LIMA, Peru – One day after Republican House leaders signaled their intention to block President Obama’s recent $3 billion pledge to the Green Climate Fund, Secretary of State John Kerry arrived at the UN climate summit here to laud the fund for reaching its preliminary goal while blasting skeptics in Congress for imperiling the planet with their denial of science.

I understand we now have enough pledges from the international community to meet and exceed the initial Climate Green Fund target of $10 billion,” Kerry said during a packed afternoon press conference with former Vice President Al Gore sitting in the front row.
