One reason you can’t debate global-warming advocates on the merits of their case is because their arguments are impossibly over the top, filled with exaggerated claims of impending doom and catastrophe.

When someone says to you that the world is going to end, how can you answer that rationally?

We’re used to it by now, of course. Calling climate realists “Nazis” and comparing them to the Klu Klux Klan is just part of everyday conversation with these people. If you challenge them on a point of logic or science, they never respond directly. Instead, they personalize their rejoinder by accusing you of being anti-science — or worse.

Secretary of State John Kerry is now on what is being called a “climate change blitz” — a diplomatic full-court press to talk up global warming and the catastrophe that is just around the corner.

The Hill reports:

“When I think about the array … of global threats, think about this: terrorism, epidemics, poverty, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction — all challenges that know no borders. The reality is that climate change ranks right up there with every single one of them,” Kerry said in a speech at the American Center in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The speech begins a climate blitz by Kerry, who said he will “engage in a series of public and private discussions on the urgency of addressing climate change — particularly on the national security implications and the economic opportunities.”

Kerry pledged to put climate change front and center in all U.S. diplomatic efforts. As of this week, Kerry said he will instruct all chiefs of missions at U.S. embassies across the globe to “make climate change a top priority and use all the tools of diplomacy that they have at their disposal.”

Adding weight to his message, Kerry went so far as to call the changing climate itself a weapon.

“In a sense, climate change can now be considered another weapon of mass destruction, perhaps the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction,” Kerry said.

Starting with Jakarta, Kerry plans to call on the world to tackle climate change, and his remarks painted a uphill battle for the globe in the years ahead.

“It’s not an exaggeration to say to you that the entire way of life that you live and love is at risk,” Kerry said to Jakarta, which he said is on the front line of the climate change battle.

Offering a stark contrast to the comments flooding political talk shows in the U.S. on Sunday, Kerry made a detailed, direct argument for action.

“The science of climate change is leaping out at us like a scene from a 3-D movie,” Kerry said. “And let there be no doubt in anybody’s mind that the science is absolutely certain.”

Kerry took a jab at the climate deniers in Congress, saying that he and President Obama don’t have time to meet with the “Flat Earth Society.”

“We certainly should not allow more time to be wasted by those who want to sit around debating whose responsibility it is to deal with this threat, while we come closer and closer to the point of no return,” Kerry said.

Where to begin? Calling climate change “the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction” is loony. Not wrong, not just an exaggeration — it’s full-blown lunacy. You have to deliberately suspend belief in reality to make such a nonsensical statement. I haven’t heard any reputable scientist — even those who are climate-change believers — makes such an idiotic comparison.

What would be the effect of this Global Warming fraud and coercion, if successful? To make part of the world fools and part hypocrites; to support roguery and error all over the earth. Barack Obama and Al Gore and the Global Warming fraudsters have converted simple changes in the weather into an engine with which to try to enslave mankind to filch ever more power and wealth to themselves. They, in fact, constitute the real Anti-Scientists.

The colder it gets the more hysterical the High Priests and Money Changers of Global Warming become.

John Kerry is still the pompous hypocrite he was all those decades ago when he lied to Congress on returning from Vietnam.

Constantly traveling now (like Hillary did as SOS)...

"...in one week, just from flying from meeting to meeting, Kerry generated about two-thirds the carbon output of the average American in one year."

Re Kerry and his ilk - If they are not liars, (and they may not be) then they are extremely dimwitted. But, even if they are liars, their dimwittedness shows through with their belief that reasonably intelligent people will buy the crap they are espousing. Unfortunately, there appears to be a great number of people like Kerry.

"When I think..." - Stop. Right. There.
This boob couldn't pour catsup out of a bottle with the instructions printed on the bottom.
How about a little Benghazi/Dead ambassador investigation Mr. Secretary?

So is he talking about cold climate change like snow-on-the-pyramid climate change or is he talking about "global warming" which will allegeldy cause seawater to rise and have New York City underwater by 2100?

"...New York City underwater by 2100?"

Throw in San Francisco, and Washington DC, and you've got my support for global warming.

Like the Professor has said a zillion times, if it is such a crisis I eagerly await observing our leaders acting like it is a crisis. Mr. Kerry -- use video conferencing so that you and your entourage aren't burning gobs of jet fuel running around the planet. I also eagerly await the news release where you sold all of your homes except a modest single-family home that burns no more energy than the average American family. Until then, put up or shut up.

This is the equivalent of playing the class warfare card on a global scale, I guess. Just what expectations is Kerry setting by ginning up resentment toward advanced countries and their supposed disproportionate contribution to global warming? Oh... yeah...redistribution globally.

I'm sick of living with the psychoses of these self-annointed busybodies. They pay no price whatsoever for their cockamamie blundering theories of civil order. It must be good to be the kings...

Yes, this guy looks, walks and talks as though he's escaped from The Muppet Show. He's in Indonesia telling them Jakarta will be underwater soon. They haven't seen such a funny stand-up comedian for years.
