John Kerry: Climate Inaction is a “Mutual Suicide Pact”

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

He talks – yet nobody acts. Has John Kerry finally noticed that nobody cares what he says about climate change?

‘Mutual suicide’: US issues stark warning on climate change

‘Our heads in the sand at our own peril,’ US envoy for climate warns, as leaders discuss security implications of global warming.

24 Feb 2021

The United States has warned inaction by world powers on climate change is tantamount to a “mutual suicide pact” after countries such as China, India, and Russia expressed scepticism on the global security threat it posed.

“But even though climate change has been repeatedly called ‘an existential threat’, we honestly have yet as a world to respond with the urgency required,” said Kerry.

‘Serious doubts’

Russia, India and China said climate change should be tackled in other global forums, not at the UN’s main grouping on imminent world threats.

We agree that climate change issues can exacerbate conflict. But are they really the root cause of these conflicts? There are serious doubts about this,” said Moscow’s ambassador to the UN, Vassily Nebenzia.

The breathtaking dysfunctionality of what is happening would be funny if it wasn’t so serious.

China and India have real issues to discuss, but all Kerry wants to talk about is climate change.

In 2020, nuclear armed China and India only just averted an all out war, after clashes in the disputed Ladakh Highlands near the Indian border with Chinese Tibet led to military fatalities and lots of heated rhetoric.

Russia is trying to lead an effort to broker a lasting peace accord between China and India.

But the US envoy is not pulling his weight. I suspect that every time the other participants try to talk about possible resolutions for the Chinese / Indian border dispute, Kerry makes outlandish claims about how if they all made greater efforts to reduce CO2 emissions, everyone would be able to live in harmony.

Of course, other countries might show more interest in John Kerry’s climate grandstanding, if Biden passes his two trillion dollar taxpayer cash giveaway.

10’000 years ago the last great glacier of the Pleistocene Ice Age Epoch, the Laurentide Ice Sheet was an almost mile high glacier that covered most of Canada and extended into the US as far as Pennsylvania. It took about 2,000 years to melt creating the Canadian lake country, the Great Lakes, the Ogalaga Aquafier and other geological landmarks. Why did it melt? My guess is Indian campfires and buffalo farts,

“Climate Change” is clearly the wolf in sheep’s clothing for most Progressives who almost by definition are Globalists. (The UN, BHO, Gates, et al.)

But the scary thing is that Kerry is an “aged Greta”; he really believes this Climate Alarm nonsense.

Biden also is different; he is absolutely “clueless” and will go in any direction his handlers and far Left promoters ask him to. He understands he is in his present role only because of them, and he’s not going to ruin a good thing.

It would appear that the climate will make things obvious to voters in the next year. They will need all their waffle to explain why the entire Northern Hemisphere is cold when they are trying to stop ‘warming’.

IF we are lucky things are sufficiently far from the ‘glacial attractor’ that in a decade or so things may recover back. But it is more than likely that the climate could go permanently glacial as we end the Holocene.

“But even though climate change has been repeatedly called ‘an existential threat’, we honestly have yet as a world to respond with the urgency required,” said Kerry.”

So, according to this mental midget, the fact that someone has called it an existential threat, and done so over and over again, means that urgent action is required?
That everyone needs to accept that whoever said that is speaking from some position of deep insight and knowledge of the future?
Even when the urgent action deemed to be required by people of Kerry’s ilk can be shown to solve nothing, even when supposing for the sake of argument that the alarmist view is correct?
Their so-called solutions exclude the only known means to actually produce the energy we need without emitting any CO2!
Countries which have gone whole hog for renewables have done little more than throw their populations into a state of abject energy poverty!

And as if that was not ridiculous enough, Kerry and his oh-so excitable alarmist brethren have the distinction of being the very individuals on the planet whose lifestyle makes them the very worst offenders of the “climate crimes” they themselves have delineated.
If actions speak louder than words, and they do, no one should believe a word of the things these people say or agree to do one single thing, or consent to spending one red cent, up to and until people like John Kerry start acting like they believe the things they say.

Those who seek to control us would be very happy to leave the rest of us freezing and shivering while we starve in the dark.

Kerry: “even though climate change has been repeatedly called ‘an existential threat’”

Called by whom? It’s certainly not in the impact papers. The economic synthesis of those projects that the much richer world of the future will be slightly less rich as a result of global warming. There is *no* plausible scientific argument for climate change being an “existential threat” to humans, and that self-proclaimed climate scientists don’t slap this nonsense down every chance they get shows exactly how pro-science they really are.

But then, I suppose embracing adaptation as the logical climate change policy might prove an “existential threat” to an awful lot of climate science funding.

But the pasty-faced, sclerotic-looking and aged John Kerry repeating bromides from an earlier era, trying to revive a “crisis” that nobody else cares about, is a pathetic figure. He and Biden complement each other – two old fools who don’t understand that energy, especially electricity as well as fuel, are vital to the prosperity of this country. We need to get energy from as many different sources as possible, not force one subset (renewables) of a power mix upon the rest of us. Especially in the name of a so-called “solution” – carbon reduction – in need of a problem.

