You Went Full Carter, Man. Never Go Full Carter

Great, now it’s really 1979.

Complete with the requisite Carter-esque v-neck sweater-vest, Albuquerque’s mayor tells residents to lower their thermostats:

Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry is asking residents to turn their thermostats down to help the state curb its current natural gas shortage.Berry is asking residents to turn their thermostats down 10 degrees and wear heavier clothing to ease the state’s gas problems.

I love the local ABC affiliate’s headline: “Mayor Addresses Gas Shortage — Turn Thermostats Down, Berry Says.”

Now there’s some major Giuliani-esque can-do problem solving.
