Kerry: Climate change as dangerous as WMDs
Kerry, who delivered the speech on Sunday in the capital, Jakarta,
spoke critically about climate change sceptics adding that everyone and
every country must take responsibility and act immediately.
"We simply don't have time to let a few loud interest groups hijack
the climate conversation," he said, referring to what he called "big
companies" that "don't want to change and spend a lot of money" to act
to reduce the risks.
He later singled out big oil and coal concerns as the primary offenders.
"The science is unequivocal, and those who refuse to believe it are simply burying their heads in the sand,'' Kerry said.
