Chinese Leaders Cool Toward John Kerry’s Attempt to Persuade China to Join Climate Cult

Chinese Leaders Cool Toward John Kerry’s Attempt to Persuade China to Join Climate Cult

The reception toward Kerry by China’s leaders may have been so cold that it lowered global temperatures…at least briefly.

The United States’ leading climate cultist, former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, has been in China for the past three days in an attempt to persuade Chinese leaders to agree to economy-crushing plans based on pseudoscience.

It seems the Chinese leaders were cool toward his attempts to get them to join the cult.

Special Presidential Envoy for Climate (SPEC) John Kerry announced during a press conference in China on Wednesday that his visit to the nation failed to yield any significant climate agreement.

Kerry told reporters that, while he and his Chinese counterparts engaged in “frank” discussions about fighting global warming, they couldn’t solidify any formal agreement. He added that the U.S. and China — the world’s two largest polluters — will need additional time to hash out a climate deal between the nations.

“We came to Beijing in order to unstick what has been stuck for almost a year, and that’s the in-person dialogue between the United States and China,” Kerry said, E&E News reported.

“We had very frank conversations, but we came here to break new ground, which we think is important at this stage, and it is clear that we are going to need a little more work to be able to complete that task, which we still believe, both of us, is doable,” he continued.

Perhaps the Chinese leaders noted that Kerry was not exactly practicing what he preached in terms of his regular use of a private jet to head to all the climate change conferences. Interestingly, the coverage on this topic has been so intense that Kerry was reported to have flown commercially to China for his meetings this week.

Kerry’s trip comes after he was heavily criticized for his use of a private jet during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing last week, where some Republican lawmakers accused the climate envoy of hypocrisy.

A State Department spokesperson told Fox News Digital that Kerry “flew commercially to Beijing” on a “common commercial air flight” but his office has yet to respond to follow-up questions on specifics, including any potential airline.

While there, Kerry didn’t even get the opportunity to meet with the Chinese President, who made recently made a point of announcing he had no attention to having China participate in eco-activist shenanigans.

Mr. Kerry didn’t get a sit-down with Xi Jinping, but the Chinese President addressed his country’s environmental policies in a speech this week. Under the nonbinding 2015 Paris climate agreement, Beijing said its emissions would peak by 2030, and Mr. Xi reaffirmed his commitment to that target in his remarks.

But that’s another way of saying Beijing intends to keep increasing its carbon emissions for another seven years. From 2015 to 2022 China’s greenhouse gas emissions grew nearly 12%, while the U.S. cut them by some 5%, according to the Climate Action Tracker.

Mr. Xi also said “the pathway and means” and “the tempo and intensity” for reaching China’s climate goals “should and must be determined by ourselves, and never under the sway of others,” according to an account in the state-run People’s Daily.

Part of the reason for China’s lack of enthusiasm for participating in climate deals may be that its economy is faltering.

China’s economy grew at a frail pace in the second quarter as demand weakened at home and abroad, with the post-COVID momentum faltering rapidly and raising pressure on policymakers to deliver more stimulus to shore up activity.

Chinese authorities face a daunting task in trying to keep the economic recovery on track and putting a lid on unemployment, as any aggressive stimulus could fuel debt risks and structural distortions.

…”The data suggests that China’s post-COVID boom is clearly over,” said Carol Kong, economist at Commonwealth Bank of Australia in Sydney.

“The higher-frequency indicators are up from May’s numbers, but still paint a picture of a bleak and faltering recovery and at the same time youth unemployment is hitting record highs.”

Given all this information, I would imagine the reception toward Kerry by China’s leaders was so cold that it lowered global temperatures…at least briefly.

color me surprised and stick me on the wall.

Always was and remains, a LOSER.

I’m shocked. Shocked I tell you.

But seriously, why would the Chicoms participate in the self-destructive farce that their enemies insist upon inflicting on themselves?

They will just smile their inscrutable smiles and patiently wait for the victory which costs them nothing.

China is perfectly willing to control natural resources (lithium, cobalt, etc.) necessary for the Climate Cult’s sacred electric cars and manufacture future electronic waste like solar panels so long as the CCP doesn’t have to make any real commitments to limit use of fossil fuels.

It’s to the CCP’s advantage to have the West compromise its own survival by banning natural gas, internal combustion engines, and coal burning power plants AND nuclear power while voluntarily become dependent on China.

