FIRST ON FOX: Major environmental organizations are quietly playing a key role in the Biden administration’s foreign policy efforts, according to emails reviewed by Fox News Digital.
The emails underscore the influence that left-wing environmentalists have on the Biden administration through Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry’s office.
On multiple occasions since President Biden took office nearly 20 months ago, green groups have acted as an apparent go-between for the administration on key international climate negotiations, according to emails obtained in an information request by watchdog group Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT) and shared with Fox News Digital.
The emails show correspondence between the environmental groups and Jesse Young, a senior adviser in Kerry’s office. They offer a rare peek into Kerry’s office, which has largely been tight-lipped about its internal operations.
“The Department of State’s leadership in combatting the global climate crisis is supported by diplomats, negotiators, and subject matter experts with diverse backgrounds and decades of knowledge and experience from the public sector, academia, NGOs, and the private sector,” a State Department spokesperson told Fox News Digital.
