John Kerry Let The Cat Out Of The Bag Revealing More Mandates Are Coming…

(TheConservativeNews.org) – Biden’s Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry revealed that more climate mandates are coming in an interview with Yahoo News, reporter Ben Adler published on Friday.

“Well, we’re doing a lot more than just the IRA [Inflation Reduction Act],” Kerry said. “The IRA is just a package that in-and-of-itself could get the 40 percent [emissions below 2005 levels by 2030]. But in addition to that, the president is issuing executive orders. There will be changes on automobile, light truck, heavy truck, heavy duty. A number of initiatives being taken by states, some national. Cities. They really kept us in the game, frankly, during the Trump administration, when he pulled out of the [Paris] Agreement.”

“Seventy-percent of the new electricity that came online curing the Trump administration came from renewable resources,” Kerry added.

Kerry also remarked on new emissions targets in the context of a new Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report.

“You mentioned the recent IPCC report, came out Monday,”Adler said. “And obviously, very sobering, like those reports always are. And the big news out of it was that in addition to the 43% cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 that they’ve already said we need to make, in addition, they say now a 60% reduction by 2035. So that’s a steep drop in the early 2030s. And obviously, what happens in the early 2030s is really being determined by the policy that we make right now.”

“Correct,” he replied.

“So do you think the world can get there?” Adler asked. “Do you think that these next few climate conferences, the COPs will bring forth pledges that big and plans to actually meet those pledges?”

“I know that the world can get there, but I am not convinced that we will,” he replied. “And the biggest reason is there’s a business as usual attitude in too many places in the world. There are some CEOs still of major corporations who have not moved their companies or haven’t bought in to scientific facts. There are sort of different cultures and different universe of facts that are passing each other day and night. And that’s a challenge. It’s a serious challenge.”
