UN chief urges taxes on fossil fuels to fund climate, food price relief

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Tuesday urged wealthy nations to tax fossil fuel companies and use the proceeds to compensate for damage from climate change and provide relief over rising prices.

"Let's tell it like it is - our world is addicted to fossil fuels. It's time for an intervention. We need to hold fossil fuel companies and their enablers to account," Guterres said in an address to open the UN General Assembly.
