“We have nine years left… to avert climate catastrophe,” said President Biden’s climate envoy John Kerry on CBS News on Friday.
Kerry was responding to a question from Ben Tracy on the time we still have left “to avert climate catastrophe?”
On Friday, the United States officially rejoined the “Paris climate accord.” Former President Trump pulled out of the world accord, announcing that the U.S. would cease all participation in the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change mitigation, contending that the agreement would “undermine” the U.S. economy, and put the U.S. “at a permanent disadvantage.”
Kerry also attempted to explain the arctic cold and snow covering most of United States impacting states like Texas and other southern areas.
“It is directly related to the warming, even though your instinct is to say, wait a minute, this is the new ice age. But it’s not. It is coming from the global warming and it threatens all the normal weather patterns.”
“There is no room for bull***t anymore. There’s no faking it on this one,” said Kerry.
So the next thing is for the Biden administration to announce a much more ambitious emissions target. They say they’re going to do that by Earth Day in April.
