Climate Wonk Kerry Pushes Green Energy, Says Putin Can’t Exploit Wind, Sun
Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry on Wednesday pushed renewable offshore energy, claiming that Russian President Vladimir Putin cannot manipulate the wind and sun.
“Now is the time to accelerate the transition to an independent and a clean energy future. President Putin cannot control the power of the wind or the sun,” Kerry said at the Our Oceans conference on the pacific island of Palau, according to Reuters. [bold, links added]
Kerry, a global-warming activist who flies gas-guzzling jets, said Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is just one more reason the island nation should substitute fossil fuels with more expensive green energy.
Kerry suggested Putin has raised the price of gas through his war in Ukraine, meanwhile, Kerry made no mention of the United States’ war on American energy.
Soaring gas prices have fueled inflation. Gas prices increased about $1.00 before Putin invaded Ukraine. Since the invasion, gas prices have increased by about 70 cents.
The White House has continually claimed the price hikes in the U.S. are a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and have nothing to do with President Biden’s war on American energy independence.
Jason Furman, a professor at Harvard and a Senior Fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, shared charts on Twitter showing U.S. inflation to be “much higher” than that seen in the “Euro area”:
The handoff from goods to services inflation continues. In February core services inflation was higher than durable goods inflation for the first time in nearly a year. In March services inflation edged up but only a little and we saw goods deflation. Good if it continues. pic.twitter.com/hAzJ1VaTjB

As a result, American oil production is down from 2019, the year before the pandemic. Hard numbers suggest 2022 oil production is 12 million barrels per day, or eight percent less than in 2019.
Biden has made it increasingly more difficult for oil companies to gain financing to drill on private lands.
