Kerry: Paris climate deal alone 'is not enough'

Biden will name a White House climate policy coordinator next month who will "lead efforts here in the U.S. to combat the climate crisis and mobilize action to meet this existential threat."

John Kerry, tapped by President-elect Joe Biden to serve as climate czar, said Tuesday (Nov. 22) the incoming administration would look to retake a leadership role on the international stage when it comes to fighting climate change.

"Mr. president-elect, you've put forward a bold transformative climate plan. But you've also underscored that no country alone can solve this challenge," Kerry said as Biden publicly introduced his national security team during remarks in Delaware.

"You're right, to rejoin Paris on Day 1," he added, referring to the Paris Agreement. The Trump administration formally withdrew from the multinational climate pact earlier this month.

"And you're right to recognize that Paris alone is not enough."

Biden has proposed a $2 trillion climate plan that would push the U.S. to net-zero emissions by 2050. But Kerry noted on Tuesday that the U.S., which is responsible for about 15 percent of all emissions, will have to help other countries meet similar targets - a move that presents an opportunity to boost jobs and sell U.S. technology.

"Failure is not an option. Succeeding together means tapping into the best of American ingenuity and creativity and diplomacy, from brain power to alternative energy power," Kerry said.

"No one should doubt the determination of this president [and] vice president. They shouldn't doubt the determination of a country that went to the moon, cured supposedly incurable diseases, and beat back global tyranny in World War Two. This kind of crisis demands that kind of leadership again," he added. "And President Biden will provide it."

How the Oil Industry Played Politics With the Planet's Fate

A US presidency that is hostile to modern science — and especially earth and environmental science

"The global climate catastrophe gets short shrift, largely because powerful fossil fuel producers still have enormous political clout, following decades-long campaigns to sow doubt about whether anthropogenic emissions are really causing planetary warming."

-- Robert N. Proctor, professor of the history of science at Stanford University

Climate Change is the defining issue of our time and we are at a defining moment. From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic flooding, the impacts of climate change are global in scope and unprecedented in scale. -- United Nations
