John Kerry Vows to Spend $10B Taxpayer Money Fighting ‘Climate Crisis’
We’re doing just a little bit shy of that for 2022
Climate czar John Kerry has announced that Joe Biden is committed to increasing US funding of $10 billion annually to help combat the “climate crisis.”
Kerry told the UN Security Council meeting on Wednesday that US taxpayer dollars will be forthcoming and placed at the disposal of the globalist body to help redistribute wealth in a time of crisis to poorer countries that need it most.
He added that Biden promised to increase annual US climate finance to over $11 billion, quadruple funding from the 2009-2017 presidency of Barack Obama when Biden was vice president.
“And that increase is going to help us to deliver on $100 billion,” Kerry said.
“We’re doing just a little bit shy of that for 2022."
“It is absolutely clear we will have it for 2023,” he added.
“I still think we can get it for 2022.”
Kerry, a long-time friend and Senate colleague of Biden said as part of increased US efforts at last November’s UN climate summit in Glasgow, Biden announced “an emergency plan for adaptation and resilience.”
It “is going to help more than 500 million people in developing countries to be able to manage the impacts of the climate crisis by 2030,” he said.
The AP report outlined he said the administration is working with the US Congress to produce $3 billion annually for the program and increase adaptation efforts for 2024.
“It’s the largest kind of commitment like this that the United States has ever made in our history,” he said.
But Kerry said to fund the economic transition that all countries must make to tackle climate change, “it’s going to require not just $100 billion but trillions of dollars.”
“No single government — no group of governments — can meet the $2.5 trillion to $4.6 trillion deficit that we face in order to affect this transition,” he said.
Earlier this week, Kerry said that the Ukraine refugee crisis would pale compared to the wave of migration due to climate change.
DurMonday’say’s annual CERAWeek conference in Houston, Kerry said that the US must not lose sight of its path toward clean energy despite the Russia-Ukraine
“We’re already seeing climate refugees around the world,” he said.
“If you think migration has been a problem in Europe in the Syrian War or even from what we see now, wait until you see 100 million people for whom the entire food production capacity has collapsed."
