US Climate Envoy: Work Even Harder With the EU to Tighten Up Paris

The European Union and the United States must work even more closely than before to stem climate change.


The Paris climate agreement was already a feat, but that too falls short, says American climate envoy John Kerry.

Kerry will be in Brussels on Tuesday “to resume discussions with our friends in Europe about our climate cooperation,” he said.

It was already “extraordinary” when they were working on the Paris climate agreement, Kerry recalls. According to new president Joe Biden’s special climate envoy, now, even more, is being asked.

European Commissioner Frans Timmermans, who takes care of climate matters in the European Commission, received Kerry in Brussels. The Dutch have confidence in it.

“Together, the EU and the US can move mountains,” said Timmermans.
