Warning! The Continued Use of Fossil Fuels will Lead to Catastrophe

Secretary General of the United Nations, António Guterres said that countries will soon experience a climate disaster if they continue to depend on the use of fossil fuels. The ambitious statements and pledges of state leaders at the climate meeting in Glasgow are "naive optimism", according to Guterres, because countries have by no means achieved their goal of limiting global temperature rise by the end of the century. Not only that, the pollution that continues to heat the planet and the increase in global emissions and coal will also accelerate the occurrence of climate disasters [3].
