MARRAKECH, Morocco — Full Sec. Kerry Remarks http://www.state.gov/secretary/remarks/2016/11/264366.htm
John Kerry – Secretary of State – Marrakech, Morocco – November 16, 2016
Sampling of False Kerry Climate Claims:
Kerry claim to UN: “The West Antarctic Ice Sheet is a sword of Damocles hanging over our entire way of life”
Kerry: ‘The East Antarctic Ice Sheet three miles deep. And if all that ice were somehow able to melt away completely because we are irresponsible about climate change…’
Reality Check: NASA Study: ‘Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise’ – ‘Mass Gains of Antarctic – Ice Sheet Greater than Losses’
Kerry: If Antarctica melts, ‘in the coming centuries, sea level would rise somewhere over 100 to 200 feet.’
Reality Check: Former NASA Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer in 2016: “Sea level rise, which was occurring long before humans could be blamed, has not accelerated and still amounts to only 1 inch every 10 years.
Kerry: Recently “average of 22.5M people have been displaced by extreme weather events annually. We never saw that in the 20th Century
Reality Check: “Extreme weather is either on no trend or declining trends! 25 New Papers Confirm A Remarkably Stable Modern Climate: Fewer Intense Storms, Hurricanes, Droughts, Floods, Fires…
Kerry: “Storms that used to happen once every 500 yrs are becoming relatively normal”
Reality Check: PROF. ROGER PIELKE JR: TESTIMONY ON THE CURRENT STATE OF WEATHER EXTREMES: ‘It is
misleading, and just plain incorrect, to claim that disasters associated with hurricanes, tornadoes, floods or droughts have increased on climate timescales either in the United States or globally’
Kerry: “The reason both [wind and solar] will continue is that the marketplace will dictate that, not the government”
Reality Check: Then why the hell do we need a UN treaty to centrally plan our energy supplies and economies if the marketplace will dictate?
