Affordable, reliable energy is critical to human well-being. A top official of the US Department of Energy did something last week that had not been done in many, many years. In his Statement for the Record, Daniel R Simmons, Assistant Secretary, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), presented a pro-consumer brief (as in real consumerism, not what experts think is best for consumers with another agenda in mind) in a hearing on appliance standards before the US House of Representatives.
