John Kerry’s Last Day: A Legacy of Failure and Secrecy

John Kerry’s Last Day: A Legacy of Failure and Secrecy

March 6, 2024

Today marks the last day in office for Climate Czar John Kerry. Appointed by President Biden at the beginning of his term, Kerry was the first person to serve as leader in the office created without Congressional authorization. During his tenure, Kerry has traveled the world pushing President Biden’s climate agenda while refusing to disclose the budget, staff, or the groups influencing the secret office. While Kerry worked for President Biden, the United States endured the highest gasoline prices and inflation not seen since the early 1980s.

The Hill reports, 

“Climate envoy John Kerry will be leaving his Biden administration role this week.

Wednesday will be his last day as the special presidential envoy for climate, a spokesperson confirmed to The Hill. The spokesperson declined to provide additional information on Kerry’s next steps.”

Last month, Power The Future filed a lawsuit against Kerry’s office over failure to disclose basic information about his workings as Climate Czar. President Biden has since appointed political operative John Podesta to replace Kerry. 

“John Kerry may be smiling as he rides his private jet into the sunset, but the American people are still paying the real costs of his failure,” said Daniel Turner, Founder and Executive Director for Power The Future. “For over three years, Kerry scoffed at every single attempt to bring accountability to his secret office while traveling the world to make climate deals the American people don’t want. There’s no doubt Kerry is excited for the next chapter of his life which will likely include big green paychecks and more elitist conferences.”
