Secretary of State John Kerry February 26, 2013 : 1:25 PM

Our new Secretary of State wasted no time in calling for action to avert the climate crisis:

"John Kerry used his first major speech as secretary of State to make that case that failing to confront climate change means missing big economic opportunities — and worse."

“If we waste this opportunity, it may be the only thing our generation — generations — are remembered for. We need to find the courage to leave a far different legacy,” Kerry said in a wide-ranging address Wednesday at the University of Virginia."

"Kerry again signaled that he hopes to use his role as top diplomat to promote green energy technologies, arguing they can provide a major boost to U.S. industries in the “next great revolution in our marketplace.”

"He also cited the prospect of new markets for “America’s second-to-none innovators and entrepreneurs.”
