Ban Ki-Moon, UN Secretary General | July 4, 2008
Climate change and economic “stagflation” threaten the very future of our planet. ++ The only way to solve these challenges is to act globally. ++ Essentially, to resolve the food crisis, export restrictions need to be lifted and a second “green revolution,” - what once transformed Southeast Asia - needs to take place. ++ Climate change can be stopped if new limits are set for greenhouse gases and consumption patterns are adapted in the developed world. ++ If we are serious about promoting change, goals need to be set for as soon as 2020, not 2050.
