To understand why Fake News outlets are not willing to report on the EPA’s new Smart Home Energy Management System (SHEMS), simply requires a review of the science that was produced by the Dept of Energy. The USEPA claims their ENERGY STAR® brand “certified” that Samsung, a South Korean multinational corporation was the first SHEMS partner qualified to provide EPA-approved products that will save energy, save money and protect the planet. But should you trust their science? When the EPA quietly announced their SHEMS product line in early 2023, they claimed the ENERGY STAR® is the government-backed symbol for energy efficiency, providing simple, credible, and unbiased information that customers and businesses rely on to make well-informed decisions. At the same time, DOE was producing math models like the following: 𝐸𝐸[𝑦𝑦𝑖𝑖|𝒙𝒙]=𝑒𝑒β0+β𝑇𝑇x𝑇𝑇+β𝑅𝑅x𝑅𝑅+β𝑅𝑅2x𝑅𝑅 2 +β𝐻𝐻x𝐻𝐻+β𝐸𝐸 log 𝑥𝐸𝐸+β𝑆𝑆x𝑆𝑆+β𝑌𝑌x𝑌𝑌+β𝐴𝐴x𝐴𝐴+β𝑇𝑇𝑇𝑇x𝑇𝑇x𝑅𝑅+β𝑇𝑇𝑇𝑇x𝑇𝑇x for its sister agencies at sites like the Office of Innovation, which was first created in 2007. The Therein lies the problem! The media didn’t bury this type of convoluted science because they didn’t understand its meaning, they had to hide that data because the public would have instinctively known it was garbage. That equation wasn’t about advancing any type of Innovation, it was a hyper-complex formula to address the significant losses from a “burst of private investments between 2006 and 2011”. Or what a normal business person might call an analysis of a failed business model.
What that Office of Innovation report provides is a classic example of Orwellian double-speak, in which the Big Lie is hidden in plain sight. The apparatchik knew there was a complete lack of validation for their backward thinking initiatives, so bureaucrats created several obscure entities like the Office of Innovation to hide the failed initiatives being produced by our National Laboratories. Then buried the fact that honest scientist and professionals were beingexcluded from EPA scientific advisory committees. You’re not supposed to remember that the targeting of conservatives by the IRS was one of the biggest stories back in 2011, or that Mother Jones magazine had posted “The Right’s Top 5 EPA Conspiracy Theories” callingright-wingers crazy for suggesting thatObama’s plans to ‘skyrocket’ electrical rates would create a “Global Warming Gestapo”. The media also suppressing stories like when theDOE launched the Save Energy Now program in 2006, a $100 billion boondoggle that had universities conducting a mere 200“industrial assessments” to make some corporate partners more productive and profitable. That scam was used as the vehicle to drive European Socialism into the university leadership through money-making ventures, which had their favorite radical non-profit energy experts producing pathetic assessments that are as worthless today as any FTX crypto-currency. Those bogus reports were part of massive State-funded research programs conducted by non-profit groups like Climate Solutions and the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, which were allegedly searching for advanced energy-efficiency technologies for America’s Industrial Sector, the largest consumer of electricity on the planet at the time. Those programs were all based on a DOE policy that claimed that conserving electrical energy, offered the most cost-effective means for reducing GHG emissions. Which would have also created a $200 billion annual marketplace for electrical and engineering professionals, but nothing for political hacks.
Except, those programs were being financed by the very same utility bosses and bureaucrats that had been directly involved with the California Energy Crisis of 2000-2001, when corrupt West Coast politicians sought to rig energy markets to their benefit through electrical deregulation policies. Their media had to suppress thefraud-filled activities from the phony “Power Trade” and “Fiber Swaps”that drove up electric rates by 50%, in order to hide an even more insidious scam that took place in 2003. That’s when three crooked Democrat governors secretly signed the West Coast Governors Global Warming Initiative, after the US Senate had rejected the UN’s Kyoto Protocols. West Coast citizens would have gone absolutely ballistic had they been informed CA Governor Gray Davis had secretly signed on to that West Coast Governors scam, just two weeks before being removed from office by a recall petition for his role in that two-year long crime spree. The last thing the political elites wanted was for anybody to consider their Settled Science, which had originally been crafted by their non-profit groups, not by National Laboratories. Media groups were already setting up the public for the next major con-job, which was directly tied to the West Coast Governors scam. The US Mayors Climate Protection Initiative earned Seattle Mayor Greg Nichels the 2006 EPA Climate Protection Award, was a nation-wide GHG emission reduction initiative that resulted in total failure. This wasn’t the typical epic failure for the EPA, virtually every single city had failed to meet their Kyoto Protocol goals. That 100% failure rate was already known when Mayor Nichels was awarded that Climate Protection Award, but the City of Seattle continued to pretend it had achieved its emission reduction goals until the public had forgotten about that fiasco.
Nobody in the media cared if politicians had to tell a few lies, the Global Warming myth has always been about forcing independent voters to pick between the Smart Science people or the Knuckle-dragging Neanderthals to represent their interest. Progressive thinkers had no problem demonizing conservative authors like Jerome Corsi for warning that the “energy police are about to invade your home with ‘smart meters’, which they could dismiss as misinformation being pushed by crazy conspiracy nuts. The Media-Entertainment-Complex doesn’t care about the truth on any issue, their only interest is in keeping The Goose That Laid The Golden Eggs all to themselves. What you will never find in government reports is the term “certified” energy efficiency, which is the multi-billion dollar commodity at the center of government green prosperity. Its official value was created in 2009, when the Obama regime released the EPA: Lead By Example guidelines that directed bureaucrats to claim ENERGY STAR products were saving 25% to 50% more electricity than similar products. Of course, there was no evidence to support those chimerical energy-saving claims, and no one was allowed to question the science behind those claims. Those highly-paid pundits have suddenly gone silent now that the Biden regime has began releasing documents like the 2020 Smart Grid report, which verifies many of the most serious allegations of widespread government corruption from the past.
The 2024 election cycle will be all about which candidates can attract the most independent voters, and for the first time in the last three decades the EPA’s ENERGY STAR®brand will play a major role in the election results. Voters aren’t going to be talking about purchasing that ENERGY STAR® product line, but they may be debating why it’s secretly being mandated for use by the EPA.
