High Flying John Kerry Recruits Big Wigs For His “World War Zero” Climate Scam

It’s funny how you get all these rich and powerful folks whose carbon footprints are massive attempting to tell Other People how to live their lives. Well, not really tell so much as get government to apply force. This is one of the major points that changed me from a warmist to a Skeptic

John Kerry Recruits Bill Clinton, Leonardo DiCaprio for New Climate Coalition

Former Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday announced the launch “World War Zero,” a star-studded coalition of former heads of state and Hollywood figures dedicated to advocating for solutions to climate change.

The forthcoming organization’s website states their chief objective is to mobilize resources to tackle global warming in a way akin to the Western allies in World War II.

The New York Times reports that John Kerry, who served as a senator in Massachusetts from 1985 to 2013, has recruited former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter and former Republican governors John Kasich and Arnold Schwarzenegger. A-listers such as actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Ashton Kutcher, and rocker Sting are also on board. Over 60 figures are said to have signed up for the coalition.

“We’re going to try to reach millions of people, Americans and people in other parts of the world, in order to mobilize an army of people who are going to demand action now on climate change sufficient to meet the challenge,” Kerry said in an interview with the Times.

That squeeing NY Times article is interesting in that “reporter” Lisa Friedman fails to ask any substantive questions directly to Kerry or in wondering as to whether all these folks, including Kerry, will be giving up their own use of fossil fuels and making their own lives carbon neutral. She notes in the second paragraph

The name, World War Zero, is supposed to evoke both the national security threat posed by the earth’s warming and the type of wartime mobilization that Mr. Kerry argued would be needed to stop the rise in carbon emissions before 2050. The star-studded group is supposed to win over those skeptical of the policies that would be needed to accomplish that.

Right, right, this is totally going to convince us. Especially when they all take unnecessary fossil fueled trips on private jets to the UN IPCC meeting in Spain.

With a starting budget of $500,000, Mr. Kerry said, he and other coalition members intend to hold town meetings across the country starting in January. Members will head to battleground states key to the 2020 election, but also to military bases where climate discussions are rare and to economically depressed areas that members say could benefit from clean energy jobs.

So, fossil fueled trips, eh? Will they be willing to listen to Skeptics, or will it just be a once sided diatribe? And, seriously, do they think Skeptics are going to listen to Democrats, squishy Republicans, and Hollywood celebs? All of whom are massive hypocrites?

Oh, and keep Bill Clinton away from the young ladies.

    Wait, what?

    he and other coalition members intend to hold town meetings across the country starting in January. Members will head to battleground states key to the 2020 election, but also to military bases where climate discussions are rare.

    So, two former Presidents and a former presidential candidate want to travel to military bases to campaign against the Commander-in-Chief’s policies? Tell me how that works again.

      Just goes to show how out of touch they are with the military. The US military is a full fledged member of the executive branch of the US government. As such, it is on the leading edge of everything every political activist dreams up. The US military has been examining the “fully burdened cost of fuel” for decades on everything it buys. The US Navy buys Biodiesel despite it costing three times what normal diesel costs. US Army Housing has has “smart meters” for electricity since the 90’s. Add to that the fact that US military members all have access to the internet and Cable TV, There is simply no argument to be made that they are somehow “left out” of the climate discussion.

    Remember how Mr Kerry flew to Switzerland to warn the attendees at the World Economic Forum in the hoity-toity ski resort of Davos about global warming climate change? There were guesstimates that there’d be around 1,500 private jets landing in Davos to transport the Patricians there, and Lurch wanted to address them.

    We’ve had videoconferencing technology available for more than twenty years now, but no, that doesn’t spew as many carbon dioxide molecules into the atmosphere as a jet does.

    Let’s tell the truth here: conservation and reduced lifestyles are meant for the plebeians, not Our Betters.

    The name “World War Zero” won’t catch on. It sounds too much like a zombie apocalypse movie.

    We’ve seen this B-movie before.
    Same story, same actors.
    Another box office flop.
    Go for it.

    Kerry is up to his eyeballs in the Ukraine corruption so what better way to seek cover than to Jump all aboard the AGW bandwagon. Same thing the POPE DID when his kingdom was in danger of collapsing and now no one talks about the Perverts running that church but rather how even the POPE supports AGW.(This is not an indictment on Catholic mom and dads and children but rather those running the church. The leadership.)

    I mean seriously if you support AGW you can rape little boys and get away with it. What a fuked up world the Left is passing on to their children. And yes its the left because the left controls the MSM and the left were outraged until the POPE said oh, by the way, I believe in Climate change and the thunderous roar stopped INSTANTLY!!!!!!!!!!

    • Kye says:

      I noticed that too, D&G. I thought I was the only person to notice how the Fake News, Hollywood big mouths, the talking heads on CNNMSNBC, etc and even the late night “comedians” and SNL all went real quiet about queer pedophile priests once the Commie Pope said he was for the commie climate cult. Odd, isn’t it?

      • Doom and Gloom says:

        I agree Kye, I just don’t think hes a commie, but I do think it was a calculated strategy to remove the heat and keep the power to themselves. The church was in real danger, its foundations cracking around the world and so he took a chance. Diving into politics knowing that the people that would bring him down were the same people who could prop him up.

    The rule of thumb for carbon footprints for flights is 1/4 pound per seat per mile for commercial flights
    The 3500 mile trip flown by the boat skipper would have resulted in a carbon foot print if less than 1000 pounds
    A carbon offset for that amount currently costs less than $4
    Thus is about the amount of carbon licked down by one tree

    • formwiz says:

      And we’re supposed to believe little St Bitchy calculated all that?


      And carbon offsets are the indulgences of the climate hypocrisy.
