UN chief calls for climate change breakthrough



The head of the United Nations has called on world leaders to work together to reduce climate change, following the publication of a new report highlighting the potential results of human impact on the environment.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called for concerted action from global leaders in the wake of yesterday''s (November 18th) publication of an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report.

The study highlighted an increased likelihood of extreme weather conditions and rising global sea levels, with significant consequences for billions of people.

Speaking at the launch of the report, Mr Ki-moon said: "All humanity must now assume responsibility for climate change."

"We can usher in a new era of global partnership, one that helps lift all boats on the rising tide of climate-friendly development," he added.

Mr Ki-moon''s comments, and the report, come in the lead up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference, to be held on Bali from December 3rd.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18360641-ADNFCR
