Drawing comparisons between climate change and extreme weather, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has issued a grave warning: These storms will be the new normal.
While visiting the still storm-ravaged Caribbean to observe the damage, Guterres called Hurricane Irma’s three consecutive days of Category 5 strength the “longest on satellite record,” according to the network.
Guterres said the world has “the tools, the technologies and the wealth to address climate change,” according to CBS, but that we “must show more determination” in addressing it and emphasized the importance of participating in the Paris climate agreement.
The White House said in September that President Donald Trump had not altered his view on climate change, despite scientists’ warnings.
