Flashback: Kerry compares global warming to 9-11

Our new Secretary of State?

From an August 2009 John Kerry op-ed in the Huffington Post:

On August 6, 2001, President George W. Bush famously received an intelligence briefing entitled, “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” Thirty-six days later, al Qaeda terrorists did just that.

Scientists tell us we have a 10-year window — if even that — before catastrophic climate change becomes inevitable and irreversible. The threat is real, and time is not on our side…

Read the entire op-ed.

  1. No,no. They said that about President Reagan – and look what he achieved – Peace in our Time. He de-balled the Russians, turned Russian missiles into plough-shares (literally), what? It’s all very Biblical, you know. (Or Qur’anic if you wish.)

  2. I can’t wait to see Kerry as Sec of State. He is a total gaff machine, and comparing climate change to 911 is just the beginning. Wahoo!

    This is going to be so much fun. Lol!!

  3. I am sure that Mr Kerry will give it all away to the poor, when he re-reads his scriptures. Don’t worry about that. He and others like will solve the world’s problems through their charity – wont they?

  4. Putting a man whose primary if not sole skilll and instinct is histrionics at head of State. Sounds about right for this administration. The Mayans may have been right if we misinterpreted 12/21 to mean a quick end and not a long slow grind to apocalypse.

    I wonder if they’d even blush if someone pointed out the fact that Dick Cheney is far more principled, logical, measured in his public statements, and experienced in affairs of state than this male Ketchup Concubine.

  5. Question we won’t hear from a Republican senator at Kerry’s confirmation hearing:

    “Mr. Kerry, how much more money do you have than Mitt Romney?”

  6. Well, Senator Kerry is a reasonable man I’m sure – and he wont forget the ten year bit. Things are still OK. He knows that – except the poor – who are working for 6 bucks an hour (or is it five?). – And that’s not even AUSTRALIAN dollars.

  7. “Scientists tell us we have a 10-year window — if even that — before catastrophic climate change becomes inevitable and irreversible.”

    Yep, they told us that 20 years ago.
