Newest Green Idea Ban Air Conditioning

Why he want to kill the old, the sick and the very young? And the computers too?

Air conditioning “will be the end of us” and lawmakers ought to pass legislation regulating it’s use, a prominent professor from New York University (NYU) wrote in a Time Magazine article last month.

“Today Americans use twice as much energy for air-conditioning as we did 20 years ago, and more than the rest of the world’s nations combined,” wrote Eric Klineberg, professor of sociology at NYU. “As a climate-change adaption strategy, this is as dumb as it gets.”

“I’m skeptical that American businesses and consumers will reduce their use of air-conditioning without new rules and regulations,” he added.

Klinenberg went on to propose a rule that would make it illegal for businesses to set their thermostats below 70 degrees, arguing such actions “might well be necessary if we can’t turn down the dial on our own.”

Remember the greenies last idea. They lamented the fact that there were only a few native switchgrass prairies left. So they invented Frankengrass a version of switchgrass crossed with fescue that could not only compete against ordinary grass, it takes over ruining hayfields and pastures all over the midwest.

Now its out of control, the state has to drive around spraying Paraquat and Roundup up and down the road trying to stop it. Never mind the fact that no one at all is making a cost effective biofuel from this frankengrass.

Now the sh*t is all over. Its crazy. We spent 200 years replacing switchgrass prairies with things that would produce good pasture and hay. The lefties of course think this was bad because, you know, colonialism.

This field used to produce two cuttings of bluegrass and fescue hay per year.
Now its just bushhogged twice per year.
If you made hay from the above and fed it to cattle you'd just spread the switchgrass to the feed area and every pasture they graze on.

Now, an in a matter of just a few years its gone up in the smoke of an Environmentalist's pipe dream. You can't cut the Frankengrass, you can't kill it, you can't poison it and you can't feed it to anything except maybe bison, give the bison a choice and he won't eat it either.

And now you notice they never mention it, wonder why?

Do us all a favor and stop trying to help!
