WORLD ‘MUST RAISE AMBITION ON CLIMATE CHANGE’, SAYS KERRY
The world has to “raise its ambition” if it is to properly tackle climate change, new climate envoy John Kerry has said.
Writing on twitter, Kerry, who previously served as Secretary of State, said: “Today, @POTUS rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement, restoring America’s credibility and commitment — setting a floor, not a ceiling, for our climate leadership.
“Working together, the world must and will raise ambition. It’s time to get to work – the road to Glasgow begins here.”
This November, Glasgow will host the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference, with the parties of the Paris Agreement expected to enhance their commitments for the first time since the original accord.
