United Nations published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson: It’s the developing world that’s bearing the brunt of the catastrophic climate change” – below is their description.

Media Stakeout by Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, following the Informal Leaders Roundtable on Climate Action.

“It is the developing world that is bearing the brunt of the catastrophic climate change in the form of hurricanes, fires, floods, and the real long-term economic damage that they face. And yet it is the developed world that over 200 years has put carbon in the atmosphere that is causing this acceleration of climate change”, said the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom summarising the message heard from some affected countries at the event.

Boris Johnson also announced that the double vaccinated UK travellers will be able to enter the USA by the end of October.

    Climate Change is the name commonly given to the notion that the Earth is undergoing a changing climate as a result of human activity, including notable leaders, scientists and naturalists including Sir David Attenborough.

    Climate change includes both the global warming driven by human emissions of greenhouse gases, and the resulting large-scale shifts in weather patterns.

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
