Islamabad August 10 (Online): United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has urged the world to end all new fossil fuel exploration and production, and shift fossil fuel subsidies into renewable energy.
In a statement on Tuesday, after the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concluded that the 1.5 Celsius temperature goal of the Paris Agreement would likely be breached around 2030, he warned that fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas are destroying the planet.
Guterres called the IPCC’s assessment the most detailed review of climate science ever conducted and a code red for humanity.
