  • Moderate Dems silent as Biden skirts Senate confirmation for John Kerry's replacement

    Moderate Senate Democrats were silent this week when Fox News Digital asked for a comment on President Biden's decision to appoint climate czar John Kerry's replacement without Senate confirmation. **SNIP** While Kerry will step down as special presidential envoy for climate (SPEC), Biden will not nominate a direct replacement, and Kerry's staff will report to another State Department official while Podesta coordinates policy with the SPEC office from the White House. The arrangement allows Podesta to sidestep a congressionally mandated Senate confirmation since the SPEC role will technically be left vacant. "Upon Secretary Kerry’s departure, the existing SPEC state team...

    White House adviser John Podesta will replace John Kerry as the nation’s lead climate diplomat, the White House announced on Wednesday. “We need to keep meeting the gravity of this moment, and there is no one better than John Podesta to make sure we do,” White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients, in a written statement shared with reporters. Podesta will remain at the White House and will get the title of senior advisor to the president for international climate policy. In that role, he will lead the Biden administration’s international climate policy agenda and will coordinate with other officials...

    Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry gave a speech at the World Economic Forum calling for "an end to farming. Once we can inform people that agriculture contributes about 33% of all the CO2 emissions of the world we may be able to get the widespread support we need to eliminate this major source of climate change. In our modern world very few people buy their food from farmers. Most of them get their food from supermarkets. I, myself, get most of my food from restaurants and official banquets like the one we're all having here today. So, farming...

    He seems to think that food comes from grocery stores. This takes a special kind of 'stupid.' Does Joe Biden's climate czar, John Kerry, ever listen to himself? He made this dunderheaded speech at the World Economic Forum, unwittingly contradicting himself as he sought applause from the elites. Climate con man extraordinaire, John Kerry: The farming industry must be destroyed in order to achieve Net Zero. "Agriculture contributes about 33% of all the emissions of the world. And we can't get to Net Zero—we don't get this job done—unless agriculture is front and centre as part of the solution." "You...

    U.S. climate envoy John Kerry confirmed Wednesday he is departing his position to work on President Biden’s reelection campaign, emphasizing the stakes for climate policy in the election. Kerry, speaking with BloombergTV at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, said the stakes for the 2024 election are “as high as they can get,” despite skepticism about Biden among younger, climate-focused voters, who polling shows are increasingly leery of the president’s age and his policies on the Israel-Hamas war.

    Historian and author Douglas Brinkley said Monday on MSNBC’s “Chris Jansing Reports” that former President Donald Trump “has been dabbling in Adolf Hitler his whole life.” Saturday, at a rally, Trump said, “They’re poisoning the blood of our country. That is what they’ve done. They’ve poisoned mental institutions and prisons all over the world. Not just in South America or three or four countries, but they’re coming into our country from Africa and Asia, and they’re pouring into our country.”

    WSJ ^ | 13 January 2024 | Annie Linskey & Andrew Restuccia
    John Kerry is stepping down as the president’s special envoy for climate this spring, according to two people familiar with the decision. The change comes weeks after Kerry, 80, played a key role during a climate conference in Dubai helping to forge a compromise among nearly 200 countries aimed at reducing fossil fuels. The White House didn’t immediately comment on Kerry’s decision. Kerry, whose departure will come as President Biden is intensifying his re-election campaign, is one of the few top officials to depart an administration that has had historically low turnover. Kerry has held the post for three years...

    'To date, you have failed to respond to any of our requests...' Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry, whose net worth reportedly stands at $250 million, wasted approximately $4.3 million in taxpayer funds to pay his climate office within the Biden administration, according to newly revealed documents. The multi-million-dollar bill surfaced through documents released on Monday via a Freedom of Information Act request made by the Boston Herald. Strikingly, the office declined to disclose the identities of Kerry’s top officials despite handling U.S. policy abroad.

