I guess maybe he’s witnessed this calamity from up close on his $7 million luxury yacht that he docks in Rhode Island to skip on Massachusetts taxes.

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) on Tuesday said there’s a “calculated campaign of disinformation” on climate change that has stalled action on the issue and endangered the country.

“We are living through a story of disgraceful denial, back-pedaling and delay that has brought us perilously close to a climate change catastrophe,” Kerry said.

The Massachusetts senator’s lengthy floor speech called for the public to be “pounding on the doors of Congress” to act, and cataloged global perils such as drought, floods, wildfires, threatened coastlines, disease risks and more, noting “the danger we face could not be more real.”

“In the United States, a calculated campaign of disinformation has steadily beaten back the consensus momentum for action on climate change and replaced it with timidity by proponents in the face of millions of dollars of phony, contrived ‘talking points,’ illogical and wholly unscientific propositions and a general scorn for the truth wrapped in false threats about job loss and tax increases,” Kerry said.

The hysteria we face could not be more real!

    Actually, it was hearing about Al Gore using seven times more power than the average family, combined with Climate change conferences in Tahiti that screwed the pooch.
