Climate change. – The United States is stopping a United Nations initiative to create a climate warning system

The United States has blocked a Germany-led initiative at the United Nations to create an early warning system to identify potential conflicts due to climate change, diplomatic sources told the data protection agency.

The project that Germany is submitting to the Security Council envisages the creation of a High Commissioner for Climate Issues, who will report regularly on possible conflicts.

The approval of the German initiative required the approval of at least nine of the 15 members of the Security Council without one of the five permanent members – the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China – having vetoed.

Germany had support from nine countries and abstention from Russia and China, but US officials made it clear in previous negotiations that they would not support the project, which is why it was parked.
