Between the Al Hous earthquake and the hurricane in MoroccoYamIn the Libya and Chile floods, the thin thread that connects all these disasters is that “climate change has become a serious challenge that the world must face together seriously, and with swift action.”

Volker Dürk criticized world leaders for taking a short-term view when dealing with the climate crisis.
