The President who keeps the Oval Office at "tropical hot house" temperatures wants to micro manage even further the light bulbs that others can use
He pointed to the state of California as an example of what stricter energy efficiency standards could achieve. In the late 1970's, California enacted tougher energy policies, which the president said, helped create millions of jobs. Today, he said, Californians consume 40 percent less energy per person than the national average. . . . .
If we are concerned about the country's wealth, why do we care about whether California was able to force down its energy use? Wouldn't that simply be a measure of how much poorer California was relative to what it otherwise could have been?
Of course, all this comes from a President who keeps the thermostat in the Oval Office well above 72 degrees -- "aides have likened it to a tropical hot house."
