Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Boris: No chance of stopping climate change next week in Glasgow” – below is their description.

In a round of interviews at the G20 summit in Rome – where he is trying to gain momentum ahead of the gathering in Glasgow next week – Boris Johnson warned that the outcome is still in the balance. He painted a dire picture of the consequences if world leaders do not act, with civilisation at risk of plunging back into the ‘Dark Ages’. He said that when the Roman Empire collapsed it could ‘no longer control its borders, people came in from the east’ – and climate change could cause similar disaster with ‘contests for water, for food’. The premier conceded that there will be ‘costs’ from moving to a Net Zero economy – which he has promised the UK will do by 2050 – but he said it would also create high-skilled, high-paid jobs.

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