Special Envoy for Climate Change
London, United Kingdom
October 22, 2013
Thanks so much. I’m very glad to be here at this distinguished venue. I appreciate the invitation.
Today, I want to talk about the promise and challenge of developing an ambitious, durable, new international climate agreement.
We are, of course, well past the time of doubting that our climate is changing, that it is changing rapidly, and that the pace of change is accelerating. We can see that climate impacts are already large, are very likely to increase significantly, and have the potential to be fundamentally disruptive to our world and the world of our children and grandchildren.
