While these are clever punchlines, they don't really help. The fact of the matter is, those who are making policy decisions care more about Twitter than Ice.

I don't disagree.

Via https://www.facebook.com/kit.mcglonegre ... 2004922103 that was shared by a Facebook friend of mine, it mentioned "1. HR 861 Terminate the Environmental Protection Agency".

Sure enough, there is https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-con ... e-bill/861.

An excerpt from the Text tab
To terminate the Environmental Protection Agency.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Termination of the Environmental Protection Agency.

The Environmental Protection Agency shall terminate on December 31, 2018.

Outrageous bills that won't pass are routinely proposed in the House.

http://www.eenews.net/stories/1060050976 claims "White House plans to 'close out' Energy Star, other programs".

Anyone have anything to confirm or refute this?

Hopefully simple economics drive corporate desire for efficiency so the floor doesn't fall out.

The Energy Star program is not something I am going to lose sleep over. It's already heavily gamed by manufacturers. Your 4k TV is only Energy Star compliant when switched to the energy mode and guess what, the colors look like crap and you'd never ever leave it on that mode. Same with your fridge, computer, or other products. This is like Volkswagen's "Clean Diesel;" sure it meets that standard when tested but not in the real world.
