Speaking in Jakarta, Indonesia, Kerry called climate change "the greatest challenge of our generation" and compared the urgency of the problem to that of combating terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.

Gingrich thought Kerry's remarks were a "terrifying prospect for American policy:"

Gingrich's wife apparently caught his error and he apologized for using the spelling of former Sen. Bob Kerrey's (D-NE) last name.

Gingrich and then-Sen. Kerry debated climate change back in 2007. Unlike some conservatives, Gingrich accepted scientists' consensus that human activity is contributing to global warming, but argued that government regulation is not an effective way to combat the problem.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
