World leaders have been urged by King Charles III of Britain to take “genuine transformational action” against climate change at the UN’s COP28 climate talks in Dubai.
Charles emphasized the importance of the conference being a “critical turning point” in the battle against climate change, reports RTE.
The two-day conference saw speeches by heads of state and government in Dubai, where the future of fossil fuels was the main topic of discussion.
“I pray with all my heart that COP28 will be another critical turning point towards genuine transformational action,” Charles told assembled leaders, including Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, France’s President Emmanuel Macron and Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, reports RTE.
“The Earth does not belong to us, we belong to the Earth,” said the king, reports RTE.
The event began with a victory as nations agreed to set up a “loss and damage” fund to support countries affected by natural disasters.
