‘Are you serious?’: John Kerry’s climate change credentials challenged by GOP lawmaker

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 4/10/2019 2:34:46 PM

Former secretary of state John F. Kerry responded in disbelief when a Republican congressman challenged his credentials on climate change, prompting the veteran politician to ask, “This is really happening here?” Kerry, who helped broker the 2015 Paris climate accord that President Trump pulled out of, returned to Capitol Hill on Tuesday to serve as a witness for a House Oversight Committee hearing on the need for leadership to combat climate change. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), who has two engineering degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, began his line of questioning attempting to undermine Kerry’s authority


John Kerry was way over his head in this questioning session and the Washington Post writer doesn´t understand any of it.

How could anyone question Kerry´s credentials on global warming, at least the scamming expertise at which he is a master equal to Al Gore.

JohnF. Kerry, who served in Vietnam, was auditioning for a remake of Dumb & Dumber. Like all liberals who lack facts he brought “good intentions” to the hearing along with his moral superiority. Glad he got worked over. Did he ask the committee if the had a phone number for Jeff Bezos’ ex-wife?

Poor little Colby has no clue as to why Massie was correct and Kerry is a phony blowhard. Little Colby has a degree in ´journalism´ and no education in science. He does know for sure that 98% of all Climate Scientist agree that man-made whatever they are calling today will kill us in 12 years unless we give trillions to the UN and 3rd world countries and destroy capitalism and our economy in the process.

I finally figured it out! The climate change people think they can control the weather if they control the behavior of people.
Just as abortion is denying the sovereignty of Gd, claiming to have the ability to control the climate is also denying the sovereignty of Gd.

Engineers have to be qualified to design and oversee the construction of buildings and systems. Qualifications are based on knowledge and experience (i.e., data put into action over time). If engineers are not qualified, buildings and systems fail. Qualified engineers pursue credentials -- documentation that gives credence to the claim that the engineer really knows what he/she is doing.

Representative Massie is asking a reasonable question. What makes Kerry qualified to speak on so-called climate change? Is Kerry a scientist? What research has Kerry done? Or is Kerry stepping out in faith on climate change?

One could ask the same question of Al Gore -- the guy who flunked out of seminary!

If the lower 48 of the United States were to suffer a cataclysm equal to the destruction of the continent of Atlantis...if the continental United States were to disappear beneath the waves, from Maine to San Diego...the effect upon the amount of hydrocarbons and particulate matter polluting the atmosphere would be statistically inconsequential. Russia, China, Europe, The Middle East dump almost all the pollutants. And none of them is prepared to give a damn about it. All John Kerry can do is LIE. And then lie some more.

Good job by Congressman Massie. Kerry responded like the pompous blowhard he is. And it all went over the WaPoo writer´s head.

The exchange reminds me of a Robert Heinlein guote:
Never attempt to teach a pig to sing - it wastes your time and annoys the pig.

This is usually true. Here the pig (Kerry) was annoyed, but this particular discussion was NOT a waste of time, since it might open some readers´ eyes, even if the dopey reporter missed it all.

Massie is exactly right. There is zero science in a political science degree.

I had never heard of it when I first went to college. One guy in a dorm room on our floor was a real screw-off party guy, and was majoring in Political Science, literally the first time I had heard the term. I was baffled, knowing that politics has as much to do with science as as turnips do to opera. I asked him about it, and he laughed and admitted,"It´s all BS, easy stuff, that´s why I am taking it!" with a huge grin.

I lost track of Chuck after that year, didn´t see him again until about 2007, at the Sun-N-Fun Fly-In in Lakeland, Fla. I went to buy some sunglasses at a little trailer business which sold sunglasses. Behind the counter was old Chuck, recognized his booming voice and ugly mug right away, well over 40 years later. I asked if it was him, and he recognized me, seemed embarrassed and I let it go with a "Good to see you, man!" After buying some $10 sunglasses.
That is where a lot of Poli-Sci majors wind up, or similar jobs. Like selling MMGW snake oil.

Former Rep. Trey Gowdy stunned House investigators recently by all but announcing the existence of secret FBI recordings of Trump campaign foreign policy volunteer adviser George Papadopoulos, made in the summer of 2016 by an undercover FBI operation. Gowdy made the revelation in an interview Sunday with Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo. "There are a lot of serious questions that need to be asked" during Attorney General William Barr's investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, Gowdy said. Among them: "Where are the transcripts, if any exist, between the informants and the telephone calls to George Papadopoulos?"

Australia’s dysfunctional, unpopular, conservative government (the Liberal and National parties, currently in coalition, sit on the right in Australian politics) held onto power for a third term in Saturday’s national election. This happened despite the fact that most analysts expected it to lose a large number of seats; despite being (seemingly) out of step with the nation’s emerging consensus on climate change, marriage equality, religion, and race; despite a chaotic tenure in office that has seen three leaders since 2016; despite a threadbare

Three years after the twin shocks of President Trump's triumph in the Republican primaries and the narrow win for "Leave" in the Brexit referendum, the evidence has never been stronger that the world has entered an era of anti-liberalism. Later this week, voters across Europe go to the polls to vote in EU parliamentary elections that could deliver a quarter or more of the seats to the continent's right-wing populists and nationalists. Meanwhile, exit polls in India suggest that Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist party will win re-election when results are announced on May 23.

Rat-infested piles of rotting garbage left uncollected by the city of Los Angeles, even after promises to clean it up, are fueling concerns about a new epidemic after last year's record number of flea-borne typhus cases. Even the city's most notorious trash pile, located between downtown LA's busy Fashion and Produce districts, continues to be a magnet for rats after it was cleaned up months ago. The rodents can carry typhus-infected fleas, which can spread the disease to humans through bacteria rubbed into the eyes or cuts and scrapes on the skin, resulting in severe flu-like symptoms.

Democratic leaders in Congress proved the perils of “jumping the shark” this month. The phrase comes from the 1977 episode of the television comedy “Happy Days” in which one of its leading characters, the “Fonz,” jumped over a shark in a water skiing stunt in swim trunks along with his signature leather jacket. That moment was viewed as a desperate ratings stunt by a dying television series struggling to keep viewers engaged. Today, the phrase has come to define similar instances of desperation. With the many overhyped political moments of the last two years, it is not clear when the partisan shark jump occurred. Soon after the appointment of special counsel

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
