Secretary of State John Kerry, who should probably be figuring out how to stop terrorist attacks on American soil, admitted that all of America’s enviro-jihad laws are totally worthless.
The fact is that even if every American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what – that still wouldn’t be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world.
If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions –- remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions -– it wouldn’t be enough, not when more than 65% of the world’s carbon pollution comes from the developing world.
So if lawyers are able to read this, it looks like a lot of American businesses are heading back to court unless John Kerry eats every word. For instance:
The admission should have legal as well as political consequences. In the 2007 Supreme Court decision giving EPA authority to regulate greenhouse gases, the Supreme Court was careful to note that, although EPA couldn’t solve the global warming problem all at once or by itself, it was allowed to make incremental progress on the problem. Kerry’s admission shows that the U.S. government knows that such progress is simply not possible.
Each time John Kerry speaks, Americans are a little more curious as to what he brings to the table for us. Does the rest of the world take him seriously? You don’t have to answer that.
