John Kerry Finally Names the Terrorists

It took Donald Trump’s continued berating of Obama before the President would actually use the phrase “radical Islam.” But even then, the President was dismissive of it. Now, in Vienna, John Kerry has gone further than the President ever did. He said we had to fight these terrorists and doing so “has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself.” Of course it was not ISIS he was talking about. Nor was it radical Islam. It was…

Air conditioners and refrigerators. That’s right. According to John Kerry, air conditioners and refrigerators are as big a threat to humanity as ISIS. The dreaded “hydroflurocarbon” is on the rise. Mind you, HFCs are declining in the Western world. But they are on the rise in China, India, and Africa.

So John Kerry wants the third world to give up basic sanitation and cool air so the rest of us can survive. I wonder if he’ll turn off the air conditioner in his private jet.
