Why isn’t our energy consumption dropping during Connecticut’s heat wave?

State utilities are urging residents to cut down on their electricity use while temperatures remain over 90 this week, but I’m confused: by an overwhelming percentage, people here in the Nutmeg State want restrictions on energy production in order to spare us from global warming, so shouldn’t they be sweating in their homes and offices with their air conditioners shut down? Our electricity use should be lower this week, surely not higher.

I wonder whether Greenwich Conservation Director Denise Savageu and Planning & Zoning head, “We’re All Gonna Drown” Diane Fox are sitting in dark, hot offices today over at town hall – should we look?

UPDATE: Parents, tired of your little high school brat nagging you about recycling plastic water bottles? Here’s a chance to save on energy bills while joining them in their passion: shut down that a/c, go to the movies and leave the child at home to deal with it.

    o/t but saw this article about another NYC mayoral candidate who is planning to jump over Weiner-Quinn. the NYT article says he plans to run as an Independent but independent my ass. Google the guy, his foundation, his affiliations – he’s a Democrat as the day is long. He’s already hired Joe Trippi as a consultant.

    You can’t blame Ct. factories for using too much power as there are few left here.
