Because the state of California is totally flush with dollars and citizens absolutely don’t mind being taxed even more, the city of Los Angeles has decided to paint their roads…white.
Apparently global hot air is getting so bad that it’s time to paint the roads a lighter color to reflect the sunlight and drop the temperature.
This is a really great idea, provided global warming is really real.
Plus, it only costs a low, low price of 40 grand…per mile.
Given that LA is among the nation’s largest metros, they’ll eventually have to increase that to 40 billion.
At that rate, no one will be able to afford air conditioning. Brilliant.
Here’s more from Redstate…
The city of Los Angeles is taking going to combat global warming, and now they’re taking it to the streets, and I mean literally.
According to Fox News, LA found that applying a coat of sealant to the road, and giving it a white hue reduces the temperature of the roads:
The LA Street Services began rolling out the project last May, which preliminary testing shows has reduced the temperature of roadways by up to 10 degrees. The project involves applying a light gray coating of the product CoolSeal, made by the company GuardTop.
“CoolSeal is applied like conventional sealcoats to asphalt surfaces to protect and maintain the quality and longevity of the surface,” according to the company website. “While most cool pavements on the market are polymer based, CoolSeal is a water-based, asphalt emulsion.”
This reportedly reduces climate change…somehow.
