    State Department Failed To Track Kerry’s Jet Emissions

     

    Joe Biden’s “climate czar,” multimillionaire John Kerry, routinely has traveled by jet, often private jet.

    He once justified that to a questioner, explaining his responsibilities in the war on global warming are so important.

    But a new report revealed that when Biden told the State Department to monitor its emissions, it ignored two trips taken by Kerry.

    The Washington Examiner said State failed to track jet emissions from Kerry’s trips to two international environmental events, “despite an executive order from President Joe Biden.”

    The revelations come from a “scolding audit” by the Government Accountability Office.

    A report by columnist Paul Bedard revealed the GAO concluded State failed to follow Biden’s instructions, which were issued to “curb greenhouse gas emissions by federal officials.”

    “According to the United Kingdom government’s report, greenhouse gas emissions from aviation travel to COP26 were significant in comparison to estimated total emissions from the event. According to this report, approximately 72% of the greenhouse gas calculated residual emissions from the event came from international aviation,” the GAO audit said.

    Bedard reported State admitted it “wasn’t ready to track emissions in time…”

    The report said 191 Biden administration officials attended the 2021 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, and 259 attended the 2022 event in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.

    Kerry, who frequently has traveled around the globe by private jet, flew commercial in 2022 after he faced criticism for his travel extravagances.

    Bedard reported, “The GAO said the State Department estimated that flying just 66 State Department officials to the Egypt conference created 85 metric tons of emissions. For comparison, a Fox News Digital report said Kerry’s trips in a private family jet emitted more than 300 metric tons of carbon since he took office. Fox said, ‘The average American has a total carbon footprint of about 16 tons per year, according to the Nature Conservancy.’”
