Kerry Insists Climate Change is a National Security Threat

Secretary of State John Kerry doubled down “on his comments calling climate change a major national security threat,” The Hill reports.  

“Kerry has come under fire from conservatives after calling global warming one of the “most fearsome” weapons of mass destruction threatening to destroy the planet during a speech in Indonesia earlier this month… Kerry championed the fight against climate change as a senator and has continued to make it a top priority as America’s top diplomat. He oversaw the signing of an agreement with China on cutting emissions. The Asian power is the world’s biggest greenhouse gas emitter.”  

Said Kerry: “What I said about climate change is that it’s one of the … two or three weapons, or instruments, of mass destruction, which it is. It’s having a profound impact on a global basis, and will continue to.”
