Air conditioning in warm regions uses far less energy than heating in cold regions.
So if you want to help save the planet, move out of Vermont and get yourself to Alabama where people know how to live in harmony with Mother Gaia. Moving out of New England could be the purest form of environmental activism; your selfish, earth destroying choice of living in Massachusetts in killing us all. And as for Canada, Gaia’s message is clear: shut it down, now. The Germans for their part could help the planet by moving to Spain and Greece; this might also help with Europe’s financial woes.
Am I seriously reading a professor from South Carolina and another from Tennessee suggesting that what we need is for more Yankees to move down South? Is this what you want for the good people of Alabama?Perhaps the blue model politicians whose tax and spend policies are driving businesses and residents out of their states are smarter than they look. They could be green activists, steadily working to save the earth by driving people out of the northeast. We look forward to green activists introducing legislation in Congress to levy new taxes on those whose choice to live in cold states imposes costs on the more virtuous and eco-friendly inhabitants of Texas and South Carolina.It only seems fair. You do care about the planet, don’t you?
(I haven't forgotten you, Raven! But still: Bernie Sanders voters moving to Alabama? Madness.)
