Baltimore Speaker Series: John Kerry

Wikimedia Commons

Former Secretary of State John Kerry, a key negotiator of the Paris Climate Accord from which President Trump pulled the U.S., is clearly frustrated that greenhouse gas emissions are still rising around the globe. Kerry is putting forth his own environmental initiative, to highlight science and refute those who deny climate change. Also, ahead of Kerry’s visit to Baltimore, we also ask about the Saudi oilfield strike, relations with Iran, the implications of the Israeli elections, and whether the Democratic presidential field is too crowded.
