President Donald Trump criticized U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry for his newly confirmed “militant” stance against coal energy.
President Trump declared that nuclear global warming is the only global warming he is concerned about.
During his interview with Sean Hannity Tuesday night, President Trump stated, “We have to fire up our factories. Wind is not going to fire up our factories.”
“I like solar from a concept standpoint, but it’s massively expensive. And We can’t allow China to build a factory a week and then do nothing about it,” he added.
Then he concluded, “The only global warming we should be thinking about and worrying about because it could happen tomorrow is nuclear global warming.”
According to Mediaite, Kerry blamed the “climate crisis” for the health crisis during the 28th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) or COP28 last week.
He described “sounding the alarm bell” and stated that he is “getting more and more militant” regarding coal energy.
Tucker Carlson reported on the recent comments and called Kerry a “half-demented 80-year-old yelling about things he doesn’t understand.”
He stated that China “burns more coal each year than the rest of the world combined, and that will not change.”
He also noted that 80 percent of India’s electricity is now coal-powered and that Indonesia has also increased its coal energy by 33 percent.
As other more populated nations increased their coal energy production, Carlson mocked Kerry’s plan to decrease it.
He also noted, “Burning coal for electricity bears little resemblance to what it used to look like. There are fairly sophisticated emissions scrubbers. It’s not quite as bad as it once was for the air.”
The Institute for Energy Research confirmed Carlson’s claims that coal power has become more efficient.
They state on their website, “The popular misconception that our air quality is getting worse is wrong, as shown by EPA’s air quality data.”
“Today’s coal-fired electricity generating plants produce more power with less emissions of criteria pollutants than ever before,” they add.
The Institute for Energy Research reported that nitrogen dioxide emissions have been reduced by 83 percent and sulfur dioxide has been reduced by 98 percent. In addition, CO2 emissions at all coal plant factories are reportedly lower than EPA regulations as well.
Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed in October that his nation successfully tested an experimental nuclear-powered cruise missile, per the Associated Press.
Just Tuesday, The Sun reported that Putin toured a mock bunker and viewed an atomic explosion presented at a Cold War exhibition and viewed the “big red button.”
