Governments ‘are lying’ about climate change policies, says UN secretary-general

UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres says the current climate change initiatives by governments internationally are “a file of shame”, warning that the world is “on a fast track to climate disaster” in a speech made following a “damning” report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).The major new UN report has set out the action needed to tackle the climate crisis and curb global warming to 1.5C or below 2C, including deep cuts to fossil fuels with a switch to technology such as renewables. The report from the UN’s science body highlights measures to cut emissions from the energy sector, agriculture and land, cities, buildings, industry and transport.
