UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, whose government is hosting the COP26 talks, warned Monday that humanity has run down the clock on climate change.

“Humanity has long since run down the clock on climate change. It’s one minute to midnight and we need to act now,” Johnson told delegates, speaking at the opening ceremony of the World Leaders Summit.

“If we don’t get serious about climate change today, it will be too late for our children to do so tomorrow,” Johnson said.

“We have to move from talk and debate and discussion to concerted, real-world action on coal, cars, cash and trees.”
