NYU Professor Says That Air Conditioning Makes It Hot

Eric Klinenberg, professor of sociology at New York University wrote an opinion piece in Time magazine recently, pointing out that global energy consumption is soaring. The expectation of air conditioning convenience is spreading to countries where American culture carries influence.

For example, sales of air conditioners rose 20 percent in India and China last year.

Klinenberg says all of this is happening while people simultaneously burn through fossil fuels in ‘suicidal fashion’.

He says it is destroying the environment, and insists regulation is needed because people are likely not going to volunteer to reduce their usage.

By constantly blasting air conditioning to provide immediate relief from soaring temperatures, humankind is ultimately making for hotter long-term temperatures by contributing to global warming.

    The question I would ask Eric Klinenberg, who by the way is on public teat when comes to finacial compensation. Is his building and office air conditioned ? Is so,it would appear the self righteous prof. is suffering from the mephistophelian syndrome.

    The best response is to shut off the electricity to the NYU, so he can enjoy helping his cause. I think about one year without fossil fuel energy or anything produced with fossil fuel energy would be enough to rid him of his position.

      You are granting Klinenberg a remarkable fortitude. I think a week would cure most people.

        I am interested in showing everyone the outcome of living that life style, not just curing the myopia of one Chicken Little.

      Even easier . . . just force him to give up toilet paper for a month. He’ll quickly realize some ModCons are worth insulting Gaia.

  3. Kaboom says:

    If he works at NYU in summer he certainly has an air conditioned office. Is someone on the janitorial staff reading this?

    Jogged my memory about a cracker Lars Larson radio interview with crackpot eco-activist Dr. Laurie Johnson of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) who claimed “When you get in your car in summer, your car is hot because it has greenhouse gases in it. That’s why its hot.” !

    Only temporary inconvenienced by the ‘greenhouse effect’ before she jams her AC on full to cool herself & house down.

      Did you ever see this text below that graph before? Seems like it was added today:

      “The plot above replaces an earlier sea ice extent plot, that was based on data with the coastal zones masked out. This coastal mask implied that the previous sea ice extent estimates were underestimated. The new plot displays absolute sea ice extent estimates. The old plot can still be viewed here(*) for a while.”

      (*) http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/old_icecover.uk.php

      Does any of you know what they mean with those ‘coastal zones masked out’???
      What are they doing?

      • There Is No Substitute for Victory says:

        They exclude or “Mask out” coastal zones when counting ice extent. But on the other hand “they” count coastal zones like river deltas as part of the Arctic Ocean. They also include coastal zones when adding up total Arctic Ocean area. It makes any melting look worse than it is. Remember the argument about where or when the Rowers turned Pushers were or were not in the Beaufort Sea.

    Air conditioning in summer is one thing, much worse is heating in winter especially in Alaska so the canary can survive the cold .

    All he needs is a good slapping to wake him up-:)

    “… All these conservatives are obsessed with your bedroom. But these liberal environmentalists are obsessed with every other room in your house…” – Phelim McAleer

    He was joking about the first part.

  9. Jeffk says:

    Hello! Because the same people who favor 3rd World globalized development also turn around and want to fight climate change. Morons in self-defeating conflict with each other. You can’t be pro-development and anti-CO2 also.
    Someone tell them soon. I think globalization will win out over climate change cultists.

    • Justa Joe says:

      Actually most climate neurotics are not for 3rd world development. Heck, they even want to de-develop the industrialized west.

    Spot on! Sums up the whole leftwing mindset.
