    Default John Kerry, Biden’s ‘Climate Czar’, Admits U.S. CO2 Emission Cuts are Pointless

    .
    Hardly news to anybody sentient which of course rules out the most of the Left on JPP.

    Caught on video: John Kerry admitted U.S. CO2 emissions cuts are pointless at Joe Biden’s Leaders Summit on Climate where they say:

    “Confronting the climate crisis requires unprecedented global cooperation, as well as a shared sense of urgency and ambition. President Biden convened the virtual Leaders Summit on Climate to ensure close coordination on addressing the climate crisis with key players in the international community at the highest levels of government. We can solve this crisis—but only if we work together.”

    But “special Presidential Envoy for Climate“, John Kerry aka, Biden’s Climate Czar, provided a sobering moment during an interview where the curtain was pulled back and reality emerged. Watch the video clip:

    Kerry said:

    “…getting to net zero [carbon dioxide emissions] is gonna be hard, really hard…that will depend on breakthrough technologies and breakthrough innovations. But even if we get to net zero, we still have to get carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.”

    He’s saying essentially that cuts won’t matter, but technology and innovation will. He also seems to erroneously think “net zero” applies to getting ALL of the carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, which will end all plant life on Earth if it happened.

    He also said essentially the same thing about emission cuts back in 2015 in this video.

    “The fact is that even if every single American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes – if we each planted a dozen trees – if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions – guess what? That still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world. If all the industrialized nations went down to zero emissions – remember what I just said – all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions, it wouldn’t be enough – not when more than 65 percent of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world.”



    Meanwhile, China and other countries pay lip service to carbon dioxide emission reductions, as seen in Figure 1 below.

    He’s saying essentially that cuts won’t matter
    He ' admits ' no such thing- and he 'essentially says ' nothing of the sort, maggot.
    Who do you think gets taken in by your wormtongue deceits ?

    It's plain to any reasoning person that no one country is responsible for anthropogenic climate disruption - and that's what the hypocritical drone is saying.
    I say ' hypocritical drone ' because Kerry refuses to condemn the Japanese for dumping millions of tonnes of your radioactive waste into the world's marine environment. If you're going to be an eco warrior you can't dance with the enemy.

    A good idea is to try and figure a way to skim off excess atmosphere and send it off into space. Venus would be pretty easy to terraform after figuring how to save ourselves here. Venus could be adequately hospitable if we could reduce the atmosphearic mass on it. On the other hand, its so dense it'd be a mighty fancy place for blimp motels

    Except in this instance the ‘trash’ is literally plant food.

    Grass and trees do a wonderful job of that lol.

    I’m reading Crichton’s State of Fear. A novel about climate change and in it he weaves a lot of the criticisms of climate change throughout. It’s a page turner too.

    It’s not very good, poorly written compared to some of his other books. The characters are flat.

    State of Fear was published in 2004, almost a generation ago, and Michael Crichton died in 2008.

    The state of our knowlege of climate science has advanced far beyond where it was in 2003 when Crichton was writing that book
