Kerry on climate: ‘We have to work with China’ and other top polluters to avoid disaster

Former Secretary of State John Kerry, now working as the Biden administration’s special envoy on climate, joins Yahoo News Senior Climate Editor Ben Adler for a candid one-on-one discussion about climate change. Kerry tells Yahoo News that the United States is committed to working with the nations we may have political differences with — including China and Russia — to meet climate goals and avoid catastrophic consequences. “Our president has tried very hard to separate climate from the other issues,” says Kerry, adding, “We can’t get bogged down by that because this is a universally felt, existential challenge to the planet.”
