Ah yes, the know-nothing blowhards are at it again, putting forth made up "facts" simply to scare and confuse the public.
We're referring to a chain e-mail (buyer beware!) that claims new energy legislation will require homeowners to retrofit their homes to be more energy efficient, along with other onerous requirements.
It's nonsense, as the fact-checkers at PolitiFact have confirmed. In fact, they give this rumor their lowest rating on the Truth-o-Meter, the "Pants on Fire" award.
The lies are corrected here.
