(Tea Party PAC) – You know who we haven’t heard from in a little while? Former Secretary of State John Kerry. Man, don’t you just wonder what he’s been up to lately? If you’re anything like the rest of America the answer to that question is probably not. Who, besides Al Gore, could possibly be less relevant to anything at all than John Kerry.
Yet, thanks to former President Bill Clinton and Hollywood megastar Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry has found a way to get himself back in the spotlight again, giving us all the one thing we never would’ve ever asked for this holiday season.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
Former Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday announced the launch “World War Zero,” a star-studded coalition of former heads of state and Hollywood figures dedicated to advocating for solutions to climate change.
The forthcoming organization’s website states their chief objective is to mobilize resources to tackle global warming in a way akin to the Western allies in World War II.
The New York Times reports that John Kerry, who served as a senator in Massachusetts from 1985 to 2013, has recruited former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter and former Republican governors John Kasich and Arnold Schwarzenegger. A-listers such as actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Ashton Kutcher, and rocker Sting are also on board. Over 60 figures are said to have signed up for the coalition.
“We’re going to try to reach millions of people, Americans and people in other parts of the world, in order to mobilize an army of people who are going to demand action now on climate change sufficient to meet the challenge,” Kerry said in an interview with the Times.
Kerry has been an outspoken critic of the Trump administration’s environmental policies, calling them “profoundly dangerous” for the planet, and has repeatedly criticized the president’s removal of the U.S. from the 2016 Paris Agreement.
Future generations will measure us by whether we acted on facts, not just debated or denied them. The verdict will hang on whether we put in place policies that will drive the development and deployment of clean technologies, re-energize our economies, and tackle global climate change,” the Obama-era official wrote in an opinion-editorial for the Times last year. “Every day that goes by that we’re paralyzed by the Luddite in the White House is a day in the future that our grandchildren will suffer.”
Last November, Kerry told The Guardian that “people are going to die” with the U.S. no longer a part of the Paris patch. “My kids and my grandkids are going to face a difficult world because of what Donald Trump has done,” he told the British newspaper.
You know a political figure is desperate to get some attention when they adopt a hot pet cause they probably know absolutely nothing about and then rope in celebrities who are eager to stay relevant and working in the entertainment industry to support your work in said “cause.”
What’s truly strange is that DiCaprio is helping out on this project. He’s clearly one of the greatest actors of our time and doesn’t need to worry in the slightest about staying relevant. So why get so openly political? Because he’s one of the most dangerous kind of folks in the leftist movement. The kind who actually believe their worldview is the best one for our society.
The fact remains that none of us knows enough about the science or lack thereof, behind climate change to make any sort of final deduction on the topic. Much more research and study needs to be done before conclusions are reached.
