(DCWatchdog.com) – Most Americans can be forgiven if they have forgotten that former Secretary of State John Kerry was appointed by President Joe Biden to serve as the first United States Special Presidential Envoy for Climate as, for the most part, he stays out of the news and seems inconsequential.
However, he does have the ear of Biden. And, like all presidential appointees in every presidential administration, when he speaks, it is assumed he is speaking on behalf of the President of the United States.
Now, Kerry is weighing in on the Russian invasion of Ukraine and what he believes it means for Americans.
As CNBC is noting today:
“Volatile energy prices are here to stay with Russia’s war on Ukraine set to be a ‘defining moment’ for this century, John Kerry, special presidential envoy for climate, said Monday…
“Kerry, who served as Secretary of State during the Obama administration, said volatility is ‘something we’re going to live with for a little while,’ with nations having to come together to counter President Vladimir Putin’s ‘illegal, unprovoked, profound dangerous’ war.”
As for the development of so-called green energy versus the continued consumption of fossil fuels, Kerry? “Kerry added that the Biden administration is committed to an ‘all of the above’ approach when it comes to energy policy looking forward.”
What do you believe? Is John Kerry correct when he says volatile energy prices are here to stay with Russia’s war on Ukraine set to be a “defining moment” for this century? Does John Kerry’s opinion on global matters and energy matter? Please email [email protected] with your thoughts and opinion. Thank you.
