John Kerry's bipolar day

Irony is apparently lost on Secretary of State John Kerry.  Responding to the U.N.'s  Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, Kerry said

'The bottom line is that our planet is warming due to human actions, the damage is already visible, and the challenge requires ambitious, decisive and immediate action,


Democrat Kerry said on Sunday that not only is the climate warming, the world is on its way to 'a large scale disaster.'

'The longer we are stuck in a debate over ideology and politics, the more the costs of inaction grow and grow,' the Obama official said in an official government statement. 

'Those who choose to ignore or dispute the science so clearly laid out in this report do so at great risk for all of us and for our kids and grandkids,' he continued. 

The UN report warned 'the atmosphere and ocean have warmed, the amounts of snow and ice have diminished, and sea level has risen.'

'It is very likely that heat waves will occur more often and last longer, and that extreme precipitation events will become more intense and frequent in many regions,' it went on to say.

Kerry, who has equated the importance of acting to slow down global climate change with the necessity of ending terrorism, proclaimed on Sunday that 'greenhouse gas emissions from human activity are higher than ever, and we're seeing more and more extreme weather and climate events.'

That includes storms, heat waves and downpours, he said. And 'it's not a coincidence.' 

'With this report, we have yet another round of authoritative, peer-reviewed science to prove it,' he asserted.

After praising this "authoritative, peer-reviewed science" as proof of global warming, Kerry stepped outside to attend a Boston Patriots game in his hometown, where:

... temperatures were dropping in New England and snow began to blanket the north east, leading to the most snow fall on record for Nov. 2 in the Bay State in 120 years.


The local temperature fell to 36 degrees that morning and snow and wind blasted the state.


Outdoors, average Patriots fans braved the 40 degree weather and 13 mile an hour winds that made the temperature feel like a chilly 32 degrees Fahrenheit to see their team play.

Perhaps Kerry didn't notice the snow because he was so engrossed in reading the report.  And also he watched the game in the indoor, heated private box of the Patriots' owner, Robert Kraft.
