As world leaders gathered at the United Nations General Assembly In New York this week, everyone seemed to agree on one thing: climate change is one of the biggest problems facing the planet. US President Joe Biden rattled off a long list of climate calamities in his speech to the UN on Tuesday, and Colombian President Gustavo Petro said climate change “bared its teeth like never before.” In a passionate opening speech, UN Secretary-General António Guterres noted that the world had only just survived its the hottest summer on record.

But over hours of back-to-back speeches, U.N. officials and world leaders also offered glimpses of the battles ahead: over the responsibility of rich countries to reduce their emissions, over the financing needed for adaptation climate and what exactly it means to act. away from fossil fuels. When many of the same leaders gather in Dubai for the UN COP28 climate conference in November, these disconnections are sure to be at the forefront.
