John Knox's Interview with UN Radio on the Effects of Increased Global Temperature

On May 4, 2015, UN Radio interviewed Special Rapporteur John Knox on the impact of an incremental increase in global temperature on human rights. Based on a report by the Climate Vulnerable Forum, Knox explained how just a half of a degree Celsius in global temperature will negatively impact the enjoyment of human rights. Knox called on countries to mitigate the harm caused by climate change rather than adapting to its effects.
