Former U.S. President Barack Obama told the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Glasgow on Monday that most nations failed to meet their commitments made in the 2015 Paris Climate Conference agreement and the world is nowhere near where it needs to be in confronting climate change.

He called it "particularly discouraging" that the leaders of China and Russia, two of the largest emitters, declined to even attend the conference, and both nations have demonstrated what he said "appears to be a dangerous lack of urgency" on climate change.
