Kerry: Climate Change ‘As Dangerous’ as Iran’s Nukes and Possibility of War By Patrick Goodenough August 2, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – The situation facing the planet because of climate change is “as dangerous” as the possibility of war over Iran’s nuclear activities, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) told the U.S. Senate on Wednesday.

Delivering what his office described as “a major address and current assessment of the global climate change challenge,” Kerry acknowledged and bemoaned the success of those who question the notion of human-induced global warming. He compared skeptics to flat-earthers and decried what he called a “concerted assault on reason.”

“I believe that the situation we face, Mr. President, is as dangerous as any of the sort of real crises that we talk about – today we had a hearing in the Foreign Relations Committee on the subject of Syria, and we all know what’s happening with respect to Iran, and nuclear weapons and the possibility even of a war,” Kerry said.

“Well, this issue [climate change] actually is of as significant a level of importance, because it affects life itself on the planet,” he said.

Kerry said the term climate change had become “an unusable word in American politics.”

“Climate change, over the last few years, has regrettably lost credibility in the eyes and ears of the American people, because of a concerted campaign of disinformation – a concerted campaign to brand the concept as somehow slightly out of the mainstream of American political thinking.”

“I have to say it’s been a remarkably effective campaign, you can’t sit here and say it hasn’t worked,” Kerry conceded. “Every opportunity to cast a pall on facts with some kind of cockamamie theory has been taken advantage of.....

It would be laughable if it weren’t so sad.

Sign that man up for Secreatary of State!

Sad that the fact he’s an out and out traitor while in uniform and during wartime is not even discussed.

Just reading the excerpt I see a remarkable display of Leftist projection if I’ve ever seen it.

And to think this man was considered a legitimate candidate for President of the United States. But then again, look at who we have in that position now.

I don’t blame Kerry for being an idiot; he was probably born and raised to be an idiot. I do blame the majority of idiot Massachussetts voters who put him in a position of responsibility he should not have. It’s like putting the village idiot in charge of the power plant. Who would think that’s a good idea?

These global warming fools might as well drop it. My local weather guy showed a map of global temps. Right now a large part of the U.S. is warmer than normal, but THE REST OF THE WORLD was colored in blues and greens, meaning lower temps than normal.

And Kerry gets to the Senate everyday... on public transportation?

And while in DC Kerry lives... with how many other senators to save resources?

And Kerry has how many houses... totaling how many thousands of square feet?

Traitor Kerry: “.....they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan....... “

Neither "climate-change" nor Iranian nukes would be as dangerous to our Nation as a Kerry Presidency. Thank you, Swifties!

“Climate change” isn’t nearly as dangerous as the left’s plans to “fight” it.

There was a concerted campaign of disinformation, all right, but it came from the Warmists, and the American people have now caught on.

So, I wonder if John Effing Kerry (who “served” in Vietnam) things the Viet Cong were as threatening as “global warming.”

Oh, wait... engaging the VC was for the “grunts,” not someone the pedigree of Kerry (who “served” in Vietnam).
