Sec. of State John Kerry calls on US envoys to make climate change a ‘top priority’ – Issues policy guidance to his staff of 70,000: ‘The environment has been one of the central causes of my life’
Kerry: 'Meeting the challenge of global climate change is a critical mission for me as our country's top diplomat' - 'Protecting our environment and meeting the challenge of global climate change is a critical mission for me as our country's top diplomat' In his policy guidance, Kerry set out a seven step program to enhance the focus on tackling climate change including boosting multilateral and bilateral efforts. 'We're talking about the future of our earth and of humanity. We need to elevate the environment in everything we do,' he said. It was, he said 'our call to conscience as citizens of this fragile planet we inhabit.'
Climate Depot Response: 'This is all about John Kerry's world. Who cares if he believes that 'the environment has been one of the central causes of my life'. U.S. national security demands that Kerry rise above his personal agenda to leave a political legacy for himself. Kerry is steering the Obama administration’s international focus to embarrassingly bad man-made climate fears. After more than 40 years in public life, John Kerry is still seeking a legacy, and he has chosen global warming as his ticket. Kerry has his sights set on committing the U.S. to a new U.N. global climate treaty in Paris in 2014. And he is using his pulpit as secretary of state to entangle the U.S. into a sequel to the Kyoto Protocol.'
