With national delegations thrashing out an outcome agreement at the UN COP25 climate change conference in Madrid, the UN chief has called on countries to be more ambitious, side strongly with science, and commit to stronger action. “Today is the last day of the COP25 in Madrid,” said Secretary-General António Guterres. “And I appeal to the delegates of all Member States to convey a message of ambition to the world.” He urged all to align “their objectives with science” to make sure that “temperatures will not rise above 1.5C at the end of the century.”