    John Kerry’s call to end all coal-powered electricity generation is “silly” and “self-destructive,” writes former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, and “makes the United States look delusional.” In his punchy essay, Gingrich insists that it is “not hyperbole or exaggeration” to call John Kerry “crazy,” since the word crazy means “marked by thought or action that lacks reason.” Mr. Kerry’s failing mental state was on full display during his recent “emotional speech” to the United Nations Climate Change Conference, where he made a plea to “end all coal burning power plant construction in the entire world.”

    Loud fart sound erupts during John Kerry’s speech at climate panel John Kerry might need to cut back on his own emissions. The Biden Administration’s climate envoy was discussing US policy on coal power plants at the Climate Change Conference in Dubai on Sunday when Kerry may have unleashed a burst of wind energy. The former secretary of state was speaking next to Becky Anderson, Managing Editor of CNN Abu Dhabi, and Fatih Birol, Executive director of the International Energy Agency, when a Bronx cheer suddenly erupted midsentence. “There shouldn’t be any more coal-fired power plants permitted anywhere in the...

    Former President Donald Trump blasted U.S. Special Envoy for Climate John Kerry in a Fox News town hall event for his climate activism and told the audience that the former Democratic presidential candidate “has to be stopped.” “I see John Kerry all over the place talking about [how] we have to get rid of our coal plants,” Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity. “And yet China is building one coal plant a week, massive coal plants, and they’re doing it just automatically. And John Kerry wants us to stop doing anything we can. We have a country; we have...

    John Kerry is confident the U.S. can be trusted to act on “climate change” no matter who gains the White House at next year’s election because the democratic process “is like sex.” The U.S.’s word “is 100 percent percent good,” said Kerry, the U.S. special presidential envoy for climate change, as he assured attendees at the COP28 climate meeting in Dubai any Trump presidency “won’t stop global green transition.” He made the obtuse correlation between “democracy” and “sex” while speaking at the Bloomberg Green summit, as the outlet reports.

    U.S. climate envoy John Kerry said he thinks coal plants should not be “permitted anywhere in the world.” During a speech at the 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference, Kerry said he is becoming “more and more” militant about climate policy because people are avoiding responsibility. “We don’t need that necessarily to tell us we ought to be transitioning out of coal,” Kerry said about the pollution from coal plants. “There shouldn’t be any more coal power plants permitted anywhere in the world.” “That’s how you can do something for health,” he added. “And the reality is that we’re not...

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The United States committed to the idea of phasing out coal power plants, joining 56 other nations in kicking the coal habit that’s a huge factor in global warming. U.S. Special Envoy John Kerry announced over the weekend that America was joining the Powering Past Coal Alliance, which means the Biden Administration commits to building no new coal plants and phasing out existing plants. No date was given for when the existing plants would have to go, but other Biden regulatory actions and international commitments already in the works had meant no coal by 2035.

    It came after the Munich freezeout where the private jets of global elites were snowed-in. But apparently most made it to Dubai for COP28. Or more apt, the Cop-out meeting where the global elites meet eating caviar and guzzling champagne and telling us to die off, eat bugs and drive idiotic EVs that most Americans can’t afford. (A $100,000 Ford F-150 Lightning??) But at least we can hear England’s royalty, King Charles, bloviate about the weather. Along with American royalty, VP Kamala Harris and Climate Envoy John Kerry who committed the US to closing down out coal burning plants. It...

    Former Senator John Kerry, climate envoy for the Biden administration, scolded the world for not making enough sacrifices to fight climate change at the COP28 climate conference in Dubai on Wednesday. “There’s too much business as usual still. We have got to bring people to the table who are not yet there. And we will make progress in that,” Kerry said. “Not everybody is doing what they promised to do. And needless to say, that’s a problem and we need to have accountability at this COP, for that lack of follow-through by some,” he lectured.

    OPINION: One way to gauge the success of global warming activists is to count how many fossil-fuel-burning homes they collect. For some, the climate change industry has to be one of the most lucrative professions on Earth, which, by the way, is in danger of failing any year now unless we depopulate. Can you imagine the roundup? For others, it’s a way to take existing wealth and turn their dollars into political power. We’re in a hysteria lull right now between the tornado-summer heat-hurricane season and the winter rain and snow deluge, so let’s look at some of the biggies....
