Biden And Kerry Get Humiliated On Earth Day, But Are Too Dumb To Realize It

From The MANHATTAN CONTRARIAN

April 22, 2021/ Francis Menton

Once again, it’s Earth Day. The first such day was 51 years ago, April 22, 1970.

Since that first one, Earth Day has served as an annual opportunity for sanctimonious socialist-minded apocalypticists to issue prophesies of imminent environmental doom. Here from the Competitive Enterprise Institute is a great list of some 50 or so such predictions uttered since the late 1960s, all of which have since been proven wrong. Interestingly, the ones from the time of the first Earth Day mostly concerned overpopulation, famine, and global cooling. Today, those things seem ever so quaint.

Somewhere along the line, the prophesy of a coming ice age faded away, and global warming surged forth as the much more fashionable doomsday prediction. Today, fealty to the global warming apocalypse orthodoxy is a prerequisite for admission to polite society. Our President goes around repeating the mantra that climate change is an “existential threat,” even as he signs Executive Orders and re-directs half the energies of the vast federal government to fight it.

And what better opportunity than the annual return of Earth Day for our great leaders to demonstrate their deep climate change sincerity? Thus last week we had President Biden’s personal climate emissary to the world, John Kerry, traveling to Shanghai to triumphantly welcome China on board with the official plan to “save the planet” through ending the use of fossil fuels; and today, Biden himself has followed up with his Earth Day Climate Summit, a virtual event said to be attended by leaders of some 40 or so nations, including the likes of China, India and Russia. Surely, things have now completely changed course since the evil Trump has been banished, and the world will shortly be saved by the re-invigoration of the glorious Paris Climate Agreement.

The problem of course is that China, Russia, India, and for that matter all the rest of the developing countries, don’t care a whit about the whole climate change thing, and they also know that the Paris Agreement is a total scam. For a developing country, the basic strategy reflected in Paris is to hit up the U.S. and Europe for a lot of money, while simultaneously getting the more developed countries to cripple their own economies even as you yourself commit to absolutely nothing.

China, Russia and India each have their own unique approaches to executing this strategy, but in general Russia and India have been relatively up front in just saying that they aren’t going along with fossil fuel restrictions for themselves. China has stood out for being completely cynical and Machiavellian in how it has taken advantage of, and indeed humiliated, the incredibly unintelligent individuals, Biden and Kerry, who are supposedly leading the United States in its efforts.

It was only a few weeks ago, in March, that senior diplomats of the U.S. and China met in Alaska. The U.S. delegation briefly mentioned the subject of the genocide of the Uighur minority currently going on in Western China; and the Chinese delegation then took the opportunity to dress down the Americans for about 20 minutes for the U.S.’s own supposedly-comparable human rights derelictions. The Biden-appointed U.S. team members, all emanating from the guilt-ridden, America-hating progressive movement, were caught speechless. They don’t have the vaguest idea how to stand up for their own country, or even why they should.

Immediately after that, John Kerry picks up and goes to China, all happy-happy because he is supposedly going to get the Chinese to sacrifice and restrict their economy in the name of fighting climate change. This guy goes way beyond dumb, and all the way to completely delusional. He must know (mustn’t he?) that China is far and away the world’s largest emitter of “greenhouse gases,” now running at a rate just about double that of the U.S. He must also know (mustn’t he?) that under the Paris Agreement China has made no commitment at all to reduce emissions, but only has promised to “peak” its emissions by 2030, reserving the right to increase emissions as much as it wants until then. But does he know that China currently has some 250 GW of yet additional coal-fired power plants under development — which is more than the entire existing U.S. fleet of coal-fired power plants? These Chinese plants are all going to get built over the next few years, and then will be around for many decades to come. And then there are the hundreds of other coal plants that China is planning or building for other countries around the world. In the face of all this, even before the trip, according to the South China Morning Post on April 17, “Kerry and other Biden administration officials have said that it is vital to work on climate with China.” Nothing like starting a negotiation from a position of strength.

And so last week Kerry got exactly the treatment in China that you would expect. In short, the Chinese gave him the scorn and contempt that he deserves. As usual, China made no specific promises whatsoever on reducing its own emissions, and took the opportunity to lecture Kerry on the U.S. fulfilling its commitments. Chinese Vice-Premier Han Zheng had this to say (from the SCMP):

“China welcomes the US return to the Paris agreement, and expects the US side to uphold the agreement, shoulder its due responsibilities and make due contributions.”

