Idiotic Comment of the Day - Steve Fielding
DIVORCE adds to the impact of global warming as couples switch to wasteful single lifestyles, Family First senator Steve Fielding says.
He told a Senate hearing on today that divorce led to a "resource-inefficient lifestyle" and it would be better for the planet if couples stayed married.
When couples separate, they need more rooms, more electricity and more water, which increases their carbon footprint.
"We understand that there is a social problem (with divorce), but now we're seeing there is also environmental impact as well on the footprint," Senator Fielding said.
Bravo - a worthy winner.
