People are not amused.

As the Russian invasion of Ukraine was initiated, there are many who are focusing on evacuating from Ukraine. While the Ukrainians are stuck debating what options they have amid the invasion, John Kerr has been expressing his concerns that Russia’s war would turn the attention of the world away from the climate crisis and would result in large amounts of emissions, which could further the negative footprint we are leaving on the planet.

IN a statement he said “I’m concerned about Ukraine because of the people of Ukraine and because of the principles that are at risk, in terms of international law and trying to change boundaries of international law by force,” further adding “I thought we lived in a world that had said no to that kind of activity. And I hope diplomacy will win.”

Kerry is the U.S. special presidential envoy for climate and as such climate topics are one of his primary concerns as he noted the invasion “Could have a profound negative impact on the climate obviously. You have a war and obviously, you’re going to have massive emissions consequences to the war. But equally important, you’re going to lose people’s focus, you’re going to lose certainly big countries because they will be diverted and I think it could have a damaging impact,” he continued. “So, you know, I think hopefully President Putin would realize that in the northern part of his country, they used to live on 66% of the nation that was over frozen land.”

While Kerry preaches about climate change and the impact the war may have on the climate crisis there are others who have criticized Kerry’s impact and footprint.

The attack on Ukraine has so far hit a number of cities and bases, and many civilians have been attempting to flee. This is the biggest attack between European nations since World War II. According to the reports from the Ukrainian government, the Russian troops crossed the border in a “full-scale war.”
