John Kerry Takes A Private Jet ... To Accept An Award On Climate Change

When President Slow Joe named John Kerry as his “Climate Czar,” we all laughed.  Kerry has been among the biggest offenders when it comes to his own carbon footprint, as he continues to live the life of luxury under his old lady’s massive condiment empire.  To get an idea about Lurch’s life of luxury, read this piece from Nick Arama, which covers all of his rich-dude goodies.


Today, Fox News reported that Kerry was in Iceland in 2019 to accept an award for “climate leadership.”

From Fox News:

“Kerry defended his high-pollution ride at the time, calling it “the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle” in an interview obtained by Fox News. The incident had not been previously reported in the American press.

Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, who led the Arctic Circle Roundtable, criticized Kerry for traveling to the event via private jet, Icelandic outlet RUV reported.

Kerry received the award, which took the form of an iceberg sculpture, for being “a consistent voice pressuring the American authorities to commit to tackle environmental matters,” the outlet noted.

Icelandic reporter Jóhann Bjarni Kolbeinsson confronted Kerry at the event over his choice of transportation, asking: “I understand that you came here with a private jet. Is that an environmental way to travel?”

Kerry responded by claiming that it was the only way.  “If you offset your carbon — it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,” Kerry said.”

So in other words, Kerry was saying that as long as he can continue to buy carbon indulgences at the Altar of Climate Change Radicals, he can continue to sin as he sees fit.  Instead of us “all doing our part” which seems an integral part of the discussion, what Kerry is saying is, “you do your part AND my part, so I can continue to live however I damn well please.”  Again, climate credits are essentially companies and people who reduce their carbon footprints below the current set goal amounts or perform some sort of act of conservation and then sell that difference or reward to others who did not meet their carbon goals.  However, if the goal is the reduction of carbon by essentially any means necessary, why wouldn’t you save the carbon through the measures by both the creditor and the organization which is buying the credit?  It is a total scam.
