Pope Francis said that the time to do something was now or never."We are on the brink. We are on the brink of a suicide, to use a strong word, and I am sure that most of those at the COP have this conscience, and want to do something," he said. . Chinese President Xi Jinping said that the conference "is not a finish line, but a new starting point". Russian President Vladimir Putin called climate change "one of the greatest threats humanity is facing."
