Climate Envoy John Kerry Fails Miserably While In China

After taking a long, fossil fueled flight to China, all Kerry got was the t-shirt

China ‘tells US envoy John Kerry it will follow its own climate road map’

Beijing has rebuffed American calls to make more public pledges on climate change before a UN climate summit in November, insisting it should follow its own plan rather than bowing to US pressure, according to a person familiar with the two countries’ negotiations.

During talks with Chinese leaders in Tianjin, US climate envoy John Kerry presented a list of proposals for Beijing to accelerate its climate efforts. They included a public commitment to the 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) limit of global warming targeted in the 2015 Paris Agreement, a definite time frame for carbon emissions to peak before 2030, and a moratorium on financing overseas coal-fired projects.

But the two sides failed to reach agreement, according to the source, who requested anonymity.

China Mocks Biden’s ‘Absurd’ Attempt to Make Nice with John Kerry Climate Visit

China’s state-run Global Times did not think much of U.S. “climate envoy” John Kerry’s visit to Tianjin in a Thursday editorial, blasting Kerry’s climate-change talks as an ineffectual effort to mend fences without giving China the apologies and restitution it deserves for various alleged American offenses.

The Global Times said it was “quite absurd” for the Biden administration to think it can separate “cooperation on climate issues” from other aspects of the bruised U.S.-Chinese relationship, scoffing at President Joe Biden’s attempt to “look righteous and reasonable through the lens of climate cooperation.”

“The overall U.S. policy toward China has been so wicked. It has imposed a whole-of-government and wide-scale crackdown on China. Then the US suddenly put on a friendly face on the climate issue, inviting China to cooperate with it as if nothing has ever happened,” the Global Times fulminated.

As is usually the case with Chinese Communist Party (CCP) propaganda today, the Global Times strongly hinted Biden could begin repairing America’s bilateral relationship with China by dropping all investigations into the origin of the Wuhan coronavirus and accepting the CCP’s phony narrative of the pandemic.

And the Biden admin will probably cooperate on that, since they aren’t too worried about human rights

John Kerry echoes China’s argument that human rights sanctions threaten climate talks

Senior Chinese officials warned John Kerry that U.S. support for human rights threatens climate change cooperation, eliciting a pledge from President Joe Biden’s climate point-man to explain their perspective to officials in Washington.

“I will certainly pass on … the full nature of the message that I received from Chinese leaders,” former Secretary of State John Kerry, who is now Biden’s special envoy for climate change, told reporters following two days of meetings with top Chinese diplomats. “On the one hand, we’re saying to them, ‘You have to do more to help deal with the climate.’ And on the other hand, their solar panels are being sanctioned, which makes it harder for them to sell them.”

Those would be the solar panels that are being dumped on the market at below market price.

Kerry put a brave face on the friction. “We made some progress. That’s the bottom line,” he said told the Washington Post. “In diplomacy, you don’t always get everything you want in one fell swoop.”

Kerry and Biden got zip

(The GWPF) As for how to improve bilateral relations, Wang demanded that Kerry “pay attention to and pro-actively respond to China’s ‘two lists’ and ‘three bottom lines.’”

Wang was referring to the lists and three demands that Beijing handed to U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman in late July when she visited Tianjin. One of the lists asked the United States to correct its “wrongdoings,” including revoking its sanctions on CCP officials, which were announced by the United States in response to widely reported human rights abuses.

Among its demands, the CCP requires the United States not to “infringe” upon China’s “sovereignty” in the troubled regions of Xinjiang, Tibet, and Hong Kong. Many Western governments, including the United States, have called out the CCP for its human rights violations in these three regions, particularly over the detention of more than 1 million Uyghurs in Xinjiang.

Will Biden give in to the CCP? Time will tell. He slapped sanctions on China over their solar panels built with basically slave labor (funny how no media complaints when Biden is slapping sanctions on China, eh?). Will he remove them for a ‘climate change’ win? Well, a win on paper, since China will never actually do what it says on ‘climate change’.

    Kerry is surprised? Reality crashes in. I read a while back that Soros had a similar revelation. If you are not Han Chinese there is no place for you on the planet. Chicoms are preparing for a nuclear first strike. They have said so. The guy in the above picture told us bluntly that Chicoms are not afraid of us and are preparing a war. They believe with over a billion people they will survive any war, conventional or nuclear. Enjoy yourselves. It is later than you think. Have a nice day.
