Kerry: climate change is a common problem for the world's leading countries
The world's leading countries have a shared responsibility for tackling climate change, US President's Special Envoy for Climate John Kerry told Le Monde.
He noted that the United States, China, Russia, Japan and other countries should increase their commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
According to Kerry, global warming has become a challenge for the whole world. He stressed that this problem must be solved by all together, “since the result will not be a gain for any particular state, but the settlement of the global climate crisis.”
Earlier, the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia, Roman Vilfand, advised the residents of Russia to get used to abnormal weather events, since climate change reduces the frequency of periods of “normal” weather.
Also, scientists predicted for the countries of the Northern Hemisphere, climatic changes of a catastrophic nature, since the summer will last for six months.
