John Kerry to declare emissions from everything except his private jets and mansions threats to national security
**Written by Doug Powers
Leading people to believe that terrorism (among other things) spawns as a result of carbon emissions just to scare them into supporting a climate
change disruption agenda in order to transfer trillions of dollars into the “proper” hands is dangerously irresponsible to say the least. But, if it’s absolutely wrong and hypocritical, there’s a good chance John Kerry will support it:
Secretary of State John Kerry plans to give a major speech on the connection between climate change and national security this summer.
In an interview with The New York Times, Kerry said the speech would also be an opportunity to build political support for President Obama’s climate agenda.
“We’re going to try to lay out to people legitimate options for action that are not bank-breaking or negative,” Kerry said.
A central part of that agenda are regulations to curb carbon emissions from new and existing coal-fired power plants.
Kerry spoke with the Times after the release Tuesday of a government-funded military research study, which found that the increasing rate of climate changes will serve as “catalysts for instability and conflict.”
The report Kerry will cite also says rising sea levels due to climate
change disruption will wreak havoc on coastlines. However, for some reason, that doesn’t seem to be deterring wealthy climate change disruption alarmists from avoiding making huge investments in beachfront property, which should be the cheapest real estate around by now.
In response to his dire warning, in order to help save lives, Kerry is also expected to announce that he’s going to get rid of all of the following and move with his wife into a one-bedroom eco-friendly efficiency apartment in Boston:
In winter, he goes helicopter skiing while staying at his wife’s Idaho retreat, a 15th-century farmhouse transported from England and reassembled on the banks of the Big Wood River in Sun Valley. In summer, he windsurfs and sails off the coast of Nantucket, where she has another home. The couple have an 18th-century town house in Boston where the kitchen is two stories high. There is a 23-room town house in Washington, an 88-acre Pittsburgh area estate, a private Gulfstream jet and a personal staff of six, including caretakers and a cook.
Wait, correction, Kerry is not expected to announce he’s getting rid of that stuff.
