In what has been likened to a war on consumers – by making their appliances cost more and perform worse – it appears that your electric toothbrush still might be safe.
But few other appliances found in American households are.
A new report from Just the News gives a “partial” list of those items being targeted by Joe Biden.
- Gas stoves
- Clothes washers
- Refrigerator freezers
- Air conditioners
- Pool pumps
- Battery chargers
- Ceiling fans
- Microwave ovens
- Portable electric spas
- Air compressors
The report confirmed Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, who recently was in the news for allowing a staff member to park a gas-powered car at an EV charging station to save the spot so her entourage of electric cars wouldn’t have to wait in line, at one point announced that the Biden administration had taken 110 actions on energy efficiency standards in 2022 alone.
And there was the threat of more to come.
One recent order involves gas-powered furnaces.
But Fox News reported, “According to the current federal Unified Agenda, a government-wide, semiannual list that highlights regulations agencies plan to propose or finalize within the next 12 months, the Biden administration is additionally moving forward with rules impacting dozens more appliances.”
And Fox Digital charged, “Over the last several months, the Department of Energy (DOE) has unveiled standards to make various appliances…more efficient, and experts have said this would worsen product quality and lead to higher prices.”
Ben Lieberman of the Competitive Enterprise Institute said in that report, “It’s just spreading to more and more appliances. It seems that almost everything that plugs in or fires up around the house is either subject to a pending regulation or soon will be.”
He added, “These rules are almost always bad for consumers for the simple reason that they restrict consumer choice.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation noted Biden claimed changes must be made in furnaces to cut “greenhouse gas emissions.”
That announcement alone noted the DOE was working on new rules for 24 appliances.
The DOE also is working on coercing communities to adopt its ideology through building codes that would allow only appliances and features endorsed by Biden.
Hot water heaters also are in the bull’s-eye and one report noted what Biden wants done to clothes washers and refrigerators will cost consumers “billions.”
When the New York Post disclosed Biden’s agenda for ceiling fans, it noted the coercion already was sparking pushback from Republicans – as well as corporations that make the products.
And for very little benefit. One estimate put Biden’s plan in the range of saving consumers $39 in energy costs – over the years-long life of a ceiling fan.
Regarding water heaters, the administration claims its changes will “curb carbon dioxide emissions.”
In that report, Lieberman explained, “It’s just spreading to more and more appliances. It seems that almost everything that plugs in or fires up around the house is either subject to a pending regulation or soon will be.”
IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Believe it or not, today’s high priests of climate-change apocalypse are correct in predicting that in just a few short years, the earth will become miserable, wretched and almost uninhabitable by human beings. But the grim future they envision won’t come about because of “catastrophic climate change,” but rather, because of the implementation of their completely insane and truly catastrophic agenda.
As Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore recently admitted, “If they actually achieve Net Zero, at least 50% of the population would die of hunger and disease.” Likewise, writes energy expert and author Alex Epstein: “Today’s proposed policies to rapidly eliminate fossil fuel use would, if fully implemented, have truly apocalyptic consequences – making the world an impoverished, dangerous, and miserable place for most people.”
Question: When the scientific case for global warming apocalypse consists primarily of a 1-degree Celsius rise in temperature over more than 130 years, what explains the obsession with an imminent, climate-caused end of the world?
Although many groups have been drawn into the Climate Change Cult – from the news media (which has warned of climate catastrophe, either global warming or a “new ice age,” for over a century!), to innocent school kids indoctrinated by hysterical leftist teachers, to liberal Democrats who claim “climate change” will destroy the earth in a few years – the REAL villains are the national and global elites who KNOW the apocalyptic global warming religion is just a cruel hoax, but promote and exploit it as a means of accomplishing their ultimate goal: Transforming and ruling the world.
The heart and soul of today’s bizarre, pagan climate-change religion, and the global elites’ strategies for using it to rule all of mankind, is powerfully exposed and illuminated in the September issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, an issue titled “CULT OF THE CLIMATE APOCALYPSE: The elites’ breathtaking strategy for ruling the world.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