And from China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying:

“[The U.S.] return [to the Paris Agreement] is by no means a glorious comeback but rather a truant getting back to class,” Hua said of the United States. She pressed the United States to “offer how it will make up for the lost four years”, including payments to the UN-backed Green Climate Fund, which provides support to developing countries worst hit by climate change.

Which brings us to President Biden’s Climate Summit today. You may know that the previous “commitment” made by President Obama under the Paris Climate Agreement was that the U.S. would reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 26 to 28% from the level of 2005, and do so by 2025. (I put the word “commitment” in quotes because the Paris Agreement was never submitted to the Senate for ratification as a Treaty, and therefore was never binding on the United States.). Anyway, Biden today, with absolutely nothing in hand from China after Kerry’s failed mission last week, nevertheless proceeded essentially to double the U.S. promise to cut emissions. From the New York Times today:

In a show of renewed resolve after four years of the Trump administration’s unvarnished climate denial, Mr. Biden formally pledged that the United States would cut its emissions at least in half from 2005 levels by 2030.

And how about handing out some tens or hundreds of billions of the infinite free U.S. taxpayer cash to every third world kleptocrat?

[The Biden] administration also announced it intends to double by 2024 the amount of money it offers to help developing countries, compared with what the United States spent annually in the second half of the Obama administration.

Estimates are that U.S. annual greenhouse gas emissions are currently running about 15% below the 2005 level, with the reduction almost entire due to the fracking revolution — and having next-to-nothing to do with increasing amounts of wind and solar energy, which are insignificant. But that leaves about 35% to go from the 2005 level to get to Biden’s newly-announced goal. You can be sure that Biden himself has absolutely no idea how this might be accomplished. And indeed it will not be accomplished. However, Biden promises to do enormous damage to the U.S. economy in the futile effort.

Xi, meanwhile, is rubbing his hands with glee at the stupidity of the U.S. leaders. He pockets each successive U.S. promise to destroy its own economy, and then responds with empty words and no specific commitments at all from his own side. Xi actually showed up at Biden’s summit today. Here is what he had to say, as quoted in the New York Times:

President Xi Jinping of China said his country would “strictly limit increasing coal consumption” in the next five years and phase it down in the following five years. . . . Mr. Xi repeated his pledge from last year to draw down carbon emissions to net zero by 2060. And, in a pointed reminder to his host, President Biden, he said that the industrialized countries of the West had a historic responsibility to act faster to reduce emissions.

I love that part about “strictly limit[ing]” coal consumption. With 250 GW of new coal power plants in development, what does that even mean? I guess that building more new coal plants than the U.S. even has is now a “strict limit.” China’s emissions, already far the largest in the world, will continue to increase rapidly, without any sort of quantitative promise to do otherwise. Oh, there is that mention of “net zero” emissions by 2060. Xi must have some sort of scam of purchased credits in mind. But don’t worry, he is already almost 68 and knows that he will be dead long before 2060. So will most everyone else who attended this summit. Nobody will be around to remember this meaningless statement.

You are a collateral damage of democracy, hence no need to get concerned for those who fall victims to democracy. Americans & Brits elected masters of deception by their free will. Chinese & Russians had no such privilege, while their leaders couldn’t care less about your predicament or the global warming, to which they occasionally pay lip service.
In warfare the force (governments have lot of it) and deceptions win the battles. You have no force but nothing is stopping you to spread deception among your peers. Trump was often accused of being Putin’s poodle, maybe it’s time to start looking for a Xi’s Chi-wawa or is it Xi’s Chi-huahua.

China’s strategy seems to be to delay, defer and deny while doing nothing to impair their economy, but encouraging western nations to damage theirs. China expects to be the dominant global superpower by 2050 and thus they will be able to dictate the terms of any action at that time.

China is a country with a large population with the muzzle of a gun pointed at their heads. They can never be a superpower.

Talked to a friend yesterday. He told me that Biden bought him a new gun. He used his stimulus money for it. I bought a new sail.

My friend and I have something in common besides working at nuke plants and sailing. We both served in the military for a few years before having regular jobs.

The US is a superpower because we stand the line around the world for what matters. Climate change does not matter. It is not a real problem just a political talking point.

