John Kerry might need to cut back on his own emissions.
The Biden Administration’s climate envoy was discussing US policy on coal power plants at the Climate Change Conference in Dubai on Sunday when Kerry may have unleashed a burst of wind energy.
The former secretary of state was speaking next to Becky Anderson, Managing Editor of CNN Abu Dhabi, and Fatih Birol, Executive director of the International Energy Agency, when a Bronx cheer suddenly erupted midsentence.
“There shouldn’t be any more coal-fired power plants permitted anywhere in the world,” Kerry began before launching into an anti-coal diatribe.
“I find myself getting more and more militant because I do not understand how adults who are in a position of responsibility can be avoiding responsibility for taking away those things that are killing people on a daily basis…”
Before Kerry can complete his thought, the crude sound of passing gas can be heard over the microphone. The crowd breaks into applause, apparently oblivious to the crude theatrics.
CNN’s Anderson — sitting to Kerry’s right and within striking distance of a potential bodily function — quickly jerks her head aside and inconspicuously places her hand to her mouth, possibly in the event of any stench permeating the climate panel.
Birol, the energy executive, simply nods his head and shuffles his eyes in rapt contemplation.
“And the reality is that the climate crisis and the health crisis are one and the same,” Kerry continued, unabated.
Larry O’Connor of Townhall Media said Kerry’s alleged flatulence was an embarrassment to the US.
“The biggest problem is, during this entire exchange, representing us, The United States of America, he ripped a fart out,” O’Connor said. “He let loose with flatulence on an international stage.”
