Kerry Issues Climate Warning: ‘There is No Planet B’

Using Kepler Telescope transit data of planet “b”, scientists predicted that a second planet “c” about the mass of Saturn orbits the distant star KOI-872.Using Kepler Telescope transit data of planet “b”, scientists predicted that a second planet “c” about the mass of Saturn orbits the distant star KOI-872.Secretary of State John Kerry continued to beat the drum on the dangers of climate change Friday, noting that “there is no Planet B.” The secretary made the remarks at the swearing-in ceremony for Ambassador-at-Large for Religious Freedom David Saperstein. He drew a religious connection to the issue of climate change, saying that “when it comes to the fundamental health of Earth, folks, we’d better stick to the Creator’s original plan.” 

Kerry said he and Saperstein had worked together on a number of issues in the past thirty years, including climate change:

Together we got behind the CHIPS legislation for children’s health care. We pushed for the proposed Workplace Religious Freedom Act, which unfortunately never passed. We were partners in the struggle to help veterans who had been affected by Agent Orange. And we have been allies in trying to awaken the world to the dangers of climate change – and let me just say that when it comes to the fundamental health of Earth, folks, we’d better stick to the Creator’s original plan, because there is no Planet B. (Applause.)

The “no Planet B” line is not original with Kerry. The Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon recently used it at September’s UN climate summit in New York where he told reporters, “There is no Plan B because we do not have planet B.” However, the “Planet B” idea predates Ban Ki-moon’s usage; there are t-shirts, a bookFacebook pages, and even a YouTube video

It’s unclear exactly where the phrase originated, but press reports first begin mentioning the phrase used on signs at climate change rallies beginning in Copenhagen in 2009.

    Eleven years ago Kerry relentlessly said he “had a plan.” Now he doesn’t. Maybe in another eleven years we won’t have John Kerry. There’s always hope.

    In the meantime john-boy can ponder that there is no greenhouse effect.

    Every time this guy speaks I hope there is a Plan B to him .
    The missing link connects religion with scary global warming and who better to show the world the way .
    Less than 750 sleeps and this group of save the world preachers will move on to the rubber chicken circuit .

      Someone, with a fair sense of humour in my opinion, has decided to put Kerry’s role as Secretary of State to better use than he is apparently able to.

      Got an email from Senator Kerry the other day informing me of the oodles of government cash just waiting to go to my bank account if I just send him all the necessary personal information on me such as would allow for complete identity theft and direct access to my bank account.

      Almost as good as the Army general in Afghanistan who needs my help to smuggle untold riches out of the country before he retires and returns to the states…

      Do I really need a /sarc tag for this?

    There [i]is[/i] a planet B! It’s the planet invented by alarmists to scare the cash out of sheeple, the planet with feedback loops and tipping points, and the planet with a God Particle called CO2.
