Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson destroyed Joe Biden’s climate Czar, John Kerry, with some “facts” about climate change.
On Monday night’s episode, Carlson did not hold back.
“Another half-demented 80-year-old yelling about things he doesn’t understand. These are our leaders. They don’t care about our future because they don’t have one of their own,” he said.
“There might be no one in the country who cares less about the future of the United States than climate czar John Kerry who turns 80 next week,” Tucker said.
“Kerry turned up at a conference in the Middle East the other day and announced that at his advanced age, he’s become a “militant” of coal-fired electricity plants,” Tucker added.

Journalist Michael Shellenberger joined Tucker to discuss the global effort to force the reduction of carbon emissions in countries around the world.
Shellenberger correctly pointed out that China and India have increased their coal usage, while the US is forced to rely on wind and solar power.
“You can’t maintain civilization without cheap energy,” Shellenberger said.
“The attack on cheap energy is truly an attack on modern civilization, and it should frighten us, and we should be aware of it and alive to it.”
Earlier this week, Kerry said coal plants should not be permitted “anywhere in the world” during a speech at the COP28 climate conference in Dubai.
Regarding climate policies, Kerry said he is becoming “more and more” militant because he claims people are avoiding responsibility and not doing what they are told.
“We don’t need that necessarily to tell us we ought to be transitioning out of coal,” Kerry said.
“There shouldn’t be any more coal power plants permitted anywhere in the world.”
“That’s how you can do something for health. And the reality is that we’re not doing it,” he added.
Coal plant closures and potential blackouts
Kerry’s remarks came just a week after a power grid operator in the mid-Atlantic warned that the planned shutdown of a coal-fired power plant could affect the electrical supply to millions of Americans, causing a total blackout.
