US President Barack Obama attacks political leaders who do not take climate change seriously.
“Any leader who refuses to take this issue seriously, or treats it like a joke, is not fit to lead.
“The time to heed the critics and the cynics and the deniers is past. On this issue, of all issues, there is such a thing as being too late. And that moment is almost upon us.”
Obama said that if swift action was not taken, entire nations will find themselves facing severe, severe problems, more drought, more floods, rising sea levels, greater migration, more refugees, more scarcity, more conflict.
