Asked about her appointment as Special Envoy for Climate Change and Health, Vanessa Kerry explained that "the climate crisis is a health crisis" with "seven million people a year dying from...

    Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry lashed out at House lawmakers during a committee hearing on Thursday over the criticisms of his use of a private jet that has emitted hundreds of metric tons of carbon, even as he battles climate change. "I just don't agree with your facts, which began with the presentation of one of the most outrageously persistent lies that I hear, which is this private jet," Kerry said during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing. "We don't own a private jet. I don't own a private jet.

    Multiple top officials within Special Presidential Envoy for Climate (SPEC) John Kerry's office engaged in a discussion about keeping certain budgetary items "off paper," according to recently-released documents. During a March 2022 email exchange — involving Deputy Climate Envoys Sue Biniaz and Rick Duke, former SPEC senior director for climate finance Leonardo Martinez-Diaz, senior adviser Jesse Young and nine other SPEC officials whose names were redacted — aides discussed how they would brief Kerry on the office's proposed budget for fiscal year 2023.

    There were high hopes in November when a global climate summit in Egypt adjourned with the creation of a fund to help poor countries cope with the ravages of global warming. But less than three months later, there are few signs that the United States and other wealthy nations will step up to bankroll the much-hyped fund. That’s why U.S. climate negotiator John F. Kerry said he had a succinct answer last month — at the Davos international economic conference — when he was asked about what he needed. “Money, money, money, money,” Kerry recalls saying. “It’s what we need,”...

    U.S. Climate Envoy John Kerry told the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Wednesday that the fight against climate change will only succeed if people around the world take on a wartime footing and accelerate action to curb carbon emissions. When asked if the world will meet the shared goal of limiting the global temperature increase to 1.5 Celsius by 2032, he said that target won’t be met given the current amount of effort being made. "We can’t hit 1.5," he said. "We’re not on track to do it now, and it’s not clear, absolutely clear that we will...

    ABU DHABI (Reuters) - U.S. climate envoy John Kerry on Sunday outlined core principles for a "high-integrity" carbon offset plan meant to help developing nations speed their energy transition, and next steps including establishing a consultative group. The Energy Transition Accelerator (ETA), first announced at last year's COP27 climate conference, is being developed by the United States with the Bezos Earth Fund and the Rockefeller Foundation to mobilise private capital. Kerry told the Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum in Abu Dhabi the aim was to create bankable deals to accelerate reduction of emissions, stressing that the ETA was not a...

    U.S. climate envoy John Kerry said it would "be great" if U.S. taxpayers would contribute financially to climate change but other countries will need to do their part to prevent cataclysmic consequences worldwide. During an event in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, Kerry told Washington Post editor Sally Buzbee that the United States was already the biggest humanitarian donor in the world but that more needed to be done globally to combat climate change after Buzbee asked whether taxpayer money would be necessary. "It'd be great if there was some — I mean, the United States of America is probably the...

    Democrat President Joe Biden’s “climate czar” has declared that the green agenda isn’t moving “fast enough” and warned global leaders that “everything has to accelerate.” Special Presidential Envoy for Climate Kerry issued the warning Thursday during an event hosted by the Washington Post. Nations around the world need to “accelerate” the transition from fossil fuels to green energy by “vast amounts,” he claimed. Kerry said that countries must ramp up efforts to meet green agenda goals in order to stave off the potential future human and financial impacts of climate change. The top Biden administration official particularly noted renewable sources...

    SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt — The lights were literally going out on this year’s U.N. Climate Change Conference in Egypt as weary negotiators engaged in the final hours of heated, middle-of-the-night bargaining. Yet one of the summit’s most powerful diplomats had to work the phones from afar, isolated in his hotel room after contracting covid-19. It was hardly the first time U.S. special climate envoy John F. Kerry, 78, has been tripped up in trying to exert U.S. environmental leadership. The former secretary of state is the face of the U.S. government’s response to climate change, but his résumé of accomplishments...

    SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt (AP) — U.S. Climate Envoy John Kerry has tested positive for COVID-19 at the U.N. climate talks in Egypt, a spokeswoman said late Friday night, the latest setback for what appeared to be stalled negotiations that were already going into overtime. Kerry’s illness was sure to add to worries about the speed of negotiations, which were scheduled to end Friday but are continuing with no clear end in sight.

    Pennsylvania Democrat John Fetterman recreated the classic 1979 Coca-Cola advertisement featuring football legend ‘Mean’ Joe Greene in a bizarre video during his failed 2016 U.S. Senate campaign. The original Coca-Cola advertisement began with Greene, a Pittsburgh Steelers legend, hobbling down the tunnel after a game when a child approaches him to offer a coke. Greene accepts it and tosses this child his jersey, saying, “thanks, kid.”

    Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman (D) says he “certainly would have voted” for President Joe Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act set to squeeze $20 billion from working and middle class households with new Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audits. Fetterman, running against Republican Mehmet Oz for the state’s open United States Senate race, made the remark during a panel discussion with Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) while on the campaign trail last week. “I certainly would have voted for the Inflation Reduction Act,” Fetterman said. Despite Biden’s claims, the Inflation Reduction Act does not include any provisions requiring the IRS to avoid targeting...