The term ‘superpower’ was invented to describe the totally new situation which had arisen after the invention of the atomic bomb. Before 1945 the world’s most powerful nations were called the Great Powers. But after 1945 first the USA, then the USSR, developed weapons which would enable them to totally destroy their chief military rival. So, if China ever has enough nuclear weapons, and the delivery systems capable of sending them to the USA or Russia, then China will be a superpower.

At the end of WWII, the US, British Empire (which dissolved), and the USSR were clearly super powers.

France is an example of a country with nuclear capability that did not achieve superpower status. Same with China and India.

When I resigned from the US navy in 1980 is it was partly because under Carter we were not longer a superpower due to weak leadership.

Regan restored out place in the world and the USSR collapsed leaving the US the only superpower.

China and India both have large populations and nuclear weapons but neither can project military.

It is about leadership from top to bottom. China has strong leadership. The goal is to benefit the party.

There are no rich people in China. If you have a single wide on Standard Oil Rd in Shreveport Louisiana you would not be considered rich by our standards. However, you would be richer than anyone in China.

I don’t think they’re delaying anything. They’re up front about making progress with several hundred Coal fired power stations across the world.

They are well aware Democracy in the West is serving their purpose rather well. An impotent and confused Biden along with the greedy egotist Kerry, having stolen an election, probably with China’s help, are in no position to challenge them.

Xi is blackmailing the Democrat party; do as they are told or the beans will be spilled. How else would the incompetent fools running the US be in power? Why else would they submit to ritual humiliation by Xi whenever he feels like it.

Because Xi bought them.

And if COP 26 is held in Glasgow this year, and Boris Johnson (or rather his fiancé, Princess Nut Nut) is determined it will be, and to make it a spectacle to rival the London Olympics, China, Russia and India will walk all over the west once again.

But it will be a wake up call for many, which is the only consolation.

Lets stipulate that this is true. So what? How would anyone know, and if we all knew, how few could even process the implications? And for those who remain who understand what that means, what infinitesimally small number of people could even do anything? And if they could do anything, what would that be?

They have already proven they can win any election they want. They also proved that there is no opposition Party. They have also proven that the military, the courts, law enforcement and every institution that is in place to act as a safe guard is utterly and hopelessly corrupt and incompetent.

Hi Hotspot.

You might find this interesting:

In Quest of a Multi-Polar World

There was still a view 50 years ago that imperialism was [essentially] economic. And this is the view that there’s still a rivalry for instance, between America and China or America and Europe and other countries.

But I think the whole world has changed so much in the last 50 years that what we have now is not really so much a conflict between America and China or America and Russia, but between a financial system economy run by finance and an economy run by governments — democratic or less democratic, but certainly a mixed economy.

That was the tax base to make finance basically something public, and government would decide who gets the funding and thus, the idea of finance in the public sector was going to be pretty much what it is in China. You create bank credit in order to finance capital investment in factories. It means the production of machinery, agricultural modernization, of transport, infrastructure of high-speed trains of ports and all of that.

But in the United States and England, you have finance becoming something completely different. Banks don’t lend money to factories. They don’t want money to make means of production. They make money to take over other assets. Eighty percent of bank loans are mortgage loans to transfer the ownership of real estate.

In terms of facts on the ground, are we going slowly but surely and ominously towards an absolute divorce by a system based on rentier, ultra-financialization, which is the American system, not productive capitalism at all.

And so, you have the West turning into a rent-extractive economy, a rent-seeking economy.

https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2021/03/28/in-quest-of-multi-polar-world/

And if you are living in a financial system economy, affordable energy, jobs and factories are not important… and the climate change scare furthers that along quite nicely.

Just thought this was an insightful piece… for what it is worth.

In the recent television series ‘ War Factiries ‘ it was shown how the industrial might of the USA, and to a lesser extent the UK, enabled production to be ramped up to such an extent that the Allied Powers were able to win WW2 and then produced the economic recovery of the succeeding years.
Now we have financial institutions ‘ playing with money ‘ instead of using it to create solid wealth and productive capacity.
We don’t seem now to have the productive capacity to fulfill the future dreams of an electricity powered world, nor are there the basic resources there to use.
We have outsourced production to Chins, and will have to play on their terms unless we get back to some common sense.
Under Biden and Kerry we seem to be ‘ fighting with one arm tied behind our back ‘ in our dealings with China. We cut back, China has a free ticket on CO2.

