Environment - What Global Warming Part II

On the plus side, it's nice to see that China is at least making an effort to reduce power consumption on a governmental level. It's kind of embarrassing to think that the Chinese government is doing better on this issue than the U.S. government.
Nanjing, capital of eastern Jiangsu province, is the latest city to set a limit on air conditioning use as pressure from the central government to save energy starts to take effect over fears of power failures this summer.

Members of China's cabinet have also called on office workers to ditch business suits in favour of t-shirts in an effort to cool down cheaply, and ordered that air-conditioning units in most public buildings be set no cooler than 26 degrees Celsius.
I need to buy more clothes, preferably linen, but I don't want to spend a single penny as long as the Misadministration is in power.


Stumble It!
