LONDON – U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry said countries should respond to the war in Ukraine by accelerating the shift to green energy and moving to “deweaponise” energy.

“The lesson is that we have to move faster to deweaponise energy anywhere in the world. It’s not the first time it’s been used as a weapon,” he told delegates at a climate event hosted by the City of London.
