[D]on’t expect any media coverage of this repeal soon, at least not until after the EPA’s big Awards banquet in Washington DC on April 26. Government and media elites will gather to honoring 152 businesses and organizations with prestigious 2017 ENERGY STAR awards, and there is simply no need to spoil the party with inconvenient facts.
ENERGY STAR is arguably the most corrupt federal program in US history, built entirely on myth, fraudulent scientific research and bogus technical reports. Which explains why most Americans have never heard of the ENERGY STAR program, and couldn’t locate a single shred of evidence supporting the EPA’s phony claims of hundreds of billions of dollars allegedly saved by EPA Partnerships. …
The US has never developed a National Standard for the measurement and verification of energy efficiency in products, all energy-savings claimed are estimates made by bureaucrats. Yet lawyers somehow managed to turn the ENERGY STAR brand of ‘certified’ government energy efficiency into a multi-billion dollar commodity, and relied on mainstream media to promote their delusional energy-saving claims to the Global community.
What they didn’t disclose is that ENERGY STAR’s big break came rather suddenly in 2009, when the Obama Administration released the EPA: Lead By Example guidelines and began claiming that ENERGY STAR products save 25-50% more electrical energy than other identical products. No technological breakthroughs were involved in this miracle, only the reshuffling of words on paper were required to create incredible value for this rare commodity.
