tumble driers are a stupid waste of energy

It’s great to see that people in the US are fighting to legalize clotheslines. I find the sight of a clothesline a lot more attractive than most buildings, but never mind the aesthetics, everyone should have the right to dry their clothes in the outside air.

governmental entity from blocking use of clotheslines as part of a larger

measure protecting the use of solar panels:


What a smart law.
