MotherJones: Sec of State Kerry would be a 'climate hawk'



<Kerry is among the most fierce advocates for climate action in the Senate. Here he is in a floor speech from August talking about why climate change is "as significant a level of importance" as Syria and Iran:

"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."

1. Yep....

With the XL pipeline falling within the purview of the State Department, one has to wonder just how sincere is republican support for his
appointment. Meanwhile Susan Rice has investments in the fossil fuel industry, including that damned tar sands industry.

3. I never trusted the GOPs dog and pony show re Rice. It was way over the top, and

seemed more a ploy to goad Obama into naming her.

5. You may be

absolutely correct. I think they honestly believed "the Black man" wouldn't be able to resist the dare. Fools, racist fools.

However...

6. Well, he'd be the most pro-environment, pro-science nominee for Sec of State.

That's already ON the record.

4. Yeah, my objections to Kerry have never been based on the idea that he'd be bad

at the job, because I think he'd be fantastic.

My only regret is losing him in the Senate.
