Biden admin takes big step toward banning popular home appliances | 29 Feb 2024 | The Biden regime finalized energy efficiency regulations targeting residential clothes washers and dryers in an effort to curb carbon emissions, as part of its broad climate WEF agenda. The Department of Energy (DOE) announced the final rules, which it projected will collectively save American households $2.2 billion per year on utility bills while reducing nearly 71 million metric tons of "dangerous carbon dioxide emissions" over the next three decades. DOE's regulations targeting the popular home appliances are slightly scaled down compared to the agency's draft proposal issued a year ago. Under the regulations, certain less-efficient models of washers and dryers will be barred from being sold, according to DOE. "What we're learning is that the government ought to get out of the business of doing these regulations," Ben Lieberman, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told Fox News Digital in an interview. "The main concern with these negotiated rule-makings is that it mostly involves the manufacturers and the energy efficiency activists," he added. "One wonders how much the interests of consumers are taken into account during this process."
