“Biden’s climate response leadership had Greta Thunberg tweeting.

President-elect Joe Biden said Monday that former Secretary of State John Kerry would serve as his Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, an announcement that provoked a range of responses from climate campaigners—many who broadly saw the pick as encouraging and others who warned the politically moderate statesman is a troubling choice to address the planetary emergency facing humanity.

The post, which will not require Senate confirmation, is within the National Security Council and is being referred to as “climate czar.”

“This marks the first time that the NSC will include an official dedicated to climate change, reflecting the president-elect’s commitment to addressing climate change as an urgent national security issue,” the transition team said in statement.

The statement pointed to Kerry’s background as “a key architect of the Paris Climate Accord,” from which President Donald Trump withdrew and Biden has pledged to rejoin.
