U.N. Climate Summit Sets Stage For New National Emissions Promises

Speaking at the climate summit, Ms Thunberg said: "You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words and yet I'm one of the lucky ones".

The filing comes as the United Nations hosts a Climate Action Summit on the first day of its General Assembly, where dozens of world leaders are unveiling plans for reducing their countries' carbon footprints.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres opened the Climate Action Summit by saying: "Earth is issuing a chilling cry: Stop". We have not seen global emissions drop dramatically - they dropped for a couple of years but crept back up.
