French astronaut Thomas Pesquet has used a video call from space to raise the alarm further as negotiators, officials and activists gather at a United Nations climate change conference in Glasgow.
He also spent 197 days in orbit during the 2016-2017 holiday season.
‘We didn’ t see all the regions burn, in Canada, in California,’ he said of the International Space Station.
The French astronaut Thomas Pesquet gave a video call from space describing the impact of global warming as part of an international trip to the International Space Station.
Pesquet travels to the space station for the second time.
Pesquet told French President Emmanuel Macron by phone on Thursday that the space station’s portholes “symbolized the intrusive fragility of mankind’s only home.”
Macron said negotiators in Scotland at the United Nations climate change conference should aim to “accelerate the response of humanity.”
The destructive effects of human activities became increasingly apparent, Pesquet said.
