WASHINGTON — While conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Ukraine are dominating headlines (or should be) across the world, the United Nations (U.N.) released a report warning people about global warming. Or, in other words, the U.N. warned the world about global warming’s latest new reincarnation called “climate change.”
Reuters reported that U.N. said the ozone layer is beginning to recover after years of being dangerously thin. The U.N. said that the ban on carbon dioxide and other gases in 1987 contributed to the progress.
The World Meteorological Organization and the U.N. Environment Programme said that it is an encouraging step, but said, “This should encourage us to display the same level of urgency and unity to tackle the even greater challenge of tackling climate change.”
