Cold summer

Power saving is all right but I am really not enjoying this cold summer ... hence I leave my computer ON to contribute to global warming. It's a small contribution but it's all I can afford.

So where in the world is summer too cold?

In the US we have probably had enough of the heat dome effect, although in Mass we are not so affected.

You want to start a flame war on global warming seriously!

I often joke about it ... getting warmer does not motivate me to save power, quite the opposite. ;) I do not believe in global warming being mainly caused be men and by whatever (sun for example) it is mainly caused by, I would seriously enjoy more heat from it - writing from Central Europe. ;)

It also depends where the power comes from ... cutting on other harmful gases is OK, but CO2 is not the one we should avoid!
