White House Names John Podesta as U.S. Climate Envoy

White House adviser John Podesta has been tapped to be the top U.S. climate diplomat when John Kerry steps down this spring.

White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients said in a written statement:

“We need to keep meeting the gravity of this moment, and there is no one better than John Podesta to make sure we do.”

“John has — and will continue to be — at the helm of driving the implementation of the most significant climate law in history,” Zients added.

Kerry was a key figure in livering the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement as Secretary of State under then-President Barack Obama.

Kerry has since traveled all over the globe in gas-guzzling private jets to lecture on carbon footprints and climate change.

Last December, Kerry called for coal plants to be shut down worldwide during a speech at the COP28 climate conference in Dubai.

During the event, Kerry said he was 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.

Kerry also praised the Biden administration’s announcement that it was sending a whopping 3 billion in U.S. taxpayer funds to the UN flagship Green Climate Fund (GCF).

“The GCF has established a strong track record of enabling countries to accelerate the energy transition, assisting communities around the world in building resilience to the impacts of the climate crisis, and mobilizing significant private capital for climate action,” Kerry said as he cheered the cash largesse funded by U.S. taxpayers.

Kerry served as U.S. climate diplomat for three years under Biden.

Last month, the 80-year-old climate doomer told his staff he is putting all his efforts into getting Biden back into the White House.

According to sources, Kerry will remain on his post until the end of winter or early spring.

He congratulated Podesta on his new post in a post on X:

“We’ve made historic progress these last three years and I know that, in his new role as Biden’s senior adviser for international climate policy, John Podesta will continue to grow the momentum from Glasgow, Sharm el-Sheikh and Dubai.”

Podesta, who joined the Biden administration in September 2022, oversees Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act, which has devoted billions of dollars to push the nation into clean energy, including wind and solar.

Podesta served as a top climate adviser to former President Obama and was also involved in negotiations that resulted in the Paris Climate Accord.

Podesta also chaired Hillary Clinton’s doomed 2016 presidential campaign and served as White House chief of staff under former President Bill Clinton.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
