Via Sadly No, allow me to introduce you to Andrew Longman who is so super sciencey, he makes Denyse O’Leary look like a fucking genius. No, I’m not kidding.
Mr. Longman, who is described as a Christian first and an “applied scientist” second, believes that banning incandescent lightbulbs will actually increase CO2 emissions (still not kidding) which he describes in full-metal crazy detail at WingNut Daily. I won’t bore you with the exceptionally convoluted workings of what passes for his mind but suffice it to say, it can somehow all be blamed on women. I wish I was kidding.
American leftists, intent on hating the chemicals they are made from, work very hard to force other people to reduce the amount of CO2 emitted during existence. Being mostly liberal arts majors, and not engineers, these folks have quickly come to equate energy efficiency with lower CO2 emission. Based on those vague facts, and a strong sense of female social emotion, Congress recently passed a law yanking incandescent lights from production and replacing them all with compact fluorescents. Wisdom has been mandated.
As God is my witness, I have no idea where to go with this.
