Protesters demand action against global warming (symbol picture).

GLASGOW (dpa-AFX) – In the final spurt of the World Climate Conference in Glasgow, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned the around 200 states to show more ambition and willingness to compromise in the negotiations. In addition, all countries would have to “radically” reduce their emissions of climate-damaging greenhouse gases. “This is the most important fight of our lives,” he said on Thursday before the plenary. On the penultimate day of the summit, UN climate chief Patricia Espinosa also put pressure on it. “We’re going to work harder than ever before – because we have to.” A surprisingly closed climate pact between China and the USA – the two largest emitters of harmful greenhouse gases – could bring movement to the sometimes halting talks.

“Every country, every city, every company, every financial institution must radically, credibly and comprehensibly reduce their emissions and adjust their portfolios accordingly – from now on,” demanded Guterres. Otherwise the common goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees compared to pre-industrial times could not be achieved.
