SOUNDBITE (English) John Kerry, US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate"Climate change, as we just heard from Jens Stoltenberg, is a security issue, and the fact is it's among the most complex security issues we've ever faced. What we do or don't do in the coming months and years will make all the difference. But for millions of people, Wolfgang, you know, they don't have to look into a distant future to see the impacts of climate change now, they just have to look out the window. This week in the state of Texas, we've seen unprecedented extreme cold related to climate because the polar vortex penetrates further south because of the weakening of the jet stream related to warming."++WHITE FLASH++2. SOUNDBITE (English) John Kerry, US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate++SHOT CHANGES FROM SOURCE++"Three years ago, scientists warned that if we want to prevent the worst consequences of the climate crisis, we have to limit the planet's warming to one point five degrees Celsius. That's the magic number by consensus among most scientists. The same group of scientists told us that we had, three years ago, about 12 years. So now, three years later, three years wasted, sadly, largely because of our president and the United States, around 2030 is the date in which we have to get the world now on the right path in order to cap the warming at that level of 1.5. So we are absolutely clearly without question now inside the decisive decade."STORYLINE:US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry warned world leaders that the world is now in "the decisive decade" to limit the effects of climate change, and must "raise ambitions" to meet the challenge.Kerry spoke remotely at the Munich Security Conference on Friday, framing climate change as a global security threat."When tensions are already high somewhere and resources are increasingly scarce, the embers of conflict just burn brighter," he said.Kerry said the last several years had been "wasted" because of Trump-era climate policy, and reaffirmed the Biden administration's commitment to reversing course.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
