Skip to comments.Stan Cox Wants to Ban Air Conditioning
Posted on 07/12/2010 1:25:38 PM PDT by Marcus
Proving that there is no folly fallacious enough that it can't be written down, both in a book and in an oped in the Washington Post, Stan Cox, an agricultural scientist, has proposed to ban or greatly restrict air conditioning.

Just the thing Obama needs to finish off Las Vegas.
You would be dead meat, Stan.
I think he should go first, and let the rest of us know how it works out.
Hey Stan, you ignorant moron...why don’t you come and spend a few months here in Arizona, where the temps can get as hot as 120° or more. Let’s see how you handle the ‘dry heat’ without any or limited air conditioning.
You bafoon....you think we are oppressed by chilled air. That’s funny.
What a ridiculous waste of time. Idiot.
Would be wonderful in conjunction with just using one square of toilet paper.
“Stan, an agricultural scientist...”
In other words, he grows and smokes pot.
Ban air conditioners? I say we ban liberals.
Funny how the libs are always quick to tell you what YOU should do, but the rules don’t apply to THEM.
The area was populated before air-conditioning and people did alright. Stan is a moron, but AC is a luxury, not a necessity.
Invest in ice.
Nearly any city in the summertime. Maybe people should go back to sleeping on rooftops and fire escapes.
The death rate in places like NYC would be horrendous.
If anybody doesn’t believe they want us all to live in the 18th century and eat tofu and bean sprouts, you are a fool................
In Florida, it’s a necessity.................
The Left has already said this. Barrack Hussein Obama M.M.M. said that we can’t just set our indoor temperatures at whatever we’d like.
The American standard of living is too high. We need to let our old people die in the summertime like they do in wise old France.
(New Lennox unit)
“The unit comes with a 10-Year Limited Warranty on compressor and all remaining covered components, excludes solar panel.
Since Lennox states that there is only 8% savings in electricity usage, the XP unit is going to cost somewhere in the range of $7500-$12,000 for a 3-ton system, installed. Once you add in the extra costs of the solar assist panel and installation, you can spend an extra $2500-$5000 on the total job.”
Bloom Energy is working on something, too, and Enery Server (fuel cell technology).
“What is an Energy Server?
Built with our patented solid oxide fuel cell technology, Bloom’s Energy Server is a new class of distributed power generator, producing clean, reliable, affordable electricity at the customer site.
Fuel cells are devices that convert fuel into electricity through a clean electro-chemical process rather than dirty combustion. They are like batteries except that they always run. Our particular type of fuel cell technology is different than legacy “hydrogen” fuel cells in four main ways:
1.Low cost materials our cells use a common sand-like powder instead of precious
metals like platinum or corrosive materials like acids.
2.High electrical efficiency we can convert fuel into electricity at nearly twice the
rate of some legacy technologies
3.Fuel flexibility our systems are capable of using either renewable or fossil fuels
4.Reversible our technology is capable of both energy generation and storage
Each Bloom Energy Server provides 100kW of power, enough to meet the baseload needs of 100 average homes or a small office building... day and night, in roughly the footprint of a standard parking space. For more power simply add more energy servers.”
(Not on the market yet)
A group capable of banning light bulbs seems perfectly capable of doing this. Especially considering most of the Sunbelt votes Republican.
Indoor toilets are also not a necessity.
