Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Biden’s climate czar & private jet lover John Kerry says US pivot from fossil fuel will create ‘many good-paying jobs in Mexico’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Kerry, US President Joe Biden’s special climate envoy, has argued that Mexico would profit if Biden accomplishes his far-reaching goal to phase out gasoline-powered vehicles.
“Mexico's industrial base, already deeply integrated with the rest of North America, absolutely stands to benefit from the energy transition,” Kerry claimed on Monday after meeting with Mexico’s President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
“There are going to be a lot of good-paying jobs here in Mexico because of the connection already of the automobile industry and our two countries," he went on to say.
While pushing Biden’s climate agenda, Kerry has courted widespread controversy as his personal behavior comes in stark contrast to his climate rhetoric, such as taking a private jet to receive an environmental award, while his own family’s fuel-guzzling private jet has been spotted traversing the skies multiple times a week, according to Flight Aware data. In January, Kerry came under fire after suggesting that energy workers that would be laid off by Biden’s environmental policies could find a living making “solar panels.”
Since he came to power, Biden has led a crusade against gas-powered cars, tightening pollution standards and demanding that electric cars make up at least half of all new US vehicle sales by 2030. His $174 billion proposal will see some $100 billion spent to encourage Americans to invest in electric vehicles, including through offering tax credits and creating a network of charging stations across the country. Despite its far-reaching nature, however, some climate activists have decried Biden’s plan to transition to “green energy” as underwhelming at best.
