Microwaves are as damaging to
the environment as cars

The Sun, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:mc squared, 1/18/2018 9:25:20 AM

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact

Comments:
Oh no. Just when I stopped barbecuing to save the earth, I´ll have to stop using my microwave.

I really can´t think of anything sarcastic to say about these Luddites anymore. It´s getting too serious.

Once upon a time these things were rightfully hailed as being far more efficient than a conventional oven. Now they are joining the list of things that are killing polar bears?

Sheesh, let´s just cut to the chase and all of us start eating nothing but raw grass, you know to "save the planet".

Like people don´t "overcook" food using other methods?

As to the amount of "damage", I do not believe it. If you want to tell me that microwaves use as much energy as cars in total, ok, maybe. But "overcooking" using as much energy as cars, baloney.

Microwaving, in general, is an efficient way to cook. For example, if I want a cup of tea, I put the exact amount of water I will drink into a cup and heat it exactly to the temperature I want it to steep at. The old way was to heat water in a kettle to boiling. Too much water and too hot. Plus we have to heat the metal kettle as well.

We are going to cook our food one way or another and equating the energy we use in doing so as "damage" is lunacy.

The article is mostly sensationalism with little content.

Carbon is only a ´pollutant´ in the sense that all human-kind is a pollutant, a cancer, a plague upon the planet.

If I want a dose of "Flagellante" self- abuse and over-blown repentance I will partake of those religions who dispense and promote it. However I prefer my science without all the voodoo and doo-doo.

Insanity. First point - microwave ovens heat items far more efficiently, using far less electricity than conventional electric ovens.

Carbon dioxide is a beneficial gas, necessary for all green plants to live. CO2 is currently in very short supply in our atmosphere, restricting the ability of green plants to grow and reproduce. The plants are gasping for CO2.

Releasing more CO2 into the air is good, not bad, regardless of the insane, irrational MMGW loons who say otherwise with no basis in science, only faudulent work pretending to be science.

These people will not be satisfied until we are reduced to eating nothing but fruits, nuts and maybe a few PC vegetables. They appear to react badly to anything that we could want to cook.

Microwaves in communications, maybe. But microwave ovens are supposed to be tightly contained in their appliance, so they don´t damage human users. I am so tired of the never ending pearl clutching.

The question answers itself. They are progressive liberals, personally and professionally invested in the global climate change narrative, who believe that human nature is malleable, and that people are just trained seals that they need only to throw a fish to now and then.

Deputies called to suspected shooter’s

Before Nikolas Cruz carried out his mass killing at a Florida high school this week, police responded to his home 39 times over a seven-year period, according to disturbing new documents. Details about the calls to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office — obtained through police records by CNN — were not immediately available and it was impossible to determine if all involved Cruz. But the nature of the emergencies to his Parkland home included “mentally ill person,” “child/elderly abuse,” “domestic disturbance” and “missing person,” KTLA reported.

What’s wrong with the Olympics isn’t limited to the rapturous reception accorded to Kim Yo-jong in Pyeongchang, South Korea. As Bethany Mandel pointed out here, it’s a disgrace that the sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was fawned over by the international press and favorably compared to Vice President Mike Pence because he refused to play along with that evil regime’s charm offensive. It’s appalling that many are so willing to embrace those responsible for countless murders and torture just to take a swipe at President Trump. But the heart of the problem isn’t the obsession with Trump or

Police Commissioner James O’Neill said it would be “insanity” for the feds to force one state to recognize another’s lax gun laws. A bill making its way through Congress would make gun possession akin to a driver’s license — so one state’s looser regulations against concealed weapons would be protected in tougher anti-gun states, like New York. “I think it’s insanity,” O’Neill told CBS’s “60 Minutes” in an interview aired Sunday night.

Two Massachusetts women are facing multiple charges after they allegedly tied down and burned a 5-year-old girl in a voodoo ritual. The girl, whose name has not been released, is permanently disfigured as a result of a ritual that was meant to “rid her of a demon that was making her misbehave,” the Brockton Enterprise reported. The two East Bridgewater women, identified as Peggy LaBossiere, 51, and Rachel Hilaire, 40, allegedly blew fire over the young girl’s face and cut her arm and collar area with a needlelike object, drawing blood, the girl’s 8-year-old brother told police.

President Trump’s legal team is citing a three-pillar argument to convince investigators, and the public, that President Trump shouldn’t sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller. Mr. Mueller wants access to the president as part of an inquiry into suspected obstruction of justice in the firing of the special counsel’s longtime friend, FBI Director James B. Comey, in May. The president’s legal team has resisted but not given a firm no. Here are the arguments against an interview. • The White House has given Mr. Mueller unprecedented access to White House documents and people. • There is no stated crime. •

A day after the Valentine’s Day massacre at a Florida high school left 17 people dead, the suspect´s public defender called the accused gunman a "broken child." Public defender Melisa McNeill appeared with the school shooting suspect, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, at a brief court appearance today.

Revelations that the FBI had been warned about Florida high school shooter Nikolaus Cruz fit an all-too-familiar pattern, in which apparent law enforcement errors have preceded mass murders. The FBI was warned about Cruz after he posted on YouTube saying he was going to become a “professional school shooter.” The agency said they couldn’t identify the user who made the threat, despite Cruz posting under his own name.

Clapper was asked about a comment Pence made Wednesday during an interview with the news web site Axios. "Irrespective of efforts that were made in 2016 by foreign powers,” Pence said, “it is the universal conclusion of our intelligence
