High Flying John Kerry Says Coal Needs To Go, Ukraine War No Excuse

Well, it’s easy for John Kerry to say this: he’s rich, high energy prices do not effect him, and the taxpayers pay for quite a bit of his energy use, like the cost of jet fuel to fly to Bonn

Bonn climate conference: Ukraine war no excuse for prolonging coal, Kerry warns

John Kerry climateThe US envoy on climate change John Kerry has warned that the war in Ukraine must not be used as an excuse to prolong global reliance on coal.

Speaking to the BBC, Mr Kerry criticised a number of large countries for not living up to the promises they made at the COP26 climate summit.

Climate diplomats meet again today in Bonn amid new, energy security worries.

If countries extend their reliance on coal in response to the war, then “we are cooked,” Mr Kerry said.

The fragile unity shown in Glasgow last November is likely to be tested in Bonn as countries deal with the fallout from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the cost of living crisis.

Mr Kerry told the BBC that despite these drawbacks, “as a world we are still not moving fast enough,” to rein in the emissions of warming gases that are driving up temperatures.

Did the BBC reporter ask Kerry how he got to Bonn? How he’s traveling around in Bonn?

The talks will be carried out by civil servants with limited political input and will review progress on a host of issues agreed in the Glasgow Climate Pact,

I don’t remember electing them, or giving them the power to screw up the U.S. energy sector. Also, how’d these bureaucrats from around the world get there?

    IOW, Kerry is still either an idiot, because he doesn’t understand what he’s saying, or evil, because he DOES know what he’s saying.

    Can everyone see my “shocked” face?

    Telling me that I have to sacrifice my time, money and energy to HIS God…? Go pound sand, Kerry.

    Was that a coal-fired jet?

    I don’t remember electing them,

    One does not elect the aristocracy.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      America is not a democracy but a democratic republic. We elected President Biden who appointed Mr Kerry as the United States special presidential envoy for climate.

        Who is this “we” Rimjob keeps yapping about?
        Our form of government is a constitutional republic. Look it up and learn something, dumbass.

          I think he is schizophrenic and the “we” are all the demons in his head.

          But notice that both Jeff and John just can’t understand that humans have no control over the climate. Plus the stupid carbon credits do nothing.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          “We” are the greater than 81 million Americans who send DonJon packing, that’s who.

          It’s not surprising that nuCons want to destroy any vestigial democratic principles in America.

    Carbon offsets generally add about 2% to the cost of air travel. Teach sre you q00% positive that he doesn’t already do that?
    Also Kerry signed a pre nupt. His wife “owns” most of what you lied about.
    But hey who wants to tell the truth when lies make the story better!!

  5. JG says:

    Kerry is like the rest of the Elites in Government and Corporations: do as I say not as I do, or what we have planned for you peons mean nothing for us.

    This is why the US Government wants the American public to give up their weapons, before the SHTF and the US collapse and we go into CW2. So never give up your weapons.

  6. Hairy)2 says:

    Kerry is an item
    And like Trump inherited his wealth
    Although Kerry a pauper inherting less than 10% of the 400 million Trump got.
    Dems are always trying to pass that “death tax” . That tax would help to break the grip that it’s have on the USA
    Instead Trump gave the elites a 2 TRILION dollar permanent tax cut

    Make America Great Again. Tax the wealthy not tge Middle class

      Ya know Hairy, if you would talk like a fellow American who has empathy for his fellows and not keep throwing up campaign slogans and bumper stickers may someone would take you seriously. I guess by now it’s too late cause we all know you’re a petty tyrant passing himself off as a concerned citizen.

    Dear John-the wealthy are already taxed, to the tune of the 1% paying about 37-40% of all income taxes, while the bottom 50% pay almost no tax at all. In fact, the US has one of the most progressive tax systems in the free world. But you wouldn’t know these basic truths from the back of your box of Cheerios or listening to CNN

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Jill typed: the bottom 50% pay almost no tax at all

      Income taxes aren’t the whole story, are they? At the federal level, income taxes make up about 45% of U.S. income, and payroll taxes about 35%. Corporate income taxes add about 15%.

      Income taxes are progressive, that is, the more you make, the higher your tax rate.

      Payroll taxes apply to anyone earning wages, and the Social Security component is eliminated above $147,000 this year.

      In addition there are state and local taxes that everyone pays. Sales taxes are regressive, since the typical middle class family pays more of their income for goods. Most states have income taxes, some as a regressive flat tax.

      The bottom 50% pay in more ways than just taxes.
