Kerry says global warming is the most fearsome WMD
February 17 , 2014
John Kerry recently spoke about the dangers of global warming and called those who don't believe it "flat Earthers."
"The science is unequivocal," he said, "and those who refuse to believe it are simply burying their heads in the sand. We don't have time for a meeting anywhere of the Flat Earth Society."
He told his Indonesian audience that the country is on the "front line of climate change." Kerry's public push also included a comparison of climate change with "terrorism, epidemics, poverty, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction: all challenges that know no borders."
US officials said the fact that China and the US would be working together, might inspire other nations to try and combat climate change as well.
