The global response and fallout from the coronavirus pandemic serves as a dress rehearsal for a worldwide climate catastrophe, the head of the UN’s sustainable business agency has warned.

Lise Kingo, executive director of the UN Global Compact, insisted in an interview with The Guardian that there were “very, very clear connections” linking the current health crisis, climate change issues and the Black Lives Matter protests that have spread across the globe.

The coronavirus pandemic is “just a fire drill” for what’s coming, she told the news outlet. Government actions purportedly taken to stop the spread of the virus have crippled economies across the globe and it has been attributed to widespread social unrest – making her warning particularly sobering.
