Energy Efficient Yahoo article
The above link is an article discussing how to get the US government's energy efficient stamp of approval.
The problem being they don't verify energy efficiency. The article claims once the product is launched testing is then done. Classic "get the program set up and we'll figure it out later" organization. Granted, checking after product launch is probably still important because product specs could change before launching in market.
But this feels eerily similar to the recent health bill passage. Set it up, and we'll figure it out later.
Hopefully things work out, though, for the better.... I still haven't reviewed the health bill and all of its possible ramifications (and probably neither has Congress...).
