Joe Biden is a fanatic committed to reshaping everyday life to cut carbon emissions.
He put a modern convenience in his crosshairs.
Now Joe Biden is sweating bullets after a leading Republican exposed this war on appliances.
President Joe Biden is trying to ban gas stoves and other common appliances to combat climate change.
House Republicans put him on notice for opening another front in his war on appliances.
The House Small Business Committee demanded answers on a proposed regulatory change for commercial refrigeration units that will crush small businesses with higher costs.
Committee chairman Roger William (R-TX) sent a letter to Department of Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm about strict, new proposed energy efficiency standards for commercial refrigeration units.
“The Biden Administration continues to push a radical climate agenda that makes it more challenging to own a small business,” Williams told Fox News Digital.
Refrigerators are in the crosshairs of the radical environmental movement for their carbon emissions and chemicals used for cooling.
“The President’s energy efficiency regulations are forcing Main Street to change their operations to foot the bill for the Green New Deal,” Williams continued. “This Committee will continue its fight against burdensome regulations and strive to make life easier and more affordable for our job creators.”
New energy efficiency standards are being used to make appliances more environmentally friendly and massively drive up their costs.
The Small Business Committee is standing up for small business owners by investigating proposed rules and regulations targeting common appliances.
The Energy Department is asking for public comment if the current efficiency standards for commercial refrigerators, freezers, and refrigerator-freezers are stringent enough.
This is the first step towards bringing sweeping changes aimed at improving their efficiency.
“As a result of this effort, DOE may propose and adopt more stringent standards or issue a determination that no amendments to the current standards are required,” the White House Office of Management of Budget said about potential commercial refrigeration regulations. “Once completed, this rulemaking will fulfill DOE’s statutory obligation to either amend the standards for this equipment or determine that the standards do not need to be amended.”
The North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers warned the Energy Department that it was alarmed at the pace the agency was proposing new regulations aimed at its members.
Williams said that it was important that the voices of small business owners be heard before the Energy Department forces new changes on commercial refrigeration.
The Biden regime is moving forward with dozens of new regulations aimed at appliances like pool pumps, battery chargers, ceiling fans, and dehumidifiers.
Federal regulators are coming after more and more appliances according to Ben Lieberman with the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
“It’s just spreading to more and more appliances,” Lieberman said. “It seems that almost everything that plugs in or fires up around the house is either subject to a pending regulation or soon will be. Consumers aren’t going to like any of it.”
Joe Biden is hell-bent on sending the cost of appliances through the roof to combat climate change.
