U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon and Nobel prize winner Al Gore pleaded to top CEOs of companies, such as, PepsiCo, Nestle, BP, to take action against climate change.

“We have to do it this year. Not next year. This year,” Gore said. “The clock is ticking, because Mother Nature does not do bailouts.”

“Continuing to pour trillions of dollars into fossil-fuel subsidies is like investing in subprime real estate,” Ban said. “Our carbon-based infrastructure is like a toxic asset that threatens the portfolio of global goods, from public health to food security.”
