As secretary of state under President Obama, Kerry was instrumental in the 2016 signing of the international Paris climate agreement. Last year, the Trump administration announced its intent to withdraw from the agreement.
"It's ideological, and frankly, it's short-sighted and it's stupid and it's dangerous," Kerry said. "President Trump's decision to pull out of Paris will cost lives, lives of Americans. It will cost billions of dollars."
"There are countless economic analyses that show it is cheaper to make the investments and do the things we need to do now to prevent the damage than it is to wait for the damage," Kerry said. "Everything compels us to move in this direction except we have a president who doesn't read, doesn't understand the science and has ideologically decided to side with the deniers who literally don't know what they're talking about."
New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez introduced the Green New Deal in February as a road map to convert the entire U.S. economy to renewable energy in 12 years and eliminate the carbon footprint by 2030.
At a House Oversight Committee hearing on climate change and its impact on national security, Kerry said Ocasio-Cortez offered "more leadership in one day or in one week than President Trump has in his lifetime" on the topic of climate change.
"She's had the courage to stand up and put forward an aspiration and it's a generalized statement of an aspiration, not a specific piece of legislation," Kerry said. "But actually trying to achieve a completely carbon-free, alternative, renewable society by 2030 is not possible; we just can't do that yet."

These enviro-idiots go out of their way to see who can come up with the most idiotic and hair-brained thought yet...
Its a competition to see who can be the most stupid....
Even more are joining the contest!!!!!
Correct me if I am wrong, but didn’t Obama not even bother to try to get Senate ratification of this treaty? It was so freakin’ important, that even the Constitution couldn’t be bothered. Screw off Kerry...
Hey Ketchup Boy, how did your presidential campaign work out.
Isn’t Jf’nK the one that was damning SUVs etc as gas guzzling, global destroying behomeths etc and when questioned about his WIFE’s car - which happened to be a Fleet of SUVs Jf’nK basically what she did was her business, not his?
AND he wanted to be Pres?????
Why does Massachusetts hate the US so much, they continue sending us these unAmerican buttholes to represent us - the only thing I figure is they just don’t want the Kennedys, Kerrys, Romneys, Warrens, Franks etal living amongst them so they send them to Washington to be rid of them.
It’s “hare-brained”. I only mention this because it appears in a post with a man in a bunny suit.
When Kerry said “It’s ideological, and frankly, it’s short-sighted and it’s stupid and it’s dangerous,” I thought he was agreeing with Trump.
Someone please make it stop...
LOL...I stand corrected...
It wouldn't be a John Kerry article if he wasn't calling someone stupid. John still is the smartest guy in the room, according to him.
And let’s see ... we only have now 9 years and 7 days before the world ends . . . according to Occasional A-Hole Kotex?
Lurch contradicts himself. I never thought he was very bright. He did have a talent for marrying rich women.
Not FONDA KERRY
Who cares what this dick has to say go away already.
Name one life it cost an American, traitor.
Gee, is this the same John Kerry that served in Vietnam? Say your piece now, you SOB, because when people start examining your role in the coup you’ll have to go dark.
Strange Things Happening Every Day
To be honest, who gives a rat’s ass about John Kerry or anything he has to say about any subject?
He can safely be ignored. He had his chance, shot his wad and came up a loser.
This oaf is damned...he is a traitor , a criminal and a nitwit. What an obnoxious twit and loser.
