John Kerry, the climate envoy for President Joe Biden, sounded the alarm of the upcoming climate crisis.
Kerry told the reporter that the winter weather seen across the country could be the “new normal” and needs to be prevented by cutting global carbon emissions. Friday in an interview with Ben Tracy, CBS This Morning
“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,” Kerry asserted. “It is coming from global warming, and it threatens all the normal weather patterns.”
He added, “Even if we did everything that we said we were going to do when we signed up in Paris. We would see a rise in the Earth’s temperature to somewhere around 3.7 degrees or more, which is catastrophic.”
Kerry went on to say, “we have nine years left” to “avert the worst consequences” of the climate crisis. He said the United States’ decision to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord is because “there’s no room for B.S. anymore.”
“The scientists told us three years ago we had 12 years to avert the worst consequences of the climate crisis. We are now three years gone, so we have nine years left,” he warned.
