It is an honor to be here this morning.  Today, the United States and Kenya join hands to reaffirm our joint commitment to the fight against climate change.  Today, we take action that will help us avert a worldwide climate catastrophe.  Today, we launch a joint three-year project to help Kenya achieve its goal of low-carbon, sustainable economic growth and development. 

In his 1963 address to the United Nations, U.S. President John F. Kennedy said:  “Never before has man had such capacity to control his own environment.”  That capacity, of course, can cut both ways.  What we do can alter the environment for good… or for ill.  And our actions will reverberate across time, having a profound impact on the state of the world in ten, twenty, and even one hundred years.
