Over in Europe, the land of verbose iceboxes, an energy-efficient fridge from the future named Coldy 3000 promises to keep your milk extra fresh if you signed a petition this week urging EU decision-makers to adopt stringent efficiency standards for refrigerators, TVs, and other energy-guzzling appliances. According to Azazz.org, these home appliances are the source of half of Europe's greenhouse gas emissions. The petition reads:
The EU must adopt strong efficiency standards for energy-using products like fridges, televisions, and boilers, to reduce Europe's overall climate pollution by 10% per year by 2020. These standards will save consumers money, help save the climate, and spur other nations to take action as well.
