air conditioners will kill you

In Vienna, Austria, at a meeting to reduce/eliminate a chemical expelled into the air from air conditioners, the U.S. Secretary of State made a statement saying air conditioners were as dangerous as terrorists. No, I am not kidding. See for yourself ...

From the U.S. government State Department's own website:

"But the truth is our goal for these talks – amending the Montreal Protocol to phase down HFCs – is one of the single most important unitary steps that we could possibly take at this moment to stave off the worst impacts of climate change and to protect the future for people in every single corner of the globe. Yesterday, I met in Washington with 45 nations – defense ministers and foreign ministers – as we were working together on the challenge of Daesh, ISIL, 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)"

There you have it. And you thought terrorism was a big threat and your a/c was not. The U.S. government says terrorism and air conditioning are an equal threat. That being the case, a case made by a high-ranking U.S. government idiot, should we Americans now fear that our air conditioners will rise up in the name of Allah and kill us?
