“Climate change is no longer a long-term problem. We are confronted now with a global climate crisis. The point of no-return is no longer over the horizon. It is in sight and hurtling towards us. However, my message here today is one of hope not of despair. Our war against nature must stop, and we know that that is possible.

STORYLINE:

Speaking to reporters ahead of the opening of the 25th Conference of the Parties (COP 25) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Madrid, Secretary-General António Guterres on Sunday (1 Dec) said climate change “is no longer a long-term problem” and we are now confronted with “a global climate crisis.”

Guterres said, “the point of no-return is no longer over the horizon, but stressed, however, that his message was “one of hope not of despair.”

He said, “our war against nature must stop, and we know that that is possible” noting that the scientific community “has provided us with the roadmap to achieve this.”

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, global temperature rise must be limited to 1.5 degrees Celsius, and carbon neutrality must be reached by 2050, while greenhouse gas emissions must be reduced by 45 percent from 2010 levels by 2030.

COP25 marks the beginning of a 12-month process to review countries’ “Nationally Determined Contributions” or NDCs (the commitments made under the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement) and ensure that they are ambitious enough to defeat the climate emergency.
