Kerry: ‘There would be no Climate Agreement if there were actual penalties’


Here is something silly from a silly Secretary of State for a Tuesday. Of course it has been reported the U.S. is up for giving $100 Billion for our carbon sins to poor countries, but what the heck. Here Kerry opines on two insights on the Global Warming “agreement.”Kerry: Public Shaming is ‘Most Powerful Weapon in Many Ways’ to Enforce World Climate Agreement. The other astute observation?

While discussing the global climate change agreement made in Paris over the weekend, Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged on Fox News Sunday that there wouldn’t been an agreement at all if there were binding penalties for countries not meeting emissions standards.

President Obama, Kerry said, was determined to “get an agreement that would move the world in the right direction.” As such, Kerry said that the “best thing we can do” to get countries to reduce their carbon emissions was a “mandatory reporting requirement.”

In a bit of circular logic, Kerry said that countries would have to retool their reduction levels every five years to meet their commitments, but he couldn’t say there was anything beyond their own word to force them to so.

“The best thing we can do in an effort to try to change people’s thinking is to do this mandatory reporting requirement,” Kerry said. “The mandatory reporting requirement has to be updated every five years. Every five years, it is mandatory that countries retool their reduction levels in order to meet the demands of meeting the curve of reduction to which they have committed. So that is a serious form of enforcement, if you will, compliance. But there is no penalty for it, obviously, but if there had been a penalty, we wouldn’t have been able to get an agreement.”

    Thanks Bunker, here’s my take with some additional video clearly demonstrating that Kerry if among the functionally brain dead that walks among us. Added a couple images as well. This entire administration needs to be put to sleep.

    Enjoy, and Merry Christmas, J.C. from We The People

    This is nothing short of extortion. If you live on an atoll, you get money from the US taxpayer because the fable is now the truth according to the gospel of Barry and Horseface.

    Boy John Kerry is on a roll lately, isn’t he? So there are no penalties for countries who exceed their output and yet we are still giving them billions of dollars? Is there any doubt at this point that this is only about global redistribution of wealth?

        Once we cannot see more than 10 feet in front or our automobile windshield through the smog and pollution then we too will be exempt from mandatory reporting. But surely we will not be exempt even then from paying billions in tribute to third world polluting shitholes the world over. Ha ha ha!
