McClaughry: John Kerry focuses on climate during Ukraine crisis

By John McClaughry

Former Senator and presidential candidate John Kerry has long been one of my least favorite people. He is now the high level Biden climate ambassador charged with persuading the world to join in the war against climate change. Let me share with you one of his recent pronouncements.

Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry

When interviewed on British Broadcasting’s Arabic radio service. Kerry said: “I’m concerned about Ukraine, because of the people of Ukraine and because of the principles that are at risk … and I hope diplomacy will win. But [there will be massive greenhouse gas] emissions consequences to the war. But equally importantly, you’re going to lose people’s focus. You’re going to lose certainly big-country attention, because they will be diverted. And I think it could have a damaging impact. … And so I hope President Putin will help us to stay on track with respect to what we need to do for the climate.”

What a useful thought! I hope President Putin is listening.

The Wall Street Journal, hearing this Kerry observation, editorialized on “the Biden Administration’s obsession with climate, and with punishing fossil-fuel production, which has made the U.S. and Europe vulnerable to Mr. Putin’s energy blackmail. The climate lobby has made Mr. Putin more powerful. Every time Mr. Kerry visits Moscow, the boys in the Kremlin must think it’s Christmas.”

That may be a little harsh, but John Kerry is, in my view, a high-ranking climate nitwit.

  1.

  2. At least we know which gravytrain he rides on in addition to personal private jet…his son was joined @ the hip to Hunter Biden escapades in Ukraine along with Pelosis boy…no wonder Kerry employs climate diversionary tactic

  3. John Kerry has caused more damage to the USA, our reputation and our national security, than our enemies ever did or will.

  4. Me Me Me that’s the kerry doctrine ever since he anointed himself with purple hearts during
    the Vietnam war. Thank God the meat head didn’t get elected President along with his mentor
    Algore… A person that has the carbon foot print of a small city in Vermont has no business
    telling countries they need to do more for the climate hoax. He should leave that to the
    little grump Gretta…

  5. And Mr. Kerry is basically telling people and governments not to pay too much attention to a real live shooting war between Ukraine and Russia, but to keep their eyes on the bogus climate crisis.

    Are nitwits like Mr. Kerry born stupid or is it an acquired trait?

  6. Mr. McClaughry is way to kind to Mr. Kerry. Kerry is a nit-wit gadfly with no useful purpose in serving our country. Send him home.

  7. Kerry’s kid is married to an Iranian.. I think this has a whole lot to do with what he’s up too.
    I doubt he cares much about the climate, that is a means to an end for him.

  8. Climate Marxism – Control the means and (re)distribution of production by controlling the means and distribution of energy. It’s the marriage of the Degrowth Movement with Marxism.
