Forget about ISIS. Forget about Al-Qaida. Forget about all the savage Islamic terrorists. The air conditioners are coming. Yes, dear readers, what is even more life threatening – what you have to fear the most -- is the army of air conditioners and refrigerators. They’re out to get you. They’re going to kill you.
Do you think I’m joking? Well, I’m not joking. That’s what United States Secretary of State John Kerry warned in all seriousness while in Vienna Austria last week working to amend the 1987 Montreal Protocol that would phase out hydro-fluorocarbons (HFCs) from those common appliances. Air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State.
“As we were working together on the challenge of [ISIS] and terrorism,” said Kerry. “It’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we–you–are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself.” This is spoken from a powerful rich man who has never gone without air conditioners and refrigerators during all his pampered and privileged life.
He doesn’t mention that air conditioners and refrigerators are probably the greatest invention since the wheel. Together, they have enhanced and saved more lives than just about any other invention I can think of. Can you imagine your life without air conditioners and refrigerators?
I can’t; and John Kerry can’t either. He’ll always enjoy the benefits of his air conditioners and refrigerators. I’m sure he has a lot more than one of each in his many homes and motor vehicles. He just wants to make them more expensive so the poor folks can’t have them and the middle class would be forced to sacrifice in order to keep them.
It’s been 95 degrees plus Fahrenheit this week in Philadelphia where the air conditioners and refrigerators have been running at full blast to keep all the hypocrite Democrat climate change hoaxers like John Kerry cool and well fed in their hotel rooms and at the Wells Fargo Center during the Democrat National Convention. They like ice in their drinks and they don’t like to break into a sweat.
It just goes to show you how much they really care about the “threat” of the air conditioners coming to end their precious privileged lives.
