Joe Biden is so serious about climate change that he will send several jets loaded down with more than a dozen of his Cabinet members and their bloated staff worldwide to the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Glasgow.
Biden will be taking his own 747 along with the entire crew that Air Force One requires for another G-20 meeting in Rome.
Biden seems happy to show the U.N. how serious he is about global warming after the Trump administration. Donald Trump took the U.S. out of the 2015 Paris Climate Accords because he said they are a waste of time and harm the American economy, while mega-polluters like China and India scoff at the West’s obsession with climate politics.
Biden’s favorite pastimes have been climate change politics and bureaucracy, at least since he was part of the Obama administration. This summer, Biden told the U.S. military that the “greatest threat to national security” is climate change, creating yet more disastrous mission creep and confusion.
John Kerry will be leading the American delegation in Scotland for the weeks-long climate conference that begins on November 1. Kerry will wear the title of the “Special Presidential Envoy for Climate” as he beats it over to Europe with plane-loads of other Obama retreads.
“Everybody who is Anybody” in the administration is getting a climate vacation, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, EPA Administrator Michael Regan, and Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, to name a few of the many getting the VIP treatment.
Oh, we shouldn’t forget Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “Mayor Pete” finished his months-long paternity leave just in time to leave the country to deal with the worsening supply chain crisis.
The White House issued a statement explaining that Biden will “showcase” his “whole-of-government” approach to the climate situation so that all will see that the nations who “take decisive action” will receive the benefits of the “clean energy future.”
