Republicans Introduce Bill to Defund ‘Climate Tyrant’ John Kerry
'Disastrous energy policies peddled by hysterical fools'
A new bill has been introduced by eight Republican House members to defund climate czar John Kerry and other “climate tyrants“ inside the Biden administration.
The Republicans blame them for an energy crisis that has sent gasoline soaring to $5 a gallon.
The group, led by Rep. Chip Roy of Texas, introduced the No Taxpayer Funding for CZARS Act that would ban federal funding for any activity of the special presidential envoy for climate, including salary and both administrative and travel expenses.
“Hard-working Americans are struggling every day to afford gas and electricity because of the disastrous energy policies peddled by hysterical fools like John Kerry,” Roy said in announcing the legislation.
He took particular aim at Kerry‘s reported use of government jets to fly to global environmental conferences.
“The Biden administration’s jet-setting climate czar is actively destroying reliable American energy by saddling us with outrageous commitments at hypocritical climate conferences, pressuring banks not to lend to fossil fuel producers, and fighting to end oil and gas production,” Roy said.
“Enough. If we're going to fight for energy freedom in this country, we have to defund climate tyrants like John Kerry. My bill would do just that," he added.
Others joining in the legislation are:
Reps Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Lauren Boebert of Colorado, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Mary Miller of Illinois, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Greg Steube of Florida.
While taking aim at the Biden administration‘s climate policies, House Republicans have offered their own climate-change agenda that stresses an all-of-the-above approach to energy to help lower gas prices now while reducing carbon emissions through nuclear power, conservation, and technology innovation.
Earlier this year, Kerry 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."
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.
