The number of air-conditioners worldwide is predicted to soar from 1.6 billion units today to 5.6 billion units by midcentury, according to a report issued Tuesday by the International Energy Agency. If left unchecked, by 2050 air-conditioners would use as much electricity as China does for all activities today.If left unchecked. Think about those words. The implication is that all right-thinking Progressives should want to keep Third World, dark skinned people stuck in stifling heat and humidity. Remember, these are the same people who so earnestly moan about how Global Warming will be so bad for everyone's health.
How about rejoicing that so many of our fellow human beings will be able to enjoy the comforts of a cooler house (and if you read the article, you will notice that stoves and refrigerators also get the tut tut treatment)?
Why shouldn't people want these creature comforts? Remember, you get children's books from washing machines:
I keep thinking that my contempt for Progressives cannot get any deeper, but they keep coming up with new Bravo Sierra. Maybe that's the only truly inexhaustible renewable resource.
