Kerry says climate change is synonymous with terrorism

Sunday, February 16. College students in Jakarta, Indonesia received an earful dose of what Vice President John Kerry believes is causing extreme weather conditions and climate change throughout the world -- saying it is “the greatest challenge of our generation,” and that carbon emissions are responsible.

While comparing climate change to poverty, terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, Kerry also directly criticized opponents who don’t believe climate change is occurring due to carbon emissions.

"We should not allow a tiny minority of shoddy scientists and science and extreme ideologues to compete with scientific fact," Kerry said in his speech at the U.S. Embassy's function in Jakarta.

Kerry’s speech in Jakarta comes just two days after president Obama’s tour of a drought stricken farm in the U.S. southern California area. While on his tour of the farm, Obama weighed in heavily on the drought situation also blaming it on climate change, and warning that; climate change has, is, and will continue to cause global damage unless affected countries “do more" to combat the carbon pollution that causes climate change.

In an effort to help Indonesia tackle its unsustainable deforestation, and support their clean-energy projects, Kerry also announced that the U.S. will fund $332 million through the Green Prosperity program. Furthermore, the U.S. promised to forgive some of Indonesia’s debt in what they are calling a debt-for-nature swap, in order to maintain their forest conservation. Kerry says, “It’s not an exaggeration to say to you that your entire way of life that you live and love is at risk"

What Kerry, Obama and the U.S. government have not mentioned is; what about geo-engineering? What about the trails known as and verified as “chemtrails,” which spread aluminum and barium into the earth’s atmosphere have to do with climate change?

Apparently something aside from carbon emissions disturbing the climate is occurring throughout the entire globe, and it could be man-made. There is more to carbon emissions changing the climate, there is something far more complicated, perhaps we need to ask more questions.
