Carbon Hypocrisy At The NYT

Ann Althouse spots it, in reference to home pizza cooking:

The key to this recipe is a using the oven and broiler in combination. A hot oven heats the pizza stone, which bakes the bottom of the pizza crust. Then the broiler comes on and cooks the top of the pizza.

It works like this. Heat the oven and pizza stone at 500 degrees for one hour (if using a baking sheet, heat it for 30 minutes). Roll out the dough and top your pizza, then slide it onto the pizza stone or baking sheet. Bake it for three minutes. Then turn off the oven and turn on the broiler. Broil the pizza until golden, crisp and a bit blistery and charred in places for one to four minutes, depending on the heat of your broiler.

Although this sort of hypocrisy is trivial, it is illustrative.  Global warming alarmism is not about the environment; it is about manipulating the economy, controlling others, and limiting their options.  You guys in the sticks should drive Nissan Leafs (Leaves?) but we will continue to enjoy our pre-heated pizza stones and baked +broiled pizza.

As Althouse says, “Shut up about my light bulbs. Just. Shut. The. Fuck. Up.”  Funny, I just re-stocked my hoard of incandescent lightbulbs yesterday, though I still need more.
