proposed clamp down on home water heaters

Original Article

Water heaters could soon be subject to much more stringent efficiency requirements if a recent Department of Energy proposal that has been criticized by Republican lawmakers goes into effect. In a draft rule unveiled Friday, the Biden administration is seeking to compel most electric water heaters to deploy heat pump technology and gas-fired ones to use condensing technology. It comes months after the Biden administration ignited a firestorm over feared stove top regulations, after Albany lawmakers enacted a controversial first-in-the-nation gas stove ban in New York.


Next week, they'll probably ban pharting in bed!!

THE absolutely MOST efficient water heater uses natural gas or LP gas (propane). With these very close to 100% of the energy in the gas goes into heating the water. If you are extremely stupid, you can burn the natural gas in a power plant, and make electricity....where the energy in the resulting electricity will be about 1/3 of the energy in the natural gas. Then you can use that electricity in an electric water heaters - thereby using THREE TIMES as much natural gas to heat your water. Stupid as all get out. Stay away from our water heaters, you econazis.

Heat pump technology? Are the fools going to pay for heat pumps which don't work in the winter?

The Demfascists come after our gas stoves, our generators, our dishwashers, and now our water heaters. And they have the nerve to compare Republicans to Nazis.

False headline. Within the article there is a mention of an effort, which occurred prior to the scheme discussed in this story, to shoot down the elimination of gas stoves. Nothing about the latest outrage. In any case I’m not interested in GOP complaints. I want to hear how our representatives are going to halt Biden’s nonstop interference in our lives.

The pair of 7-Eleven employees in California who recently thrashed and held down a suspect in their store are not in danger of facing charges. The workers took matters into their own hands when a man allegedly tried to steal cigarettes from behind the counter, Fox 11 reported Wednesday. However, the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office said Tuesday the employees were not in trouble. In a statement, District Attorney Ron Freitas said, “The Stockton 7-11 Store Clerks are not & have never been, suspects of the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office.” [Tweet] “Any Investigation going forward is to hold accountable the individual who threatened & attempted to rob them.

Joe Biden’s swing through Arizona and New Mexico to push his climate change agenda and “Bidenomics” has not gone well so far. As we noted, he designated a new monument which is raising a lot of questions about whether this move will harm our national security. His move also helps the Russians by cutting off our ability to develop uranium deposits within the ambit of the land blocked off by the national monument. The land in question is almost a million acres, including land far away from the Grand Canyon, the area the new monument designation was supposed to protect.

As RedState reported, a Sikh convenience store owner turned the tables on a shoplifter as he attempted to get away with thousands of dollars of stolen merchandise. The viral scene unfolded in California, showing a man shoveling entire shelves worth of tobacco and other products into a trash can while taunting the owner with proclamations that “there’s nothing you can do.” The shoplifter quickly learned that wasn’t true, though, as he was tackled to the ground and beaten with a rod.

There have been an estimated 27 billion people on earth over the course of human existence. The world's population today is approximately 8 billion, with 19 billion human beings having preceded us on our planet. Each of those lives, no matter how modest, was a miraculous affair filled with hope, joy, pain, and perhaps disappointment — but nonetheless life. Each was important, and the most important thing was, and is, liberty. Long before charters and constitutions devoted to liberty, Sophocles wrote something similar: "Numberless are the world's wonders, but none more wonderful than man" ("Ode to Man" from Antigone).

In a recent critique, television star and car enthusiast Jeremy Clarkson has voiced serious concerns about the safety of electric vehicles, calling them “bloody dangerous.” His concern goes beyond cars to other devices powered by batteries, like electric bikes. Clarkson writes, “People have died, and that’s not surprising when you learn that a fully charged e-bike contains the same explosive energy as six hand grenades.” In a recent critique of electric vehicles published in the Sun newspaper, Jeremy Clarkson, known for his forthright opinions on automotive matters, has cited numerous incidents of electric cars and bikes catching fire, including fires on ships carrying electric vehicles.

It’s been nearly four months since Dylan Mulvaney revealed his partnership with Bud Light, and consumers have yet to forgive the brand. Sales are down and the company has lost billions in market value, laid off workers, and frozen hirings. Time has yet to heal the wounds inflicted by the ill-advised marketing gimmick. Things have gotten so bad that many Anheuser-Busch distributors have basically given up on getting their lost customers back, according to a report from the New York Post. “Consumers have made a choice,” an executive at a Texas-based beer distributor told the outlet. “They have left [Bud Light] and that’s how it’s going to be.

I really don’t like the President of the United States. Joe Biden has spent his life working tirelessly toward one thing more than anything else: to convince people he is a good man. He is not and never has been, as evidenced by how it took four years and political pressure from New York Times columnists to acknowledge the existence of one of his grandchildren. Now that people are beginning to notice and ask questions about things like how he got so rich, Joe has defaulted to the only defense left for him: He’s not corrupt, he’s just a horrible parent and brother.

U.S. District Court Judge Maryellen Noreika, who is handling Hunter Biden’s currently defunct plea deal, doesn’t seem too pleased. And why would she be? On Wednesday, she was presented with an absolute circus after the DOJ tried to pass off an unprecedented agreement whereby Hunter Biden would receive near global immunity. Instead of putting that in the plea deal itself, it was buried in a pre-trial diversion agreement for a gun charge. After pressing the two sides, it became clear that a wink-and-nod deal had been formulated whereby the immunity would stand, but wouldn’t be made public as part of the plea.

It appears the battle over Florida’s black history curriculum has entered into a new phase. A fiery debate was ignited over parts of the state’s educational standards on chattel slavery. Now, the discussion has continued to rage on the airwaves and interwebs. The debate centers on a line in Florida’s standards which reads: “Instruction includes how slaves developed skills which, in some cases, could be applied for their personal benefit.” Democrats in Congress are now taking a questionable step in response to Florida’s curriculum. The Congressional Black Caucus is now calling on the Biden administration to use federal power to possibly compel the state’s government to alter its standards:

Current polls, pundits, and politicos insist that the 2024 race is a sure rematch between former President Donald Trump and incumbent President Joe Biden. It may well turn out that way. But in past election cycles, summer polls 15 months before the general election usually did not mean much. In December 2003, the CBS poll headline blared, "Dean pulls away in Dem race." Howard Dean would eventually be clobbered by nominee John Kerry. In the Gallup Poll of late June 2007, Hillary Clinton still continued to enjoy her wide lead in the Democratic primary over eventual nominee and elected president Barack Obama.

After the FDA approves the human drug for sale, does it then have the authority to interfere with how that drug is used within the doctor-patient relationship? The answer is no," Jared Kelson, representing the doctors, told the appeals court.

Multiple law firms have announced plans to potentially launch legal action against Hawaiian Electric, claiming the state's largest power supplier may be at fault for the unprecedented wildfires on the island of Maui. At least one class action lawsuit is reportedly being considered, which could see the company blamed for the disaster that has so far killed at least 80 people and razed over 2,200 buildings to the ground. 'From what we’ve learned, we believe the Lahaina fires could have been prevented had proper safety precautions been taken,' said Gerald Singleton, a lawyer involved with the potential legal action, to the New York Times.
