Have you ever sat at work while drinking a burnt cup of coffee-turned-lukewarm and wondered what exactly you're working so hard for in President Joe Biden's economy?
Well, if you are blessed with employment in this inflation nation, you know that a giant chunk of change is taken out of your paycheck each week to support items such as ol' Uncle Joe's vision of a green energy utopia that will never come. The chief promoter of that new world order is a certain John Kerry - a Boston Brahmin wannabe who is paid an unknown amount of money by U.S. taxpayers each year so he can luxuriously travel the globe to push that agenda.
He has defended his use of private jets because he sees it as essential to carrying out his mission and hopes to offset his carbon emissions via his activism. The Left wants you to give up your gas stove, but they need their airplanes because their lives are more important than yours.
Per his latest appearance in Davos at the World Economic Forum, his work is so crucial - and so misunderstood - that he had to pat himself and his elite colleagues on the back for "saving the world"
from climate change because nobody else will do it for them.
Not a joke!
"When you stop and think about it, it's pretty extraordinary that we - a select group of human beings because of whatever touched us at some point in our lives - are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet,"
Kerry gushed on Tuesday. "I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about 'saving the planet.'"
Kerry added, "If you said that to most people, most people would think you're just a crazy, tree-hugging, leftie, liberal do-gooder ... but really that's where we are."
Of course, well done is better than well said, which is to say that the husband of the heiress to the Heinz ketchup fortune has done a miserable job.
For example, Kerry hasn't had any luck wrangling the Red Dragon of the Chinese Communist Party, so instead, he bullies third-world countries.
Consider that last year, he asked the Democratic Republic of Congo to withdraw from auctioning off certain blocks of oil and gas to combat climate change. He also told other poorer nations to pick their choice of fossil fuel by making a sacrifice for the so-called greater good of the world.
"We are not saying no gas,"
Kerry said at a conference in Dakar, Senegal, in 2022. "What we are saying is, over the next few years, gas replaces coal or replaces oil."
China, meanwhile, barreled ahead to produce a record amount of coal in 2022. In turn, it seems that Kerry's CCP counterpart has barely answered his emails. America's climate czar also blamed a bout of COVID in November for another round of failed talks with China.
So, it isn't going great. What could help? Another form of "green."
Kerry's solution to getting more countries on board to save the planet is to throw more money at the problem. Well, actually to quote him precisely, it's "money, money, money, money, money, money, money."
So, as you ponder whether or not you should dump out that coffee mentioned earlier for a fresh cup, you can rest assured that your efforts to provide a better life for your family have not gone in vain - if you are to believe Kerry.
You are going to be taxed out of the wazoo so you can help Kerry give away "money, money, money"
to all his Davos pals, courtesy of your federal government, to stop the planet from maybe getting warmer sometime down the road.
