Why did the heat pump break up with the air conditioner?

Because it was tired of all the hot air!

Was the air conditioner a politician by any chance? 😜

Layman's explanation of how a PV Solar Panel works:

There are these two silicon atoms sitting on a roof in the sunshine.

A photon comes hurtling along at the speed of light and runs straight into them.

"Hey!" shouts one. "I've just lost an electron!"

"Are you sure?" asks the other.

"Yes. I'm positive!"

Save energy... recycle electrons!

Why did the electrician refuse to marry his girlfriend?

Because he wanted a current relationship, not a grounded one!

For those who didn't appreciate the point made by @editor above, can I point out that a grounded currant can easily be identified because it's still attached to the bush.

The alternative scenario has no reference to ground.
Here's such a circuit with direct currant:

And, for the benefit of doubt, this is alternating currant:

I'm afraid you are using the wrong colour berries, they need to be brown and blue. 😋

Hmm... It's the wrong time of year for blueberries.

I'll see what I can manage in autumn, which is when I'll also be getting ready to plant bulbs. 😋

A police officer in a hi-viz jacket turns up unexpectedly at the gates of heaven.

"I'm sorry," said the gate-keeper. "But I can't find your name on the list."

"Does it change things if I'd just saved someone's life?" asked the officer.

"Of course," replied the gate-keeper. "Tell me what happened."

"Well, I was in my patrol car parked on a motorway bridge, when I noticed a Climate-Change Protester run down the bank onto the carriageway. There was a lorry in the left lane, heading towards him. So I got out of my car, leapt onto the parapet and waved my arms above my head."

"Gosh!" exclaimed the gate-keeper. "Did he see you in time to avoid the protestor?"

"Oh yes," the officer responded. "At the last moment he swerved to the hard-shoulder, but his cab hit the bridge support and I got jolted off. The last thing I remember was falling and then being knocked sideways by the articulated trailer as it jack-knifed towards me."

"That's a very courageous act." said the gate-keeper. "You may step forward into Paradise."

...

A few moments later, another man wearing a hi-viz jacket turns up at the gates of heaven.

"I'm sorry," said the gate-keeper. "But I can't find your name on the list."

"To be honest," said the man, "I hadn't expected to be here either. But at least I died whilst saving someone else's life."

"And that makes all the difference," explained the gate-keeper. "How did it happen?"

"Well, I was driving my articulated lorry along the motorway," he started, "when I noticed a man standing on the edge of a bridge, waving his arms and about to jump."

"Oh, that's shocking!" gasped the gate-keeper. "What did you do?"

"I was going to pull into the centre lane, when I saw there was another idiot lying there who'd probably jumped just before him. So I flung the wheel the other way, and ploughed into the bridge support instead."

"I'm sorry to hear that," the gate-keeper replied. "But for your selfless sacrifice, you may step forward into Paradise."

...

A little while later, a third man arrives at heaven's gates. He's also wearing a hi-viz jacket, but it's torn to shreds and his hands are covered in tar.

"I'm sorry," said the gate-keeper. "But I can't find your name on the list. How did you die?"

"I was hit by a police officer!" protested the man.

"Really?" exclaimed the gate-keeper. "What were you doing wrong?"

"Nothing!" the man retorted angrily. "I'm a peaceful protestor. There I was, busy gluing myself to the motorway... "

The science of Climate Change demands neither compromise nor clairvoyance;

You won't gain anything by striking a happy medium...
... whoever she may be!
