United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's Statements

H.E. Mr. Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, gave remarks yesterday at the conferral of the Elizabeth Haub Award for Environmental Diplomacy, which Pace Law hands out each year. You can read the Secretary-General's thoughts on the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals here:

I thank the Pace University School of Law and the Haub family for inviting me to honour the recipients of the Elizabeth Haub Prize for Environmental Diplomacy.

"Maybe the idea of assigning refugees to the nations that caused the climate to change can spur a less-pessimistic future. If we don’t want millions of people seeking haven here — or dying while they try — then the United States and other industrialized countries need to become far more aggressive in cutting their greenhouse gas emissions."

Rising sea levels threaten to displace millions of people. It’s only fair to move them to the countries that caused the problem.

Oslo creates world's first 'highway' to protect endangered bees

“The workers live about 60 days,” she explained with a glint in her eye...During their lives, they don’t produce more than a spoon of honey,” she added, before turning to her accountancy skills to do the maths. “If we did their job, paid at the minimum wage, a pot of honey would cost $182,000.”

Norway’s capital is creating a route filled with flowers and ‘green roofs’ to protect endangered pollinators essential to food production

"The high seas, which lie beyond the jurisdiction of any nation, cover nearly 50% of the planet. They host the largest habitat for life on Earth, yet suffer from chronic neglect."

A major step towards a legally-binding deal for the high seas

Wood pellet exports wreaking havoc on climate and forests | Southern Environmental Law Center

“Soaring demand for this woody fuel has led to the construction of more than two dozen pellet factories in the Southeast in the past decade, along with special port facilities in Virginia and Georgia where mountains of pellets are loaded onto Europe-bound freighters. European officials promote the trade as part of the fight against climate change. Burning 'biomass' from trees instead of coal, they say, means fewer greenhouse gases in the atmosphere."
