UN Secretary General: "I have spent [...] most of my time and energy on [climate change]."

One year before the end of his second and final term in office, United Nations secretary-general Ban Ki-moon says he has spent “most of my time and energy” at the helm of the global body focused on one issue – climate change.

“I have spent real passion ... and most of my time and energy on this issue,” Ban told the Associated Press in an interview focusing on his work in that area, culminating in the recent Paris climate conference.
