US Secretary of State John Kerry reaffirmed the efforts of India and the United States in cutting down the drastic effects of climate change. “Our governments have overcome decades of differences on a climate change policy,” said Kerry at the Indo-US plenary session in New Delhi.

Kerry added that he hoped to bring the Paris Agreement into force soon.

Kerry is leading the American delegation to Tuesday’s seventh meeting of the US-India strategic dialogue, which seeks to improve security and economic development ties between the nations. He held talks with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, who was also present at the plenary session. He thanked Swaraj for India’s collaboration in talks on climate change.

On the civil nuclear deal, Kerry said he hoped the cooperation takes shape in the form of new reactors ‘that will deliver power to new households.’

Swaraj said there was ample scope to do more in the field of counter-terrorism between the two countries.

The US-India Strategic and Commercial Dialogue is the signature mechanism for advancing shared priorities of generating sustainable economic growth, creating jobs, improving the business and investment climate, enhancing livelihoods and sustaining the rules-based global order between both the nations.

      The Stupidest idea afloat is Climate Change. It defies Common Sense. I have been watching it all through my life and find it unbelievable, there is no tangible evidence to corroborate it, it is a child of whammy, full of trash Scientists who have carried along with them the World Politicians with crafty, inventive arguments. This combine is slamming this worthless, hypothetical false idea about Climate over the potions for their own nefarious reasons. They have brought about much upheaval and unsettling to the detriment of peoples. They have caused cessation of mining , of many Industries and consequent employment. This notion has made big dents in economies of the world especially the developed and semi-developed nations. Let us resist these climate-change scientists and their follower politicians. Put these misleading scientists out of work and politicians out of job. Do not vote for politicians who preach climate-change and trouble hapless people. Let us have our Industries thrive again every where and people have livelihood again. . The evil genius at play must be done away with. Let Nature and God Who created it have their way and it will be all Okay.
