Sen. Kerry: Climate Change "As Dangerous" As Iran And Nuclear Weapons

"I believe that the situation we face, Mr. President, is as dangerous as any of the sort of real crises that we talk about. Today we had a hearing in the Foreign Relations Committee on the subject of Syria, and we all know what’s happening with respect to Iran, and nuclear weapons and the possibility even of a war,” Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) said on the Senate floor on Wednesday.

“Well, this issue actually is of as significant a level of importance, because it affects life itself on the planet. Because it affects ecosystems on which the oceans and the land depend for the relationship of the warmth of our earth and the amount of moisture that there is and all of the interactions that occur as a consequence of our climate," he said.
