To be clear, the fact that John Kerry, a proven dim bulb, is allowed to address any group at all as the representative of the U.S. government (he’s the U.S. special presidential “envoy for climate”) also shows how irresponsible and incompetent the Biden administration is. Kerry, a college grad of even less distinction than Al Gore and with no science training, is as qualified to speak about the complex details of climate change as Greta Thunberg. Nonetheless, his fatuous presentation this week in Davos, Switzerland is revealing for anyone not blinded by climate change propaganda, talking points and doomsday scenarios.
Here are some of the fake Irish politician’s astute observations:
- “I’m convinced we will get to a low-carbon, no-carbon economy — we’re going to get there because we have to.
We can do it because we have to. Now there’s persuasive logic, at least to someone like Kerry. This would be talking down to an audience and patronizing them, if Kerry himself wasn’t likely to believe such rubbish. We’ll reduce the National Debt—because we have to! We’ll eliminate gun violence—because we have to! We’ll end war and racism—because we have to!
- “I am not convinced we’re going to get there in time to do what the scientists said, which is avoid the worst consequences of the crisis.”
According to the past predictions of those same scientists, we should have already seen coastal cities under water, snow a distant memory, and the polar bears keeping company with passenger pigeons….not that John Kerry being “convinced” of anything related to science should carry any weight whatsoever. He’s just mouthing what cherry-picked “experts” say in highly simplified, politically slanted summaries.
- “And those worst consequences are going to affect millions of people all around the world, [in] Africa and other places. Of the 20 most affected countries in the world from [the] climate crisis, 17 are in Africa.”
Ironically, it is exactly those same developing countries that most need to employ fossil fuels to advance economically—you know, like the United States did.
- “So, how do we get there? Well, the lesson I’ve learned in the last years and I learned it as secretary [of State] and I’ve learned it since, reinforced in spades, is: money, money, money, money, money, money, money.”
That’s the Democratic way, all right: throw money at any problem whether you know what you’re doing or not. And if there’s one thing the United States has, with its National Debt of 31 trillion dollars, it’s money. The federal government borrowed $4 billion a day in 2022.
- “Let’s face it, [a] whole bunch of companies in the world have chosen to say, ‘I’m going to be net zero by 2050’ And you and I, we know they don’t have a clue how they’re going to get there. And most of them are not on track to get there.”
We also all know, or should, that those pledges were just cynical and dishonest virtue-signaling, and that the companies have no intention of “getting there” because it takes “money, money, money.” But, to be fair, we know they will “get there” because they have to.
This is the level of deep thought the prestigious conference in Davos heard from the U.S. envoy. To be fair, Kerry’s blather is accurately representative of the thinking of the whole Biden team, but if this was the best he could do, they might as well have sent Kamala Harris.
