First they come for your toilet–(just a little water now)… then they come for your showerhead…then they come for your twinkies…then they come for you!!! Check out the full story to see what the Czars have done. Who are these people? How dare they!
Obama’s Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu, brags that under his leadership, the Department of Energy (DOE) has “accelerated the pace” of regulation and “placed new resources and emphasis behind the enforcement” of new regulations which “increase the stringency” of “minimum conservation standards” for all sorts of home appliances. Look out! The energy police are invading our homes.
In April, DOE issued a new rule that gas fireplace logs cannot use more than 9,000 BTUs per hour, which is about one-tenth of what current gas logs require. This new rule will wipe out the gas fireplace industry, and the gas log in my home would become illegal.
In May, DOE effectively banned showerheads with multiple nozzles by ruling that all nozzles combined will be permitted to deliver no more than an anemic 2.5 gallons per minute. This rule will destroy upscale showers and handheld sprays used by the disabled and elderly.
