Kerry Could Spearhead Bilateral Climate Change Agreements

Feb 1, 2013
(Technology Review)

In his inaugural address, President Obama claimed that he wants to take action on climate change. But he’s spoken forcefully on the issue before, only to drop it when other priorities emerge.  So we’re keeping an eye on key Obama administration nominations to get a sense of how serious he is about climate—especially given the fact that if much is going to be done he’ll need to call on his administration to help convince the public that action is necessary (see “Obama Still Needs to Make the Case for Dealing with Climate Change”).

The nomination of John Kerry, who was confirmed as secretary of state this week, is certainly in line with a push for climate change action.
