From Best of the Web (James Taranto) : Electric Shock “People who claim to worry about climate change use more electricity than those who do not, a Government study has found,” reports London’s Daily Telegraph:
Those who say they are concerned about the prospect of climate change consume more energy than those who say it is “too far into the future to worry about,” the study commissioned by the Department for Energy and Climate Change found. . . .
The findings will strengthen the case of those who argue that more coercive methods are needed if people’s energy consumption is to be reduced.
Just imagine how these people think: I’m worried about the planet. The government must act now before I destroy it!
