Wait until you hear what John Kerry said about why he needs a private jet to travel to Iceland to accept a CLIMATE AWARD!
Reporter: On that issue of pollution, I understand that you came here [Iceland] with a private jet. Is that an environmental way to travel if you offset your carbon?
John Kerry: It’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle. I negotiated the Paris Accords for the United States. I’ve been involved in this fight for years. I negotiated with President Xi to bring President Xi to the table so we could get Paris [climate accord]. And I believe the time it takes me to get somewhere I can’t sail across the ocean. I have to fly to meet with people and get things done. But what I’m doing almost full time is working to win the battle of climate change. And in the end, if I offset and contribute my life to do this, I’m not going to be put on the defensive.
