Secretary of State John Kerry told a climate change conference in Poland Monday that global warming is the biggest challenge to the world.

“Fulfilling our responsibility to the future inhabitants of our planet is an ambitious goal, yes, but there isn't a more important one out there right now,” he said in a video shown at the conference.

Kerry also urged immediate action by world leaders to curb emissions. Climate change, he said, “is happening now.”
