David Nussbaum, chief executive of WWF in Britain, said: "the scale of destruction should be a wake-up call to us all. we all have an interest, and a responsibility, to act to ensure we protect what we all value: a healthy future for both people and nature."
WWF-UK Chief Executive David Nussbaum, who attended the UN Climate Summit added: "ambitious and focused negotiations over an international climate deal to be agreed in paris next year are a clear opportunity to control, and hopefully reverse, the trends highlighted in the living planet report. concluding a global agreement that sets countries on course to build low carbon economies is essential, and our reliance on fossil fuels is currently the dominant factor in driving dangerous climate change."
