 U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Indonesia on Sunday and called climate change the world's "most fearsome" destructive weapon. Indonesia happens to be the world's largest exporter of coal for power plants. Thick grey smog shrouded China and beyond when John Kerry visited the Chinese capital Beijing, the level reached "hazardous" on air quality indexes. The weather in Eastern US has changed so much that the area is almost dangerous to live in. We remember that severe storms have hit the region for two consecutive years that left thousands of households without power for weeks. Installation of generators afterward could not prevent this year's polar vortex from breaking water pipes. There are plenty of problems in climate change. China and the United States are the world's two largest emitters of greenhouse gases which are blamed for global warming, accounting for some 40 percent of total planetary emissions. The primary solution must be energy policy. Stop incentivizing the use of coal and oil! Invest in renewable energy technologies! This should be done in the level of government and international financial institutions.
