John Kerry Accepted Environmental Award In Iceland After Arriving In Private Jet

President Joe Biden’s newly appointed climate czar John Kerry reportedly took a private jet to Iceland in 2019 to receive the Arctic Circle award, Fox News reported.

Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, head of the Arctic Circle Roundtable, reportedly challenged Kerry on his use of a private jet to travel to Iceland in order to accept the award, Fox News reported.

“I understand that you came here with a private jet. Is that an environmental way to travel?” Grímsson asked Kerry, Fox News reported. Kerry explained it as a necessity for “somebody like me” and touted his career-long efforts in fighting climate change, citing the Paris Climate Agreement as an example.

“If you offset your carbon — it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,” Kerry told Grímsson, Fox News reported.  “And, I believe, the time it takes me to get somewhere, I can’t sail across the ocean. I have to fly, meet with people and get things done,” he added.

Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas called Kerry out in a tweet after the Fox News story broke, saying “this hypocrisy is remarkable.”
