From Fox News:
In total, the private jet tied to President Biden’s point person in the effort to lower greenhouse gas emissions took 16 flights since January — raising questions about how much his family contributed to the problem.
Many of these flights occurred within Massachusetts, including Martha’s Vineyard and Boston International Airport. At least two flights took place between Massachusetts and New Jersey.
A spokesperson for Kerry told Fox News: “Secretary Kerry travels commercially or via military air in his role as Special Presidential Envoy for Climate.”
Earlier this year, footage surfaced in which Kerry defended flying via private jet to receive an environmental award in Iceland in 2019. He called flying private “the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle.”
Since those reports, Kerry has remained relatively quiet about criticism that his family’s travel habits are hypocritical. When Kerry appeared before Congress in May, he told a House committee that he needed to leave at a certain point as he was flying commercial. Other reporting indicates he’s been using commercial flights.
It’s unclear who chartered the flights. While Kerry was on an international trip in April, flight data showed that his jet traveled to Idaho from Boston. It’s unclear what the trip was for but the Idaho Press reported last year that he and his wife, Teresa, have been part-time residents in the nearby Sun Valley for decades.
Some of the 2021 flight logs showed multiple trips between Massachusetts and Idaho. A handful of trips involved flights to California.
Private jets have been estimated to emit upward of 40 times as much carbon per passenger as commercial flights.

APOCALYPSE 2030: Kerry Says Humanity Has ‘Nine Years Left’ to Solve Climate Crisis, ‘No Room for B.S.’
‘Special Presidential Envoy John Kerry’ confirmed Friday that the USA has rejoined the Paris Climate agreement; saying it’s “good to be back.”
“Well, the scientists told us three years ago we have 12 years to avert the worst consequences of climate crisis,” Kerry responded. “We are now three years gone so we have nine years left.”
“There is no room for B.S. anymore. There’s no faking it on this one,” he added.
“Today’s the day. We’re officially back in the Paris Agreement – again part of the global climate effort. No country can fight this fight on its own. We look forward to a productive year and a successful #COP26 in Glasgow. #GoodToBeBack,” posted Kerry on social media.
The United States officially rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement Friday exactly 30 days after President Biden signed an Executive Order on global warming during his first hours inside the Oval Office.
“Climate change and science diplomacy can never again be ‘add-ons’ in our foreign policy discussions,” Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said in the statement. “Addressing the real threats from climate change and listening to our scientists is at the center of our domestic and foreign policy priorities.”

“The Paris Agreement is an unprecedented framework for global action. We know because we helped design it and make it a reality. Its purpose is both simple and expansive: to help us all avoid catastrophic planetary warming and to build resilience around the world to the impacts from climate change we already see,” added the statement.
