John Kerry Is “Amazed” That Most Americans Aren’t Suckers

John Kerry Is “Amazed” That Most Americans Aren’t Suckers

For me, the money quote out of the article, one I’m still chuckling about, is this: 

“He told the event that buildings are a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.”  

Buildings.  Like this one?

Or THIS one?

His entire “amazement” stems from his frustration that not everybody subscribes to the IPPC assessments on climate change.   Neither do I and precisely because of this:

“The IPCC does not carry out its own original research, nor does it do the work of monitoring climate or related phenomena itself. A main activity of the IPCC is publishing special reports on topics relevant to the implementation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), an international treaty that acknowledges the possibility of harmful climate change. Implementation of the UNFCCC led eventually to the Kyoto Protocol. The IPCC bases its assessment mainly on peer reviewed and published scientific literature. Membership of the IPCC is open to all members of the WMO and UNEP.”

While John Kerry is busy being “amazed” at Americans that live and work in buildings, there are actual scientists de-bunking the whole “Nervous Nelly” myth of climate “change”.

More from the article:

“Earlier this year the journal Organization Studies – which is peer-reviewed – published the results of a survey of 1,077 professional engineers’ and geoscientists’ views on climate change. Based on a breakdown of their views, it placed the respondents into five category groups. Only one of the five, accounting for 36 percent of the total, “express[ed] the strong belief that climate change is happening, that it is not a normal cycle of nature, and humans are the main or central cause.” “They are the only group to see the scientific debate as mostly settled and the IPCC modeling to be accurate,” the survey found. All four of the other groups, with slight variations, expressed varying degrees of skepticism about the asserted causes of climate change, the extent of public risk it poses, and the accuracy of IPCC modeling.  Although the IPCC claims to be unbiased and to have based its assessment on the best available science, we have found this to not be the case,” the summary states. “In many instances conclusions have been seriously exaggerated, relevant facts have been distorted, and key scientific studies have been ignored.” A key conclusion reached in the NIPCC report is that the IPCC “has exaggerated the amount of warming likely to occur if the concentration of atmospheric CO2 were to double, and such warming as occurs is likely to be modest and cause no net harm to the global environment or to human well-being.

Well, never fear, because John has promised he’s not going to stand for it!  Be afraid of the Kerry laser focus!!!

“I can assure you this department will be and I will be laser-focused on how we are going to step up our response to the reality of the threat that climate change poses to all of us,” he said.

Because I have a pretty good idea that laser is pointing toward our wallets.

    And he drives gas guzzling SUV’s.

      don’t forget his multiple boats…and jet skies.

        Also, don’t forget Mitt Romney’s car elevator so he can store a dozen or so cars in his basement. I’m guessing there’s a jet or two in there as well.

        • Kate says:

          Sure. But Mitt isn’t flapping his trap hypocritically about climate change and greenhouse gas emissions like Lurch here.

          • Kevin says:

            HA! My point exactly. Now you know why the mainstream media goes apeshit when a conservative cheats on his wife or gets caught swinging his schlong around in an airport bathroom. It’s because conservatives are hypocritical about “family values.” They don’t do what they preach! Kind of like Mr. Kerry and greenhouse gas.

            Thanks for falling into my trap. I knew you couldn’t resist. 😉

  • “He told the event that buildings are a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.”

    Buildings full of politicians. That’s a lot of CO2. And if you place open microphones out like salt licks for deer, the amount expelled goes up exponentially.

    And here I thought that it was easier to hold them accountable for having standards, and succumbing to their humanity and failing short of them vs. not having any standards at all, and indulging in all manner of gratification as if it were virtue.

    Huh. The More You Know…

    • Kevin says:

      So, one group succumbs to their humanity and the other, when they fail, have no standards.

      Let’s look at the definition of a hypocrite:
      (1) A person who engages in the same behaviors he condemns others for. (2) A person who professes certain ideals, but fails to live up to them. (3) A person who holds other people to higher standards than he holds himself.

      You just won the award for the biggest hypocrite of the year! I knew you could do it. You just had to have faith (that’s another story).

      • *claps*

        Very good. But when you start looking into “faith”, you might spend some time pondering what is said in the Bible about ALL of us falling short of the mark. If you’re serious about the standards, that failure doesn’t mean you’re a hypocrite (which in the biblical sense, means quite literally a play actor, thus saying something about the sincerity of the person in question…such as the “whitewashed sepulchers), it means you haven’t gotten it right yet.

        That shouldn’t be taken to mean that all politicians who talk about the standard are sincere about it, but considering some of them still possess something resembling shame (a concept totally foreign to Billy Jeff or Lord Zero), it would indicate that the standard means something to them, if only because it means something to their constituents.

        But thank you for your attempt. If you keep trying, you might just learn enough to realize that you’re wrong about almost everything!

      • And yes, the fact that a sex scandal, a financial scandal, and the fact that they can openly advocate for state-sponsored theft in the form of redistribution of wealth and a private right of murder on demand are all considered resume’ enhancers for those with the magic (D) after their names are a pretty good indication of a lack of standards.

      • Romans 3:21-3:27 and Galatians 3:22-3:25 bear some contemplation as you consider the concept.

      • GWB says:

        Your second definition is patently not the definition of a hypocrite.

        BTW, your bit about “It’s because conservatives are hypocritical about ‘family values.'” is a textbook example of the logical Fallacy of Composition.

  • Kate says:

    Kevin
    I could respond directly under your comment but sorry, I didn’t “fall into your trap”. See that’s the fundamental difference between libs and Conservatives. Libs couldn’t care less whether they’re hypocrites or not – like JK on climate change. Conservatives on the other hand, do. We know global warming, er, climate change is hogwash and refuse to pretend otherwise.

    • GWB says:

      Kate, let’s make sure we are clear for the slower kids in class (now, now, no need to point): we don’t believe in anthropogenic climate change.

      I think we all agree that climate change occurs. But, caused by man? Not so much. Heck, PInatubo put more greenhouse gases in the air when it blew than mankind has pushed out from the Industrial Revolution to today. And, the sun is going into a minimum, possibly, meaning global cooling. Lots of things cause climate change, but man’s contribution to that is insignificant.
