John Kerry loves private jets.
In a move dripping with irony, in 2019 Kerry took one to Iceland to receive a climate award. Yes, President Joe Biden's new climate czar flew to a country being impacted by climate change on a private jet to get a trophy. Then he downplayed it.
From Fox News:
Icelandic reporter Jóhann Bjarni Kolbeinsson confronted Kerry at the event over his choice of transportation, asking: "I understand that you came here with a private jet. Is that an environmental way to travel?"
Kerry responded by claiming that it was the only way. "If you offset your carbon -- it's the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle," Kerry said.
For people like him. Not you. You aren't like John Kerry. He gets to traverse the world because he offsets his carbon use. Kerry didn't explain what he does to offset his carbon either. But, he doesn't have to. He's the climate czar.
Make no mistake about what's happening here. The climate left will attack you for driving an F-150 while having no problem flying around the world on a jet despite this stat from Bloomberg:
A private jet emits as much as 20 times more carbon dioxide per passenger mile than a commercial airliner, according to Victor, a private jet charter company. Still, no matter how you fly, you're contributing to climate change.
They are important people, after all, and more important than you.
