Rather than attempt to deal with an international situation that is spinning out of control due to the lack of American leadership, Hanoi John Kerry has devoted himself to clownishly hyping the moribund global warming hoax. Even with the media behind him, the public has to bury its head deeply in the sand not to be aware that his hysterical pronouncements are easily refutable lies. For example:
Secretary of State John Kerry told an audience in Mexico on Wednesday that temperatures in Europe and in Vietnam were “unprecedented” and broke “every record that’s ever been seen.”
Meanwhile, back in factual reality,
Wednesday was a hot day in Vietnam, with temperatures rising at their highest to 36 degrees celsius (96.8°F) at Tan Son Nhut international airport in Ho Chi Minh City. But according to Vietnam’s foreign ministry, the highest temperature recorded in May is 39°C (102.2°F) in Ho Chi Minh City, and 42°C (107.6°F) in Hanoi. The Hanoi record was registered in 1926.
You would think Hanoi John would be an expert in Southeast Asian weather. He was only there for a few months, but the experience of being in Cambodia on illicit orders from evil America while Nixon was President in 1968 was “seared” into his memory. (Nixon took office in 1969.)
As for Europe,
The hottest places in Europe in the heat of the day on Wednesday, according to weatheronline.co.uk included parts of Russia, Germany, central Italy and southern Turkey, all in the 29-32°C (84-89°F) range.
The highest temperature ever recorded in European Russia was 44°C (111.2°F) in 2010; in Germany was 40.2°C (104.4°F) in 1983 and 2003; in Italy was 48.5°C (119.3°F) in 1999; and in Turkey was 48.8°C (119.8°F) in 1993.
Temperatures have been cooling. But that didn’t prevent Kerry from intoning that “we are risking nothing less than the future of the entire planet” by not crushing the economy under deliberately excessive taxation and regulation in the name of this debunked hoax.
Liberals tacitly admitted global warming is not happening by changing the name of it to “climate change,” reasoning that since the climate always changes, they can’t be proven wrong — as they have been with all of their ideologically driven climate predictions. Unfortunately for them, the peasants turned out to be smart enough to also be aware that the climate always changes, so now they need to change the name again to something more ominous. “Climate chaos” has been floated, but has a regrettable tendency to make people snigger.
Now at last we really do have a climate crisis, that being the urgent need to come up with a name for the nonexistent crisis. The People’s Cube tries to help out:
