EPA Moves to Regulate How Long You Spend in the Shower

Can we call it totalitarianism yet?

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) wants hotels to monitor how much time its guests spend in the shower.

The agency is spending $15,000 to create a wireless system that will track how much water a hotel guest uses to get them to “modify their behavior.”

Everything works less well in a world under the thumb of envirotyrants:

The EPA also has a WaterSense program that challenges hotels to track their water use and upgrade their restrooms with low-flow toilets and showerheads.

Also, the Beltway bureauweenies think your sheets and towels are too clean:

The program also encourages “linen and towel reuse programs” in guest rooms.

Is there any aspect of your life private enough to be left alone by the unelected, unaccountable, and politically ultra-radical EPA? There is not.

The EPA is concerned that the average shower, which lasts just eight minutes, uses 18 gallons of water, and has asked Americans to reduce their shower length by at least one minute.

You know how progressivism works. Eventually showers will be down to one minute, every other day, then every third day…

Contrary to liberal belief, water is not lost forever once it goes down the shower drain. The same water has been used over and over again since dinosaurs were using it.

Next they will force us to conserve oxygen by breathing less often. Grant requests for the development of special apparatuses to limit air intake are probably being written even now.
