Achtung! Der Lightbulb Police Haff Spoken!

December 19, 2007

President George W. Bush signed H.R. 6, the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, into law on December 19. The legislation sets new energy efficiency standards requiring the use of more electricity-efficient light bulbs and appliances with the result that the traditional light bulb will be phased out by 2014.

When President Bush signed H.R. 6 into law on December 16, it ushered in the next era of government interference in our nation’s energy marketplace. If past history is any indication, this surely will mean that future “energy crises” are inevitable.

“President Bush signed the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which will improve vehicle fuel economy and help reduce US dependence on oil,” the White House said in a statement.

It never ceases to amaze this writer that government bureaucrats seem to think they can change the laws of economics and physics with a stroke of a pen! Government produces neither vehicles nor oil, yet its champions believe it can manage both commodities better than the world’s industrialists.

The energy bill requires the auto industry to reduce fuel consumption in most cars and light trucks by 40 percent, raising the fuel efficiency standard to 35 miles per gallon by 2020. It also calls for a sixfold increase in the use of ethanol, alcohol produced largely from corn, to 36 billion gallons per year by 2022. (Just watch what that does to the price of cornflakes, all you thrifty shoppers!)

The legislation also sets new energy efficiency standards requiring the use of more electricity-efficient light bulbs and appliances.Notice that the goal of this legislation is not to increase our energy production, a logical way out of our energy shortages. Rather, it aims to decrease consumption. The rational behind this thinking is that energy consumption leads to the unproven phenomenon of mankind’s contribution to “global warming.”
