Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, has called on the heads of governments of 53-nations at the Commonwealth Summit in Malta to take immediate actions on climate change.
He said that for far too long, the world has spoken about climate change, but very little has been done to address the effects of climate change globally.
Ahead of the Paris UN climate change conference, COP21, the head of the UN said that he hoped a proactive agreement would be made that would effectively address climate change at all levels.
“We must take action. We have spoken for a long time – at least 20 years, longer than 20 years – and the science has made it plainly clear.
“And people on the ground, urge the leaders of today to make this world better and environmentally sustainable so that our succeeding generations can live in peace and harmony and prosperity, in a safer way,” he added.
Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, made a strong stance on the issue saying that the time for action was now.
