Jakarta (AFP) - US Secretary of State John Kerry Sunday issued a clarion call for nations to do to more to combat climate change, calling it "the world's largest weapon of mass destruction".

In a keynote speech, one of a series planned in different countries throughout the year, Kerry sought to make both a moral and economic argument for greater urgency in cutting greenhouse gases.

He warned that low-lying Asian nations and their rich ecosystems were particularly at peril from rising sea levels.

Talking to a crowd of Indonesian agriculture, energy and marine students, he said the country and Southeast Asia were "on the frontlines of climate change".

"It's not an exaggeration to say to you that the entire way of life that you live and love is at risk," Kerry said at a US-run cultural centre in Jakarta, in a speech also fed live to hubs on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra....

Kerry is such a dull tool. Probably thinks Gore is a scientist.

If he weren't such a moron he would know that they grow rice in water which releases methane. Growing rice on dry land does not.

Kerry IS the bleak future.

I love how the economic terrorists are now sticking to the term “climate change” like crazy glue on skin. Oh no no no, no global warming not with all the snow and freezing temps, now it’s “climate change”. Reminds me when economic terrorist Al Gore showed the photos of the mountain in Italy with snow and then without snow blaming it on global warming until someone pointed out the photos of the mountain were taken in winter then in summer. S now it is “climate change” as in the the changing seasons. So now their rational is simply when the seasons change the public must pay.

Hey Hanoi Boy. You took over the Secretary of State job for another incompetent idiot. You are NOT A SCIENTIST. Give the global warming political agenda a rest and do the job you’re supposed to be doing. Maybe we won’t lose four more Americans under you reign as Idiot of State.

“Combatting climate change” - just how do you do that?

Raise taxes to confiscatory levels, implement and enforce regulations that make the conversion of “fossil fuel” into wealth creation and distribution too expensive to use, go for cockamamie schemes bordering on the development of “perpetual motion” as the “solutions” of choice, and stifle all dialogue because the discussion is finished and “climate change” is settled science.

I would say the program is well on its way.

Jean-Francois Kerre` is entirely correct about one thing, though. The call to arms on climate change DOES assure a bleak future.

Zero-sum games are so frustrating.

Never has the phrase

‘WHEN PEOPLE THINK YOU MAY BE STUPID, DON’T OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND REMOVE ALL DOUBT’

been so appropriate.

It is definitely one thing to sit in your back yard and babble on, but once you go to the front porch all the neighbors can hear what a loon you are.

I just wish this whole administration and hand puppets would just go away...

Give me a NEWHART MOMENT here -

Please Lord, allow me to wake up and find it was all a dream.

Which of the broken never come true models is he using this week?? These people make and sell more models than Matel toys does and there is always a new model just around the corner.

I know how to stop glo bull warming. Simply stop all money that is going to all of this bogus research. The self supporting fairytale weather fantasy will go away and we can get on with our lives.

So he is off there telling them exactly how to fleece the American taxpayers out of more of our money, to combat some imaginary crap that he probably knows less about than providing security to embassies in Arab Spring countries.

It is amazing how far the US has fallen. We used to be a beacon for liberty, truth and prosperity. Now we are but whores for tyranny, lies and depravity.

"It's not an exaggeration to say to you that the entire way of life that you live and love is at risk,"

Thanks to Obama and Democrat policies, we are well aware of this
