COP27 warns 'climate chaos' as UN climate change summit beginsin Egypt. A warning was given that our planet is "sending a distress signal."
Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was responding to a UN report that said the last eight years are on track to be the warmest on record. The report came out on Sunday.
More than 120 world leaders are expected to show up at the COP27 summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. This will start two weeks of talks between countries about how to deal with climate change.
Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, who was in charge of COP27, told world leaders that food and energy crises caused by Russia's invasion of Ukraine shouldn't stop them from taking action on climate change.

In its most recent report, the UN's World Meteorological Organization made it clear that something needs to be done.
Mr. Guterres sent a video message to the conference in which he called the State of the Global Climate Report 2022 a "chronicle of climate chaos."
In it, scientists said that since pre-industrial times, global temperatures have gone up by 1.15°C and that the last eight years are on track to be the warmest on record.
The report also warned about other wide-ranging effects of climate change, such as the speeding up of sea level rise, the loss of record amounts of glacier mass, and heatwaves that set new records.
In light of these findings, Mr. Guterres said that COP27 must be the place for urgent and trustworthy climate action.
Monday will be the real start of COP27. There will be a World Leaders' Summit, where heads of state and government will give five-minute speeches about what they hope to get out of the meeting.

Rishi Sunak, the Prime Minister of the UK, is likely to tell other world leaders that they need to move "further and faster" to switch to renewable energy.
He will also tell the leaders not to go back on the promises they made at the COP26 summit in Glasgow last year.
Monday and Tuesday, the leaders of the world will speak, and after they leave, the conference delegates will get down to the business of negotiating.
At the summit in Glasgow last year, several promises were made: to "phase down" the use of coal, which is one of the most polluting fossil fuels; to stop cutting down forests by 2030, and to cut methane emissions by 30% by 2030.

Developing countries, which are on the front lines of climate change, want to keep the money that was promised to them in the past.
But they also want to talk about "loss and damage" finance, which is money to help them deal with the losses they are already facing because of climate change, not just money to help them get ready for what will happen in the future. After a lot of talks, the issue is now on the official COP27 agenda.
During the two weeks, there will be hundreds of events, including exhibitions, workshops, and cultural performances by youth, business groups, indigenous societies, academics, artists, and fashion communities from all over the world. Protests, which are usually lively parts of COP summits, are likely to be quieter than usual.

Conclusion

Since taking office in 2014, Egypt's President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has led a wide-scale crackdown on dissent. Rights groups say that there have been as many as 60,000 political prisoners in the country and that many of them have been held without trial.
Mr. Shoukry said that there would be a place for protests in Sharm el-Sheikh. But Egyptian activists told the BBC that many local groups couldn't sign up for the conference.
