According to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, former Senator John Kerry is the newly hired climate czar who will fight against climate change.
“It’s the perfect role for John Kerry,” said Carlson. “John Kerry has devoted his entire life to taking on global warming by contributing as much to global warming as he possibly can.”
Carlson cited examples of such “contributions,” naming the former senator’s private jet as one of many. Kerry’s private jet has spent at least 20 hours in the air, which means that he has been the cause for more than a hundred metric tons of carbon emissions, much more than the average person will ever be responsible for.
“John Kerry is the kind of leader who leads by negative examples,” Carlson continued. “In 2019, the world finally recognized John Kerry’s sacrifice — his enduring commitment to doing precisely what he wants, or preventing you from doing the same.”
In 2019, John Kerry was given the Arctic Circle Award to recognize his efforts to “tackle environmental matters.” To accept the award, he flew all the way to Iceland in his private jet, which is three thousand miles away.
He has repeatedly made it clear that people who do what he did make him very angry. Carlson added: “‘To fight climate change,’ John Kerry said, ‘we need to do exactly the opposite of what John Kerry himself is doing at the moment.’”
“People are dying around the world because of climate change. I see it in my country. Floods in mid-part of our country that wiped out farms, fires even now in California, mudslides that swallowed up whole homes and people,” Kerry said during his acceptance speech in 2019. “I get angry when I look at what public responsibility is supposed to be, and I don’t see people doing it.”
In 2019, a reporter had asked the former senator why he flew all the way to Iceland on a private plane. “Isn’t that a little hypocritical?” he had asked.
At the time, Carlson says, John Kerry’s response was buried. But now, they have it, and here it is: “It’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle. I believe the time it takes me to get somewhere—I can’t sail across the ocean. I have to fly to meet with people and get things done.”
It’s the only choice for someone like him, but you’re not allowed to make that choice unless you’re one of the people in charge. Otherwise, you’re just insignificant.
