Secretary of State John Kerry (Sigh!) Tackles Climate Change by The Elephant's Child

John-Kerry-84pngSecretary of State John Kerry spoke yesterday at the opening session of the Climate and Clean Energy Investment Forum. He said:

There is no doubt in my mind that how we confront climate change will certainly be one of two of the defining issues of our generation and perhaps the defining issue of our generation because of the stakes — the other being the rise of radical extremism, sectarianism and the failure of states simultaneously surrounding it, and vast populations of young people needing jobs instead of mind-bending theories of false assumptions about Islam and other things.

Both are gigantic challenges. But thankfully, the solution to this particular challenge, climate change, is actually just as simple as the realization that it is the challenge that it is. … It is, put quite simply, energy policy—clean energy choices. …

So it’s becoming even more clear with every record-breaking drought, every record-breaking flood, every hottest month ever announcement, or every year – hottest year that we live through, with every peer-reviewed study that details the catastrophe that climate change could unleash and, frankly, that we’re seeing already in certain places. The canary in the gold mine – in the coal mine indicators, which are many in various parts of the world, particularly the Arctic, Antarctic, and in some other places – they all begin to detail the catastrophe that climate change has the potential to unleash.  …

Now, decades of science tell us that unless we make that transition, we are facing irreversible impacts to infrastructure, food production, water supply, sea level, ecosystems, and potentially to human life itself on this planet. And the wakeup call is not new. Year after year, the science has been screaming at us. And as time goes on, we are seeing the warning cries of climate change, frankly, rising all over the world. The past decade was the hottest on record; the one before that, the second-hottest on record; the one before that, the third-hottest on record. Nineteen of the 20 hottest years in history have occurred in the past two decades.

I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but that is a total load of leftist propaganda. There’s not a word of truth in his entire speech.

The Clean Power Plan is one of the most controversial mandates ever to be attempted. The issue of “Climate Change” is intended to destroy capitalism. The American power sector’s CO2 emissions are now at their lowest level since 1998. The Arctic and Antarctic sea ice melts in the summer and grows in the winter, and is growing more extensive rather than receding. The expected reductions in CO2 emissions from the Clean Power Plan would reduce global temperatures by about 0.03 degrees Celsius by 2100.

Theoretical physicist Freeman Dyson is now retired, but he was a professor of physics at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton — and one of the world’s great minds. “Climate change,” he says,” is not a scientific mystery but a human mystery. How does it happen that a whole generation of scientific experts is blind to obvious facts?”

I’m 100 per cent Democrat myself, and I like Obama. But he took the wrong side on this issue, and the Republicans took the right side,

What has happened in the past 10 years is that the discrepancies between what’s observed and what’s predicted have become much stronger,” he said. “It’s clear now the models are wrong, but it wasn’t so clear 10 years ago.

To any unprejudiced person reading this account, the facts should be obvious: that the non-climatic effects of carbon dioxide as a sustainer of wildlife and crop plants are enormously beneficial, that the possibly harmful climatic effects of carbon dioxide have been greatly exaggerated, and that the benefits clearly outweigh the possible damage.”

Nobel laureate Ivar Glaever also said that President Obama’s statements on global warming are”dead wrong.” “I think Obama is a clever person, but he gets bad advice. Global warming is all wet” he said in a speech to scientists from 90 countries on July 1 at the 85th annual Nobel Laureate Meeting in Lindau, Germany.

Kerry added “I mean, it’s incomprehensible that a grownup who has been to high school and college in the United States of America disqualifies themselves because they’re not a scientist when they’ve learned that the Earth rotates on its axis but they’re not a scientist, where they’ve learned that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west and it does so 24 hours a day, and you can run the list of things that we know science tells us happens, and we accept it every single day.”

That makes it pretty clear that John Kerry has never investigated the science of climate change at all, but just accepted Democrat talking points as gospel.
