Scientists have found a new threat to the planet: Canadian beer drinkers.There's just too much material here to poke fun at.
The government-commissioned study says the old, inefficient "beer fridges" that one in three Canadian households use to store their Molson and Labatt's contribute significantly to global warming by guzzling gas- and coal-fired electricity.
"People need to understand the impact of their lifestyles," British environmental consultant Joanna Yarrow tells New Scientist magazine. "Clearly the environmental implications of having a frivolous luxury like a beer fridge are not hitting home. This research helps inform people — let's hope it has an effect."

No making fun of LaBatt's beer, got it!
They are forever off limits, after all: "Tonight's Cavaliers basketball game was brought to you by LaBatt's Blue. LaBatt's...it's blue heaven".
--have a GOOD(!) Shabbos, everyBOdy
Does this apply to all "bar fridges" or just the ones in the shape of a beer can?
Pretty soon they'll be noting that REGULAR fridges contribute to global warming and then recommend that we all move to the "ice box".
BTW, a friend of mine has a bar fridge in his dining room so he can have easy access to things for the Shabbos table like pop etc.
Labatt's isn't even Canadian owned anymore.
And, I forgot to mention that my friend's regular fridge is in his kitchen four feet behind him.
And no, he's not a beer drinker.
Those stinkin' Canadians. They are the cause of all that's wrong with this complicated world. I always knew that. Toronto is way too clean to be populated by normal people!ReplyDelete
