Now I don’t think that CO2 is the biggest threat to mankind since the Y2K virus, but when your whole agenda is crying that CO2 is about to destroy the planet, then maybe you should try teleconferencing for a change.
It’s not like any known country on earth has actually ever said, “We wish that John Kerry would awkwardly drop by for a visit and spend hours talking about his boat while comparing everything in our country to Vietnam.”
Secretary of State John Kerry spent his weekend discussing climate change in Indonesia:
“We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and science and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific facts,” Kerry told the audience gathered at a U.S. Embassy-run American Center in a Jakarta shopping mall. “Nor should we allow any room for those who think that the costs associated with doing the right thing outweigh the benefits.”
This is part of a six-day Kerry trip through Seoul, South Korea; Beijing, China; Jakarta; Indonesia; Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, then back to Washington.
In case you’re wondering, flying first class from Washington to Seoul to Beijing to Jakarta to Abu Dhabi and then back to Washington runs up roughly 12.16 metric tons of carbon dioxide, according to CarbonFootprint.com, which uses data from the EPA and Department of Energy.
Pay no attention to those bad apple shoddy scientists. John Kerry PhD knows best. Kerry makes his own science. In KerryScience (TM), carbon is only emitted by conservatives, never by liberals.
