UN chief says phase-out of fossil fuels 'essential and inevitable'

DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan 17 (Reuters) - United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Wednesday said the phase-out of fossil fuels was essential and inevitable to avoid a global climate catastrophe.
"Let me be very clear again: the phase-out of fossil fuels is essential and inevitable. No amount of spin or scare tactics will change that. Let's hope it doesn't come too late," he said at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
