On Wednesday President Barack Obama Delivers Remarks On The Paris Agreement . here his full text
Ten months ago, in Paris, I said before the world that we needed a strong global agreement to reduce carbon pollution and to set the world on a low-carbon course.  The result was the Paris Agreement.  Last month, the United States and China -- the world’s two largest economies and largest emitters -- formally joined that agreement together.  And today, the world has officially crossed the threshold for the Paris Agreement to take effect. 
 
Today, the world meets the moment.  And if we follow through on the commitments that this agreement embodies, history may well judge it as a turning point for our planet.

US Secretary of State John Kerry Deliver his Dynamic speech On Bangladesh- US relation at Edward M. Kennedy center at Dhaka During his visit in Bangladesh.  He mentioned that climate change as an important issues for future Bangladesh. Here his full speech on climate change

`Now, we know that we are living in a very different and a very complicated time. The areas of the world most vulnerable to climate change are heavily populated, low-lying coastal regions that are also subject to devastating storms such as cyclones and hurricanes. This places Bangladesh near the very top of the countries at risk, with an estimated 15 million people who could be displaced by 2050. And that is why the United States, President Obama, myself, others are working so hard with local partners in order to try to create climate resiliency, to support renewable energy projects, build emergency centers, help with many millions of Bangladeshis who are economically dependent on coastal resources.

Hillary Clinton raced into a sharpening phase of her campaign last night by appealing to anxious Americans in hardscrabble coal towns and Texas borderlands, in the first address by a female major-party nominee for president in U.S. history.

Clinton challenged rival Donald Trump on his honesty, temperament and empathy in the pointed speech to an unbridled audience that waved American flags and chanted "Hillary, Hillary, Hillary." She also described a nation in pain, with too much poverty and unemployment, while promising to fight for disaffected workers, maligned immigrants and underpaid women.

Singh (Ret.) of India warns that unless measures are taken to address the threat of climate change, it could destabilize the South Asian region.
