Government vampires ready and waiting to sink their teeth into the fat hog American taxpayer once more

Bureaucrats Will Carry Out Mandatory Home Inspections Under Climate Bill 020709top

The controversial climate bill that is set to be taken up by the Senate on Monday after its passage in the House will legislate home inspections by government regulators who will demand to audit every aspect of your property under the threat of substantial and repeated fines if their visits are denied or their demands not satisfied.

The climate legislation is written in a manner that automatically assumes that global warming is taking place and that it is attributed to rising CO2 levels, despite the fact that this is a highly contentious question and is being rejected by more and more scientists as time goes by.

As Tony Pacheco writes in his excellent article today, the bill will “audit every aspect of your home and life”.

    The bill states every home owner will receive an energy audit. What is a home energy audit? It is an intrusive visit made by the bureaucrats at the Home Energy Team or a similar group. They will examine and report the way you live your life directly to RESNET (Residential Energy Services Network) . Light fixtures, socket types, spas, hot tubs, windows, appliances, walls and roofs will all be under review. Energy tests will be conducted throughout your house. At the end of the visit you will receive a report and a rating. The report will focus on the changes you need to make and the rating is called a HERS rating (Home Energy Rating System). RESNET will perform the audits through authorized contractors. RESNET has adopted the Mortgage Industry National Home Energy Rating Standards. The standards set the national procedures for home energy ratings.

    According to RESNET, an audit consists of:
    Comprehensive Home Energy Audit - A level of the RESNET Home Energy Audit process defined by this standard to include the evaluation, diagnosis and proposed treatment of an existing home. The Comprehensive Home Energy Audit may be based on a Home Performance Assessment (“Comprehensive Home Performance Energy Audit”) or Home Energy Rating (“Comprehensive HERS Audit”), in accordance with the criteria established by this Standard. A homeowner may elect to go through this process with or without a prior Home Energy Survey or Diagnostic Home Energy Survey.

Regulations already in place in some cities for non-residential buildings already carry fines of $2000 a time for preventing bureaucrats from carrying out inspections. These will simply be expanded to cover all premises under the new climate bill.

Under the RESNET standards for a home audit, the following procedures will become law under the climate bill.

704.1.2.3 The Home Energy Survey Professional shall request copies of utility bills or
written permission to obtain the energy use information from the utility company, and use
them to produce an estimate of generalized end-uses (base, heating, and cooling).
704.1.2.5. Minimum Procedures for an In-Home Energy Survey:
704.1.2.5.1.1 R-values of wall/ceiling/floor insulation
704.1.2.5.1.2 Square footage and approximate age of home
704.1.2.5.1.3 Type of windows: glazing type(s) and frame material(s)
704.1.2.5.1.4 Type, model number, and location of heating/cooling system(s)
704.1.2.5.1.5 Type of ductwork, location and R-value of duct insulation, and any
indications of previous duct sealing
704.1.2.5.1.6 Type of foundation is crawl, basement, or slab
704.1.2.5.1.7 Checklist of common air-leakage sites indicating likely opportunities
for leakage reduction
704.1.2.5.1.8 Estimated age and efficiency of major appliances such as
dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, washing machines and dryers
704.1.2.5.1.9 Number and type of hardwired light fixtures and screw-in bulbs in
portable lamps suitable for energy efficient re-lamping
704.1.2.5.1.10 Visual indications of condensation
704.1.2.5.1.11 Presence and location of exhaust fans, and determination of whether
they are vented outdoors
704.1.2.5.1.12 Number and type of water fixtures (e.g. faucets, showerheads)
704.1.2.5.1.13 Presence and type(s) of combustion equipment; identification of
visually identifiable evidence of flame rollout, blocked chimney, and corroded or
missing vent connector.

As we have warned, the climate bill is nothing more than a feast for bloodthirsty government vampires, who are ready and waiting to suck off the fat hog of the American taxpayer once more.

Ohio Republican Senator George Voinovich says it will take a “miracle” for the Senate to pass the controversial climate bill next week, meaning that the legislation won’t be in place before United Nations climate talks in Copenhagen in December.

The Senator told Bloomberg News that the bill contains “a lot of crap” and that cutting CO2 emissions by 17 per cent before 2020 was an unobtainable goal.

Voinovich’s prediction that the bill will fail is echoed by Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma, who said that the “razor-thin vote in the House spells doom in the Senate.”

However, Senator John Kerry claims that the bill will pass the Senate next week but that there won’t be enough sway to approve a global treaty that commits other nations to follow the same regulations.


Boy oh boy.  Isn't this pleasant.
I'll just regress, because I feel I've made myself perfectly redundant.

This type of crap always comes from "it's for your own good, the good of everyone" type of philosophy. It's a power grab, pure and simple.

seriously I don't care how bad you need a job, if you apply to be one of these inspectors, you should be punched in the face repeatedly

Its not as though I have anything to hide, its the principle of the matter. They are trying to use a psuedo-scientific ideology to gain warrantless access to my personal property for the "good of all mankind" and I will burn in Hell before I lay donw and let that happen.

Tator pretty much summed up my thoughts on the matter.  Who in the hell would want to argue in favor of this?  Seriously....mandatory government house inspections and you can get penalized for it?  What the flying #$*#?

Expect these same bureaucrats to be given the power to inspect the amount of junk food in peoples' homes. Then the nanny state will be in full swing. :angry:

This is so much bullcrap.

Where are our dear leftists, who supported that damned a$$hole in his bid for the Whitehouse, on this little bit of legislation?

Well, what are your opinions?  Want them in your house?  You didn't want the government in your bedroom?  Well, you got 'em in there now!

Should these kind of inspections with manditory upgrades occur,especially here in the delta region where money is sparse,I would expect to see more vacant or burned out homes.On the upside,the local arsonists would have plenty of extra beer money which would boost Budweiser's business.

Appearently there are well to do politicians and people in upscale neighborhoods who have lost touch with whats going on in the real world.Most people that live in drafty houses don't do it by choice.Each of us need to contact our representatives and voice our opinion on this type of issue.This is Big Brother activity and it needs to be stopped.I would expect very few to be able to pass this type of inspection.
