For some time, the political left has made a big deal of global warming or what is now being called climate change. And for just as long, it’s been questioned as a complete scam to control more of the economy and get those in charge more power.
And it’s easy to see why – especially when one of its biggest advocates is New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I mean, this is a woman who just declared the Southern states finally liberated… And who also said that the world would end in 12 years unless we ban fossil fuels.
But AOC still doesn’t seem to have a problem with traveling around the nation in an airplane fueled by fossil fuels or being driven nearly everywhere in gas-run vehicles when she could walk.
Now, one might choose to believe that All Out Crazy, as she is occasionally referred to, is just that and that her thoughts on the climate and the future of our planet shouldn’t get much attention.
However, that’s a little harder to swallow when you have people like the United States President agreeing with her.
That is until he hires a man who owns his very own private jet as his climate czar.
Yep, that’s right. Newly-appointed special envoy for climate John Kerry has been installed to make sure America’s carbon footprint is lessened, and if that means shutting down hundreds of thousands of jobs and increasing our independence on nations like China and Iran, so be it.
Just so long as he gets to keep his private jet and luxury lifestyle.
According to Fox News and the Federal Aviation Administration’s records, Kerry has access to a Gulfstream Aerospace jet through his wife’s family’s company, Flying Squirrel LLC. Both this charter company and the plane are owned by Teresa Heinz-Kerry (as in Heinz ketchup) through the Heinz Family Foundation.
And thanks to his failed presidential run in 2004, we know he uses it.
Campaign records prove that Kerry spent over $250,000 in rental fees, paid to his wife’s company, for the jet during his time in the race.
And since then, records indicate his use of the jet hasn’t diminished all that much.
In 2013, his financial records indicate a massive $1 million being paid to Flying Squirrel during his time as secretary of state.
He was also known to have owned a yacht during that time.
And yet, when given the task of reining in America’s effects on the climate, he doesn’t have a problem telling newly unemployed pipeline and oil drilling workers to “learn to code.”
Just to let you know, a private jet emits as much as 40 times as much carbon gas per capita as a commercial jet, which is what AOC typically uses.
Kerry also owns a beachfront home in Martha’s Vineyard worth $11.7 million. By the way, Martha’s Vineyard is just one of many elitist populated areas that environmentalists swear will soon be swallowed up by the sea due to the ever-rising ocean levels caused by global warming and our carbon emissions.
Thankfully, I am not the only one to have noticed Kerry’s hypocrisy or blatant disregard for the average American’s troubles.
Republican Senator Tom Cotton pointed it out on his Twitter account on Wednesday, saying, “John Kerry – who flies in private jets, owned a 76-foot yacht and several mansions – has the carbon footprint of a small nation. Yet he tells energy workers to ‘make solar panels’ when the Biden administration kills their jobs.”
Journalist Sara Carter has similar words.
“Must be easy to tell oil and gas workers to just ‘learn to code’ when you’re flying on your private jet and living the life of an elitist.”
As does the Daily Caller.
They wrote, “John Kerry wants you to know that climate change is a very serious threat.” This was placed next to multiple images of reports showing Kerry’s lavish lifestyle, including his Martha’s Vineyard home and private jet.
So do you think climate change is a real and imminent threat like Kerry says? I mean, he surely doesn’t act like it is when it comes to his private life.
If he did, he might not have spent a whopping $11.7 million on a home that’s about to sink to the bottom of the ocean. Nor would he travel around in high style when it’s been proven that such methods produce billions of pounds of carbon gases that harm the environment.
Lucy, you got some ‘splaining to do!