Greg
April 24, 2021 2:36 pm

With 250 GW of new coal power plants in development, what does that even mean?

It is probably incorrect if you are interpreting 250 GW of new coal power plants to mean 250 GW of additional coal power plants.

China has a lot of old dirty coal powered generation ( by that I mean real smelly air pollution not “dirty CO2” ) . Much of the new capacity will replace poorly regulated, polluting plant.

They will also be more efficient at generating electrical power, so the CO2/kWh will go down.IIRC that was about the only thing the Chinese did say they would do: become more efficient at emitting more CO2.

Obviously that is something they would have wanted to do anyway in improving their economy, it is not a concession to “saving the planet”.

It’s no secret the Chinese are building 460 more coal fired units (so far) increasing the fleet to nearly 3500 in the short term. (By contrast the US has about 550 coal units and shrinking fast).

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JKJJa-jwK6YpkEQKP2bcENHR2yoS40ur8baQnIXHtIU/edit#gid=581593862

China’s newly released Five Year Plan is hell bent on “independence”… in the energy sector that means a switch to EVs to be powered by indigenous coal and nuclear plants replacing oil imports from vulnerable Middle East sources. The other energy resource China will use is hydrogen, a by-product of their sprawling chemical industry. In 2019 China slashed Green Tech investment by 40%. Green tech is for export.

It’s in China’s interest to hand-wave about Renewables even if they’re doing the opposite. A cynic would think they’re encouraging the West to commit economic suicide, although Beijing is very clear of their intention to increase CO2 emissions until at least 2030.

I guess that makes me a cynic.

Even after 2030, the Chicoms don’t have to do anything about CO2. Obama and Biden made sure it was all voluntary when it comes to the Chicoms. That was the only way Obama-Biden could get the Chicoms to sign the deal, and getting the deal signed was the most important point for Obama and Biden. The details of the deal didn’t matter to them.

This is the first time in US history where a major political party is almost entirely controlled by a foreign adversary! Of course, many RINOs, and media and business leaders are as well! Even during the height of the Cold War, the Soviets only had control of the radical wing of the DemoKKKrats plus the anti-nuke and nascent environmental movements! There used to be patriots in the crooked party, but that is no longer PC! Can the stupid party get it’s act together before the DemoKKKrats and their ChiCom owners completely subvert the US political system and turn us into a paper eagle? Stay tuned!

The Democrats want everyone to think the Democrats have it all figured out. They don’t. Not even close. They don’t understand that they are living in a delusional, socialist, false reality, which causes them to make one mistake after another, to the detriment of us all.

I think both of them are equally delusional, but what sets Kerry apart to me is he is a traitor to his country and everything he does undermines the United States and he has done this all his life.

His latest traitorous crime was going behind the back of the Trump administration and advising the Mad Mullahs of Iran not to make a deal with Trump. I think the Logan Act applies to these activities of Kerry. Maybe a new Republican-controlled Congress can look into this matter in the near future.

President Xi Jinping of China said his country would “strictly limit increasing coal consumption” in the next five years and phase it down in the following five years”

It means that China was building infrastructure faster than the populace and businesses could effectively use them.

Without massive investment/technology from Western and developing civilizations, China can not maximally utilize their new coal/nuclear plants. Build it and they will come doesn’t work in this case.

For purposes of getting the Chicoms and Indians to sign the Paris Climate Accord, Obama-Biden were willing to designate them as developing countries, which relieved them of any responsibility to cut back on CO2 production, and of course, the Chicoms and Indians were happy to sign on to an agreement that did not require them to do anything other than receive money from rich Western nations. A pretty good deal if you can get it. Who wouldn’t sign that kind of deal?

Apparently you just declare yourself it and hope that your enemy are stupid …. and look what happened. You might want to extend that to what political idiots accept per capita emissions.

And how about handing out some tens or hundreds of billions of the infinite free U.S. taxpayer cash to every third world kleptocrat?

The US Taxpayers just LOVE funding Somali WarLords … see: Blackhawk Down

That’s actually a very interesting point. Where, exactly, are these suitcases of cash going to end up? We know that LiveAid and Saint Bob part funded at least one African warlords weapons procurement so where is this money going and what is the financial oversight involved in ensuring it gets spent correctly? If I was forking out billions for this fund, that’s one of the very first questions I’d want answered.

