  • Climate activists are calling for the resignation of World Bank President David Malpass after he failed to state that he accepts the scientific consensus on climate change.
  • Malpass refused several times to answer the question of whether he believed in man-made climate change, raising doubts about the bank’s lack of commitment to stop funding fossil fuels and to instead engage in measures to limit climate change — or  to support countries dealing with loss and damages.
  • Journalist David Gelles asked Malpass to respond to an allegation by former US vice president Al Gore, claiming that he was a climate denier.
