Study: Canadian Beer Drinkers Threaten Planet

A threat to the planet, eh?

Scientists have found a new threat to the planet: Canadian beer drinkers.
The government-commissioned study says the old, inefficient "beer fridges" that one in three Canadian households use to store their Molson and Labatt's contribute significantly to global warming by guzzling gas- and coal-fired electricity.
"People need to understand the impact of their lifestyles," British environmental consultant Joanna Yarrow tells New Scientist magazine. "Clearly the environmental implications of having a frivolous luxury like a beer fridge are not hitting home. This research helps inform people — let's hope it has an effect."
The problem is that the beer fridges are mostly decades-old machines that began their second careers as beverage dispensers when Canadians upgraded to more energy-efficient models to store whatever Canadians eat besides doughnuts and poutine.
University of Alberta researcher Denise Young, who led the study, suggests that provincial authorities hold beer-fridge buy-backs or round-ups to eliminate the threat — methods that Americans use to get guns off the streets.
 
I think we should create a Militia to monitor the Border. :up:
 
someone ought to mention to British environmental consultant Joanna Yarrow that we're already aware of the problem and have had an ad campaign running since June.

 
I'm pretty sure that beer is the least to worry about in terms of the planet's health. The USA contributes more crappiness to this planet
 
You'd think people living in a frozen wasteland wouldn't need refrigerators.

CHINA puts out 100 times more crap into the Atmosphere than the United States.
 
Oh and Nuclear testing doesn't do anything close to beer fridges right? :whatever:

that is easily one of the most effective means of spreading awareness i have ever seen. was that mr miagi?
 
Yeah but we need our good beer cold in order to make sure we don't drink your warm cruddy beer by mistake. Ah, good cold Minimum 5% beer with a drinking age of 19. Nothing like it... in the US anyway :p
