Prime minister says warning from UN scientists should give world a wake-up call ahead of Cop26 summit
- Major climate changes inevitable and irreversible – IPCC’s starkest warning yet
- IPCC’s verdict on climate crimes of humanity: guilty as hell
Boris Johnson has described the latest warnings from UN scientists about the extent of the climate crisis as “sobering reading” that should provide the world with a wake-up call ahead of the Cop26 summit.
With the global climate conference due to open in Glasgow in less than three months, the British prime minister said he hoped the report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) would highlight the need for action now.
