(New York Times) UNITED NATIONS — Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned Monday that the world is facing “a direct existential threat” and must rapidly shift from dependence on fossil fuels by 2020 to prevent “runaway climate change.”

The U.N. chief called the crisis urgent and decried the lack of global leadership to address global warming.
