Climate change talks – level 1

28-09-2021 07:00

World leaders meet in the UK last week. They speak about climate change. Climate change is a big change in the world’s weather. People know about it around the 1950s. Scientists believe the people make big changes on climate change.

Antonio Guterres is the Secretary-General of the United Nations. He speaks to world leaders. He says that they must work harder. They must stop climate change.

Countries must reduce emissions. Richer countries must help poorer countries. Many countries reduce emissions since 2015. It is not enough. They must reduce more emissions by 2030.

This year’s summer is full of natural disasters. There are wildfires, floods, and big storms in many parts of the world. The situation is very serious. There will be another meeting in Scotland in six weeks. World leaders must decide what to do.

Difficult words: reduce emissions (to make less gasses, dust, and other things from cars and factories), natural disaster (a disaster that happens from nature), flood (when there is too much water, and it gets to people’s homes or businesses).
