John Kerry: Mr. Climate By: Darren Samuelsohn and Jonathan Allen January 24, 2013 07:00 PM EST
President Barack Obamas chief global climate cop wont be stationed at EPA or on the White House staff. Hell be at the State Department.
Obamas choice of John Kerry as the nations top diplomat is the strongest signal to the international community and the smart set in Washingtons political class that the American president is truly committed to striking deals designed to save the world. Add that to his mention of climate change in his inaugural address, and its giving hopes to greens that Kerry will make climate change a key part of his portfolio as the nations top diplomat.
Kerry has spent years working on the issue in the halls of Congress and around the globe. His name was on the last real climate change legislation, a Kerry-Lieberman bill that never made it out of the Senate. Hes a regular at international conferences, once flying half way around the globe to spend a few hours on the ground during U.N.-led talks in Bali, Indonesia.
And he, like outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, will have the ability to explain the world to the Senate and the Senate to the world. In both venues, Kerry is Mr. Climate. And Obamas decision to bring the Massachusetts Democrat into the Cabinet struck some administration officials and allies as a bold statement on the presidents climate-change intentions.
Obviously he has enormous credibility. I think thats going to help, said Phil Schiliro, the former Obama White House legislative director. Combine that with the fact that the president has such a commitment to the issue and it sends a good signal.

Putting John Kerry in charge of anything, be it the State Department or a “climate change program” is like putting Dr. Mengele in charge of the Dept. of Health and Human Services.
And I’m not kidding. He’s totally incompetent but dangerous. His ego is so big that he’ll “destroy our country to save it”.
The other criteria for climate warrior is being dumber than a lump of coal so Kerry is perfect. That way he can talk about how global warming causes cold winters (in Russia this year) without his brain exploding.
Agenda 21 HACK. Al Gore II.. Hillary/Kerry 2016? YIKES!
John Kerry: Mr. Traitor.
Traitorous putz with a drunken rich spouse.
that the American president is truly committed to striking deals designed to save the world.
Putting a known traitor as SOS is proof positive that Obama is committed to striking deals that will destroy America.
