U.N. Secretary General António Guterres warned Tuesday nations must "get on board" with the Paris climate agreement "or get left behind" – even as President Donald Trump is reportedly considering pulling out of the deal.

At a speech delivered at New York University, Guterres delivered his first public remarks on climate change, focusing on the agreement 147 parties, including the United States, have signed to reduce global carbon emissions.

"The message is simple: The sustainability train has left the station," he declared. "Get on board or get left behind."

Gutteres argued "it is absolutely essential that the world fulfill the Paris Agreement."

"Climate change is undeniable; climate action is unstoppable," he asserted, calling it "a menace to jobs, business, and property . . ."

"If any government doubts the global needs for these accords, it is reason for the others . . . to unite even stronger and stay the course," he said.
