On January 20, 2021, John F. Kerry was sworn in as the U.S. special presidential envoy for climate and the first-ever principal to sit on the National Security Council entirely dedicated to climate change. President Biden announced that John Kerry would have a seat at every table around the world as he combats the climate crisis to meet the existential threat that we face. In recent years, Mr. Kerry was the first visiting distinguished statesman at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, having served as the 68th U.S. secretary of state for four years. As America’s top diplomat, he guided the department’s strategy on nuclear nonproliferation, combating radical extremism and the threat of climate change. His tenure was marked by the successful negotiation of the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement.
