Calling global climate change a “life-threatening issue,” Secretary of State nominee John Kerry said Thursday that the United States must play a key role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming.

Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat, said at his confirmation hearing that the U.S. should pursue policies to boost clean energy and energy efficiency. In his state and others, such as California, “the fastest growing sector of our economy is clean energy,” Kerry said. “It’s a job creator.” …

Kerry told fellow senators he would be a “passionate advocate” on the issue if confirmed as secretary of state, “not based on ideology but based on facts, based on science. And I hope to sit with all of you and convince you that this $6 trillion (energy) market is worth millions of American jobs and leadership, and we better go after it.”
