LONDON HIGH RISE INFERNO CAUSED BY EXPLODING GREEN FRIDGE. 
THROW OUT YOUR GREEN FRIDGE!

The Climate Change hoax has now gone too far -
IT IS NOW BELIEVED THAT AN ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY FRIDGE CAUSED THE LONDON HIGH RISE INFERNO!
GET YOUR DANGEROUS GREEN FRIDGE CHECKED OUT TODAY!!!
Alert over new wave of exploding fridges caused by 'environmentally-friendly coolant'
Safety standards for manufacturers might have to be reviewed following the blasts, which have destroyed several kitchens.

Six people are now counted dead with 74 injured in the raging high rise inferno near Latimer Road tube station just down from Shepherds Bush. They died because of foolishness amongst the world's population and the majority of people believing in the worldwide Left Wing/Liberal political hoax now termed Climate Change, which used to be called Man - Made Global Warning . Household machines like these green fridges were invented because of this false belief and now human life is under threat right across the world, and here in Ireland and Kilkenny too, wherever you have these "green" fridges.

Throw these fridges out of your dwelling immediately, swop for old-fashioned fridges if you can get them. We are all under threat, ourselves, our families, our children and our friends and fellow citizens, all from these green fridges in which the gas leaks and explodes as it did in that London tower block overnight.

Alert over new wave of exploding fridges caused by 'environmentally-friendly coolant'
By Chris Brooke for the Daily Mail

Luckily no-one was hurt when Kathy Cullingworth's fridge exploded but the damage bill was £10,000

A series of violent fridge explosions is believed to have been caused by leaks of 'environmentally-friendly' coolant.

Safety standards for manufacturers might have to be reviewed following the blasts, which have destroyed several kitchens.

At least four similar explosions have been reported in the last three years in the UK, two of them since May. And now we have the tragedy of this London high rise inferno.

The problem appears to result from a widespread switch to 'Greenfreeze' technology over the past 15 years and the use of isobutane and propane hydrocarbon gases as refrigerants.

Previously CFCs and HFCs were used in fridges but these gases damaged the ozone layer and contributed significantly to global warming, or so they made out. There are now more than 300 million Greenfreeze fridges around the world.

They are designed with safety features to ensure the flammable natural gas inside the pipework cannot leak into the fridge.

However, if this happens there is a risk of a powerful blast as the gas could be ignited by a spark when the thermostat switches off.

Graeme Fox, an air-conditioning and refrigeration contractor, said: 'During the day when the fridge door is frequently opened there isn't a problem.

'But at night, when everyone is sleeping and the door remains shut, this leaked highly flammable gas can build up in the fridge cabinet.'

Mother-of-two Kathy Cullingworth, 55, is taking legal advice after her Creda fridge exploded three weeks ago at her home in Normanton, West Yorkshire. The Mail told how it caused more than £10,000 of damage.

An independent engineer confirmed the fridge contained isobutane refrigerant and a leak is suspected.

A similar fate befell Carline Preece and her family at their home in West Bromwich.

Fortunately Mrs Preece, 44, her husband Michael, 45, and their four children were in bed when the fridge blew at 6am.

Mrs Preece thought an earthquake had struck. She said: 'The doors were ripped in half, the front door has a gaping hole in it and all the windows were blown open by the force.'

Jane Gartshore, president of the Institute of Refrigeration, said there is a 'theoretical possibility' that such explosions can be caused by a leak of isobutane.

But she stressed: 'There are hundreds of millions of these fridges and these incidents are very, very rare.'
