The psychotic Democrats are at it again, banning things that American like and want to buy, this time, Biden is moving to start banning lightbulbs again, like the fools in the Obama admin. were trying to do before Trump rolled that back.
The dangerous O’Biden administration is moving to add more costly, needless sops to his green buddies with more Energy Department rules.
Per Fox News:
The regulations, which prohibit retailers from selling incandescent light bulbs, were finalized by the Department of Energy (DOE) in April 2022 and are slated to go into effect on Aug. 1, 2023. The DOE will begin full enforcement of the ban on that date, but it has already urged retailers to begin transitioning away from the light bulb type and, in recent months, begun issuing warning notices to companies.
“The lighting industry is already embracing more energy efficient products, and this measure will accelerate progress to deliver the best products to American consumers and build a better and brighter future,” Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said last year.
According to the DOE announcement, the regulations will save consumers an estimated $3 billion per year on utility bills and cut carbon emissions by 222 million metric tons over the next three decades.
Under the rules, incandescent and similar halogen light bulbs will be prohibited in favor of light-emitting diode, or LED, alternatives. While U.S. households have increasingly switched to LED light bulbs since 2015, fewer than half of households reported using mostly or exclusively LEDs, according to the most recent results from the Residential Energy Consumption Survey.
This is just another way for Biden to pay off his green Nazi partners.
These greenie bulbs are far, far more expensive than regular lightbulbs and will cost Americans three times more to buy.
