We work on climate change every day | Grist
[John Kerry] Everywhere I travel as secretary of state – in every meeting, here at home and across the more than 100,000 miles I’ve traveled since I raised my hand and took the oath to serve in this office – I raise the concern of climate change. I do so not because it’s a pet issue or a personal priority, but because it’s critical to the survival of our civilization, and that means it’s a critical mission for me as our country’s top diplomat.Flashback: John Kerry, "the Ted Williams of climate change advocacy", with Exxon stock, five luxury homes, 76-foot yacht, SUV, and a private jet: "I don't know what 'cap and trade' means"
I am passionate about this, not based on ideology, but based on facts and based on science. It’s not just people all over the world crying out for action — it’s the very science that is screaming at us.
As I said in Sweden in May, climate change is truly a life-and-death challenge for all of us.
...For if we waste this opportunity, our failure may be the only thing our generations are remembered for.
