(Portions of this full interview have also been shown as part of the GZERO World with Ian Bremmer episode, "How A War-Distracted World Staves Off Irreversible Damage," available to view here.

Russia's illegal invasion of Ukraine making climate change a “kind of second-order issue” (even as 50 million Pakistanis have been displaced by flooding, and more than 1,000 killed) - with "irreversible consequences" and "irreparable damage" coming "very soon" - "a world that is facing destruction everywhere" ... the threat that the world may not have enough food in 2023 due to fertilizer shortages ... there's a lot of bad news in the world, as UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres discusses with Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

Still, there are paths to solutions - as with the grain deal that Guterres helped to (discreetly) broker between Russia and Ukraine - if only the world's leaders will work together.
