Today, I would like to insert a bit of common sense into two seemingly divergent topics recently brought to our attention in the oddest of ways.
Trust me, this needs to be addressed in the most serious way I know how and address it I will.
The topics at hand are the religion of global warming, its splinter sect, the religion of climate change and the ever-so-popular religion of peace.
While these two cults wouldn’t seem to have anything to do with one another, I assure you all that the two do indeed intersect and that intersection can be found somewhere between the empty head of one, John Kerry and his southernmost orifice in which the former resides.
According to John “Lurch” Kerry…
Here’s what he said…
“As we were working together on the challenge of [ISIS] and terrorism. 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.”
“The use of hydrofluorocarbons is unfortunately growing. Already, the HFCs use in refrigerators, air conditioners, and other items are emitting an entire gigaton of carbon dioxide-equivalent pollution into the atmosphere annually. Now, if that sounds like a lot, my friends, it’s because it is. It’s the equivalent to emissions from nearly 300 coal-fired power plants every single year.”
So according to the poster boy for cranial-rectal disease…stopping the use of appliances that cool the air and chill our food is “of equal importance” to finding a way to stop ISIS. That means, despite what Snopes says, John Kerry did indeed tell the world, from Vienna, that our fridges and air conditioners are as dangerous as ISIS.
My air conditioner has never beheaded anyone.
My air conditioner, and I would hazard to believe that your air conditioner, has never locked people in a cage and set them on fire.
Neither my nor your refrigerator has ever, not even once, expressed a deep desire to commit genocide, never once declared jihad or issued a fatwa nor have either our fridges or air conditioners ever stoned anyone, demanded the death of an oven (the natural enemy of cold air appliances) or flown a jet into a tower.
Remember those events in San Bernardino, in Paris, in Nice and in Orlando…not to mention the thousands of other such events around the globe over the last few decades if not over the past 1,400 years? Those weren’t HVAC attacks…those were Islamic terrorist attacks.
Liberals will tell you that humans, and for that matter, pre-humans lived for millions of years without air conditioners or refrigerators and they would be correct. What they won’t tell you is that for millions of years, human and pre-human life expectancy was somewhere around 35 years.
Refrigeration, be it for keeping food or for comfort began around 1100bc in China. We also know that snow and ice were carted by donkeys (the animals, not liberals) from the Alps to the Roman Emperors back in the day and as a result, human lifespans began to increase.
By the 1920’s and 1930’s, refrigerators started popping up in people’s homes thus providing a way to keep food from spoiling as fast and it did before which kept people from getting sick from such staples as eggs, milk and meats that had turned on them.
As for air conditioning…that too began in ancient times when the Egyptians of old hung reeds in their windows and moistened them with trickling water. As the winds blew through the wet reeds…presto…cooling. Today we call those devices evap coolers or swamp coolers.
In the 2nd century, Ding Haun invented a manually powered rotary fan for the Chinese imperial palace which blew across blocks of ice. In the 17th century, Cornelis Drebbel added salt to the water of an evap styled system and demonstrated “turning summer into winter” to England’s King James 1st.
The modern air conditioner was invented in 1902 by Willis Carrier and little by little, while eating unspoiled food and going inside to cool off on a hot day, people started living longer but liberals will jump up and down while telling you that it was medical advancements that led to longer lifespans…and again they would be correct but what they won’t tell you is that medical advancements, a good many of them, relied on…refrigeration.
For the love of God…I suspect the salad crisper alone has added better than a year to the average human life and were it not for the fridge itself, there would be no salad crispers to be had.
Islamists, the ilk of ISIS, don’t really care that you can squeeze an extra week past the eat by date from your eggs or that you sit in the comfort of your home or car without sweating like a pig throughout the summer months…if you don’t ascribe to their cult…they want you dead which is pretty much what the liberals think regarding those of us who view “climate change” as the weather and believe that it is the sun, and not our appliances, that dictate our world’s climate.
