Secretary of State John Kerry urged all US ambassadors to push the fight against global warming.
US Secretary of State John Kerry has called on American ambassadors around the world to make the fight against climate change a top priority ahead of new UN talks next year.
In his first department-wide policy guidance statement since taking office a year ago, he told his 70,000 staff: “The environment has been one of the central causes of my life.”
“Protecting our environment and meeting the challenge of global climate change is a critical mission for me as our country’s top diplomat,” Kerry said in the letter issued on Friday to all 275 US embassies and across the State Department.
“It’s also a critical mission for all of you: our brave men and women on the frontlines of direct diplomacy,” he added in the document seen by AFP.
Oh, and for the record… The Right Climate Stuff Research Team, a group of retired NASA Apollo scientists and engineers, reported this week that the planet is not in danger of catastrophic man made global warming… Even if we burned up all the world’s recoverable fossil fuels.
