Climate Change Presidential Envoy John Kerry Promises No US Coal by 2030

Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry promised the U.S. will eliminate all coal-fired power plants by 2030 at the United Nations COP26 conference on climate change being held in Glasgow, Scotland.

During a Bloomberg interview, Kerry said, “By 2030 in the United States, we won’t have coal.”

Kerry also said, “We’re saying we are going to be carbon free in the power sector by 2035.”

Energy writer Alex Epstein slammed Kerry over his comments on coal.

Kerry also attacked methane emissions.

Kerry promoted the U.S. joining an international solar energy alliance.

Predictably, Kerry was criticized for living a lifestyle that does not adhere to his concerns over climate change.

The idea of banning coal-fired electricity, a cheap and reliable form of energy, was always a dream of Democrats like Kerry.

Former President Obama promised to bankrupt utilities that used coal and Hillary Clinton promised to end coal mining jobs. Now President Biden is carrying on with this agenda via Kerry at COP26.

Banning coal will punish Americans with high electricity prices and make the U.S. more reliant on renewable forms of energy which are unreliable.

But none of that matters to elites like Kerry because he can afford electricity at any price while he lives a life of the wealthy and famous.
