    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry visited the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to talk about climate change.

    Kerry spoke just after 10:30 a.m. on Monday on topics including "the global transition to a clean energy future."

    After the speech, Kerry was set to join MIT faculty and researchers for a round-table discussion on how advances in technology are shaping jobs and economies worldwide.

    Before becoming secretary of state in 2013, Kerry was a longtime U.S. senator from Massachusetts and was a prosecutor in the state. He returns to the Boston area after delivering Northeastern University's commencement address in May 2016.
