Don’t Allow Trump’s Hygiene Routine to Sway Energy Regulations

Target: Dan Brouillette, United States Secretary of Energy

Goal: Abandon plans to eliminate vital water-saving regulations for plumbing.

The Department of Energy has proposed scrapping a 1992 law which restricts water flow in showerheads to 2.5 gallons a minute. The Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), signed into law by George H. W. Bush, has saved taxpayers and consumers millions in energy and water costs. Repealing it would allow multiple showerheads to emit 2.5 gallons per minute all at once. Experts have pointed out that this would not only increase the cost of water and energy, it would even be enough to flood bathrooms.

The proposed cancellation is a response to complaints made by President Donald Trump, who seems to deny that current fixtures allow him to maintain “beautiful,” “perfect” hair. The president’s complaints came during a visit to an Ohio Whirlpool Corporation plant, as well as at various times throughout his presidency.

In a country in crisis due to ongoing unrest and the worst pandemic in a century, the last thing on anyone’s mind should be plumbing. Scrapping energy- and money-saving regulations now is not only inappropriate, it is destructive. Sign the petition below to demand that this absurd and unhelpful plan be dropped.


Dear Secretary Brouillette,

Your department’s proposal to repeal the 1992 Energy Policy and Conservation Act is based on no evidence and would help no one. The decision to scrap essential energy regulations at the whim of the president is shameful pandering, and an utterly inappropriate waste of time and energy amid the country’s current problems.

I demand that you abandon any plans to end this beneficial law and instead focus on helping those who need it most by enacting sensible energy policies.