Oh, but China’s economy is in trouble. Well, if you can’t grow your way of an economic crisis, hamstring your competitors to take away their advantage. It’s not as if the CCP, when faced with an epidemic, would spread the disease around the world while vacuuming up the worlds supplies of PPE before word fully got out–while diplomatically protesting any attempts to restrict their disease exposed citizens from travelling around the world.

    Correct. The CCP is the modern day plantation upon which blacks are subject to being slaves. Look at any climate cultist mandate, which is built upon cheap black labor mainly in African countries, hand digging minerals for China’s ability to manufacture cellular phones, EV batteries, solar batteries, and other components.

    I will be a willing participant contributing to the cooling if he planet as soon as Kerry, virtually all of Hollywood, every single leader of every nation on this planet, and all the Karen/Ken eco fascists give up their airplanes, boats, mansions, SUVs, limousines, and their carefree Fûck all lifestyle.

    I have been living this nonsense for more than 60 years of “if we don’t do something the world will end in ten years.” Of course, those 69 years have gone from GLOBAL COOLING, to GLOBAL WARMING, to CLIMATE CHANGE, to Lord knows what else.

He’s a zero and always has been.

“Kerry told reporters that, while he and his Chinese counterparts engaged in “frank” discussions about fighting global warming, they couldn’t solidify any formal agreement.”

The definition of “frank” talk is Lurch scolding the Chinese about their being the number one polluter along side India, and the Chinese leaders sitting across from him thinking that he’s a fool.

Similar to the fool British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain thinking that the Munich Agreement would bring “peace in our time,” Kerry believes that his presence means anything to China.

Why don’t we just open the borders of America to the CCP for them to conquer us, and just get it over with?

The US is the only country in the world that will kiss the ass of dictators and the media just so we are looked upon on the world stage as being “good.”

Every other country has their best interests at heart. Ours? We pay those who hate us, and then they stab us in the back when we turn our back.

    I strongly suspect Kerry doesn’t have the cojones to ‘scold’ the Chicoms about anything. Especially when they appear to own his boss.

    I see him grovelling and whining for them to do anything concrete at all so he can carry their good news to the world and being told to try the Beijing Duck.

      But by scold, I was thinking more along the lines of Greta Thunberg, and a mealy mouthed “How dare you?”

John Kerry goes to China to negotiate with communists. I have trouble getting past that.

    Donald Trump goes to North Korea to negotiate with communists. I have trouble getting past that.

      Ironclaw in reply to JR. | July 20, 2023 at 1:36 pm

      The difference is, the North Koreans didn’t tell Trump to go f*** himself and they stopped their missile testing. The Chinese simply told Lurch to go f*** himself.

        The difference is, the North Koreans didn’t tell Trump to go f*** himself and they stopped their missile testing.
        Dude, do you even own a cell phone, have access to the Internet, or are even able to read? North Korea is INCREASING their missile testing. Good lord, what is happening to the IQ of some commentators here at LI.

          AF_Chief_Master_Sgt in reply to JR. | July 20, 2023 at 4:50 pm

          The most idiotic of LI commentators will still have an IQ superior to yours.

          Please feel free to pull your head out of Joe Biden’s ass. Your eyes are turning brown.

          Korea started their nonsense once Biden was “selected.”

“Climate Change” is a first world problem…

The Chicomms aren’t stupid enough to crater their own economy or military readiness. They are, however, quite happy to watch us do so.

John Kerry is a moron.

The Global Times undermined Kerry’s impact before he held a meeting on Monday with China’s top environmental official, Xie Zhenhua, intended to expand discussions of what the two countries can do together to cut carbon emissions. China has formally vowed to increase its carbon emissions as an “obligation” in the Paris Climate Agreement, which Biden formally rejoined upon becoming president. His predecessor, former President Donald Trump, walked out of the Paris Agreement on the grounds that it was hostile to American enterprise and unfairly distributed climate responsibilities among its signatories.

The climate cult members don’t believe their own BS, their actions within the their own life choices, which is totally under their control, demonstrate this time and again. Instead they want everyone else to be forced to adopt the lifestyle and lower standard of living which they refuse to adopt for themselves.

    “…they want everyone else to be forced to adopt the lifestyle and lower standard of living which they refuse to adopt for themselves.”

    Exactly. Like tyrants everywhere, throughout time.

    This is about totalitarian control over society. Nothing more, nothing less.

Kerry looks embalmed.

The Chinese leadership ain’t stupid. Basically, they told old Lurch to go f*** himself

E Howard Hunt | July 20, 2023 at 4:06 pm

Those Chinese better be careful. If they don’t comply, he will bring Greta on his next visit and have her ask them “how dare they.”
