Sec. Kerry to UN climate summit: ‘I’m not a Cassandra’ – Climate Depot Response: Oh Yes You Are! Kerry makes false climate statements

MARRAKECH, Morocco — Full Sec. Kerry Remarks

John Kerry – Secretary of State – Marrakech, Morocco – November 16, 2016

Sampling of False Kerry Climate Claims:

Kerry claim to UN: “The West Antarctic Ice Sheet is a sword of Damocles hanging over our entire way of life”

Reality Check: Media has been hyping Antarctic melt fears for over 100 years! – Recycle same melt fear claims in  2014, 1990, 1979, 1922 & 1901!


Kerry: ‘The East Antarctic Ice Sheet three miles deep. And if all that ice were somehow able to melt away completely because we are irresponsible about climate change…’

Reality Check: NASA Study: ‘Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise’ – ‘Mass Gains of Antarctic – Ice Sheet Greater than Losses’


Kerry: If Antarctica melts, ‘in the coming centuries, sea level would rise somewhere over 100 to 200 feet.’

Reality CheckFormer NASA Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer in 2016: “Sea level rise, which was occurring long before humans could be blamed, has not accelerated and still amounts to only 1 inch every 10 years.


Kerry: Recently “average of 22.5M people have been displaced by extreme weather events annually. We never saw that in the 20th Century

Reality Check: “Extreme weather is either on no trend or declining trends! 25 New Papers Confirm A Remarkably Stable Modern Climate: Fewer Intense Storms, Hurricanes, Droughts, Floods, Fires…


Kerry: “Storms that used to happen once every 500 yrs are becoming relatively normal”

misleading, and just plain incorrect, to claim that disasters associated with hurricanes, tornadoes, floods or droughts have increased on climate timescales either in the United States or globally’


Kerry: “The reason both [wind and solar] will continue is that the marketplace will dictate that, not the government”

Reality Check: Then why the hell do we need a UN treaty to centrally plan our energy supplies and economies if the marketplace will dictate?
