The levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, the main driver of climate change, have hit a new record high, the UN said Thursday, warning that the time to act was running out.
Ahead of the COP 24 climate summit in Poland next month, top United Nations officials are again trying to raise the pressure on governments to meet the pledge of limiting warming to the less than two degrees Celsius, enshrined in the 2015 Paris accord.
Without rapid cuts in CO2 and other greenhouse gases, climate change will have increasingly destructive and irreversible impacts on life on Earth, the head of the World Meteorological Organization Petteri Taalas said in a statement. The window of opportunity for action is almost closed.
In an open letter to all states ahead of COP24, UN rights chief Michelle Bachelet warned of cataclysmic consequences if the world does not reverse course. Entire nations, ecosystems, peoples and ways of life could simply cease to exist, she said, citing evidence that nations are not on track to meet the commitments made in Paris.
US President Donald Trump, who pulled his government out of the Paris agreement, again on Thursday appeared to cast doubt on climate science. Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS Whatever happened to Global Warming? he said in a tweet.
Asked to respond to Trump, deputy WMO chief Elena Manaenkova told reporters that the science underpinning global warming was unequivocal, without challenging the US leader directly.

Let’s just cut to the chase: The United States must die.
Pure unadulterated crap. Never let the truth get in the way of the agenda. The UN is nothing more than a parasite living off the blood of the US taxpayer.
Maybe the Poles could do us a favor and disperse the meeting with riot police
Enough of these climate change/global warming/CO2 lies!
Therein lies the problem, supposition stated as dogma.
So tell china to obey the rules too—the biggest polluter.
CO2 is NOT a pollutant, but you knew that, didn't you?
For the 927th time, “the time to act is running out!!”
Yet... the thermosphere is thinning and it is getting much colder.
Global hoax and real reason for coming global cooling.
My plants are overjoyed. The u.n........WFC?
