Former failed presidential contender John Kerry told globalist elites at the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting that the only way to top global warming is “money, money, money.”
Kerry, the US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, argued the world is not acting with enough urgency to prevent a “climate crisis” from occurring.
The aging Democrat began his remarks by questioning how “allegedly wise adult humans” such as CEOs and Senators could “ignore our science and want to ignore mathematics and want to ignore physics and somehow cannot bring themselves to do what we need to do.”
Kerry, a billionaire and married into the wealthy Heinz family, praised those in attendance of the meeting, saying how “extraordinary that we select human beings… are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet.”
“I mean, it’s so almost extraterrestrial to think about quote’ saving the planet,” Kerry said.
“If you said that to most people, they think you’re just a crazy tree-hugging Lefty liberal do-good… but really that’s where we are,” he added.
However, Kerry said that the only way to prevent the Earth from warming by more than 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) was more money from governments and the private sector.

“So how do we get there? Well the lesson I’ve learned in the last years and I learned it as Secretary, and I’ve learned it since, reinforced in spades is money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money,” he said.
“I’m sorry to say that, I mean yes technology, yes exciting new initiatives, yes, organizing winning races politically…but we have to go further,” he added.
“We don’t have time folks to be cobbling together bespoke deals here, there and everywhere. We have to do it on a massive basis and the key to that one is philanthropy,” Kerry added.
“It’s not the only key, we need governments to put Federal public money into it,” Kerry urged.
Although Kerry admitted that previous United Nations climate change summits had fallen short of his estimation, he said he believes that a World War II-style effort would help limit potential warming to 1.5°C
“We knew that in order to win the war… we had to organize ourselves to take control of the skies and take control of the seas and be able to smash the battlements,” he said.
John Kerry’s remarks came as thousands of private jets descended upon the Swiss village, a spectacle that even the most prominent climate change advocate would find hard to stomach.
According to estimates, emissions from the private jets from the Davos event in 2021 were equivalent to running 350,000 average cars per week.
