John Kerry again admits climate futility: If U.S. & China ‘could go to zero (CO2 emissions) tomorrow… the world would still have a problem’
John Kerry in Washington Post interview: "The challenge is this: The United States could go to zero tomorrow. I mean we can't, but if you, figuratively speaking could go to zero. We'd still have a problem, the world would still have a problem. If China went to zero tomorrow with the United States, we'd still have a problem."
Flashback: Kerry admits zero emissions in US wouldn’t make difference in climate change
Flashback 2015: Then Sec. of State John Kerry explains climate futility: If U.S. zeroed out CO2 emissions, it ‘still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world’
Kerry admits zero emissions in US wouldn’t make difference in climate change – New York Post: Kerry’s remarks were made ahead of Biden’s signing of a host of executive actions on Wednesday pushing his $2 trillion Green New Deal-inspired climate agenda. “He knows Paris alone is not enough,” Kerry told reporters at a White House press briefing, referring to Biden re-entering the US in the Paris Climate Agreement in one of his first acts as president.
“Not when almost 90 percent of all of the planet’s global emissions come from outside of US borders. We could go to zero tomorrow and the problem isn’t solved,” Kerry conceded.
Flashback 2015: Then Sec. of State John Kerry explains climate futility: If U.S. zeroed out CO2 emissions, it ‘still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world’ – John Kerry in 2015: “The fact is that even if every American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what – that still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world.
If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions –- remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions -– it wouldn’t be enough, not when more than 65% of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world.”
John Kerry falsely claims: It’s ‘cheaper to deal with the crisis of climate than it is to ignore it’ – Reality check: There is no ‘crisis’ & ‘solutions’ would have no impact – Morano: “Would anyone purchase fire insurance on their home that had a huge upfront premium for virtually no payout if your home burned down? If you answered YES to such an ‘insurance’ policy, then Congress, the EPA, and the UN have a deal for you with their ‘climate’ regulations. The sponsors of the Green New Deal ought to be able to show that its benefits outweigh its costs—or at least that it has benefits! How much does the proposed new deal allegedly reduce temperature and storminess? Zero!
If we actually did face a man-made climate crisis and we had to rely on the U.S. Congress or the United Nations to save us, we would all be DOOMED.”
