Climate Czar John Kerry’s Jet Has Emitted 300 Metric Tons Of Carbon In Less Than Two Years
Will leftist elites ever practice the sacrifices they dream to force upon the masses? Biden climate czar John Kerry sure does not seem to think so — the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate owns a private jet that emitted over 300 metric tons of carbon dioxide, according to federal data.
Kerry’s jet, a Gulfstream GIV-SP, has made 48 trips that last more than 60 hours. Escapades made possible by the plane emitted an estimated 715,886 pounds, or 325 metric tons, of carbon since Joe Biden began occupying the White House, according to Fox News. The plane belongs to Flying Squirrel LLC., a charter company in which Kerry owns a financial stake of at least $1 million.
This is not Kerry’s first time breaking rules that he wishes to impose upon others. A previous report at BLP showed the climate envoy flaunting a mask mandate during a commercial flight as other Americans were being thrown off flights and threatened with federal prison for doing the same things.
Fox asked Kerry’s office if he was planning on using a private jet for his transportation to a UN climate summit in Berlin, Germany. The conference, called the Petersberg Climate Dialogue, will feature representatives from 40 countries who plan to negotiate emissions reductions around the globe and so-called ‘climate financing’ for third-world countries.
“No,” a Kerry spokesperson said in an email to Fox when asked if Kerry would engage in such hypocritical behavior given his publicly stated aversion towards carbon emissions.
“Secretary Kerry travels commercially or via military air in his role as Special Presidential Envoy for Climate,” the spokesperson added.
The White House climate czar has expressed pride in his role serving as an adviser for the Biden administration. He proudly posted that Americans “will soon have a government that treats the climate crisis as the urgent national security threat it is,” upon Biden’s initial announcement that Kerry would be the climate envoy.
Kerry is very much against existing sources of American energy — he argued in January that the United States must start shutting down existing power plants rather than building more.
“The problem with folks like John Kerry and the climate hypocrites who run the green movement is that they want to use the coercive power of government,” Executive Director of Power The Future Daniel Turner explained to Fox during an interview. “They want to use it internationally with groups like the UN, etc. They want to use the power of government to deny the rest of us the ability to use those fossil fuels that they take for granted.”
“They refuse to voluntarily live how they want the rest of us to be forced to live,” he continued. “It doesn’t just make them hypocrites, it makes them, quite frankly, a threat to the rights and freedoms of people around the world. When John Kerry voluntarily lives the way he wants the rest of us to be compelled to live, then we can talk about his climate goals.”
Turner told Fox that he dislikes Kerry’s tendency to take full advantage of fossil fuels while advocating for the average American to have no such ability.
“At what point will John Kerry and all of the world leaders who care about climate change ever jump on a Zoom call?” Turner asked.
