Help John Kerry get rid of his carbon-emitting polluting air conditioners
As noted here a few days ago, Secretary of State John Kerry informed the international climate change scaremongers:
The use of hydrofluorocarbons is unfortunately growing. Already, the HFCs use[d] in refrigerators, air conditioners, and other items are use[d] 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.
Well, okay, Secretary Kerry – let's do something about it. As I suggested over two years ago, Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is John Kerry:
In the interests of avoiding climate change and contributing to WMDs, not to mention doing something about that Democratic bugaboo of income and housing inequality, Kerry should convince his one per cent wife Theresa Heinz-Kerry to convert and sell her four carbon dioxide emitting mansions into public housing for minimum wage workers while he sells his Beacon Hill abode in Boston. They can then take up residence in a simple 2000 square foot apartment suitable for all the entertaining necessary for his job. (snip)
Or perhaps Kerry will be willing to sacrifice his $7,000,000 yacht -- which he docked in neighboring Rhode Island to avoid his home state's $500,000 luxury tax which he voted for before moving against it.
However, John Kerry still has his four carbon dioxide-polluting climate-changing mansions. And his polluting yacht. Yeah, I'm surprised, too.
Oh, and not so by the way, John Kerry now also works in air conditioned comfort in steamy summery Washington, D.C., totally oblivious to the "gigatons of carbon dioxide-equivalent pollution in the atmosphere" emitted by the machines he deems evil. What to do? Let's encourage Kerry to practice what he preaches by getting rid of them. Here is a petition at Change.org asking Kerry to do just that.
I'm sure that once Kerry receives the petition with all the signatures, he'll immediately turn off his home and office air conditioners while conducting official business from his sweltering office on (highly secured, of course) computers while drastically reducing the number of his overseas trips on large, luxurious government planes and flying tourist class. And all the State Department employees will happily follow his lead. And of course he'll do something about his multiple mansions and boats now that he knows what he's talking about.
Sure, he will.
His talk is cheap, its consequences expensive.
