Fox News contributor Karl Rove on “America’s Newsroom” Thursday questioned President Biden’s climate czar John Kerry’s decency after the official suggested the climate crisis was worse than the Russia-Ukraine war.

If you build pipelines, all of these things will help us reduce our dependency on foreign sources of oil.
