Former Secretary of State John Kerry was on Capitol Hill Tuesday morning testifying in front of the House Oversight Committee about the “threat” of climate change.
He presented the typical fear mongering argument about the world ending if we don’t do “something” to stop it and advocated for massive government intervention to “fix” the problem.
But during an exchange with Republican Congressman Thomas Massie, Kerry got tripped up on the facts about how much CO2 is really detrimental to the environment.
Notice how Kerry attempted to end the conversation by saying wasn’t “serious.” Massie simply pointed out CO2 levels were much higher before humans made their way onto the planet. A serious, relevant, historical scientific fact.
Then, Massie went after Kerry’s credentails on the issue.
The Green New Deal, which bans air travel, cows and requires the uprooting and remodeling of every building in America, has broad support on the left in Congress and on the 2020 presidential campaign trail. Massie warned about the consequences of rapidly changing the economy through government force, which is what the Green New Deal would require.
