Trump Administration Is Rolling Back Rules Requiring More Energy-Efficient Bulbs

Trump Administration Is Rolling Back Rules Requiring More Energy-Efficient Bulbs The Trump administration announced new rules on Wednesday to roll back requirements for energy-saving light bulbs, a move that could contribute to the greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change. 

Shopping for energy - efficient light bulbs just got easier! | Since you are buying an energy - efficient bulb , you have to look for lumens rather than watts to discover how bright your bulb will be.

President Donald Trump suggested vanity may be the reason why his administration pulled the plug on energy - efficient light bulbs last week. I know I have no vane people — especially these incredible ladies in the front — but I look better under an incandescent light than these lights beaming down on

On a night that featured the Democratic debate, President Donald Trump said he's being cast in a harsh light.

Trump's complaint wasn't about the candidates vying for the nomination and the chance to make the 45th president a one-termer, but was rather was directed at light bulbs.

"People said what's with the light bulb? I said here’s the story, and I looked at it: The bulb that we're being forced to use — No. 1, to me, most importantly, the light's no good. I always look orange," Trump said during a speech at a House Republican retreat dinner.

Was Trump right when he tweeted about climate change?

Was Trump right when he tweeted about climate change? President Trump made several incorrect statements about the climate and environment.

"We definitely have seen an energy savings , between 0 and 0 a month," he said. And you can save, too, according to the people at Light Bulbs So , does that mean you have to rush to your local hardware store to stock up? No so fast, says Avron Satill, the owner of Light Bulbs Unlimited.

If the packaging isn't clearly marked, it There are several different types of light bulbs that are designed to be energy efficient . Perhaps the single most popular type are fluorescent bulbs

The audience at the 2019 House Republican Conference Member Retreat Dinner laughed at the comment.

It's not the first time the president has been described as orange. The hue of his hair and skin are often a source of jokes among his critics.

He said he's not the only one that the bulbs effect: He told the crowd that they, too, take on an orange tone under the lights.

The Trump administration last week said it would roll back requirements for energy-efficient light bulbs under two previous administrations.

Under one action, the Department of Energy plans to repeal a regulation enacted under President Obama requiring an expanded number of light bulbs in the U.S. to be in compliance with stricter energy efficiency standards; and nixed new energy efficiency standards for all pear-shaped light bulbs that were also scheduled to go into effect Jan. 1, 2020.

The first regulation being targeted was spun off of a 2007 law signed by President George W. Bush that aimed to gradually phase out energy inefficient bulbs like incandescent and halogen bulbs.

"The light is the worst," Trump said at the retreat dinner. He also said that "it's many times more expensive than that old incandescent bulb that worked very well."

"And the light is not as good," the president said, adding that "we're going to sell that, but we’re also going to sell incandescent bulbs."

Environmental groups argue that ending the regulations will result in higher utility bills for Americans and the production of more electricity by greenhouse-gas emitting power plants.

Trump at Thursday's annual retreat also took aim at several Democratic presidential candidates.