Globally they are spending 5000 billion dollars annually to halt CO2/climate change (5 trillion) which is advertised as the best way to help people and the environment, to be doubled to 10,000 $billion by 2030. Kerry says this will pay for itself by halting severe weather. This public money is funnelled into mysterious climate investment funds run by banks and capital investment companies with unelected boards. Much of the cash eventually flows to companies like GE, Siemens, their shareholders, and private energy companies. Much of it spent in colonial style monopolisation of energy markets in the developing world. They then have the audacity to turn around and charge consumers more for operations and delivery. Meanwhile healthcare, social safety, education, infrastructure investment, and environmental protection are woefully underfunded and undervalued.

But the reality is that, based on the paleoclimate record and the work done with models, the climate change we are experiencing is caused by the sun and the oceans over which mankind has no control. Despite the hype , there is no real evidence that CO2 has any effect on climate and there is plenty of scientific rationale t support the conclusion that the climate sensitivity of CO2 is zero. It is all a matter of science. But even if we could somehow stop the Earth’s climate form changing, extreme weather events and sea level rise would continue unabated because they are part of the current climate. Mankind does not know what the optimum global climate actually is let alone how to achieve it. Fighting climate change is a wasted effort.

Most people do not know it, but before Kerry got involved with politics, he flirted with an acting career.
He famously auditioned for the part in Pulp Fiction that eventually went to John Travolta, but which was originally supposed to have been acted by Michael Madsen.
Madsen was Vic Vega…his brother.

He looks like Vincent Price. Unfortunately for Mr Kerry he’s not entertaining and at least the horror films of Mr Price had reasonably plausible plots unlike the dreadfully predictable and implausible endless remakes of ‘Global Warming’ such as ‘Climate Emergency’.
Here are some more C movies from the same studio:
‘Zombie Science’
‘Zombie Science 2’
‘Return of the Zombie Science’ (etc.)
‘Zombie Science returns again’
‘Fracking Hell’
The Day After Tomorrow’

They have tried comedy also, such as:
‘Cloudy with a chance of Polar Bears’

This John Kerry and his most fearsome weapon of mass destruction stand up routine.

 “Climate change is the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.”

And his climate science and co2 for dummies lessons. So take notice you dumbo deniers.

“This is not tough. This is simple. Kids at the earliest age can understand this.” 

“Try and picture a very thin layer of gases – a quarter-inch, half an inch, somewhere in that vicinity – that’s how thick it is. It’s in our atmosphere. It’s way up there at the edge of the atmosphere.”

57 degrees for literally millions of years so pay attention to the great man you climate denying dumbo’s.

“And for millions of years – literally millions of years – we know that layer has acted like a thermal blanket for the planet – trapping the sun’s heat and warming the surface of the Earth to the ideal, life-sustaining temperature. Average temperature of the Earth has been about 57 degrees Fahrenheit, which keeps life going.”

I believe he is taking his gig on tour soon so yall need go see the great man and pay homage, and carbon taxes of course you wild eyed whacko’s

Thanks for that Gary …
(I can’t understand anyone cancelling my ‘+’; mebbe Kerry reads looks at this site)

If questioned, he would just say that the ‘thin layer’ was just an analogy to help people understand. But it would be nice to see him questioned …

“Yes, or No … Mr Kerry, do you still believe that there is a thin atmospheric layer of CO2, way up there at the edge, that warms the earth? And how does this tie in with your qualifications to be climate Czar?”

(It’s like the David Suzuki’s (WRITTEN) statement that global warming is like your car heating up in the sun because of the carbon in the windows. How do they get away with this shit?)

Missouri lawmakers again trying to pull plug on wind energy line

https://www.stltoday.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/missouri-lawmakers-again-trying-to-pull-plug-on-wind-energy-line/article_b2f7f7f5-351e-57d9-8cd4-f810b62f1295.html

The move is the latest in a string of attempts to stop the private company from using eminent domain to take land for the project, which aims to bring Kansas wind energy to Missouri, Illinois and Indiana.

Eminent domain is typically used by governments to take private property for public use. In this case, Invenergy said it needs the power in order to claim land it needs for the towers that will carry the above-ground line….

First thing Biden should do is sign an executive order banning all private jets.

Kerry can fly on commercial carriers as easily as anyone else where the carbon footprint is less.

John Kerry has a long history of giving away things to our enemies. In 1972, he started independently negotiating with the Vietcong, behind the back of then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

In 2014, Kerry (as official Secretary of State this time) “negotiated” the nuclear deal with Iran, which involved giving the Iranians billions of dollars in free money for practically nothing in return.

Now he tells us that the world will end in 9 years if the USA doesn’t reduce its CO2 emissions. News flash–the USA has reduced its CO2 emissions over the past four years, but the increase in China’s emissions is much larger. So let’s give away all our energy jobs (and cheap energy) to China, and enrich China at our expense (implies Kerry), and the world’s CO2 emissions continue to rise. Then, 10 years from now China will surpass the US economy, the world has not ended, and President Xi will laugh all the way to the bank selling us solar panels using Chinese rare-earth elements.

