John Kerry is Biden’s U.S. special presidential envoy for climate, he was called out earlier this year for not practicing what he preaches.
Kerry is flying around the world warning of the dangers of carbon emissions and in the process, he inflicted a carbon footprint on the environment 300 times larger than the average American in a single year.
Because of the spotlight, Kerry has been under, the State Department reported that Kerry will travel on at least one of his trips coming up on a commercial airline. We will see how long that lasts.
After his conversation on climate change in London, Kerry flew to the United Arab Emirates where he discussed “regional climate action” with Near Eastern oil barons and beneficiaries. From there, he will head to Egypt to lead the U.S. delegation to the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27). While there, he will lead the discussion about possible U.S. reparations to the third world.
A State Department spokesman revealed to Fox News Digital that Kerry would be flying to COP27 in a commercial jet. It is unclear whether it is just this one trip or the others will be included as well.
Judicial Watch is trying to get to the bottom of Kerry’s plans on his planes by filing a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit last week against the State Department for details of Kerry’s office and its travel costs.
Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, stated, “The American people have a right to know what John Kerry is up to, what we’re paying him to fly around the world, and who we pay to actually work for him.”
Fitton is the one that said Kerry was likely responsible for “more carbon distribution than anything else they are complaining about.”
It was also reported by one news outlet that Kerry had flown over 180,000 miles when conducting his role as climate envoy. This is although his office has access to high-quality teleconferencing technologies.
An analysis done by the Washington Free Beacon of fuel consumption in Kerry’s travel plans showed that Kerry was responsible for the emission of over 9.54 million pounds (4,772 tons) of carbon since March 2021.
In comparison, the average American’s yearly carbon footprint is 16 tons.
