    Wonder if the UK government would act in a similar manner over pensions, since they massacred company pensions (under Gordon Brown) apart from the few who can still have final salary pensions of course – who are they????, Oh yes Government and civil service.

    Governmental edicts only apply to the proles!

    Signed up too. This is far too an important issue to let it go especially when John Kerry has a face like the sole of a plimsoll shoe.

    Anyone who has EVER spent a summer in Washington, DC can predict an uprising. I spent 9 summers there plus a few in Chapel Hill, NC. The heat and humidity are way north of oppressive. Boston also has its share of summer heat and humidity. Wonder if his house (actually Teresa Heinz Kerry’s) has AC?

      His house is probably like a walk in meat locker this time of year.

      Before air conditioning, wasn’t Washington DC a swamp? And it was treated as a hazardous embassy posting?

      Correct. Malaria risk too.

    I do hope those who say that they have signed are extracting the Michael.
    Otherwise I have serious doubts as to their sanity- along with Kerry.

    Yes! I was just thinking that John Kerry should lead by example. Now there’s a way to let him know we all think he should show us the way.

    The dreaded chlorine in CFCs has really done nothing to total column stratospheric ozone. Those who got all “steamed up” about it ignored the fact that ozone was actually rising from 1960 to 1979 when the Nimbus satellite took TOMS up to look around. Ozone was ~300 DU in the mid-1960s and it peaked in 1979. The “scare” was actually ozone simply declining back to ~300 DU by the mid 1980s. John Kerry doesn’t know that the Molina-Rowland hypothesis never did work as advertised. It still doesn’t.

      Please be advised that these sort of site are better approached with a disposable email address at the ready.

    Dear Secretary of State John F. Kerry,

    In response to your latest re: Refrigerators and Air Conditioning are as Dangerous as ISIS, please lend a thought to reinstating the employ of Punka Wallahs in all US embassies and offices. This project would not only provide ‘sustainable’ cooling but advantageously easing the employment difficulties in both your home country and all nations worldwide where America has a diplomatic delegation.

    P.S. Could you also see your way to proposing the same at the next UN shindig meeting.

    Your ex Punka Wallah (now unemployed)

    Will all the removed AC be moved to big storage units in Guantanomo Bay ?
    And be stored in orange coloured boxes
