Biden’s pompous Climate Envoy John Kerry is currently in Asia promoting the Biden Admin’s climate change agenda while his family jet-sets to their vacation estate in Idaho.
John Kerry’s family took a private jet from Boston, Massachusetts to their estate in Sun Valley, Idaho on Friday, flight records show.
According to a report by Fox News, John Kerry’s private jet emitted 166 metric tons of carbon over the past year – the same as 36 cars would in one year.
Meanwhile, John Kerry is in New Delhi, India lecturing the world on carbon emissions and telling everyone to make sacrifices to save the planet.
Joe Biden’s ‘Climate Envoy’ John Kerry violated CDC mandates by removing his mask almost immediately after boarding a first class flight from Boston to DC.
The former Secretary of State didn’t even wait until the plane took off before removing his face covering in violation of both American Airlines’ policy and a CDC mandate requiring masks on flights.
As the Tennessee Star highlighted, Kerry literally let the mask slip as he began to read a book.
“He was not eating, nor drinking. He was simply flaunting Biden’s mandatory mask policy,” tweeted reporter Neil W. McCabe.
Climate czar John Kerry said during an appearance on “CBS This Morning” that we have nine years left to avert a climate catastrophe and there’s “no room for B.S.” when it comes to climate change.
Kerry told CBS News’ Ben Tracey that, given the 2018 projection that we had 12 years left to avoid a climate disaster, three years later we now have nine years left. He also said that initial mandates put forth in the 2016 Paris Climate Accord will not be enough.
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.”
Data compiled by the flight tracking firm FlightAware and obtained by Fox News show that John Kerry’s family Gulfstream GIV-SP spent around 22 hours and 22 minutes in the air over the past year.
Using Paramount Business Jets emissions calculator, Fox News found that Kerry’s planed accumulated an estimated 116 metric tons of carbon between trips dating from Feb. 9, 2020, to Jan. 10, 2021.
For comparison, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that the typical passenger vehicle emits about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. That calculation assumed a car that drives around 11,500 miles per year with a fuel economy of about 22.0 miles per gallon.
