Tax avoiding yachtsman Senator John Kerry on 7/22 said "Arctic would be ice-free in 5-10 years", but would not cite source for prediction

(John Kerry, among other things, is desperately trying to deliver the trillion dollar jewel in the global warming mob's belt. No major media question him, happy to leave citizens twisting in the wind against climate fraud.) ed.
