While the entire world is still battling with Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it has been hinted also to prepare ahead against coming climate disruption.

Speaking on Wednesday, April 22 at the International Mother Earth Day, the United Nations  Secretary-General,  António  Guterres, called the attention of world leaders to prepare as he foresees another crisis coming different from the current COVID-19 pandemic.

He noted that the world is about to be faced with another deep emergency, adding that the biodiversity was declining sharply and climate disruption approaching a point of no return

He said, “although the world is currently occupied with the COVID-19 pandemic, the world was facing another deep emergency which is the planet’s unfolding environmental crisis”

Guterres however, urged world leaders to take decisive global action to halt the coronavirus and the “existential climate disruption threat from destroying the planet.

He added, “First, as we spend huge amounts of money to recover from the coronavirus, we must deliver new jobs and businesses through a clean, green transition.

“Second, where taxpayers’ money is used to rescue businesses, it needs to be tied to achieving green jobs and sustainable growth.

“Third, fiscal firepower must drive a shift from the grey to green economy, and make societies and people more resilient. We need an end to fossil fuel subsidies and the need for environmental polluters to be held accountable and made to pay compensation.”

“Climate risks and opportunities must be incorporated into the financial system as well as all aspects of public policymaking and infrastructure,’’ Guterres reiterated.
