President Biden’s climate czar John Kerry has a family jet despite the fact that such planes are notoriously bad for the environment.
Kerry even took a private jet to Iceland in 2019 to receive the Arctic Circle Award for Climate Leadership.
Kerry defended her heavily polluted ride at the time, calling it “the only choice for someone like me who travels the world to win this battle” in an interview obtained by Fox News.
