United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged leaders at the COP28 climate conference to agree on deep cuts to emissions and stop global warming exceeding 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Speaking at the Doha Forum conference, Guterres said that despite pledges, emissions are at a record high and fossil fuels are the major cause.

"I urge leaders at COP28 in Dubai to agree on deep cuts to emissions, in line with the 1.5-degree limit," Guterres said, adding that fossil fuel companies and their backers should use their enormous resources to lead the renewables revolution.
