I’m not sure how it happened but, for some strange reason, Secretary of State John Kerry can’t stop talking about the weather.
In February he said climate change is as big a threat to the world as terrorism, poverty, and weapons of mass destruction. Last month Kerry said climate change is the “biggest challenge of all we face right now.” And today, at a ceremony to appoint Texas lawyer Shaarik Zafar as special representative to Muslim communities, Kerry told the crowd that it is America’s Biblical “responsibility” to “confront climate change.”
“Our faiths are inextricably linked on any number of things that we must confront and deal with in policy concepts today. Our faiths are inextricably linked on the environment. For many of us, respect for God’s creation also translates into a duty to protect and sustain his first creation, Earth, the planet,” Kerry said. “Confronting climate change is, in the long run, one of the greatest challenges that we face, and you can see this duty or responsibility laid out in Scriptures clearly, beginning in Genesis. And Muslim-majority countries are among the most vulnerable. Our response to this challenge ought to be rooted in a sense of stewardship of Earth, and for me and for many of us here today, that responsibility comes from God.”
I’m not exactly sure what the reasoning or thinking is behind Kerry’s comments.
Hell. Who am I kidding?
We all know there is no thinking going on in this White House.
