UK Conservative Party Ponders Plasma TV Ban Print
Monday, 10 September 2007

First, California banned smoking in bars. Then, New York City mandated trans fat-free restaurants. Now, the UK oppposition party wants to ban plasma TVs.

When I was growing up, I used to think having a nanny would be cool. I was wrong.

From the UK newspaper, The Sun:

The Conservatives will propose banning plasma screens and other energy-guzzling electrical goods in a report to be unveiled next week. 

The proposals target white goods like fridges and freezers, as well as TVs, personal computers and DVD players that use too much energy or operate on stand-by.

The ideas come from a Conservative group set up by David Cameron to develop policies to protect the environment and although the measures to make household electrical appliances more energy efficient are not binding on Mr Cameron, they are thought likely to be warmly received by the Tory leader.

Warmly received? Mr. Cameron better watch his ass, or he'll be next victim of the carbon footprint stampede.
