Humanity faces ‘collective suicide’ over climate crisis: Guterres

United Nations, July 18 (UNI) Wildfires and heatwaves wreaking havoc across swathes of the globe show humanity facing “collective suicide”, the UN secretary general has warned.
“Half of humanity is in the danger zone, from floods, droughts, extreme storms and wildfires. No nation is immune. Yet we continue to feed our fossil fuel addiction,” Antonio Guterres told ministers from 40 countries meeting to discuss the climate crisis on Monday, reports The Guardian.
“We have a choice. Collective action or collective suicide. It is in our hands,” Guterres added.
