Canadian beer drinkers threaten planet!

All hail to the beer fridge!: Canadian beer drinkers are destroying the planet, but having too good a time to notice.

Canadians love their beer. However, possessing only the standard number of kidneys (2), they must drink it slowly, and store it until they are ready. To keep their cold ones, er, cold, they have developed the tradition of the “beer fridge” – an old, used refrigerator, kept in the garage or the basement, and used just for beer and snacks. (Newer, nicer fridges go in the kitchen.)

But a new study by the Canadian government claims that this piece of native culture is wrecking the environment. The old refrigerators use more energy than newer models. Researchers have suggested buy-back programs, which basically amounts to taxpayers buying me a new fridge. Finally, a government subsidy we can all get behind!

There’s no reliable data on the energy consumption of the beer-launching fridge, clearly the greatest achievement in the history of civilization.

Science rules! Did you know that global warming is fake? Al Gore is being sued for misleading the public. From 2005-2008 the overall temperature of the Earth has dropped. In the movie, Al Gore showed a graph that he claims shows that as Carbondioxide increases, the temperature increases, but upon closer inspection, as TEMPERATURE increases CARBONDIOXIDE increases, so temperature increases first!
