Biden Names John Kerry as His Climate Envoy

President-elect Joe Biden is creating a new role on the National Security Council (NSC) devoted to combating climate change, a sign the incoming administration plans to make the issue one of its priorities.

On Monday, Biden’s transition team announced that former Secretary of State John Kerry would serve as the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and will be a member of the NSC. 

In a statement, the transition team said, “This marks the first time that the NSC will include an official dedicated to climate change, reflecting the president-elect’s commitment to addressing climate change as an urgent national security issue.”

Kerry said in a tweet, “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,” he added.

Check out some of the reactions:

In 2019, Kerry launched World War Zero, a coalition of world and military leaders and Hollywood stars to highlight the national security threat posed by climate change.

He was also influential in crafting the 2015 Climate Paris Accord. 

Earlier this year, Biden named Kerry to be a co-chair of his campaign’s climate change task force.

  1. The only National Security threat from Climate Change, is letting the scam continue under the direction of a traitor like Kerry.
