The urgency to save the earth cannot be ignored nor delayed.
The time for action by all nations is now.
‘Act now to slow climate change and protect the planet.’
‘Over the course of three decades, the Montreal Protocol has been a great success.’
‘The cooperation seen under the protocol is exactly what is needed now to take on #climatechange.’
These are the words of United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres.
The need to heed this timely call can not be emphasized. Every hand must be on deck to achieve this tall order.
But leaders, particularly in industrialized nations, who constitute the largest pool of polluters must take the lead to avoid the looming catastrophe.
