John Kerry on climate change: ‘Science is screaming’ for new energy controls
Question of the Day
He also said, in honor of Monday’s Earth Day message: “The science is screaming at all of us and demands action. From the far reaches of Antarctica’s Ross Sea to tropical wetlands in Southeast Asia, we have a responsibility to safeguard and sustainably manage our plant’s natural resources, and the United States remains firm in its commitment to addressing global environmental challenges.”
Mr. Kerry said he’s been involved in Earth Day since its inception in 1970 and has used the April 22 day to think of ways to “safeguard our God-given natural resources,” various media reported he said. He also made clear during his remarks that what one nation does in terms of environmentalism has impact on other nations — and suggested more regulatory clampdown was on the way.
“As was clear in President Obama’s second inaugural address and in his State of the Union message, the United States is committed to meeting this challenge head on, working in cooperation with our partners around the world through ambitious actions to reduce emissions, transform our energy economy and help the most vulnerable cope with the effects of climate change,” he said in widely published remarks.
