Congress Critters Practicing Green Flight Patterns
Perhaps its the idea of Roasted World sinking in. Or, a desire to save money. In either case, US Senator James Inhofe deserves an honorary Tree Hugger award for co-sponsoring this bill. Via Federal Times - "Thousands of federal buildings would get more efficient lights and other equipment to reduce energy use under a Senate bill with bipartisan and White House support. Introduced March 27 by the unlikely duo of Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and James Inhofe, R-Okla., the legislation would require the General Services Administration to create a program to hasten installation of energy-efficient technology in more than 8,000 federal facilities it owns or leases. The bill would require GSA's Public Buildings Service to improve insulation, update heating and cooling systems and add energy efficient lights at the buildings, with the goal of reducing their energy costs by 20 percent in five years.""The bill's nine co-sponsors say it will reduce emissions and cut costs. The cost-cutting consideration likely earned the support of Inhofe, the committee's ranking member, who famously called global warming concerns, "the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people."
