News in Levels, Climate change talks – level 2

Climate change talks – level 2

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres met with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and more than 35 other world leaders.

Guterres said that world leaders did not work hard enough to stop climate change. He said that it was necessary to lower emissions and to help poorer countries make cleaner energy.

This year´s summer was full of natural disasters. Wildfires destroyed a large part of the US and floods hit the US, China, and Europe, too. There were cyclones in places where they never were before.

Guterres said that it was necessary to lower emissions by 45% by 2030. The latest numbers show that countries lowered emissions, but it was not enough. If the situation stays as it is now, the emissions will grow by 16% in 2030.

Difficult words: climate change (the change of weather on Earth), cyclone (a tropical storm), emission (the gas, dust, and other things from vehicles or factories).

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres met with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and more than 35 other world leaders. 国連事務総長のアントニオ・グテーレスは、英国のボリス・ジョンソン首相と35人以上の他の世界の指導者と会談しました。

Guterres said that world leaders did not work hard enough to stop climate change. グテーレスは、世界の指導者たちは気候変動を食い止めるのに十分な努力をしなかったと述べた。 He said that it was necessary to lower emissions and to help poorer countries make cleaner energy. 彼は、排出量を削減し、貧しい国々がよりクリーンなエネルギーを作るのを助ける必要があると述べました。 Он сказал, что необходимо снизить выбросы и помочь более бедным странам производить более чистую энергию.

This year´s summer was full of natural disasters. 今年の夏は自然災害でいっぱいでした。 Лето этого года было полно стихийных бедствий. Wildfires destroyed a large part of the US and floods hit the US, China, and Europe, too. 山火事は米国の大部分を破壊し、洪水は米国、中国、ヨーロッパにも打撃を与えました。 Лесные пожары уничтожили большую часть США, наводнения также поразили США, Китай и Европу. There were cyclones in places where they never were before. 今までになかった場所にサイクロンがありました。

Guterres said that it was necessary to lower emissions by 45% by 2030. グテーレスは、2030年までに排出量を45%削減する必要があると述べた。 The latest numbers show that countries lowered emissions, but it was not enough. 最新の数値は、各国が排出量を削減したことを示していますが、それだけでは不十分でした。 Последние цифры показывают, что страны снизили выбросы, но этого было недостаточно. If the situation stays as it is now, the emissions will grow by 16% in 2030. 現在の状況が続くと、2030年には排出量が16%増加します。 Если ситуация останется такой, как сейчас, выбросы вырастут на 16% в 2030 году.

Difficult words: climate change (the change of weather on Earth), cyclone (a tropical storm), emission (the gas, dust, and other things from vehicles or factories). 難しい言葉:気候変動(地球の天候の変化)、サイクロン(熱帯低気圧)、排出物(ガス、ほこり、その他の車両や工場からの物)。
