Kerry: Climate Change is ‘The
Biggest Challenge of All That
We Face Right Now’

Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 8/14/2014 7:23:40 AM

The global impact of climate change is “the biggest challenge of all that we face right now,” Secretary of State John Kerry told an audience in Hawaii Wednesday, putting an issue he feels passionately about at the center of a speech entitled “U.S. Vision for Asia-Pacific Engagement.” “The science is screaming at us,” he said. “Ask any kid in school. They understand what a greenhouse is, how it works, why we call it the greenhouse effect. They get it.” “If you accept the science,” Kerry continued. “If you accept that the science is causing climate to change, you have to

Comments:
Biggest challenge right now? You would think someone on his staff would tell him about Gaza, Iraq and Boko Haram - for starters.

Kerry is quoted as saying: If you accept that the science is causing climate to change... To which I would say ... stop the science and you´ll stop the climate change. /s

If he would resign, and sit in one of his mansions, it would reduce the CO2 emissions by thousands of tons per year!

Our biggest challenge now isn´t climate change. It´s the rank incompetence of the US government.

Mitzi highlights the vacuous Kerry statement that ´the science is causing the change´. This man is so fond of the sound of his own voice that he doesn´t realize that he is speaking nonsense.

Climate change - he would have more credibility if he was worried about a comet strike.

I´m not the least bit surprised by this as I´ve spoken to people who also think this way. I don´t know how one can fear something that, even if true, would not affect the planet for hundreds of years and yet disregard something that is heinously barbaric and staring them in the face.

Some of it is ignorance from swallowing the WH talking points on the MSM every day, but Kerry should know better, especially after all of his recent failures in the ME. Perhaps it´s all deflection - Look, Squirrel!

True or False Question: Did Kerry fly to Hawaii to give this insipid speech? Big AF jets spew tons of green house gases, almost as much as Kerry and TelePrompTer Obama do during their speeches.

One would have thought that Kerry would have sailed his 76 foot sloop, Tax Evader, to Hawaii for the conference. Would have made interesting headline, SoS sends SOS.

Mr. Kerry has many challenges in his life. Climate change may be his personal pet rock.

With all he has personally done wrong, and with all the havoc he has contributed to, and with all the US servicemen he has accused of murdering civilians, it is no wonder that this sorry excuse for a human being thinks our biggest challenge is something we cannot affect, much less change.

Kerry has outlived his usefulness to the U.S. and needs to go home and shut up. He gives new meaning to out of touch. He is like Obama in that his words/actions never seem to embarrass him when they really should. We are in deep trouble with this pair in charge of our relationships with other countries.

Are the ranchers in the upper Midwest going to rely on the greenhouse effect and leave their livestock in the summer grazing lands until winter sets in? Or are they going to remember the early snow last year the killed hundreds of thousands of livestock caught by an early storm. Gee, listen to my recent experience or listen to children repeating propaganda? Not a tough call at all.

´Climate Change´ is a big money-maker for the left, and a great vehicle for a leftist takeover of energy and the economy. Its also a great distraction from all the issues that make the left look bad.

Somebody check Easter Island. One of its stone faces is missing. Kerry is unfit ´leader´. Have to wonder if will try another presidential run. He would fail miserably.

In October 2014, the first patient on American soil infected with the Ebola virus sits in isolation in a Texas hospital, prompting calls for travel restrictions between the United States and Ebola-stricken countries. Meanwhile, four years ago, the administration of President Barack Obama moved with virtually no fanfare to abandon a comprehensive set of regulations which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had called essential to preventing international travelers from spreading deadly diseases inside the United States. The CDC had proposed the regulations in 2005 under the administration of George W. Bush, reported USA Today in 2010. The

“Asinine” is the word the New York Times is using to describe Maurice “Hank” Greenberg’s $55 billion lawsuit against the United States over the Federal Reserve’s seizure of the AIG insurance combine at the start of the Financial Crisis. “Mostly insane” is the phrase the New Republic is using to describe the same suit, which it also calls “ridiculous.” The New Yorker, which sets Mr. Greenberg down as an “old coot,” characterizes his lawsuit as an “absurdist comedy.” The critics of the case seem strangely sneering in respect of the claim made by Starr International (Mr. Greenberg’s company is the

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. - At least two Colorado adults have died from complications from what may be enterovirus-68, the same strain that has afflicted hundreds, mostly children, across the country. Dr. Phil Emrie, a critical care pulmonologist at Lutheran Medical Center in Wheat Ridge, says he treated adult patients who suffered from conditions similar to the virus. “We don’t know for sure that it’s the enterovirus-68, but we do know that it’s consistent with the illness that they’re seeing in children,” Emrie said. That specific virus has been diagnosed primarily in children. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has

AUSTIN -- A divided federal appeals court ruled Thursday evening to allow Texas´s tough new abortion regulations to take effect, a decision that is expected to force all but seven clinics in the state to close. The ruling from a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals at least temporarily reversed a decision by a local judge who struck down two provisions of the law as unconstitutional in August. The order signed by Judges Jennifer Walker Elrod and Jerry E. Smith found that Texas officials were likely to ultimately win their appeal in defense of

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Thursday while speaking at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, President Barack Obama giggled and raised his arms as he mocked the Fox News Channel for it´s reporting on ObamaCare. Obama said, "There is a reason fewer Republicans, you hear them running around about ObamaCare, cause while good affordable health care might seem like a fanged threat to the freedom of the American people on Fox News it turns out its working pretty well in the real world."
