John Kerry: THIS is Unsustainable?!

John Kerry

( – Because he can’t stand being out of the news for long and seemingly feels he must always lecture Americans, US special climate envoy John Kerry just declared that a world population of close to 10 billion people towards the middle of the 21st century would be “unsustainable.”

Kerry, a former Democrat US Secretary of State under Barack Obama, told AFP that he feared the prospects of a world population of 9.7 billion by 2050, as per UN projections.

In November 2022, the global population surpassed 8 billion, more than triple what it was in 1950.

“I don’t think it’s sustainable, personally. We need to figure out how we’re going to deal with the issue of sustainability and the numbers of people we’re trying to take care of on the planet,” Kerry stated, as cited by Breitbart News.

He pointed to Africa as an example of unsustainable population growth that pressures food supply chains.

“I’ve been to a number of African countries where they’re very proud of their increased birth rate but the fact is, it’s unsustainable for life today, let alone when you add the future numbers,” Kerry said.

“I’m not recommending the population go down. I think we have the life we have on the planet. And we have to respect life and we could do it in so many better ways than we’re doing now,” he added.

“There is a lot of research being done now that will change both the way meat is produced, cattle are herded and fed. Research is being done that actually reduces the amount of methane,” elaborated the 79-year-old.

The report notes that supporters of behavioral change to achieve sustainability have demanded eating less and embracing alternatives.

“We don’t know some of the answers. But I guarantee you that the United States of America is not only setting a goal but is moving rapidly on track to reduce all of our emissions, become carbon-free in the power sector by 2035, and to do what other countries are doing also, Europe and elsewhere, to move as rapidly as possible to net zero,” Kerry stated.

The report notes Norway’s government already tells people to cut red meat intake to under 500 grams per week to slash carbon emissions by 4.5 million tons in 2024-2030.
