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.

Now we have death by microwave oven.

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.

An ICE agent allegedly pulled a gun on a man whose car was being repossessed by the agent’s cousin in The Bronx, then had the victim arrested on bogus charges, a high-ranking police source said Sunday. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Omar Castro was accompanying his repo-man cousin to collect a car late Saturday when the owner, Christopher Jackson, tried to stop them. Castro, 41, blocked Jackson’s car in with his own vehicle in the Foxhurst section, and they began arguing heatedly at around 9:30 p.m. Saturday, cops said. Castro, who was off duty, then allegedly pulled out his service

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. And a schoolmate, Brody Speno, told the network that cops were called to Cruz’s

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.

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. O’Neill said accidents and suicides — in addition to crime — could skyrocket with more out-of-state guns around town. “Right now, we have a good idea of who’s

Munther Omar Saleh, 22, was sentenced to 18 years in prison and 10 years’ supervised release in Brooklyn federal court after pleading guilty last year to conspiring to help the jihadist group and assaulting a federal law enforcement officer. Saleh, a student at Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology in Queens, worked with late British ISIS recruiter Junaid Hussain to construct a pressure-cooker bomb and also discussed potential New York targets with him — including the

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.

Cuomo tucked a provision in his $168 billion budget plan that would amend state education law to make the undocumented students eligible for the Excelsior Scholarship program, which covers tuition costs for students from families with incomes of up to $125,000.

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:
