Climate change, Boris Johnson warns: Rising temperatures are inevitable
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been talking about climate change recently, warning that rising temperatures are inevitable. During a speech at the United Nations, Johnson called on all world leaders to commit to major change in order to combat the greatest warming.
"Four sectors to work in, coal, cars, cash and wood. States must take responsibility for "the destruction they are doing not only to our planet, but to us as well." "It's time for humanity to grow," he said ahead of the Glasgow Climate Summit.
Johnson said it was critical that the outcome of the climate change conference be kept within the target of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees.
"We are not talking about stopping the rise in temperatures, it is unfortunately too late for that, but to curb that rise by more than 1.5 degrees. And that means we have to commit collectively to achieve carbon neutrality from the middle. "And this will be an amazing moment if we can do it, " he said.
At the start of his visit to the United States, Johnson acknowledged that he had changed his mind about the climate crisis in recent years because "facts change and people change their minds."
In 2015, Johnson asserted that " global leaders were driven by a primitive fear that the current warm ambient weather was somehow caused by humanity, and this fear as far as I understand science is unfounded."
He also wrote an article in 2013 suggesting that the government should consider preparing for a mini-ice age triggered by solar activity, relying on a theory discredited by climate denier Piers Corbyn.
