UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres stated Sunday he was “disappointed” by the outcomes of a serious UN local weather summit in Madrid, calling it a missed alternative to deal with the worldwide warming disaster.
Guterres issued the assertion because the COP25 concluded its marathon assembly voicing “the urgent need” for brand new carbon-cutting commitments however falling effectively in need of what was wanted.
“I am disappointed with the results of COP25,” Guterres stated. “The international community lost an important opportunity to show increased ambition on mitigation, adaptation and finance to tackle the climate crisis.”
