Describing himself as "a child of the ocean," Secretary of State John Kerry warned that the "fragile ecosystem" is threatened by climate change. "We call this beautiful planet that we are privileged to inhabit for a short period of time -- we call it Earth, but it could well have been called Ocean because three-quarters of it is ocean," Kerry told a gathering at the National Geographic Society in Washington on Monday.

We call it earth because the part we are floating around on is earth. When it flips over, then we will be in the ocean. Doesn’t he know this?

´We Call It Earth, but It Could Well Have Been Called Ocean´

You know, that was fascinating to me when I first heard almost the same phrase when I was 6.

But then I realized that I dont live in the sea, and fish dont name stuff, so it is called Earth.

I remember the day well. Some of my buddies that worked in the OPF just couldn’t wait to share.

A wise man once said:
“Shut up Thurston!” “But Lovey, we musn’t let the low lifes dictate what we do. Now, where did I place my yacht?”

John Kerry should be honored for being the Rosa Parks of stupid.

When people demanded that he be smart, he stuck to his guns and stood tall for his right to be a moron.

Three quarters of the Earth’s SURFACE AREA is water. In terms of volume and mass, the amount of water is negligible.

I’ve read that if the earth were the size of an apple, our entire atmosphere would be about the same thickness as the skin. The oceans, while covering a large area are considerably thinner than the atmosphere.

Wot an idiot!

Maybe he should spend some time learning about science instead of nodding his head in agreement with al Gore as he blathers on about how it's “millions of degrees” beneath the surface of the Earth.
Really Al? Really Sr. Kerry? Hotter than the surface of the Sun you say. An SUV will heat up the Earth you say.

I wonder if Kerry has any actual photos of the man-bear-pig ?

Describing himself as "a child of the ocean,"

Mr. Swift Boat Captain is a child of the ocean.

He turned and ran from a gunboat fight so quickly that one of his passengers fell overboard and he had to return and pick him up.

Interesting you bring up Asimov. I am having trouble finding Kerry's phrase in use by Asimov, but it comes close.

“Any planet is 'Earth' to those that live on it.”

Asimov rejected God too.

“I am frequently asked if I have visited Israel, whereas yet, it is simply assumed that I have. Well, I don’t travel. I really don’t, and if I did, I probably wouldn’t visit Israel. I remember how it was in 1948 when Israel was being established and all my Jewish friends were ecstatic, I was not. I said: what are we doing? We are establishing ourselves in a ghetto, in a small corner of a vast Muslim sea. The Muslims will never forget nor forgive, and Israel, as long as it exists, will be embattled. I was laughed at, but I was right. I can’t help but feel that the Jews didn’t really have the right to appropriate a territory only because 2000 years ago, people they consider their ancestors, were living there. History moves on and you can’t really turn it back. (#92 ff.)”
