AGW Today: Stop Using Your Washing Machines!

Today’s “let’s get back to living like it’s the 1700’s” story

Washing dirty linen yourself rather than relying on a machine could help cut down greenhouse gas emission levels, according to a Queensland University of Technology researcher.

Navarro said that throughout a T-shirt’s life, made and sold in Australia, almost 75 per cent of its carbon footprint would be caused by machine washing and drying at home.

“This means our decisions on washing our clothes have a big impact on the carbon footprint of our clothing. It makes a huge difference in energy consumption to hang clothes out on a washing line to dry instead of using a tumble dryer.”

Navarro said the use of “smell-friendly” fibres would also assist in increasing the number of times a shirt is worn between washes. “Research shows that polyester is related to more intense sweat odour than cotton,” he said.

Whoa! At least this is one way the Climahysterics are walking the walk, since so many of them smell like they haven’t washed their clothes in some time.

Why does so much of the Climahysterics yammering seem to show they want to do away with all modern accoutrements, those things that give an advanced and prosperous life to Mankind?

Meanwhile, lots of people will be driving their SUVs to the Fifth Annual Climate Change Conference. I bet some of them washed their clothes in a machine.

    Yeah, and the U.N. wants us to stop eating meat too… seriously, they want us back in the 1800s, or maybe even in the early 1100s perhaps…

  2. I think they want the time of the Spanish Inquisition.

    Teach said: I think they want the time of the Spanish Inquisition.

    That’s funny coming from someone who doesn’t think waterboarding is torture.

  4. manbearpig says:

    Did they use waterboarding during the Inquisition?

  5. Silke says:

    Yes, that’ how they extracted false confessions.

  6. So, you are saying the information we go from 3 stone cold al Qaeda members over 5 years was false? Perhaps we should have asked KSM “pretty please, tell us what you know?”

    Pathetic.
