California To Ban Large TV Sets?

Last January I wrote about Great Britain planning to ban plasma TV sets to combat alleged global warming.

At the time I mentioned that it looked like California would follow Britain's lead, and according to Ed Morrissey (click title of post), that ban is likely to happen later this year.

As many as 25 percent of all TVs sold in California may be banned. Most of them will be over 40 inches.

Less freedom and more pain for California's flailing economy. Just what we need.

Update: Here are some related charts of interest from Power Line.

This is outrageous. It's so true - California is suffering so bad on all the other levels. Why on earth is anyone there worrying about banning tvs? And anyway, isn't that just going to create more "environmental waste" when all the banned sets are dumped?

All good points, Casey. It amazes me what they are wasting time on when our economy is crashing and burning.

This is just surreal. Absolutely surreal.

Dana, I commented to someone else today that "I feel like the world is getting crazier and crazier, faster and faster, and I can't opt out of the insanity." I'm sure you understand that feeling. :)

Best wishes,

What would we do without the government to hold our hand? :P
