    U.S. climate envoy John Kerry conceded there was likely to be a “gap” between the commitments nations make at an international climate summit in Glasgow next month and the emissions cuts that are necessary to prevent catastrophic global warming during an interview with The Associated Press. Kerry said he was not seeking to downplay expectations for the event, and said the gap should be used to convince countries to go further. “We will hopefully be moving very close to that…though there will be a gap and…we’ve got to be honest about the gap, and we have to use the gap...

    A stunning admission from an administration insider that the President of The United States is clueless and out of touch on some of the most important strategic issues of the day was delivered to a French television audience by former Secretary of State and current presidential special envoy for climate John F. Kerry.p>Last month, France recalled its ambassador to the United States in reaction to the secret negotiation of military alliance called AUKUS (Australia, UK and US) that resulted in cancellation of a gigantic (estimates as high as $66 billion) contract for Australia to buy French diesel submarines (to be...

    Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry said on Monday that President Joe Biden “literally had not been aware of what had transpired” in upsetting France over last month’s nuclear-powered submarine deal the United States did with Australia. “President Biden asked me about it, and I told him, and expressed…,” said Kerry in an interview with French cable channel BFMTV. “You told Joe Biden that it was not the right…,” asked an interviewer. “He asked me. He said, ‘what’s the situation?’ and I explained exactly, uh… He was he had not been aware of that, he literally, literally had not...
  • US Climate Envoy Kerry Gets Cold Shoulder in China

    Analysts are portraying this week’s visit to China by U.S. presidential envoy John Kerry as a diplomatic embarrassment, with Chinese leaders giving no ground on Kerry’s appeal for cooperation on climate change and offering him only video meetings with senior officials. “The Taliban got a better reception” when a delegation from the Afghan insurgent group met with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Beijing on July 28, noted Anders Corr, a longtime China observer and publisher of the Journal of Political Risk. The chilly treatment of Kerry reflects how much an increasingly assertive China’s approach to Washington has changed in...

    China and the US have failed to reach a climate agreement after Biden's climate envoy John Kerry pushed Beijing to make more public pledges before a UN climate summit in November. "China already has its own plans and road map for achieving its climate goals," an official on the Chinese side was cited in South China Morning Post as saying. The source said further that Beijing wouldn't tolerate Washington telling it what it should do or not do. SCMP summarized of Kerry's proposals: During talks with Chinese leaders in Tianjin, US climate envoy John Kerry presented a list of proposals...

    The Chinese Communists don’t like having their oppressive regime called out for human rights abuses and they let U.S. climate envoy John Kerry know that in no uncertain terms. ... The reason their solar panels are being sanctioned is that the Communists are engaging in unfair trading practices by deliberately selling the products at a loss to undercut the viability of the U.S. solar panel industry. The Chinese were also using slave labor to produce the panels. It’s harder to sell those solar panels because the Chinese are cheating and got caught. Should we lift the restrictions because of human...

    There is little doubt that China was already giddy that they get to deal with U.S. “climate envoy” John Kerry, but having watched Biden’s weakness in Afghanistan, they aren’t even being coy about it any more. They are openly telling Kerry that the U.S. won’t get any Chinese cooperation on climate change unless the U.S. backs off pressuring China on other issues, such as trade, human rights, etc. The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday: China Warns Kerry Climate Cooperation Depends on Overall Ties HONG KONG—Senior Chinese officials told U.S. climate envoy John Kerry that continued U.S. hostility on a range...

    BEIJING — U.S. climate envoy John Kerry came to China this week seeking to press the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases to do more in the global effort to hold down the rise in temperature. What he got was renewed demands for Washington to change its stance toward China on a host of other issues from human rights to Taiwan, the self-governing island that China claims. Both sides agree that climate is an area of joint interest, but while the U.S. says they should cooperate despite their differences, China says the U.S. cannot expect cooperation while also attacking it...

