They’re Coming For Your Range

The feds have published a Notice of Proposed Rule-Making; Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Consumer Conventional Cooking Products.

Yes, the same tyrannical morons who brought us poorly flushing toilets, low-flow showers, and dishwashers and clothes washer that take all day to poorly clean, are now going for your stove.

The Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended (“EPCA”), prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including consumer conventional cooking products. EPCA also requires the U.S. Department of Energy (“DOE”) to periodically determine whether more-stringent standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would result in significant energy savings. In this supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (“SNOPR”), DOE proposes new and amended energy conservation standards for consumer conventional cooking products, and also announces a public meeting to receive comment on these proposed standards and associated analyses and results.

No, let’s back up. Show me where in the Constitution is your specifically delegated power to regulate toilets, shower heads, dishwashers, clothes washers, light bulbs, or ranges.

That was not a rhetorical question.

I’m waiting.

No? Then let’s look at an apparent Administrative Procedures Act violation in your NPRM.

Meeting: DOE will hold a public meeting via webinar on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. See section VII of this document, “Public Participation,” for webinar registration information, participant instructions, and information about the capabilities available to webinar participants.

Are you getting administrative guidance from the ATF?

You’re going to hold a meeting on January 31, 2023?

And you just announced it on February 1, 2023?

The proper role of any government is not to cripple power infrastructure and then compensate by likewise crippling the citizens’ property.

The rule is improper, unlawful, and most importantly unconstitutional. And the people are getting tired of micromanaging microcephalics.

  1. Yep, 100%. Energy shortage? Clean water shortage? Why not build more infrastructure. Creates jobs and incomes don’cha know? Can’t have the serfs improving their lot apparently. Also they don’t seem interested in maintaining current infrastructure.

    I remember when the water closet reduction started out as legislation in Congress. They haven’t seen that many letters and grams in, well, since most of them have been in office. Long time. So they deep sixed the legislation. Lo and behold in a couple of years it comes through the bureaucracy as a regulation. No voting. F’ing weasels. And that’s a mortal insult to all weasels. Now they do not pass legislation and go right to regulation. Payback is going to be a stone cold bitch when it comes.
