Biden’s elitist climate czar John Kerry declares ‘we absolutely don’t’ need to drill more or ‘go back to coal’

Attending one of those interminable climate change-related conferences, Democrat John Kerry has dismissed the need for more fossil fuel production as a false narrative even as America is still suffering through an energy crisis.

The ex-U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and subsequently Secretary of State under President Obama is getting metaphorically roasted or “cooked” on Twitter for these typically out-of-touch comments.

Reportedly with an estimated net worth of $250 million, the self-important Kerry is President Joe Biden’s special presidential envoy for the climate.

“Energy security worry is driving a lot of the thoughts now that ‘oh, we need more drilling…we need more drilling with this, we need to go back to coal.’ No we don’t. We absolutely don’t. And we have to prevent a false narrative from entering into this or, again, pun intended, we are cooked,” Kerry claimed in comments at the USC Center for Public Diplomacy last week.

The arrogance and elitism of this,” Jason Howerton told his 73,000 Twitter followers in response to the Kerry soundbite, adding that, as a practical matter, “society needs oil and gas to function today.”

Kerry’s claim may also be yet another example of liberal projection, i.e., where someone who is actually pushing a false narrative, or misinformation/disinformation, accuses ideological opponents of doing that very same thing.

As of Wednesday, the national average gas price per gallon at the pump is $5, with no end in sight, as inflation continues to soar.

In a report published last summer, the New York Post noted that “The gas-guzzling private jet owned by climate czar John Kerry’s family has already taken 16 flights this year alone.” The State Department claimed at the time that Kerry only flies commercial or on a military plane as part of his official role in trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“Kerry has faced intense scrutiny in the past for defending his use of a private jet while preaching to the nation and the world about reducing emissions. After he was criticized for taking the jet to receive a climate award in Iceland in 2019, Kerry said: ‘If you offset your carbon, it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,'” the Post added, quoting the Democrat who lost to G.W. Bush in the 2004 presidential election.

In the meantime, Biden has taken a timeout from blaming the so-called Putin price hike for soaring gas prices to demand that oil companies increase their output amid “historically high refinery profit margins.”

Upon taking office, Biden reversed America’s energy independence that was in effect under his predecessor Donald Trump.

According to Fox Business, the incumbent POTUS sent a letter to seven oil companies threatening to use emergency powers if they don’t comply with his request to take immediate action. “Biden’s letter does not offer a timeline for when his administration would resort to emergency powers, threatening only to do so in the ‘near term.,” Fox Business added.

Parenthetically, it’s all well and good for the Biden/Harris administration, for example, to promote electric cars for those who can afford one. Most of the electricity to power those vehicles is currently generated, however, by fossil fuels rather than renewables.

Kerry, 78, stands accused of holding secret talks with the Iranians while the Trump administration was seeking to either renegotiate or exit the flawed nuclear deal.

History has also proven Kerry wrong when he insisted that peace between Israel and its neighbors would be impossible without the resolution of the Palestinian issue.

Especially perhaps given his sketchy track record in real-world diplomacy, other social media users are weighing in on Kerry’s latest pronouncement.
