It's Not Really a Climate Thing: It's about Control

Article:


Fascism, Communism, Nazism -- all gifts to the world from Europe. Now it's nonsensical worries about climate change resulting in deliberately built-in inefficiencies in everything from household appliances to transportation methods.

Compared to the U.S., Europe's love of control-down economics leaves it in the dust:

"The US GDP is five times that of Germany, seven times that of France and UK, 10 times of that of Italy, and 14 times of that of Spain in 2018." And when the UK leaves the EU as I predict it will, the gap will be much larger.

Still, the control freaks of the left are determined to copy the European model and hamstring us in ways that make us easier to control.

I've spent a great deal more time overseas than juniors on their semester abroad in Avignon have, and I can tell you that everything from working mothers to GDP are beset by control economies. It takes forever to do the laundry in Europe. The machines may save energy and water but it leaves housewives having to spend much, much longer to get the family laundry done. So much time it takes to accomplish normal household chores that full-time working mothers are rarer there than here.

When comparing employment statistics between the United States and the EU, we find that:

  • Women are more likely to be managers in the United States than in the EU.
  • Labor force participation for women is lower in the EU than in the United States.
  • Part-time employment among women is greater in the EU than in the United States.

The gender wage gap is larger in the EU than in the United States.[snip] In EU countries, women are also more likely to hold part-time jobs than in the United States. This suggests that EU policies have not helped women remain in full-time positions and advance their careers, opting instead to pursue jobs with fewer hours and more flexibility.


In recent years, motivated by bugaboo claims -- first about depleting supplies of energy and then about climate change ("the social cost of carbon") -- the Department of Energy regulated home appliance efficiency. The net result was reduced efficiency and product performance.

Do homeowners really want to wait two hours (twice what it once took) to get these dishes done? This administration thinks not.