Here, I will speak only for myself although I suspect I also speak for the majority of Patriots…
I trust my air conditioner, and my fridge not to go hell-bent on a murderous rampage killing innocent people wherever they gather as dictated to them by a manifesto written by a 7th century barbarian and I will continue to have both appliances as honored guests in my home. I cannot however, say the same for a member of any of many various Islamic cultists.
Now to be completely fair, while I have the utmost trust in both my air conditioner and my fridge…I am somewhat leery of my toaster…as it never seems to brown my bread the same way twice and I know it is mocking me. I also have issues with the washer and/or the dryer as I seem to be missing individual socks. However, while wearing my miss-matched socks and eating my dubious toast, I am perfectly happy to drink a tall glass of refrigerated milk while relaxing in my air conditioned kitchen as I have never heard a peep from either regarding a caliphate, the levant, destroying Israel and wiping it from the map or world domination forcing non-believers to submit or die.
I can’t, however, say the same of ISIS.
Now then, I am sure that while spewing his nonsense in Vienna, John Kerry arrived in Italy in an air conditioned private jet which spewed tons of carbon into the air between Washington and his destination, drank cold beverages kept in his jet’s refrigerator and enjoyed his posh hotel room’s air conditioned comfort while sitting on his own head.
I am also equally sure that Kerry’s palatial home and vacation homes are replete with both air conditioners and refrigerators and something tells me that his office at the Department of State are also equipped with both such implements of cooling.
In fact, were it not for air conditioning, Hillary Clinton would not have been able to house her private server either in her home or somebody’s bathroom thus providing her some 30,000 emails to delete in order to cover up her illegal and treasonous activities including but not limited to the hiring of Islamists as security in Benghazi which resulted in the murder of 4 Americans.
The barbarians of the cult of death, destruction and genocide responsible for murderous attacks around the world and here at home did not pledge their allegiance to Maytag, Whirlpool, Trane or Carrier…they pledged their allegiance to ISIS.
The clear and present danger to civilized people everywhere is not from chilled drinks or crisp salads…nor is it from 72 degree room temperatures on a day when it is pushing 100 degrees outdoors in the shade…it is, however, ISIS and their agenda of murdering any and all who don’t join their cult.
Toaster fires kill nearly 700 people ever year on average.
Dishwashers, between 2002 and 2009, were responsible for more than 1000 fires and a woman in England slipped on her wet kitchen floor while emptying her dishwasher and fell on a large knife loaded point up causing her death.
As the result of nearly 21,000 fires annually in the United States due to space heaters, an average of 300 people die every year.
Cooking is the cause of nearly 43% of home and over 16% of home fire deaths.
According to the United Nations (of thugs, thieves and despots) however, and by direct comparison, ISIS has murdered 18,800 people over the last 2 years in Iraq alone.
Also, by comparison…
As reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention…”mortality data for 1999–2009 were used to review heat-related deaths in the United States overall. During this period, 7,233 heat-related deaths occurred, an average of 658 per year. In 5,201 (72%) of these deaths, the underlying cause was exposure to excessive heat, and heat was a contributing factor in the remaining 2,032 (28%) deaths. Heat-related deaths were reported most frequently among males (4,955; 69%) and among adults aged ≥65 years (2,621; 36%). Almost all heat-related deaths occurred during May–September (6,821; 94%), with the highest numbers reported during July (2,825; 39%) and August (1,925; 27%).”
Now then, by contrast, to put the finest point possible on it…
ISIS is more likely to kill people by a factor of tens, if not hundreds of thousands of times more than your cooling systems or your refrigerators, because…fresh food and cool air, provided by your refrigerators and/or your air conditioners combined, have killed absolutely nobody…anywhere…ever.
The next time some idiot liberal, like John Kerry, tries to tell you that that your HVAC or your fridge is just as dangerous as ISIS, you can share this article with them, laugh in their collective faces and tell them to shut off their air, unplug their fridge and invite a member of the cult of death, destruction and genocide to move in with them.
Now…if you’ll excuse me…I’m going to crank up the AC and have a serious talk with my toaster.
