Biden’s Department Of Energy Targets ANOTHER Popular Home Appliance

NOTE: This article may include commentary reflecting the author’s position.

The Biden administration’s War on Modernity is death by a thousand regulations.

It’s no secret that the Biden admin wants to ditch gas stoves as well as impose harsh regulations on washing machines, dishwashers, water heaters, refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, and anything else they can think of under the guise of “saving the planet” from climate change.

These regulations make things more expensive and people either shell out more of their hard-earned dollars for a basic necessity or do without because the appliance has been priced out of reach.

It’s also a direct attack on the freedom of the consumer to make choices by limiting them for ideological reasons.

Now that the Biden Admin is going to make air conditioning more expensive, the next target for the White House climate change activists living in the Acela Corridor is… ceiling fans.

Earlier this summer, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published a notice of proposed rulemaking regarding energy conservation standards for ceiling fans. If adopted, the new “energy efficiency” standards would apply to all standard ceiling fans, hugger ceiling fans, large-diameter ceiling fans and high-speed belt-driven ceiling fans.
Biden’s Energy Department will accept comments, data and information on the proposed rule no later than August 21.
“DOE has tentatively concluded that the proposed standards represent the maximum improvement in energy efficiency that is technologically feasible and economically justified, and would result in the significant conservation of energy,” the department said.

Ceiling fans are popular because either: (a)people can’t afford to put in air conditioning, or (b) they want to use them instead of turning on the A/C.

If you buy into the climate stuff, the Biden admin is now targeting the more environmentally-friendly option.

Is there no one from the DOE that’s from anywhere south of Virginia?!

What is up with these people and the regulations?

When President Trump took office, one of his first moves was to cut regulations, but Biden put them right in place.

Here is President Trump talking about that very thing this past weekend in the way that only President Trump does.

Biden’s former climate advisor was crowing about all the regulations they had imposed on appliances in 2022.

Let’s not forget that this spring, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said that she believed that the entire U.S. military should adopt an ALL-electric vehicle fleet by 2030.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said that you can save on the high price of gas by buying an electric car.

Vice President Kamala “Identity Hire” Harris was weirdly gushing about electric buses…

…but notice that none of them ever seem to admit where the electricity comes from and what it will do to the grid if we all move over to EVs.

Not to mention that China practically has a monopoly on the raw materials needed to make the batteries and the horrors of what goes on to mine them.

But hey, according to the Left, it’s all about “saving the planet” not about pushing an anti-human agenda.

That’s why Democrats think that all the little people should suffer… after all, “we’re all in this together”, right? Now, where have I heard that before…? Oh, right. It was during the pandemic when politicians and the elite flouted COVID restrictions and raked in billions in profits while insisting that you shut down your small business, not attend funerals and closed the schools and churches. It seems like “we” doesn’t include “them” very often, does it?

Pandemic panic is being transformed into climate panic right before our eyes because the people in power need to keep the public in fear so that they can take even more power.

And they’ll go after everything… right down to your ceiling fans.
