So while John Kerry did not say it outright, he did imply Friday afternoon at a Climate Change summit in Vienna that air conditioning and refrigerators are as big a threat as the Islamic State.

Secretary of State John Kerry said in Vienna on Friday that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State.

Elitists now want to take our air conditioners and refrigerators OR lay the groundwork that would price these items financially out of range for the poor and middle class all under the guise of such actions being for the greater good.

Kerry said that most of the substances banned in the Montreal Protocol have increased the use of HFCs and claimed that the coolant was thousands of times more potent than CO2. He added that the increase of HFCs has lead to the trend of global climate change[…]

What would you rather have in your company on a mid-summer afternoon in 97 degree temps? An air conditioned environment with a refrigerator full of cold water, ice cubes and lemonade or the likes of Jihadi John hovering over you shouting “Allah u Akbar” on the verge of slitting your throat.

If our rulers think global warming is a crisis, let them be a good example for the rest of us.

Everyone talks about global warming, but nobody does anything about it. At least, the people who talk about saving the planet the most seem to have the biggest carbon footprint. But I have some ideas for fixing that.

In this, I’m inspired by Rep. Lamar Smith, R-Tex., who noticed something peculiar recently. It seems that EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, who spends a lot of time telling Americans that they need to drive less, fly less, and in general reduce their consumption of fossil fuels, also flies home to see her family in Boston “almost every weekend“; the head of the Clean Air Division, Janet McCabe, does the same, but she heads to Indianapolis. In air mileage alone, the Daily Caller News Foundation estimates that McCarthy surpasses the carbon footprint of an ordinary American. Smith has introduced a bill that wouldn’t target the EPA honchos’ personal travel, though: It provides, simply, that “None of the funds made available by this Act may be used to pay the cost of any officer or employee of the Environmental Protection Agency for official travel by airplane.” []
