Joe Biden Named John Kerry As Climate Envoy For National Security
Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, one of the foremost architects of the Parish climate agreement, has been elected as Climate envoy for National security by President-elect Joe Biden.
After numerous names were popped up for the Biden transition team’s top positions, John Kerry’s name was finalized. Biden’s team made sure Kerry’s role as the climate envoy will be very notable as he becomes the first member of the National Security Council to converge particularly on climate change.
According to the BBC reports, this was one of Biden’s first step in making good on campaign pledges to defy climate change and climate damage from fossil fuel emanations more broadly and vigorously than any former U.S. administration. And it’s a warning of how the incoming administration is seeing indications that natural disasters from global warming will undermine U.S. defense and encourage disputes worldwide.
John Kerry tweeted – “America will soon have a government that treats the climate crisis as the urgent national security threat it is. I’m proud to partner with the President-elect, our allies, and the young leaders of the climate movement to take on this crisis as the President’s Climate Envoy.”
Biden pledged to get the U.S. back into the Paris climate accord, and in his presidential race, he promised a $2 trillion plan to improve the nation’s transportation and power sectors and buildings to restrain fossil fuel emanations. After the 2018 midterm elections, New York Democratic Republic Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez successfully expedited climate change towards the U.S. political program’s face.
John Kerry was a senator from Massachusetts; in 2004, he failed as the Democratic presidential candidate against George W. Bush, and Obama’s second secretary of state from 2013 to 2017. In 2010 Kerry was one of the primary authors of one of the most significant legislative pushes to date by Congress to limit fossil fuel emissions.
According to the Federal Government’s Grim climate report- the U.S. military warned in a series of stories that climate change is a security threat on many fronts that directly impacts U.S. military infrastructure. By influencing factors, including food and water availability, that can intensify conflict outside U.S. borders.
