WWF Statement on Secretary Kerry's Remarks at COP22

by Cop22 Marrakech

Mariana Panuncio-Feldman, World Wildlife Fund’s senior director of international climate cooperation and head of WWF’s delegation at COP22, issued the following statement today about the release of the US’ mid-century plan and Secretary of State Kerry’s remarks:

“In a time of uncertainty, actionable plans to avoid runaway climate change matter more than ever – and that’s what we got today. With its midcentury plan, the US is putting substance behind the promises of the Paris Agreement, and this comes at a crucial juncture in the UN climate talks.

“Importantly, the plan outlines several ways for US carbon-cutting efforts to come within reach of the goals set by the Paris Agreement. This takes our long-term pledges and translates them into a roadmap for action. We will now need to chart the quickest possible path using the suite of options it provides - one that allows us to accelerate action over time with environmental integrity.”

“As Secretary Kerry reminded us today, science is telling us we are running out of time to address climate change. We need urgent and bold action to exponentially cut emissions and protect vulnerable communities to ensure the long-term prosperity and safety of all of the world’s citizens - including Americans.

“Secretary Kerry’s speech rightly reaffirmed that we are on the road to a clean energy economy – despite the uncertainties of a new U.S. administration. He injected some much-needed optimism into the talks, reminding us that the US is still in this fight because there is too much momentum from the marketplace and support from the American public to avoid the worst effects of climate change.
