The Biden regime announced their plans this week to crack down on air conditioning to fight “global warming.”
The regime wants to reduce hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) by 40% by 2028. HFC is the chemical used for refrigeration and to keep your house cool in the summer.
But don’t worry, there are always ice fans.
This is what Democrats call progress. Meanwhile, the rest of the developing world is running their air at full blast.
The Biden administration has announced plans to continue its reduction of hydrofluorocarbons, releasing a new rule that aims to cut the United States’ use of the greenhouse gases by almost half starting next year.
Hydrofluorocarbon is a category of greenhouse gases used for refrigeration and air-conditioning as well as in a number of other applications, but is linked to global warming.
The final rule announced Tuesday by the Environmental Protection Agency will reduce HFC consumption in the United States based on historic levels by 40% between 2024 and 2028.
The reduction will be on top of the 10% drop in HFC consumption that was implemented in 2022 under the bipartisan 2020 American Innovation and Manufacturing Act that sets the goal to reduce the production and consumption of HFCs by 85% by 2036 in an effort to prevent a 0.5 degree Celsius increase in global temperature by the next century.
Sanders preferred ultra-low temperatures of just 60 degrees F … In addition to blasting the air conditioning during warmer weather, according to the book, Sanders also much preferred taking trips on board private jets — a surprising revelation about a Congressman who has consistently called for action on climate change and more recently endorsed the Green New Deal.
Flying Private: “Charter flights were a revelation to him,” Dovere wrote in the book, as quoted by Fox News. “He would always be a little embarrassed pulling into the private terminals, but boy, did he get a kick out of not worrying about being late for a flight that couldn’t take off without him.”

Time Mag: “AC Feels Great, But It’s Terrible for the Planet. Here’s How to Fix That.”
Excerpt: “The troubled history of air-conditioning suggests not that we chuck it entirely but that we focus on public cooling, on public comfort, rather than individual cooling, on individual comfort. Ensuring that the most vulnerable among the planet’s human inhabitants can keep cool through better access to public cooling centers, shade-giving trees, safe green spaces, water infrastructure to cool, and smart design will not only enrich our cities overall, it will lower the temperature for everyone. It’s far more efficient this way.
To do so, we’ll have to re-orient ourselves to the meaning of air-conditioning. And to comfort. Privatized air-conditioning survived the ozone crisis, but its power to separate—by class, by race, by nation, by ability—has survived, too. Comfort for some comes at the expense of the life on this planet. It’s time we become more comfortable with discomfort. Our survival may depend on it.”
