The unseen dangers of Jevons Paradox
Another one from my favourite treehugger.com – billboards that kill. To protect us on the road we have laws that stop us from using our phones while driving, stop us from watching TV while driving – all extremely beneficial and important. So why is it ok to have electronic billboards?
I haven’t seen these in Australia (yet) but this one is in Toronto.
As BIG TVs getter cheaper to buy, electricity costs don’t represent their true value and we don’t have limits on carbon emissions, we end up with things like this – TVs in toilets, TVs on rubbish bins and now TVs in places where we shouldn’t have TVs.
Totally unnecessary, definitely not innovative.
