Clean Power John Kerry On The $6 Trillion Energy Market

John Kerry On The $6 Trillion Energy Market

Below is a video on John Kerry’s tremendous climate hawkiness (which he’s known for). As is often recommended, he focuses a lot of time emphasizing the economic and job benefits of clean energy and energy efficiency. He also emphasizes the fact that countries around the world are taking a quick lead on clean energy and other types of cleantech in order to lead the global economy in the coming century/centuries. We should be doing the same. “This $6 trillion market is worth millions of American jobs and leadership. And we better go after it,” John Kerry says. Anyway, watch the video (thanks to Peter Sinclair for sharing it, and thanks to Think Progress for uploading it):

This is part of an experimental “Sunday quickies” series in which we quickly cover stories we didn’t have time for during the previous week.

    Thanks for the post Zach. I really like John Kerrys’ position on the energy sector and climate change. I think he will be a fine Secretary of State and help rebuild the American Economy.

      Yeah, he’s so pragmatic and to the point. And great at crossing the lines needed to speak to the crowd rather than the choir. Curious what he would have done as president if elected.
