Monday at the opening of COP21 conference in France, President Barack Obama declared addressing climate change would be a statement of a “rejection” of terrorism.
Obama said, “Fellow leaders We have come to Paris to show our resolve. We offer our condolences to the people of France for the barbaric attacks on this beautiful city. We stand united in solidarity, not only to deliver justice to the terrorist network responsible for those attacks but to protect our people and uphold the enduring values that keep us strong and keep us free. We salute the people of Pairs for insisting this crucial conference go on, an act of defiance that proves nothing will deter us from building the future we want for our children. What greater rejection of those who would tear down our world than marshaling our best efforts to save it.”
