(Canada)'Beer fridges' present a gassy problem


environment.newscientist.com

Getting rid of vintage “beer fridges” – secondary fridges which many North American and Australian homes boast – could have a significant impact on household greenhouse gas emissions, suggests a new study.

Beer fridges are additional fridges that are generally used to keep beer and other drinks cold on top of a household’s primary fridge for food. One in three Canadian households has a second fridge, many of which are ageing, energy-guzzling models, according to Denise Young, a researcher at the University of Alberta, Canada.

It's actually a good idea:

The Great Refridgerator Roundup


That old, inefficient second fridge of yours is wasting up to $150 per year in electricity. Book an appointment today and we will come pick it up for FREE – we will even haul it out of your basement for you. Then we will take care of it in an environmentally responsible manner. When we are finished recycling and reclaiming material, all that’s left for the landfill will just about fit inside a cowboy hat!


Used it ourselves.

They'll have to pry my beer fridge out of my cold dead hands!

Ok all kidding aside, I dont actually have a beer fridge, i keep my brews in the regular fridge and I see no reason to keep an old fridge just to put beer in it.
