Just when you thought the government couldn’t get any more invasive than the 2010 Census and requirements under “Obamacare” that your medical records be posted on the Internet, my book Climategate warns that soon there could be a “green goon squad” visiting at your door.
In Chapter 10 I describe the 2009 America Clean Energy and Security Act which already has passed the U.S. House and is to begin debate in the Senate April 26th.
Buried in the 2009 America Clean Energy and Security Act are federally mandated energy-efficient building regulations, which supersede all local and state codes and which will be enforced by a national, green goon squad, funded in part by revenues from energy taxes, as well as by an annual $25 million from the Department of Energy “to provide necessary enforcement of a national energy efficiency building code.”
“The legislation also authorizes the Secretary of Energy to ‘enhance compliance by conducting training and education of builders and other professionals in the jurisdiction concerning the national energy efficiency building code,” I write.
“The plan is modeled on building code enforcement in California. Each time a home is built, remodeled, or – in the case of the federal plan – preparing to be sold, a G-man wearing a federal badge and armed with a clipboard will show up at your house to make sure … all of your appliances have been updated with the most recent Energy Star-approved internal communication devices, and that the Home Area Network has been properly installed and connected to your new SmartMeter, whether you like it or not.”
“This is not a helpful plan to assist you in meeting your family budget; it’s a social engineering scheme, designed and promoted by the federal government to change your behavior,” he said. “By having the capability to read your meter many times a day, the utility company is able to effectively establish demand pricing schedules; thus, using too much electricity during the peak periods is going to cost you.”
Furthermore, I write, part of the Big Brother spy system actually already is embedded in the law..
“The term SmartGrid [made law in 2007] refers to a distribution system that allows for flow of information from a customer’s meter in two directions: both inside the house to thermostats and appliances and other devices, and back to the utility. … Once the…SmartMeter [is] connected to the SmartGrid, Big Brother will become the new authority figure in your home. Want to do a load of laundry at 3 p.m. on a hot afternoon in August? Good luck. With a bureaucratic keystroke, anything attached to your [home] could be selectively turned off – or on – without your approval.”
Arm yourself with the truth. Purchase Climategate now and let’s stop this current Energy bill before it becomes the law!
