NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (MAY 30, 2017) (REUTERS) ***WARNING CONTAINS FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY*** UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY-GENERAL ANTONIO GUTERRES WALKING TO PODIUM (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY-GENERAL ANTONIO GUTERRES, SAYING: "Allow me to be blunt. The world is in a mess. Countries and communities everywhere are facing pressures that are being exacerbated by mega-trends like population growth, rapid and many times chaotic urbanization, food insecurity, water scarcity, massive movements of population and the list can go on and on. But one overriding mega-trend is far and away at the top of that list - climate change. Climate change is a direct threat in itself, but (also) a multiplier of many other threats from poverty, to displacement, to conflict. The effects of climate change are already being felt around the world and they are dangerous and they are accelerating. And so my argument today is that it is absolutely essential that the world implements the Paris Agreement and that we fulfill that duty with increased ambition. And the reason is three fold. Climate change is undeniable. Climate action is unstoppable. And climate solutions provide opportunities that are unmatchable." GUTERRES TALKING (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY-GENERAL ANTONIO GUTERRES, SAYING: "If any government doubts the global will and need for this accord, that is reason for all others to unite even stronger and stay the course." GUTERRES TALKING (SOUNDBITE) (English) UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY-GENERAL ANTONIO GUTERRES, SAYING: "The real danger is not the threat to one's economy that comes from acting. It is instead the risk to one's economy by failing to act. And the message is simple: the sustainability train has left the station. Get on board or get left behind."
