(FiveNation.com)- President Joe Biden’s climate czar and former secretary of state under the Obama administration, John Kerry, has not been off our screens lately talking about the damage the White House plans to inflict on the United States in the name of battling climate change.
But a commentary piece published Chris Talgo at The Epoch Times reveals Kerry’s hypocritical past.
Talgo references a claim by President Joe Biden that Kerry has been “deeply involved” in the signing of new executive orders that canceled the Keystone XL Pipeline (and cost tens of thousands of jobs) and re-entered the United States into the Paris Climate Accord.
“The secretary has been deeply involved in climate issues as a senator and one of the leaders, legislatively, as well,” Biden said. “And I don’t think anybody knows more about the issue and the damage that’s been done by some of the executive orders of the previous administration.
Let’s not forget that under the Trump administration, electric vehicles became more popular than ever and green technology alternatives continued development despite withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord…
Nonetheless, Talgo picked apart Kerry’s hypocritical past and asked why somebody with such a huge carbon footprint is lecturing the rest of the country on the climate.
“However, putting aside the global warming debate, Kerry’s lifestyle is not in-line whatsoever with his words about the existential threat posed by climate change,” he said. “And actions speak louder than words when it comes to climate change, or so we have been told.”
Talgo called Kerry the “Paul Revere of climate change” and described how he owns a $12 million mansion near Martha’s Vineyard, as well as several other homes.
“Kerry’s home also emits far greater carbon dioxide than most Americans’ homes,” he added. Which a home of that size absolutely does.
And beyond the home, Kerry reportedly owns multiple yachts and cars, and has owned a Gulfstream private jet since 2005.
“Meaning that for the past 16 years he has been trekking around the globe spewing untold amounts of carbon dioxide,” Talgo said.
Kerry was asked about his use of private jets in Iceland recently, after he travelled to the country to accept his climate award.
“It’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,” he said.

Kerry also attempted to distract the interviewer, explaining that he can’t sail the Atlantic.
…but maybe he could fly economy. Or use Zoom and Skype, like everybody else.
Is John Kerry the biggest hypocrite in the Biden administration?
