On February 19th, local time, John Kerry, the U.S. President’s special climate envoy, attended the Munich Security Conference and delivered a speech on climate change.
Kerry said that climate change is a security problem affecting the world.
Kerri cited Texas’s extremely cold weather this week due to the melting of Arctic ice, the southward migration of polar vortexes, the emergence of as many as 30 tropical cyclones last year, and the warming rate of Europe exceeding the global average, saying that climate change should be a problem facing all countries around the world.
In his speech, Kerry also said that the world must work together to limit the warming of the earth to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
Kerry said that the United States must remain humble because the United States has “unforgivably absent for four years”, and now the United States has returned to the Paris Agreement and worked with the rest of the world to “achieve net zero growth by 2050 is our last hope.”
