Most folks are now aware that the great state of California has decided to clamp down on flat screen TV’s. As reported in the New York Times, “California regulators on Wednesday approved the nation’s first energy efficiency standards for televisions, requiring their electricity consumption to be cut nearly in half by 2013.”

“This is a consumer protection measure, a measure that will protect the environment and which will save us from building a massive new power plant,” said Karen Douglas, chairman of the California Energy Commission, at a meeting in Sacramento.

What’s a reality show junkie to do? We must protect consumers from themselves.

Of course, the better idea is so simple it flew too far beneath the radar to be noticed – Turn Off the Freaking Television and do something requiring an iota of intelligence. End of problem; consumer is protected.
