According to Kerry, in comments to Bloomberg TV: "We have to put the industry on notice: You’ve got six years, eight years, no more than 10 years or so, within which you’ve got to come up with a means by which you’re going to capture [emissions], and if you’re not capturing, then we have to deploy alternative sources of energy." Kerry went on to state: “No one should make it easy for the gas interest to be building out 30- to 40-year infrastructure, which we’re then stuck with, and you know the fight will be ‘well we can’t close these because of the employment, because of the investors, et cetera.’”
So, should we only be building natural gas infrastructure with a life of 10-years or less? Lots of luck convincing people there is a financial case for such investments.
“We have to put the industry on notice: You’ve got six years, eight years, no more than 10 years or so, within which you’ve got to come up with a means by which you’re going to capture [emissions], and if you’re not capturing, then we have to deploy alternative sources of energy,” he told Bloomberg TV.
Kerry declared that he was only giving the gas industry “no more than ten years” to find a way to capture and eliminate carbon emissions or we’re going to “deploy alternative sources of energy.”
Ramaswamy: "That is not the free market in action. It's even worse than a monopoly or an ideological cartel. They're working hand in glove with the party in power to be able to do their bidding through the private sector. If you couldn't get the Green New Deal through Congress, guess what? John Kerry is doing? He's getting every major banking CEO to sign the so-called Climate Pledge...but it is also a form of crony capitalism because I will tell you, you know, as well as I, banks are not charitable institutions.
The question is what are they getting in return for signing that climate pledge. This is the crony capitalism of our moment, and I just think the way in which the critical race theory issue was in mobilizing issue for Republicans in 2021."

Morano: In terms of the substance of what Kerry said, It is very simple physics, science, engineering. When you go green and follow Green New Deal-style policies for a decade and more as Europe has done, you find yourself with massive dependency on hostile regimes like Russia, OPEC, Iran, China. ... The media is now bragging, if you will, that people aren't going to be able to afford steaks and hamburgers, you won't be able to travel in your SUV. Gee, all that sort of dovetails exactly with the climate agenda. You'd almost think that the climate activists and John Kerry and the Biden administration aren't that upset that Americans and Europeans are getting hammered with this situation right now. And you'd have to look at their history to find out they're really not upset. These are the intended consequences of green New Deal-style policies."
Kerry: "We’re already seeing climate refugees around the world," he said. "If you think migration has been a problem in Europe in the Syrian War or even from what we see now, wait until you see 100 million people for whom the entire food production capacity has collapsed."
"We are driven not by politics, not by ideology," he said. "We're driven by mathematics and physics, by science, which tells us, and has been for 35 years or more, what will happen if we don't do X, Y, and Z."
U.S. climate envoy John Kerry said on Monday that the crisis in Ukraine is going to be a "defining moment" for this century, saying the stakes "could not be higher," even if the world has to live with higher energy costs for a time. ... He did say, however, that it was not enough for companies to have a "net zero" goal for 2050, noting the detrimental effects of rising global temperatures are already evident. ... "You already see what's happening with global temperatures up 1.2 degrees (Celsius)... you're already seeing climate refugees," Kerry said. ...
Kerry acknowledged that "gas will be key component of energy transition, not unabated gas though" during the energy transition from fossil fuels to renewables, especially in African countries. Kerry warned that the energy markets would be turbulent for a while, "and we will have to live with it."

“The interesting thing about China is that you can go back decades, and United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres has praised China’s one-party rule for, essentially, getting things done, [Canadian Prime Minister] Justin Trudeau praised China’s one-party rule because it could get things done on investments in solar energy, and you have many other prominent figures in the climate movement who have used China as a model,” Morano said. ...
“It’s just bonkers from a strategic and national security point of view for Europe, Canada, and the United States to actually start shutting down our energy and then play by some ‘Green New Deal’ rules when OPEC, Iran, Russia, and China have zero intention of playing by the same rules,” Morano added.
The real significance of the Pandemic Treaty is that its passage is a ratification and approval of everything the world has experienced over the past two years during COVID-19. ... Terrified by this surge of deaths and the psychological terror campaigns deployed by governments on their own people, populations across the western world proceeded to impose an ever-darker swathe of illiberal mandates including forced masking and digital vaccine passes for everyday activities. Young children, who were at virtually no risk from the virus, lost years of primary education, and many were forced to wear masks for hours each day.
By signing onto the Pandemic Treaty, our leaders are signaling their approval for all this—and more—to be done again.
Throughout this “pandemic” we have been fed an unending series of lies, distortions and disinformation by the media, the public health officials, medical bureaucracies (CDC, FDA and WHO) and medical associations.
