This week, President Joe Biden’s Climate Czar suggested that public perception of Russia’s war in Ukraine could improve if Russia made efforts to lower its emissions.

John Kerry made these bizarre statements at his farewell press conference, having held the position for the entirety of Joe Biden’s first term in office.

“I believe that Russia has the ability to be able to make enormous changes if it really wanted to. I mean, if Russia has the ability to wage a war illegally and invade another country, they ought to be able to find the effort to be responsible on the climate issue. Unfortunately, because of the actions that Russia took in an unprovoked, illegal war against another nation, we have not been engaged in discussions with Russia.” Kerry said.

“Sadly, and I say sadly because it’s a loss for the world not to be able to have Russia acting constructively on this issue. But we need every country, including Russia — Russia is one of the largest emitters in the world — if Russia wanted to show good faith, they could go out and announce what their reductions are going to be and make a greater effort to reduce emissions now. Maybe that would open up the door for people to feel better about what Russia is choosing to do at this point in time.” he concluded.
