Kerry Urges for Action on UN Climate Report

(New York) – US Secretary of State John Kerry has called the latest report on climate change by an influential UN panel “yet another wakeup call,” urging strong action to battle its impacts. “This isn’t a run of the mill report to be dumped in a filing cabinet. This isn’t a political document produced by politicians. It’s science,” US Secretary of State John Kerry said, in a strongly worded statement responding to the findings of UN’s latest Climate Report.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said it was 95 per cent convinced humans had caused more than half of the last six decades’ worth of warming. The Nobel-winning group predicted temperatures would rise from 0.3 to 4.8 degrees Celsius (0.5-8.6 degrees Fahrenheit) this century, and that sea levels would rise between 26 and 82 centimetres (10.4 and 32.8 inches) by 2100. The new document is the first volume in a trilogy that will seek to summarise the status of global warming and its impacts.
“If ever there were an issue that demanded greater cooperation, partnership, and committed diplomacy, this is it”, Kerry said. He called the report “yet another wakeup call: Those who deny the science or choose excuses over action are playing with fire.”
