Kerry made the remarks as part of a pep talk for negotiators working through the weekend to amend a 1987 treaty called the Montreal Protocol to deal with the chemicals used as refrigerants. "Yesterday, I met in Washington with 45 nations — defense ministers and foreign ministers — as we were working together on the challenge of [the Islamic State], and terrorism," he said. "It's hard for some people to grasp it, but what we — you — are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself."
Kerry: 'It would be an act of extraordinary danger to our country because of the path it would put us on both in terms of our global leadership on the issue as well as the actual policies we need to implement and it would in the end be an act of ignorance, of utter unbelievable contemptuous ignorance to get rid of something that the world has worked for since 1992 in Rio.'

Climate Depot response: 'Sec. Kerry quite simply used his grandkid as a prop of utter nonsense while he signed away U.S. sovereignty by signing an agreement that pretends to control global climate and weather events and is designed to redistribute wealth, centrally plan our future with UN bureaucrats gaining more power over our nation and our lives. Are we supposed to be impressed?'
