The following remarks were made regarding the article “Let’s Worry More About Refrigerant Leaks, Less About Metrics” written by Joanna R. Turpin, senior editor for The NEWS, published Sept. 3.


Then I’m a Scientist, Too

Please ask Mrs. Turpin if there are any studies on the effects of GWP or ODP on the recent volcano in Hawaii? Does the EPA have a way to stop “that” GWP or ODP? By “scientists,” I think she means liberal socialists who try to bend things to fit their narrative. I don’t have any way to design air conditioning equipment, but I do have a way to install them so they don’t leak. I use tried and true ways, so yes, I am a critic and a true “scientist.” Climate change is God’s realm and pollution is men’s. All air conditioning contractors don’t have time or a need to argue with these facts.
