Weschester: NO MORE LIGHT BULBS!

Another Bright idea by Democrats to fight Global Warming. County Legislator Martin Rogowsky (D, IN, WF – Harrison) wants to eliminate all incandescent bulbs for all Westchester County-owned facilities after December 31, 2007. He would also try to ban the sale of incandescent light bulbs in the county after December 31, 2009.Well it's the first day of spring today and it was a freezing 25 degrees this morning, so much for global warming. The problem is the Liberals are looking to fight this front to get attention for bigger government over your life. For people who are not well off those energy efficient light bulbs are pretty costly. Maybe what we are really experiencing is Global Cooling that sounds more credible to me, at least this morning anyway. Now that Oscar winning, Presidential losing, Al Gore (he created the global warming) is talking to Congress about why he's important..umm no wait it was why global warming is important and it will be a great way to promote his film called...well I'm not going to promote it here....

WHOLE STATES AND GASP YES ENTIRE COUNTRIES HAVE ALREADY RID THEMSELVES OF ORGINIAL LIGHT BULBS IN AN EFFORT TO CONSERVE ENERGY.
IT ISNT A POLITICAL ISSUE.

cost effective, the other ones guzzle more elctic power, this is the whole point

I know genius but you shouldn't force people to spend more money shouldn't it be their choice? I noticed you said nothing about the global warming...

Environmentalism is apolitical.
Energy conservation is apolitical.

Blue garbage bags cost extra dough too, but law is law and if it helps keep the world a little safer for our kids to inherit, I'll gladly do what I can. Super unleaded costs money too. So does that new boiler my wealthy landlord from the five towns makes us pay for. Very soon, Thomas edison's invention will be an obsolete thing of the past.

Westchester is a wealthy community. They want to experiment there, its a good place to start. they probably all have guzzling halogen spotlights in their homes anyway

Anon, in theory you might be correct what you failed to say is flawed science claiming to be environmentalism IS POLITICAL!I don't need some politicians telling me what I should or should not do based on some theory that is hard to even prove and then have me spend tons of extra cash. If the liberals had their way with global warming they would kill the economy and it would be for nothing. If we would have listened to them in 1975 we'd be in big trouble.

Iraq war, anyone?

Jewish Blogmeister said...

Hey TTC you don't like sticking to a subject do you? Did I mention the war here? Why do you feel the need to bring it up? because global warming and your friend Al the bore might be full of hot air? For the record if you want to reopen the war issue here are the list of democrats in favor of going to war so they must have lied also.

Did you have a problem when they outlawed trans fats?

Or When Felder the great just intrroduced his caffeen legistlation?

Jewish Blogmeister said...

TTC I'm surprised you even bother with that analogy. You must have forgotten to eat your Wheaties or something. Transfat has been conclusively proven to be harmful directly to ones body. An incadecent light bulb has yet to have that theory proven. If you can prove that those light bulbs cause a heart attack I'll be on board. What Felder did was not to say there should be no caffeine but the label should let the consumer know how much is in it. The consumer can then decide yes or no. What was the point of bring that up? Maybe you need a little more caffeine so you can think a bit more sharply?

The Town Crier said...

Are you capable of dialogue without the silly personal attacks?

It is very sad that frum jews have abandoned core jewish values inherent in environmental consciousness just because some idiot geezer politicians decided to make it into a partisan political issue.

Jewish Blogmeister said...

Man if you consider that a personal attack you must be really thin skinned..listen if the truth hurts I can't really help TTC. Well at least you admit that they have made it political the problem it's not just one politician it's all the liberals who have made it political. He just showed what they are all thinking. BTW I do recycle and use energy efficient light bulbs but no one should be forced to do that (especially since those light bulbs are pricey).

To be fair, while the energy-efficient bulbs are more costly, they not only last longer but also since they use much less electricity, they save money in the long run. I don't see a problem with government facilities being made to switch over to them.

People in poverty, however, often don't have funds available to save money in the long run by, for instance, buying bulk packages of toilet paper, and probably wouldn't have the money to pay for the expensive lightbulb up front. People who rent homes where the landlord pays for electricity wouldn't recoup any costs through savings in utility bills. These people could be inconvenienced if regular lightbulbs aren't sold locally, but nothing in your post says people will be forbidden to use regular lightbulbs in their private homes.

The phenomenon called "global warming" actually is responsible for all sorts of extremes of weather, not only higher temperatures. Your below-freezing morning might be due to one of those extremes, but more likely simply falls within the normal range of early-spring temperatures.

Um, and Al Gore invented global warming? I don't think so.

The Town Crier said...

OK OK OK. Global Warming is a liberal consipracy myth cooked up by the biased media to give Al Gore attention (and an oscar and a nobel prize) envronmental abuse, pollution, waste and energy misuse is just a liberal industry hype, and all arabs are bad, except the ones behind all the arab oil money lining the pockets of the entire bush administration.

ALL REPUBLICANS ARE BAD AND ALL LIBERALS ARE GOOD. IF YOU WIN AN OSCAR IT MEANS YOU MUST BE RIGHT!

Jewish Blogmeister said...

Anon, I didn't hear you say anything about the global cooling we were supposed to be having back in 75'. Now we have gone toward global warming what will you say if the temperatures start going the other way? Get with the program there is no conclusive evidence just theories and you have scientists that constantly refute it.
