Talk about a warped sense of priorities.
Secretary of State John Kerry is wrapping up a five-day trip through Asia and the Pacific by focusing on climate change.
On Saturday, Kerry met with leaders in Burma. He then joined Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel for meetings in Australia on Monday.
Today, he flew to the Solomon Islands to meet government leaders and attend wreath laying ceremonies at the Guadalcanal American Memorial, and would fly on to Hawaii from there. […]
When Kerry met with Solomon Islands Prime Minister Gordon Lilo, the focus was on the environment.
“But more importantly, we have $25 million in Asia Pacific climate change adaptation. We have another $25 million in mitigation programs. I know it’s of great concern to you. And in addition to that, we have huge historical ties that we respect enormously,” Kerry continued.
