Remarks reminiscent of condescending, tone-deaf, “You’ve Got a Friend” moment in France during 2015 visit.
The competition for the most buffoonish Biden administration official heated up considerably as Biden Climate Envoy John Kerry said countries should respond to the war in Ukraine by accelerating the shift to green energy and moving to “deweaponize” energy.
“The lesson is that we have to move faster to deweaponise energy anywhere in the world. It’s not the first time it’s been used as a weapon,” he told delegates at a climate event hosted by the City of London.
Battles involving fuel sources are not likely to end just because elite bureaucrats wish they would. During conflicts, fights over resources have occurred since the first prehistoric war along the Nile River near the Egypt-Sudan border over 13,000 years ago.
However, Kerry has long been tone-deaf and oblivious to the signs of the times. Recall the time that, when he was Secretary of State, Kerry tried to do damage control after Barack Obama’s government had been criticized for not sending any high-profile officials to attend the Charlie Hebdo rally.
Kerry then had James Taylor Sing “You’ve Got a Friend.”
“I wanted to tell you personally of the horror, the revulsion all Americans felt at that cowardly and despicable act against innocent victims and fundamental values,” Kerry said.
He then went on to explain that he couldn’t make it on Sunday because of a prearranged trip to India.
And then he had James Taylor sing You’ve Got a Friend.
To be fair, Kerry wasn’t the only clueless official at the City of London climate event. They continue to crunch numbers and push agendas, despite the fact people are suffering from fuel shortages and food scarcity.
Speaking to delegates at a City of London Corporation conference, U.N. climate envoy Mark Carney urged governments, companies and the finance sector to not let the conflict, which Moscow terms a ‘special operation’, hold back the global effort.
“We know the climate doesn’t care why emissions happen, only how much occur. The more we emit now, the more radical action will be needed later. We need to speed up, not slow down.”
“Fundamentally, there is no energy security without sustainability,” added Carney, who chairs the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero, an umbrella grouping of banks, insurers, asset managers and others in the finance sector pledging to help meet the climate goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.
Kerry’s statements are on-brand for the Biden administration: leftist dogma rolled out as “science” and devoid of any serious calculation on their actual impact on Americans (or Ukrainians…or anyone else).DONATE
