Schwarzenegger reminded the participants via a live video transmission of the urgency of the climate crisis, which he said is the real pandemic. The many prominent messages from all over the world included one from Prince Charles and also from Spain's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez. In addition, Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke in L.A. with former Secretary of State and Democrat John Kerry about the role of the USA in the fight against climate change. Austrian Federal Chancellor Sebastian Kurz considers the struggle against the coronavirus pandemic to also be an opportunity to transform the global economy at the same time.