From the article: ““[The U.S.] return [to the Paris Agreement] is by no means a glorious comeback but rather a truant getting back to class,” Hua said of the United States. She pressed the United States to “offer how it will make up for the lost four years”, including payments to the UN-backed Green Climate Fund, which provides support to developing countries worst hit by climate change.”

That’s what it’s all about: Show me the money, Uncle Sucker!

American Democrats are dangerously stupid. All the Bad Guys have their number, and the Democrats are too stupid to realize it. Useful Idiots for America’s enemies.

“But don’t worry, he is already almost 68 and knows that he will be dead long before 2060. So will most everyone else who attended this summit. Nobody will be around to remember this meaningless statement.”

Biden won’t remember “this meaningless statement” tomorrow.

That’s the political beauty of the Climate Scam, no one can be held accountable after they are dead. You can say and promise anything. Sure beats a 4 year election cycle now, doesn’t it?

Wish I could pay my taxes like that.

Earth Day is the day they all come together for Mass Group Therapy-
Greta Thunberg ‘curing’ mental illness with the ‘medication’ of climate activism (msn.com)

Also known as Blair’s Law-
Coined by Australian journalist, Tim Blair as “the ongoing process by which the world’s multiple idiocies are becoming one giant, useless force.”

Unfortunately it’s extremely virulent and much worse than Covid. The only known cure is another bout of incarceration and slaughter of millions unless you mask up with reason and the lessons of forebears.

How does a “developing nation” protect itself from the future when they lose that position? Make sure a lot of real developing nations are in debt to them now.

As long as the MSM continue with this nonsensical narrative we will continue our rapid spiral down the rabbit hole, and the ordinary guy in the street can do nothing about it. Unfortunately whenever this website is mentioned in other forums, by way of a plea for the indoctrinated to open their eyes, it is rejected by many as a site where conspiracy theorists go for their fodder.

It sure looks like the world has taken note of the US’ predicament – American brawn for British brains. Just look at Vietnam, Afghanistan, a trail of destruction.

Look at Biden and Kerry – they were never expected to have brains. At Anchorage Blinken”s absence of brains was speechless.

Prince Charles’ Great Reset, a product of British brains (seriously), is intended to be pushed by American brawn, even billionaire brawn.

That is why Americans have the vague intuition of being outsmarted by China and Russia, at every turn. They have not cottoned on, yet, and flounder hilariously frothing about Russia and China, brainlessly wallowing.

Meanwhile they do the Prince’s bidding (chuckles at Buckingham are audible).

emitter of “greenhouse gases,” 

I like this – any knowledgable individual should always qualify these two words that refer to a modern fable.

Atmospheric water is a cooling agent – albedo trumps long wave absorption.

Hey, let’s be grateful for the fact Old Joe didn’t promise to cut USA emissions by 120%. That would be the normal target for the woke observers in society. They have acclimatised themselves to the notion of above unity voting rights, so above unity/total energy reductions would seem doable to them.

On John Kerry and his failed trip to China,I read somewhere that Kerry said that climate science is so straightforward that it could be understood by a twelve year old child without any knowledge of chemistry or physics.
In fairness to the ‘climate Czar’,I have not been able to track down that quote.
Perhaps it is apocryphal.
However I have an accurate quote from Professor Michael Mann in his book,”The Madhouse Effect” similar in tone-
“The basics of climate science are very simple and always have been.
Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere traps heat and we are adding more CO2 to the atmosphere.The rest is details.”
Fortunately the details have not escaped Professors Richard Lindzen, Steve Koonin, Will Happer, the late Freeman Dyson, the late Edward Teller and a host of others.

And the American people supposedly voted the worst of the worst to govern us. It is totally incomprehensible that a buffoon such as Kerry is back in a position of power. Unless of course there was election fraud on a major scale.

This is jaw dropping ignorance!

It would be like somebody in a game of high stakes poker, showing their opponents what the cards are in their hand the entire time, and letting their opponent pick whatever cards they would like to play out of the deck.
Then, after a few losses by you, report back to others, not in the game that everything is fair and square and ask them to finance your poker playing against this opponent, using the exact same rules………. for the next 10 years.
