Madrid, Spain – United Nations leaders and delegates arrived at COP25 on Monday in Madrid to begin a two-week summit on climate change, amid dire warnings from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres of the fast-rising perils of a global environmental challenge.

The UN Conference for Climate Change began a day after Guterres argued that climate change can only be kept under control if carbon neutrality was reached by 2050, greenhouse gas emissions were cut by 45 percent of 2010 levels by 2030 and global temperatures increases were limited to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit).
