Iowa Progress: Air Conditioning Will Keep The Polar Icecaps From Melting
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Progress
Dwayne Alons, Iowa's resident climate change expert, pronounced today
that global warming isn't a problem because we have air conditioning.
Alons opined that "we shouldn't be as concerned, actually, about
warming, especially now that we have modern refrigeration and air
conditioning." Unfortunately, unless we air condition the entire
planet, we're in trouble. Global warming means that the polar icecaps
will melt and flood many coastal cities and islands. In fact,
according to the National Resources Defense Council, 22,400 square
miles of the United States, an area half the size of Iowa, will be
underwater by the year 2100 as a result of global warming.
