Energy patrols? Really?

( – The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is celebrating Children’s Health Month this October by providing information and health tips on its website, including the importance of energy efficiency in schools.
On the website page is a link to a 26-page EPA report entitled, “Sensible Steps to Healthier School Environment.” In the report’s chapter on Energy Efficiency, the EPA presents a box with items to help establish “Energy Efficiency Opportunities for Schools.”
One of the items in the box reads, “Educate students and staff about how their behaviors affect energy use. Some schools have created student energy patrols to monitor and inform others when energy is wasted.”
For example, the Arizona Public School’s website provides information for setting up energy patrols. The website states “emphasize social action through environmental education gives students a chance to do something about environmental problems instead of just hearing about them.”
The APS website says that patrol members can be provided with ID tags, vests and clipboards. Their responsibilities include leaving reminders to better conserve energy in rooms they find that have the lights on but are unoccupied.
In Alabama schools, the energy patrols are described as groups of 10 to 20 students who are tasked with monitoring the school’s energy use.
“When lights are found on unnecessarily, they are quickly turned off,” the website states. “Periodically, thermostats are also checked to see that they stay at an energy saving 70 in the winter and 78 in the summer. All windows and doors will be noticed for efficient solar energy usage and all water leaks will be reported. Door hangers are left as reminders to do better and to provide encouragement or praise.”

My nephews are being indoctrinated in Spokanistan. My brother calls them the Energy Nazis. Leave a light on and you get the full tree-hugger spiel.

I wonder if these energy experts know that it takes more energy to start a fluorescent light than to let it stay on for an hour or more?

First it is the schools. Eventually (or sooner) it will be the jack booted thugs enforcing Agenda 21.

I can't recall the name of the person who said it - I'm pretty sure he was in a position of high authority in a marxist or national socialist regime - or his exact words, but in essence he said that it was easier to convert a population to his political viewpoint by indoctrinating the youth than by forcibly re-educating the adults.

The indoctrinated youth of my generation are now indoctrinating the youth of the next generation, my children.

Not to worry, I'm going to start drying off from the shower with a blowdryer instead of a towel, and if anyone asks me why, I'm going to say because fuck you, that's why.

Figures - put the people who are least likely to flip the switch when they leave the room in charge of making sure it's done.
