What's the bigger threat, Mr. Kerry: ISIS ... or Freon?

John Kerry (sec'y of state)A national defense analyst says it's bizarre that the U.S. secretary of state considers chemicals used in major appliances as big a threat to life on the planet as ISIS.

John Kerry essentially made that claim in Vienna last week while negotiating a deal that would phase out chemicals used in refrigerants found in everyday appliances like air-conditioners and refrigerators.

After meeting the day before in Washington, DC, with representatives from dozens of countries to discuss the challenge posed by terrorism and the Islamic State, Kerry told those in Vienna:

"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 global deal would conform to new EPA regulations by banning hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) in the United States and promoting alternative chemicals for use in appliances.

Robert Maginnis, a senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council, thinks the comparison of HFCs to ISIS is bizarre.

"He would suggest that we have to live in insufferable conditions, and yet that this is okay in comparison to the threat posed by ISIS, which is infiltrating much of the world today and doing such horrendous crimes against humanity," he summarizes.

Maginnis also takes issue with the secretary's audacity to invoke the Bible to push "climate change."

"This guy is invoking the Bible ... as justification for going after HFCs [and as a basis for] unproven science. [Yet] he won't invoke the Bible when it comes to the genocide of Christians in the Middle East or people wanting to live the homosexual lifestyle," says Maginnis. "He ignores what the Bible says there.

"It's only used when it's convenient and it fits their politically correct way of seeing the world," he concludes.
