John Kerry–Climate Envoy Ideologue


Green New Deal: Climate change is just another name for social justice, which is just another name for wealth redistribution and totalitarianism

Re-Posted from the Canada Free Press By Jack Dini —— Bio and ArchivesDecember 10, 2020

n a major speech in Jakarta in February 2014, John Kerry claimed that “climate change can now be considered another weapon of mass destruction, perhaps the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.”  1

Kerry recently commented on Covid-19: “It’s a tragically teachable moment. I don’t say this in a partisan way. But the parallels between COVID-19 and climate change are screaming at us, both positive and negative. You could just as easily replace the words climate change with COVID-19; it is truly the tale of two pandemics deferred, denied, and distorted, one with catastrophic consequences, the other with even greater risk if we don’t reverse course. The long-term parallels between this pandemic and tomorrow’s gathering storm of climate crisis are more clear. If the economic devastation of the coronavirus pandemic is costly today, the cost of climate inaction will match—if not exceed—our current expenditures, which is why the next administration must act with urgency on day one.” 2

Now he will be in in a position to work the issues of ‘climate pandemic’ and ‘mass destruction.’

Kerry, a former secretary of state, senator and Democratic presidential nominee, will lead the country’s reentry into global climate politics in a new role that will elevate climate change as a priority of President-elect Joe Biden.  3

Kerry ‘will fight climate change full-time as Special Presidential Envoy for Climate,’ according to a statement by Biden’s transition team. “America will soon have a government that treats the climate crisis as the urgent national security threat it is,” Kerry tweeted after the announcement.

Kerry, a long time Biden ally who turns 77 next month, said that he intends to use his new post to tackle the world’s most pressing environmental problem.
“The work we began with the Paris Agreement is far from done,” he said. “I’m returning to government to get America back on track to address the biggest challenge of this generation and those that will follow. The climate crisis demands nothing less than all hands on deck.”

Yet, Kerry has admitted at the 2015 Paris climate conference that US emissions cuts would not change the climate, but he hailed the agreement as one of his proudest moments.  “The fact is that even if every single American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees—if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic gas emissions—guess what? That still wouldn’t be enough too offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world. If all the industrialized nations went down to zero emissions—remember what I just said—all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions, it wouldn’t be enough—not when more than 65 percent of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world.”  4

Just recently in addressing the G20, President Trump stated that the Paris agreement ‘was not designed to save the environment. It was designed to kill the America economy.’ It looks like Kerry agrees with Trump’s assessment of the effect of the Paris agreement on climate. Given Kerry’s anti-American history, President Trump’s entire assessment of the Paris climate agreement is likely correct. 5

Some other Kerry history:

  • Kerry, along with Barbara Boxer, pushed for climate change legislation in the Senate. This bill, the proposed Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act (S.1733), designed to severely restrict greenhouse gas emissions, would have placed an enormous burden on American families—higher gasoline prices, higher heating costs, higher energy taxes, and higher unemployment. 6 The Kerry-Boxer Bill didn’t pass, But that hasn’t slowed Kerry’s crusade against global warming.
  • Kerry said that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State. 7
  • In a keynote address to the Global Table Food and Agriculture Conference, Kerry made veiled swipes at the Australian government’s lack of climate and energy policy. “We just can’t sit on our asses and leave the political process to neanderthals who don’t believe in the future.” 8
  • He raved in a Washington Post op-ed about the following:
    • CO2 made Boko Haram kidnap hundreds of innocent girls
    • CO2 is causing Norfolk Naval station to sink
    • Debating CO2 will kill US soldiers 9

Kerry recently said,  “America will soon have a government that treats the climate crisis as the urgent national security threat it is. I’m proud to partner with the President-elect, our allies, and the young leaders of the climate movement to take on this crisis as the President’s Climate Envoy.” 10

And what are the views of the young leaders? Green New Deal proponent Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted recently that the true motivation behind the Green New Deal is to overhaul the ‘entire economy.’ “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing? Because we really think of it as how do you change the entire economy thing,” he said. 11

Green New Deal: Climate change is just another name for social justice, which is just another name for wealth redistribution and totalitarianism

The Green New Deal is recognition from the most devoted environmentalists that climate change is just another name for social justice, which is just another name for wealth redistribution and totalitarianism—a dictatorship. 12

Exit polling from the 2020 election shows that the climate issue was simply not a voter priority anywhere. The high mark for climate seems to have been Colorado where 9% of voters said climate was their priority. But in states such as Florida, Texas, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and even Biden’s Delaware, a mere 3% of voters said climate was their priority.  13

Clearly, this is a message Kerry will ignore.
