How to Use a Hair Dryer: Don't.
This article is going to be short. Very short. Computers take electricity and I'm not going to waste much of it on why none of us should be using this device! Yes, mountains are being blown up, the boreal forest is being chewed up, and nuclear reactors are hanging out on fault lines in Japan and the US so that we can use this?? Lets face it: none of us need this thing.
One writer spends 38 minutes, and dumps 1.2 lbs of carbon into the atmosphere in over a week for the sake of drying hair faster. That's 43.2 lbs of carbon into the atmosphere per year and 23 hours of a person's life (speaking of which, I've got to go)! Is it the biggest waste of electricity out there? Not compared to fridges and electric cars, but for the love of god, let's stop this thing - you are more beautiful without it and without any toxic hair product that needs it. Air dries hair, and clothes for that matter. Let's give ourselves a free moment instead of blasting ourselves with charred air. "Just a bunch of hot air" is actually our planet.
