WASHINGTON — Secretary of State John Kerry says elected officials who ban the words “climate change” are unwilling to face the facts, a not-so-subtle dig at Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s administration.
Kerry, a longtime climate champion, said the officials are ignoring scientific facts. He spoke on Thursday, days after reports of the ban, but did not refer to Scott specifically.
Kerry told The Atlantic Council, a Washington-based think tank, that debating whether we can say climate change is wasting time that would be better spent solving the problem.
