Held in Madrid after being moved from Chile, the conference brings together people from around the globe to address next steps in the UN's climate change process.

The causes of this increase are the use of gas and oil, despite the calls of global scientific institutions to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels, due to their contribution to the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that lead to global warming.

He also called on governments to ensure that at least Dollars 100 billion a year is available to developing countries for measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to build resilience to climate change.

Speaking at the same event, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said with climate change impacts becoming ever more risky and apparent, COP25 must convey to the world a firm determination to change course.

The first week of COP25 includes discussion of technical aspects and negotiations.

The pope met the young Swedish activist in the Vatican last April and urged her to continue her crusade against climate change.

The Climate Summit, which should lay the bases for a new phase of climate action, starts today in Madrid.

The Roundtable's joint principles for climate policy, first agreed in 2015, set out common ground on the goals of climate policy and how to meet them.

The members of the climate movement then staged a performance in which several activists lied in the fountain on the square and threw life jackets into it, symbolizing the refugees who had drowned in the Mediterranean in attempts to get from Africa to Europe and victims of climate change who had died in floods. The 25 stands for 25th annual meeting.

Ahead of the conference the UN Secretary General António Guterres warned that "the point of no return was no longer over the horizon".

The United Nation's posted information about the conference on their website.

The news was broken by Sebastián Navarro, secretary-general of Capital Cities to Combat Climate Change (CC35), who said the "Terminator" star could not attend for "personal reasons", adding that the USA was experiencing a high number of storms which have precluded the Last Action Hero from flying to Madrid.

He also said that creating a worldwide market for emissions, which is a key element of the sixth article of the Paris accord, remained one of the most contentious issues for negotiators.

"From this perspective, we must seriously ask ourselves if there is the political will to allocate with honesty, responsibility and courage, more human, financial and technological resources to mitigate the negative effects of climate change, as well as to help the poorest and most vulnerable populations who suffer from them the most".

Today we release an update that strengthens these principles.
