Honda F1 driver Jenson Button solves global warming:
He advised the media that he now turns off his TV, rather than leaving it on standby.

No doubt we will soon hear that Barbra Striesand will be turning down the thermostat in her private jet and wearing a coat instead, to do her bit in the battle against climate change.
Maybe Babs can do without the climate control on her private plane?Posted by Rob Crawford on 2007 03 03 at 02:08 PM • permalink
- Turning off the TV is, in fact, quite good for your health.
And I’m not talking about Gorebal Wormening, either.Posted by Barbara Skolaut on 2007 03 03 at 02:48 PM • permalink
- Please, people peasants, one can not reasonably ask the Great Barbara Streisand to turn down her thermostat. Instead, we must turn ours down even further. I will do my part by turning my temperature down in the summer. Others can turn theirs down during winter.
BTW, why is Her Babsness considered such a great singer? I never cared for her voice. Or her acting. Or her face. Or her politics.

- In my commitments to the environment I have decided on the following principles.
I will not buy a new lear jet.
I will not get a new luxury car every year.
I will not keep a stable of servants/retainers.
I will not live in a house with more than 3 heated swimming pools.
I will not date more than 1 supermodel at a time.
This whole “making sacrafices for the environment” schtick is easier than it appears for someone on an average wage, try your own sacrafices list?Posted by thefrollickingmole on 2007 03 03 at 06:05 PM • permalink
- One of my mother’s cousins, who lived on a large wheat-sheep property by himself, often spent a lot of time listening to tapes whilst doing a bit of recreational ploughing. As a bachelor, his diet was also lacking. Anyway, out of boredom he would also go on long trips, where he also got to listen to tapes in his landcruiser.
One day he just decided to pop in on mum ( a one way trip of 1500 km). The first thing he did was walk through the entire house turning off appliances – so that the CIA couldn’t hear what he had to say. At the time, he was not aware that it also had environmental benefits.

Thats the spirit. Theres nothing wrong with having an older jet.
If all of us just saw to it that our private jets were flown 10% slower, the fuel savings and carbon offsets would be astounding.
Why dont those obstinate deniers see things as clearly as the rest of us.
And oh yeah, we need to ban auto racing in its entirety.

- In the interests of stopping gerbil womanising I’ve decided that, after I arrive home, I will now turn my car off, rather than leaving it on standby.Posted by Apparatchik on 2007 03 03 at 09:57 PM • permalink
- There was talk in the UK press a year ago about banning appliance standby on electronic goods sold in Europe. Apparently at 5-10w per item it amounts to one new power station.Posted by walterplinge on 2007 03 03 at 10:08 PM • permalink
- Frollickingmole has the right idea. I was going to buy a new luxury yacht this year, but, following the example of His High Greenness, Reverend Al, I’ve decided to opt for a plain old yacht instead. I hope that bitch Mother Gaia appreciates the sacrifices we’re making on her behalf.Posted by Blue State Sil on 2007 03 03 at 10:52 PM • permalink
- I turn off my TV whenever Algore is mentioned. I save tons of electricity that way.Posted by richard mcenroe on 2007 03 04 at 01:19 AM • permalink

Maybe I should toodle over to my neighbor the Goracle’s house and borrow a cup of carbon credits to atone for my sins.
