EPA Encouraging Schools to Set-Up Snitch Patrols to Report Energy Wasters

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is celebrating Children’s Health Month this October by providing information and health tips on its website, including the importance of energy efficiency in schools.

On the website page is a link to a 26-page EPA report entitled, “Sensible Steps to Healthier School Environment.” In the report’s chapter on Energy Efficiency, the EPA presents a box with items to help establish “Energy Efficiency Opportunities for Schools.”

One of the items in the box reads, “Educate students and staff about how their behaviors affect energy use. Some schools have created student energy patrols to monitor and inform others when energy is wasted.”

For example, the Arizona Public School’s website provides information for setting up energy patrols. The website states “emphasize social action through environmental education gives students a chance to do something about environmental problems instead of just hearing about them.”

The APS website says that patrol members can be provided with ID tags, vests and clipboards. Their responsibilities include leaving reminders to better conserve energy in rooms they find that have the lights on but are unoccupied.

    Same trash as Hitlers Germany, Snitch Snitch!!! You people better get ready to push back or they will be pushing you in a ditch with a bull dozer.

  • Hitler, Castro, and all communist leaders have set up programs such as these. Next they are going to indoctrinate the kids to spy on their parents. American, when are we going to stop this. The EPA needs to be defunded. They are an organization that is not doing what they originally were suppose to do. They now control and dictate all aspects of American’s lives under the pretention that it is for the good of America.

    I love it. Hitler youth returns, only this time to America. Report your parents, get a reward, and then wonder why you’re suddenly an orphan.

    Time to start getting your kids out of “Government schools”.
    You either will…yes I know its hard…or treat them like the
    eyes of the new Amerikan Stasi. You get a choice, make it
    soon.
