Kerry: Climate Change Belongs on Same List as Terrorism, Nuclear Proliferation, Epidemics

‘no one who has truly considered the science, no one who has truly listened objectively to our national security experts, could reach a different conclusion’

JOHN KERRY: "These are the consequences of climate change, and this is the magnitude of what we are up against. And measured against the array of global threats we face today – and there are many. Terrorism, extremism, epidemics, poverty, nuclear proliferation, all challenges that respect no borders – climate change belongs on that very same list. It is, indeed, one of the biggest threats facing our planet today. And even top military personnel have designated it as a security threat to not just the United States but the world. And no one who has truly considered the science, no one who has truly listened objectively to our national security experts, could reach a different conclusion."
