John Kerry Claims “We Have 9 Years Left”

( John Kerry is back in government, and he’s peddling yet more horror stories about the environment.

This time around, Kerry is the United States’ special presidential envoy for climate, and during a recent interview with Ben Tracy of CBS News, Kerry said that the planet only has nine years left to avoid a climate catastrophe.

“Obviously we want to prevent this from becoming the new normal to the degree that we can,” he said, also describing how climate change represents both increases and decreases in temperature and affects all weather patterns.

“I think it’s a very appropriate way to think of it, so it is directly related to the warming, even though your instinct is to say, wait a minute, this is the new Ice Age. But it’s not,” he added. “It’s coming from the global warming and it threatens all the normal weather patterns.”

Kerry’s warning might be hard for many people to accept, given just how many other warnings have proven to be wrong. Following the 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth,” Al Gore predicted that the North Pole would be completely ice-free by 2014.

Many scientists agree that the warming of the planet is occurring in large part because of human-generated greenhouse gas emissions from cars, factories, and general industry. The way that humans farm food has also become a focus of climate change believers, but while the United States is the second-largest emitter on the planet, the first largest, China, doesn’t appear to be doing anything to cut emissions.

Kerry now warns that we have only nine years left to reverse climate change.

‘Well, the scientists told us three years ago we had 12 years to avert the worst consequences of climate crisis,” Kerry said. “We are now three years gone, so we have nine years left.”

Kerry used it as an opportunity to push the Paris Climate Accord, a job-killing agreement that President Donald Trump withdrew from during his presidency. Despite withdrawing from the agreement, the United States continued to lead the way in creating green energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The Biden administration, after re-joining the Paris Agreement, is expected to announce more radical plans to reverse climate change before April.
