Secretary Kerry recently considered climate change as one of the most urgent issues facing the world.
In a February 16 speech in Jakarta; Kerry got it right on the science, the urgency, and the opportunity to be found in clean energy solutions. He ranked climate change right up there with “terrorism, epidemics, poverty, and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.”
I too believe Secretary Kerry got it right when he stated that we have the technological ability to tackle climate change. This also means that market forces have helped align prices to be more competitive for green energy vs coal, oil or Nat gas.
Bottom line here is that American leadership (and action) is essential to the global solution and sends the strongest message to the world.
The USA is serious about climate change.
