If we do not change our fossil fuel consumption habits, we will not be able to protect ourselves from the impacts of climate change

António Guterres , UN Secretary-General, warned about climate change, saying,” Floods, droughts, storms, and fires are increasing due to climate change.

Half of humanity is in extreme danger due to these natural disasters. No country can protect itself from the impacts of climate change unless it changes its fossil fuel consumption habits.”

Antonio Guterres said this at the climate conference of 40 countries organized by the United Nations in Berlin, Germany.



The next global (COP27) UN Climate Conference will hold in Egypt next November. Before this, the Berlin conference gained particular importance.

Addressing the ministers of the countries participating in the conference, Antonio Guterres said, ‘We have the opportunity to choose one of two options. To prevent climate change, we have to take joint initiatives, or we have to commit suicide at the same time.”

Guterres criticized global institutions like the World Bank and multinational banks. He said these institutions are not entirely adequate to achieve the goal of preventing climate change.

These institutions cannot play an influential role in providing the necessary money to the climate fund. Institutional reforms are essential.



Guterres said these words when a large part of Europe was burning in intense heat. Temperatures in the UK are forecast to reach a record 40 or 41 degrees Celsius.

This will be the highest temperature record in the country’s history. Due to the heat, fires have appeared in France and Spain.

In addition to Europe, fires are burning in various parts of North and South America. Archeological monuments of Peru’s Machu Picchu, one of the world’s ancient seven wonders, are at risk due to fires. Heatwave is raging in South Asia and Africa, including Bangladesh and India.

The world’s countries are currently struggling with rising energy and food prices. These countries have to deal with now the impact of Russia-Ukraine war, in addition, to dealing with the effect of the COVID 19 Pandemic. Meanwhile, increasing natural disasters have created new pressures.



Temperatures in the UK are forecast to reach a record 40 or 41 degrees Celsius. This will be the highest temperature record in the country’s history. Due to the heat, fires have appeared in France and Spain.

At the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, in November last year, countries pledged to limit global warming to 1 to 5 degrees Celsius.

Nevertheless, sufficient initiative and coordination have not been seen yet to implement that promise. Countries will publish an updated national strategy paper on initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions this year.
