'the 1. 5-degree goal is gasping for breath': antónio guterres on the state of climate action

Guardian News published this video item, entitled “‘The 1.5-degree goal is gasping for breath’: António Guterres on the state of climate action” – below is their description.

UN secretary general, António Guterres, during his final press conference this year said, ‘This is not a time to sit on the side-lines, it is a time for resolve, determination, and – yes – even hope.’ Speaking to journalists in New York, Guterres said, ‘Despite the limitations and long odds, we are working to push back against despair, to fight back against disillusion and to find real solutions.’ Despite his outlook on global heating, one positive development, he pointed out, was that on Monday at 3am, ‘delegates at the Cop15 UN biodiversity conference in Montreal agreed on a new global biodiversity framework’.
