World Leaders Arrived at UN HQ to Take Part in the Climate Action Summit

World leaders arrived on Monday (23 Sep) at United Nations Headquarters in New York to take part in the Climate Action Summit.

As carbon pollution, temperatures, and climate destruction continue to rise, and public backlash mounts, the Summit aims to offer a turning point from inertia into momentum, action, and global impact – if everyone gets on board.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, United States President Donald J. Trump, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Bolivian President Evo Morales, and Colombian President Iván Duque were among the scores of high-level participants at the Summit.

The UN estimates that the world would need to increase its efforts between three- and five-fold to contain climate change to the levels dictated by science – a 1.5°C rise at most – and avoid escalating climate damage already taking place around the world~UNIFEED
