“The bottom line is that our planet is warming,” Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement on Sunday — the same day he braved the cold and and the snow to watch the New England Patriots play football in his home state of Massachusetts. Sunday’s snowstorm in Foxborough was the strongest early-November snowstorm in over a century. Groundskeepers had to clear the field before the Patriots could play.
“The bottom line is that our planet is warming due to human actions, the damage is already visible, and the challenge requires ambitious, decisive and immediate action,” Kerry said in a statement released earlier on Sunday. He was reacting to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s latest climate assessment.
Those who disagree with his position on climate change are “stuck in a debate over ideology and politics,” Kerry said, adding that “[t]hose who choose to ignore or dispute the science so clearly laid out in this report do so at great risk for all of us and for our kids and grandkids.”