    John Kerry, the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, on Tuesday, discussed the importance of U.S.-Chinese cooperation to address the global environment, contending that the current climate situation cannot be solved without “full engagement and commitment” from China. Kerry met virtually from Tianjin, China, with Han Zheng, China’s vice premier, to “discuss the importance of U.S.-China cooperation in the global effort to reduce emissions and tackle the climate crisis,” according to a statement from a State Department official. Kerry reportedly emphasized that the world can not “solve the climate crisis” without the engagement of China, noting that the world's second-largest economy...

    John Kerry, President Biden’s special envoy for climate, is reportedly looking to push China to issue a moratorium on financing coal projects during a trip to the country next week. The Wall Street Journal reported the plans, citing people familiar with the matter, one of whom said that U.S. officials are looking for China to declare a formal pause as Beijing has yet to fund any new foreign coal plants or investments this year. 2021 is the first year Beijing has not launched new funding for foreign coal projects since 2013, when it launched its Belt and Road Initiative focused...

    Former Secretary of State, U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that the Senate needs to work faster in the confirmation process to combat the “brain drain” brought on by former President Donald Trump. Mitchell asked, “I want to also ask you about undoing some of the Trump changes, I don’t mean the Paris Climate Accord, but there has been such a brain drain from the scientists who have quit or been fired all through the federal government, not just the EPA and other related agencies. How do you undo that? Doesn’t...

    A private jet owned by climate czar John Kerry's family has flown 16 times this year, according to FlightAware records. Kerry is President Joe Biden's adviser for lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Private jets have been estimated to emit upward of 40 times as much carbon per passenger as commercial flights ... Many of the flights occurred within Massachusetts, including Martha's Vineyard and Boston ... Kerry defended flying via private jet to receive an environmental award in Iceland in 2019 in footage that surfaced earlier this year. He called flying private "the only choice for somebody like me .... Kerry and...

    When the European Union laid out the details of a measure to tax carbon at its borders earlier this month, all eyes turned across the Atlantic to see how the U.S. would respond. Would the Biden Administration, as it forges ahead with its own ambitious plans to reduce emissions in the U.S., take action to make sure foreign imports face the same climate costs as products made domestically? American officials, so far, have sought to thread a needle on the sticky question, suggesting a carbon tax on imports to the U.S. as a distant possibility without seeming too enthusiastic about...

    Climate czar John Kerry was yet again spotted at the airport without his mask, despite federal law requiring passengers to wear them. As Beth reported in March, Kerry also appeared maskless on a flight, though he responded it was "malarkey" and claimed if he wasn't wearing his mask "it was momentary." The photographs of this recent incident were obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, and show the former Secretary of State without his mask while going through security at the Boston Logan International Airport on Monday morning. As Alana Goodman with the Washington Free Beacon reported: A spokeswoman for Logan...

In photos, Kerry can be seen walking through an airport body scanner without wearing a mask. The source who provided the photos said they were taken at 11:41 a.m. on Monday at Logan Airport. Kerry previously denied that he went maskless on an American Airlines flight after a picture emerged in March, calling the...

    Nowhere is the blurring of distinctions between industries more apparent than in the guest list of an exclusive, invitation-only summer retreat for corporate titans in Sun Valley, Idaho. Conceived in the early 1980s by banker Herbert Allen as a week-long mingling of Hollywood's elite, the 24th annual gathering kicks off this week with a group of executives unlikely to rub shoulders at other conferences.The informal event, which begins with presentations on Wednesday on topics ranging from healthcare to dependence on oil, was once dominated by media industry chatter. But this year's guest list suggests the topic du jour will likely...

    While the radical Islamists held a scimitar to the throat of freedom of expression over cartoons, Hun Sen, Cambodia’s dictator, was throttling those who dared speak out against his misdeeds and Vietnam’s grab of a good portion of Cambodia’s border. Prime Minister Hun Sen is the epitome of the old adage that a tiger never changes his stripes. First by a coup d’état in 1997 in which over 100 members of the Royalist Party democrats were murdered, then through rigged elections, and now through his kangaroo courts, Hun Sen has managed to intimidate and silence all opposition to his fascist...
