In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

Kerry family jet emitted 116 metric tons of carbon over past 12 months

Yes, that is a lot. Honestly, is flying first class so uncomfortable? Isn’t that a reasonable alternative if you are going to be complaining about other people’s carbon footprints?

He probably drives an electric vehicle to the airfield.

According to Fox News:

The plane registered to U.S. Special Envoy on Climate John Kerry’s family emitted as much carbon as around 36 typical passenger cars would in a year.

Flight logs obtained via aviation data firm FlightAware show that the Kerry family’s Gulfstream GIV-SP spent around 22 hours and 22 minutes in the air over the past year.

Using Paramount Business Jets emissions calculator, Fox News found that Kerry’s planed accumulated an estimated 166 metric tons of carbon between trips dating from Feb. 9, 2020, to Jan. 10, 2021.

For comparison, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that the typical passenger vehicle emits about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. That calculation assumed a car that drives around 11,500 miles per year with a fuel economy of about 22.0 miles per gallon.

  1. It’s MrsKerry (the woman with 10 names) who brings the money and privilege to the Kerry household.
    As the widow of the late PA Senator John Heinz she inherited a ton of the Heinz fortune (the ketchup people). Born into privilege, married privilege, she’s not about to change her lifestyle.
    FYI ; SenHeinz was a Repub.

  2. Stories like this not covered and/or buried by the MSM is why Democrats get and maintain power. Neither political party is bringing down America, rather it’s the MSM not holding ALL politicians feet to the fire. I’m amazed at what my two liberal sisters (who are wonderful people!) don’t know because they only read/watch MSM.

    1. “The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.”
      ~Winston Churchill

      I think Churchill was hinting at the ignorance of average voters…and I blame today’s shallow-biased MSM for that ignorance.

      1. The “ignorance” of the average voter is something that our Founding Fathers took into consideration. That is why they did not establish a Democracy but a Republic. Even in the Republican Government they established, our Founding Fathers, because of the “ignorance” of the average voter, limited voters to only electing their local Representative to the House of Representatives. They established an electoral college to elect the President and designated State legislators to elect Senators. Unfortunately, over the years, Congress has made changes so that now the President and Senators, in addition to Representatives, are elected by the average voter. Of course, if ballots are manipulated as what happened in NOV 2020, even voters don’t decide election results.
