Salem, NH - Granite State Small Businessman Chuck Morse released the following statement calling for John Kerry's resignation as the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate following reports of his private jet's massive carbon emissions:

“We need to end the facade that the Federal Government cares at all about our environment. Joe Biden and Maggie Hassan need to demand John Kerry’s immediate resignation. He lectures and heckles Americans about the need to control their “carbon footprint” and emission levels, yet his own private jet has emitted 300 metric tons of carbon in two years, more carbon than the average Granite Stater would emit in 30 years. Make no mistake - he's jet setting all over the world going from cocktail party to cocktail party to condemn the average American for living their lives while letting massive polluters in China off the hook. The Biden-Hassan team in Washington is full of double-standards - one set of rules for the governing elite and one set of rules for regular Americans. We need to send someone to Washington that’s going to fight for Granite Staters and call out this hypocrisy, and when I’m the 51st vote in the U.S. Senate I’ll be that fighter.”
