Secretary of State John Kerry traveled to Jakarta, Indonesia (no doubt on a carbon-spewing airplane) and mocked and belittled those who do not believe in the religion of global warming. He also threw in some fear mongering for good measure.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday called climate change perhaps the world’s ‘‘most fearsome’’ destructive weapon and mocked those who deny its existence or question its causes, comparing them to people who insist the Earth is flat.

He outlined a litany of recent weather disasters, particularly flooding and typhoons in Asia, and their impact on commerce, agriculture, fishing and daily living conditions for billions of people. ‘‘This city, this country, this region, is really on the front lines of climate change,’’ Kerry said. ‘‘It’s not an exaggeration to say that your entire way of life here is at risk.’’ He added: ‘‘In a sense, climate change can now be considered the world’s largest weapon of mass destruction, perhaps even, the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.’’
