Boris Johnson on climate: If leaders don’t act, civilization will end in ruins

According to Johnson, the rich nations that are causing global warming must bear the burden of combating climate change.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday that if world leaders do not take action to combat climate change, modern civilization could soon be in ruins like ancient Rome. He told reporters on a plane to the Italian capital, where he will attend the G20 summit at the weekend. The Associated Press reported this.

Johnson said the ruins of the Eternal City “are a great reminder to us today that humanity, civilization and society can go forward and backward, and when things start to deteriorate, they can deteriorate very quickly.”

The British prime minister wants to try to secure carbon-reduction commitments from the leaders of the world’s largest economies. The G20 countries also include the world’s largest producers of greenhouse gases, such as China, the United States, India, and Russia.

Johnson will urge G-20 leaders to act faster. He said the world’s rich nations, which have become rich through the use of fossil fuels, which are causing global warming, must bear the burden of combating climate change.

However, Johnson expressed doubts about whether the UN climate conference COP26, which begins on Sunday in Glasgow, Scotland, will achieve its goal of committing itself to the necessary steps to limit global warming to 1.5°C from pre-industrial levels.
