Hopefully Steven Chu and his successor were listening to last night’s State of the Union. President Obama proposed a new goal for his administration, the Department of Energy and America to achieve – 50% reduction of vampire energy loss over the next 20 years.
“I’m also issuing a new goal for America: let’s cut in half the energy wasted by our homes and businesses over the next 20 years,” said President Obama about a third of the way through his first State of the Union address of his second term. He added incentive to states as well, “The states with the best ideas to create jobs and lower energy bills [...] will receive Federal support to make it happen.”
Additionally, the President issued an ultimatum to Congress on climate change in which he promised to act if they fail. “I urge this Congress to pursue a bipartisan, market-based solution to climate change.” He continued, “But if Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will. I will direct my Cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.”
No rational person can argue that saving energy that is otherwise wasted is a bad idea. If an electronic device or home was manufactured with Vampire Proof™ technology that eliminates vampire energy loss, America could achieve this goal well before 20 years.
