Climate goal of 1.5C is ‘gasping for breath’, says UN head

The goal of limiting global heating to 1.5C is “gasping for breath”, the UN secretary general has said as he announced a “climate ambition summit” for September. António Guterres said the summit would challenge leaders of governments and businesses to come up with “new, tangible and credible climate action to accelerate the pace of change” and confront the “existential threat” of the climate crisis. “We are still moving in the wrong direction,” he said on Monday. “The 1.5C goal is gasping for breath. National climate plans are falling woefully short. And yet we are not retreating, we are fighting back.”

      If the 1.5 degrees goal is this much suffocated,I tend to imagine that the planet is now doing it's last kick.There's need for quick deployment of climate actions by us all in whatever measure.
