Climate Change Bill Includes “Green” Requirements for Homeowners

July 5, 2009

  Hidden in the cap and tax climate change legislation that the House passed last week is a MANDATE that all residential, commercial, and government buildings will have to meet certain “green” guidelines.

  That means in order to sell your house you will have to meet these guidelines, you will be REQUIRED to make certain improvements to your house to make it more “green” before the government will allow you to sell it. (That sure is going to help the slumping housing market, isn’t it?)

   But don’t be too worried, the government is going to let you keep one of your rights as a homeowner. The government is going to let you work on your house all be yourself if you want to. Just like if they thought you were a big boy or girl. They will probably even let you use sharp tools too! YIIPPPEEEE!!!!

individual homeowners are even allowed to retrofit buildings themselves. The bill gives specific protection to individual owners’ rights to choose who inspects and retrofits their property

  So the government will still let you work on your house if you want to, but they can demand that you make certain changes to your home and this is supposed to make us feel better?

  Once you have your house inspected for its “greendom” by the government and you make the required changes that the government imposes on you, you then have to let the government back into your house to see if it meets their approval. Then and only then will you be allowed to sell your house. Do you see the theme here? Government, more government. More government intrusion.

  This bill just keeps on getting worse, the government keeps on growing and they keep on closing in on us. We have to defeat this bill.

    Tell me please, is this cap and trade bullshit a government program or a new novel by Stephen King?

    The Federal Government may let you work on your house, but the local regulations might not depending on what work is to be done.

    And it’s “Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue”.

    Each and every day our freedoms are getting stripped away, and the ‘Elite Media’ is letting it happen without even a slight mention.

    You know, I am looking at the language of the bill and I am just not seeing this requirement. The linked article does not pin point the language that says that you cannot sell your home unless it has been retrofitted. I found credits for retrofitting and credits for mortgages of energy efficient homes but no restrictions. It’s a huge bill… would you know where that language is?

      I tried to pull up the text of the bill but my computer froze (kind of ironic) so I haven’t seen the wording. I was going by the article I linked to.

        Although I still don’t see specific language, it does look like it leaves the door open to being a requirement for FHA and VA loans (possibly loans through Freddie and Fannie as well).

    Cap and Trade is nothing but a power grab. The elite media will do nothing until their power, their rights are on the chopping block.

    You are ALL TOTALLY WRONG! This cap and trade bullshit is the best scam ever. It’s all about selling imaginary government approved points and making money over fist. My only question is: How do I get in on it??? This is the future of making money. Wise up guys and get in with the program before it’s too late.

    So then isn’t it up to the realtor to enforce the new “rules”? I really don’t see them being enforced all the time. I’d let my house rot into the ground before I sold it to a lib who insisted on the house being “greened”.

    In 1492, Chemor, chief Rabbi of Spain, wrote to the Grand Sanhedrin, which had its seat in Constantinople, for advice, when a Spanish law threatened expulsion.2 This was the reply:

    ” Beloved brethren in Moses, we have received your letter in which you tell us of the anxieties and misfortunes which you are enduring. We are pierced by as great pain to hear it as yourselves.

    The advice of the Grand Satraps and Rabbis is the following:

    1. As for what you say that the King of Spain obliges you to become Christians: do it, since you cannot do otherwise.

    2. As for what you say about the command to despoil you of your property: make your sons merchants that they may despoil, little by little, the Christians of theirs.

    3. As for what you say about making attempts on your lives: make your sons doctors and apothecaries, that they may take away Christians’ lives.

    4. As for what you say of their destroying your synagogues: make your sons canons and clerics in order that they may destroy their churches. [Emphasis mine]

    5. As for the many other vexations you complain of: arrange that your sons become advocates and lawyers, and see that they always mix in affairs of State, that by putting Christians under your yoke you may dominate the world and be avenged on them.

    6. Do not swerve from this order that we give you, because you will find by experience that, humiliated as you are, you will reach the actuality of power.


    2. The reply is found in the sixteenth century Spanish book, La Silva Curiosa, by Julio-Iniguez de Medrano (Paris, Orry, 1608), on pages 156 and 157, with the following explanation: “This letter following was found in the archives of Toledo by the Hermit of Salamanca, (while) searching the ancient records of the kingdoms of Spain; and, as it is expressive and remarkable, I wish to write it here.” — vide, photostat facing page 80.

    ~ The above was quoted from Waters Flowing Eastward by Paquita de Shishmareff, pp. 73-74
