The hypocrisy of the left when it comes to being environmentally correct is comical.
John Kerry got called out by several Republicans on social media after a video of him saying “Flying private is the only way for a guy like me” went viral.
Kerry made the statements on his way to accept a climate activist award.
How ironic is that?

U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy roasted Kerry in a tweet saying “I’m not sure flying across the world in a private jet while simultaneously trying to put the workers who supply your fuel out of a job is a winning strategy as climate czar.”
“Someone like me” LOLOLOL
So out of touch. A little over a year ago I sat behind Pelosi on a commercial flight (in first class; the secret service guys were in coach). If Nancy can fly commercial, you can!

Fox News covered Kerry’s hypocrisy:
Several Republican lawmakers ripped Biden administration climate czar John Kerry on Wednesday after Fox News reported the former secretary of state flew on a private jet in 2019 to accept an award for climate leadership in Iceland.
Kerry flew private to accept the Arctic Circle award for bring “a consistent voice pressuring the American authorities to commit to tackle environmental matters,” Icelandic outlet RUV reported. GOP critics argued Kerry’s actions did not match his words on the subject of climate change.
See what the New York Post had to say:
President Biden’s new climate czar John Kerry took a gas-guzzling private jet to collect a climate change leadership award in Iceland in 2019, defending his mode of transport as “the only choice for someone like me.”
The former secretary of state, who is now Biden’s climate change envoy, defended his decidedly un-green choice of transportation when criticized by local media and the Arctic Circle award organizers, arrogantly claiming he had no other option.
“If you offset your carbon, it’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle,” Kerry said in an interview with local outlet RUV, unearthed by Fox News on Wednesday.
It seems like even the elites don’t follow their climate change manifesto, why should we?
