ALG Welcomes John Kerry to the anti-Paris Climate Accord club

Kerry would willingly destroy hundreds of millions of lives through economic destruction.

Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement responding to White House climate envoy John Kerry’s concession that even if China and the U.S. eliminated all of their carbon emissions, it would still not achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Accords:

“John Kerry says that even if China and the U.S. eliminated all of their carbon emissions, it would still not achieve the arbitrary goals set out by the Paris Climate Accords. I want to welcome John Kerry to the opposition of the Paris Climate Accords. It is unconscionable that this ‘agreement’ gives China, the world’s largest polluter, free rein to continue developing until 2030, encouraging even more manufacturing outsourcing to the communist polluters in Beijing. We also are excited that Kerry concedes that the goals set out by the agreement are unachievable and futile, calling the whole enterprise into question. At best, the goals are a wish list that has been made even worse in the recent deal to increase these unachievable goals.

“Where we part with Kerry is that he would willingly destroy hundreds of millions of lives through economic destruction resulting from starvation on account of the policies he advocates, consigning developing countries to energy poverty. Under Donald Trump, America exceeded the Paris Climate Accord’s goals without even being a party to them. What’s more, the real cost of an expanded environmental regulatory regime from the U.S. government is the exportation of factory jobs to places like China where pollution is a way of life.

“We hope John Kerry is smart enough to understand the ramifications of his admission that no matter what America does, it will never be enough. But history has shown us that John Kerry isn’t that smart.”
