(AP Photo/Charlie Riedel, File) Welp, “climate change” — AKA: “global warming,” “climate emergency,” “climate crisis,” “existential threat of our time,” weather — has claimed another victim; this time in the uber politically-correct United Kingdom.
Residential sunrooms, commonly called “conservatories” or “sun traps” in the UK, that fail to meet stringent (and expensive) requirements will no longer be allowed on new construction homes in Great Britain because, according to Daily Mail, they can overheat in “our increasingly warm summers.”
And just how “increasingly warm” are summers in the UK? We’ll get there in a minute. UK bans sunrooms in new construction because of global warming. https://t.co/1kpu9Jq9Wo via @MailOnline — Steve Milloy (@JunkScience) January 20, 2022 Beginning in June, all sunrooms included in new construction projects will be required to show they will not create “unwanted solar gain.” The change, noted Daily Mail, is part of “a raft of measures” aimed at “future-proofing” homes against summers where temperatures are predicted to reach 104º F. Though “well above what is currently experienced in Britain,” such highs would “cause conservatories to become unbearably hot, often increasing the temperature uncomfortably indoors too.”
Wait — so would 200 degrees , but so what?
Incidentally, the average daily temperature in the UK in July is 70 degrees . (More than half of the United States just laughed out loud and said “Hold my beer.”)
And not to nitpick, here — but whose business is it to determine whether a sunroom becomes “unbearably hot” or “uncomfortably warm” throughout a particular residential home, anyway — the homeowner or the British government?
Or, perhaps coming to a country near you, America, the federal government?
According to Daily Mail, the objective of the new rules is to “improve domestic ventilation” and “reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent. (I wasn’t aware that sunrooms emit anything — […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
