UN chief names four horsemen of apocalypse threatening modern world
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres warns that the four horsemen of apocalypse threaten the modern world.
"I see 'four horsemen’ in our midst," he said in his address to the UN General Assembly. "Four looming threats that endanger 21st-century progress and imperil 21st-century possibilities, Guterres pointed out.
"The first horseman comes in the form of the highest global geostrategic tensions we have witnessed in years," the UN Secretary General said.
Secondly, according to Guterres, the global community is facing "an existential climate crisis," as rising temperatures continue to melt records."
"The third horseman is deep and growing global mistrust," he continued, adding that confidence in political establishments is going down.
The UN Secretary General identified "the dark side of the digital world" as the fourth horseman of the apocalypse.
"New technologies are being abused to commit crimes, incite hate, fake information, oppress and exploit people and invade privacy," TASS cited Guterres as saying.
