Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday called for action to combat climate change and spur the American economy by investing in clean energy technologies.

“We share nothing so completely as our planet,” Kerry said in his first major speech since becoming secretary of state at the University of Virginia. “If we waste this opportunity, it may be the only thing our generation – generations – are remembered for.”

“When we work with others to develop and deploy clean technologies,” Kerry said, “we know we are helping create new markets and opportunities for america’s second to none innovators and entrepreneurs so that we can succeed in the next great revolution in our marketplace.”
