Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry indicated his desire for the Biden administration to keep him on in some official role, whatever that may be for the foreseeable future.
Kerry vowed to keep up his public climate advocacy until his “last breath” amid his pushing for all kinds of regulations at the UN COP28 climate summit. It’s the third summit he has attended as Biden’s climate czar. The event is one of dozens Kerry has gone to since early 2021.
“As long as this is a crisis, I will be organizing and speaking and active in dealing with this challenge,” Kerry vowed during an interview with Politico Europe last week.
“Maybe in one role or another,” he answered when he was asked about continuing his work with the Biden administration. “I intend to be a citizen until my last breath. And by that, I mean there are obligations of citizenship, obligations of responsibility, and of speaking out and fighting for values. So, I think one should never turn one’s back on that public obligation.”

COP28 is winding down this week in Dubai. The result of the climate confab is ostensibly a new international agreement pushing more aggressive, controlling commitments from nations over climate change. Kerry has led a U.S. delegation that proposed several new initiatives according to Fox News.
“For example, the U.S. finalized regulations targeting methane emissions of the oil and gas sector and vowed to shutter all remaining coal-fired power plants,” the news outlet reported.
“It’s safe to say that there literally will be hundreds of initiatives that will be announced, many of them coming from the United States, but also many coming from other parts of the world, and I think it’s going to be a very exciting presentation of a global effort that is taking place, even though it’s not happening fast enough or big enough yet,” Kerry predicted at a press conference before COP28 kicked off.
“What is very clear to us – and we will be pushing this the next two weeks that we are here negotiating – we have to move faster,” the leftist asserted. “We have to be much more seized of this issue all around the planet. There’s too much business as usual still.”

Kerry made clear his professed obsession with combating global warming to Politico Europe. We have to do something or we are all doomed evidently.
“The bottom line is that we have to do things because it’s a crisis and life itself is at stake,” he railed. “There are serious challenges right now.”
The climate alarmist, in his role as special presidential envoy for climate, globe trots across the planet via jets, using proffered diplomacy to push countries to dump fossil fuels in favor of green energy alternatives.

“He has also received criticism for his use of a private jet owned by his family. According to flight tracking data obtained by Fox News Digital in July 2022, a Gulfstream GIV-SP jet owned by Kerry’s family made a total of 48 trips that lasted more than 60 hours and emitted an estimated 715,886 pounds, or 325 metric tons, of carbon over the course of the Biden administration’s first 18 months,” Fox News wrote.
“However, one month after the Fox News Digital report that highlighted the jet’s extensive carbon footprint, and after lawmakers blasted Kerry for apparent hypocrisy, the Gulfstream jet was sold to an energy-focused hedge fund in New York City. Whitney Smith, a State Department spokesperson, confirmed the sale in a statement earlier this year and said Kerry travels commercially in his current role,” the news outlet pointed out.

Kerry’s confabbing with the communist Chinese has also come under congressional scrutiny concerning national security and the U.S. economy. He has led the charge, declaring that the US must get rid of all coal plants while the Chinese are producing new ones at a record-breaking pace according to Reuters.
