“But if we do nothing, and it turns out that the critics and the naysayers and the members of the flat earth society – if it turns out that they’re wrong, then we are risking nothing less than the future of the entire planet,” he said.
Delivering the commencement speech at his Chestnut Hill, Mass. alma mater – he graduated from Boston College Law School in 1976 – Kerry characterized climate change as “a test we have to meet.”
