infrastructure sector, where over $90 trillion are expected in investments by 2030, the UN News reported.