How about a different mutual suicide pact: Let Kerry and President Xi play Russian roulette together, to which Xi would probably answer, “You go first”.

It has been reported that Kerry has been actively trying to undermine the Trump policy on the Mad Mullahs of Iran. Kerry has been advising the terrorists to hold out and not negotiated with Trump.

The Obama-Biden “Justice” Department tried to put General Flynn in jail for talking to the Russians before Trump became president, even though it was Flynn’s official job to talk to the Russians.

Now here we have Kerry blatantly undermining U.S. foreign policy, siding with the biggest State sponsor of terror in the world.

Kerry is a traitor to his country. He undermines the US every chance he gets.

When will Kerry be charged with treason? He and Joe make quite a pair. Two traitors running our country.

Add oxygen et. al. Until the stromatolites produced enough oxygen the world got along very well on carbon dioxide and nitrogen, but now we humans are on a different path: oxygen and silicon. And as we make more electronics out of silicon the oxygen will be liberated to the atmosphere for all to enjoy. First came the age of plants, then the age of animals and the next age will be silicon-based. And John Kerry or his electronic clone will still be complaining about global warming.

China is laughing with glee as they watch Western Industrialized countries destroy their economies, currencies, and industrial sectors to fight the fictitious CO2 Monster.

China’s electricity costs are now just $0.08/kWh, while the West tries to rapidly emulate Germany’s wind/solar Green Grid at $0.46/kWh…

Moreover, while the West timidly close down their nuclear plants, China is rapidly pursuing next-generation nuclear power technology which is theoretically capable of producing unlimited power at just $0.03/kWh…

At some point, Western countries’ high energy costs, rolling blackouts, over-regulations and high taxes will make their production costs completely uncompetitive, and will be forced to move their production facilities to China—checkmate…

Has Kerry or any of the other high-profile alarmists ever examined international polls listing the chief concerns of residents of a variety of countries? If so, they’d find that climate change inevitably ranks at or near the bottom of people’s priorities and well-behind jobs, the economy, healthcare, education, national security, infrastructure, personal safety and the like. Yet the alarmists try to tell us that we should consider global warming at the top, and it doesn’t help much that the mainstream media is riding the same bandwagon. Trying to find balanced coverage on the issue is almost impossible, especially on the BBC, CBC, CNN, etc.

This one is the AGW Bond Market, and as long as scientists support this scantimonious hypocrisy the market will grow.

February 24, 2021 5:57 pm

John Kerry is going at it all wrong – instead of browbeating everyone and ignoring his own gigantic carbon footprint, he should park the limos, jets and yachts, live in a little unheated tent, stop shaving and lead large gender-neutral crowds in the singing of “Klimate Kumbaya”.

Nah, even then I would not believe he really meant it.

Let’s tell John Kerry to put his nonsense rhetoric on hold for 10 years to see where world temperatures settle. Since Southern California temperatures get colder each winter, I won’t need to put a cover on my pool. We can turn it into the neighborhood skating rink.
I asked my gas company to send me a 10 year average of my fuel usage and they refused. They knew winter temperatures would be going down and my gas usage was going up. Scrambled around through my file drawer to check our usage, and sure enough they were right.

Talking about lecturing:
Discovery Channel from USA recently produced a series of 15 photographic and commentary booklets for Australian school age people. They were sold to buyers of the local newspaper Herald Sun at a few dollars a booklet. 
They are out-and-out propaganda.
Here, for example, is the commentary on burning fossil fuels.
 
Global warming can be directly linked to
BURNING FOSSIL FUELS as the coal, oil or gas
used to create electricity or power our cars
causes carbon pollution. Australia is the number
one exporter of coal and gas, surpassing China
America and India, making it one of the world’s
biggest climate polluters. To address climate
change, in 2016 countries adopted the Paris
Agreement—an agreement within the United
Nations Framework Convention on Climate
Change (UNFCCC) with the aim to limit a global
temperature rise to well below two degrees
Celsius. Australia’s Paris Agreement target is to
Reduce emissions to 26-28 percent on 2005 levels
by 2030. In order to help achieve this, the country
needs to increase its supply and use of renewable
energy sources, such as solar power and wind,
and to take a stronger stance on climate change issues.

While Australia passed Indonesia only last year to be number 1 exporter of liquid natural gas and is number one for coal, these are only two measures of Australia’s energy scene. They leave out oil, for example. Other countries are well ahead in other forms of fossil fuel exports, but more importantly, in use.
The total CO2 emissions in China in 2019 were 30.3% of world total. USA, lecturing Australia here, was 13.4%. Australia was 1.1% of world total, behind even international aviation at 1.6%. These are the figures that matter for school children to read. They can see that anything done by Australia will have little effect on global CO2 levels.  Geoff S

I find it interesting that Kerry criticises Australia for exporting Coal but praises China who buys it all to feed there ever expanding number of coal fired power plants. If you want to stop the export of our coal then get developing countries to stop buying it. Ironically if we don’t supply it someone else will and whoever it is will supply worse quality coal than we supply.
