In an interview with the BBC released on Wednesday, prior to Russia’s attack on Ukraine, U.S. climate czar John Kerry demonstrated that what he really cares about regarding a war in Ukraine is that it would have “massive emissions consequences” and divert attention from climate change.
Kerry, whose silly job title is “Special Presidential Envoy for Climate,” said, “I’m concerned about Ukraine, because of the people of Ukraine and because of the principles that are at risk, in terms of international law and trying to change boundaries of international law by force. I thought we lived in a world that had said no to that kind of activity. And I hope diplomacy will win.”
Diplomacy won’t win, because our enemies don’t fear or respect the United States under the Biden administration.
Kerry fretted, “I think, hopefully, President Putin would realize that, in the northern part of his country, they used to live on 66% of a nation that was over frozen land. Now, it’s thawing and his infrastructure is at risk, and the people of Russia are at risk. And so, I hope President Putin will help us to stay on track with respect to what we need to do for the climate.”
Putin doesn’t give a fig about the climate or Kerry’s “green” fantasy vision for the future. Putin cares about making Russia the world’s number one power, while Biden and his Party wage war on chimeric threats like climate change and white supremacy.
