As climate records are shattered, and emissions continue to rise, on Wednesday, June 5 at 10:00 AM EDT the UN Secretary-General António Guterres will set out some hard-hitting truths about the state of the climate, the grotesque risk leaders are running, and what companies and countries – particularly the G7 and the G20 – need to do over the next eighteen months to salvage humanity's chances of a liveable future. The Secretary-General will also share new data from the World Meteorological Organisation and The Copernicus Climate Change Service. The Secretary-General will be joined by Michael R. Bloomberg, UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy on Climate Ambition and Solutions and Sean M. Decatur, President of the American Museum of Natural History who will deliver opening remarks. Independent journalist Femi Oke will moderate the event.
