North Carolina state representative Pricey Harrison has apparently visited Al Gore’s web site one too many times.
Rep. Harrison pushed a bill through the North Carolina House that would have prohibited local governments from banning clotheslines. Harrison claims,
“It’s been a real problem for folks who feel pretty adamantly they want to use clotheslines. It’s their small step that they can take toward global warming issue.”
Drying your clothes outdoors as way to slow the much-dreaded global warming is, of course, the brainchild of Al Gore and is recommended on the web site for An Inconvenient Truth.
Sadly for Pricey, the State Senate clotheslined her bill, the News-Record (Greensboro, NC) reported.
