High-flying, mansion-loving ‘climate change’ alarmist John Kerry draws a red line on new farmland in Africa

The U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in DC had its moments, but perhaps none was more idiotic than John Kerry’s “contribution” to ending starvation and malnutrition in Africa.

Kerry said Africa’s leaders need to to halt the development of new farmland if they’re going to combat the global warming that will, according to Lurch, worsen the hunger problem.

Un-flippin-believable:

During the Africa Summit “Resilience and Food Security in a Changing Climate” panel, Secretary of State John Kerry told an audience that “8,000 children die every day” and in sub-Sahara Africa, one in four suffer from chronic hunger.

Then a few minutes later, he stressed how creating new farms would cause too much carbon pollution so they need to discourage more farm land.

Yeah, he really did say that (video h/t TPNN):

In the U.S., Kerry and his wife selflessly do their best to keep as much area as possible from being turned into farmland:

In winter, he [Kerry] 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.

Possible solution for Africa? As part of the Obama administration’s new push for investment there, Kerry could create an initiative to convince rich American liberals to buy up would-be farmland on the continent to use for mansions and polo grounds in order to protect the region from the eco-threat of farms.

Instead of farming for food, the U.S. secretary of state suggested that Africa try the sturgeon caviar at Topper’s on Nantucket. “It’s exquisite” according to Kerry
