John Kerry, President Biden's special climate envoy, is about to step down in the coming weeks. He will be replaced by climate policy veteran John Podesta, a person well acquainted with We Don't Have Time.
Mr Podesta was one of the keynote speakers at We Don’t Have Time’s US Launch in Washington, D.C in 2021.
”We need to transform the global economy on a size and scale that has never occured in human history. That’s an awesome challenge. So I think we should take heart from the fact that we can rise to that challenge, meet it, and transform the global economy in a way that is profound, historic and will produce equity and justice for people across the globe ”, he said during his keynote speech.
John Podesta was the Former White House Chief of Staff to President Clinton, Counselor to President Obama, and Founder of the Center for American Progress. He was brought back to the White House last year to put into place an ambitious U.S. climate program revived with the $375 billion approved in the 2022 climate law. He also led the administration's climate task force. We wish him all the best of luck on this new mission.

                      The appointment of a "true climate champion" to replace Kerry as the U.S. Special Envoy on Climate is an important step towards addressing climate change and promoting global collaboration on sustainable development.
