Be Cool About It 

I recently had occasion to travel both downtown and to the Old Mill District for a mother-daughter movie date. Our plan to beat the heat

I recently had occasion to travel both downtown and to the Old Mill District for a mother-daughter movie date. Our plan to beat the heat was to grab lunch and then duck into an air-conditioned theatre to escape the soaring temperatures.

My daughter and I were appalled to discover that nearly every retailer had thrown open its doors, presumably to entice shoppers inside. At every doorway we were greeted with a blast of cool air, working its way into the 90+ degree outdoors.

Apparently, our local retailers have not received the memo about global warming. Local businesses that choose to air condition need to keep their cool air to themselves - inside. Coal-fired generators are producing the electricity being used to pump cold air into the vast outdoors both downtown and at the Old Mill. This kind of gross consumption is both irresponsible and not sustainable.

Could someone at The Source please re-send the memo on global warming to all of our local retailers?

Thanks!
