"the UN-manager's alarm: ”We are losing the fight against climate change”"
"the UN chief António Guterres sounded the alarm when he spoke to the world economic forum WEF in Davos on Thursday."
"– Climate change is our time's most important issue. We are losing the battle, " said the UN secretary-general to the collective power elite."
"Climate change has been one of the main issues at the annual world economic forum in Davos, Switzerland, where politicians and other influential people are gathered for the 49th year in a row. "
"Among other things, the global riskrapporten, as done for the WEF, every year, ruled that the political landscape in the world made it increasingly difficult for politicians to act together against global challenges such as climate change. "
"Especially as the united states pulled out of the paris agreement, which is to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees, and the new president of Brazil Jair Bolsonaro is threatening similar actions."
"”Our time's most important issue”"
"It was the UN secretary-general António Guterres to roar to in his speech before the assembly on Thursday:"
"– Climate change is our time's most important issue. We are losing the battle, said the UN chief, according to the AFP news agency."

"Appealed for financial support"
"Something which also the UN's climate panel, the IPCC, warned in the autumn. Already now, global warming is on the earth about 1 degree compared with pre-industrial times. The IPCC concluded in its report that we only have 10 years to halve the carbon dioxide emissions, and that there can be serious consequences for the future of the planet if the warming will be 2 degrees instead of 1.5."
"If we were to implement what we agreed in Paris, would the global temperature to increase more than three degrees," said Guterres in his speech. "
"– that is Why it is imperative that the countries agree on even stronger measures. "
"He pleaded, inter alia, on economic aid to poorer countries switch to a more sustainable climate. "
" We need political will and we need governments who understand that this is the absolutely most important issue of our time. "
