    Not a warmer but a hanger.
    I must ask, are only women to hang clothes?

    Some power is produced by nuclear energy. Not all electricity is created with coal. I am not an electrical engineer so I don't know how fossil fuel plays into the equation. Does all sources of electricity require the use of fossil fuels? If so, is it really 99%?
    About 68%:

    And the TVA uses a variety of sources, one of them being coal.

    ...and yet, sawyer decides to single out only females who use a freaking clothes driers? Men use them too, along with all the other things I've listed.

    Just another one of sawyer's "women are bad because [fill in the blank]" threads. Nothing to see here. Move along.
    Clothes dryers are a huge user of energy and the single easiest fossil fuel consumptive tool to not use, that is why I singled it out. From your response it's obvious you use fossil fuel to dry your clothes.

    I'm not a "warmer" but hanging up my clothes is cheaper than using the dryer. More effective in some ways too.

    A little more time and we can do away with fossil fuels almost entirely, but we have to be patient.

    The sexism in your OP isn't so subtle. Anyway, I think you come to northern Indiana and see how often you can solar dry your clothes. It may be nice and sunny one day, and then it might rain, and then it might drop 30 degrees, and sometimes it will snow because Indiana does not care for your preferences.

    I'm sure it varies from one panty thief to another, but whatever it is, you probably don't want them back.

    For instance our German Shepherd once stole one of my daughter's panties and ate them. After he puked them up she didn't want them back.

    Re: Question for warmer women

    First of all, there are actually many places, particularly any time a person is living in an apartment or housing area, where they can't line-dry their clothes. In fact, I have yet to live in any place during my adult life where I was allowed (due to conditions of my lease) to line-dry clothes, including military housing. In fact, in many apartments, just having the clothes visible from your windows, could be in violation of the lease agreement. And not many apartments have the space to dry clothes hanging up inside, not with the appropriate size load to avoid overusing your washer (washing several small loads), eliminating the entire purpose of not using the dryer.

    Even many homeowner's associations and planned communities have restrictions on using clothes lines.

    Second, not all places are conducive to line-drying clothing. Ever tried to dry clothes on a line on a regular basis somewhere like Seattle, WA?

    Now, given the choice, I would use a clothesline, but it isn't usually an option for me at this time. And it is pretty far down on my list for what's important when selecting a place to live, especially when so many places actually have that restriction unless we are able to actually afford to buy our own home.

    So making a claim that it is "the single easiest" piece of equipment to not use is false. It all depends on a person's situation.

    This would be another issue with my family living back here in NC. Pollen is everywhere right now. My children have allergies. We have a hard enough time keeping them healthy without their clothes being covered in that pollen every single day, even if we could line-dry. And there is no way that I could inside dry enough clothes for my children. Between the time it takes for them to dry and the space, it would cost me much more in costs overall.

It became such an issue that I finally did install a washer/dryer in the unit, which seemed to really make it more attractive to potential renters.

    I assumed that the concern was people were stealing women's laundry.

    What I want to know is, who in Hell is stealing women's underwear, is it other women or unusual men? Don't the thieves concern themselves with sizes, etc? It seems strange to me.
    Actually, on the ship we had a male CS that would sneak into women's berthings and steal dirty underwear from our laundry bags. He was caught redhanded in a berthing doing it, and when they searched his locker later, they found it filled with dirty women's underwear.

    I guess to some people, clean underwear drying on the line might be just as "valuable".
