Is this "code" going to be law? Is it going to be enforced? I am on my way to Maine and want to build a cabin that is very efficient but by using a design that is not full of fluffy moisture trapping "insulation". Will this be allowed?

Best,
Leiif

This 'code' is Federal. It is happening nation-wide. It was a part of the U.N.'s agenda-21. The USA being subservient to the UN was mandated to comply with it.

Every structure, every where with special attention that there shall be no exceptions, must all be 'proven' to be energy efficient.

Tested, fixed and tested again to ensure that they all conform.

This even includes centuries old stone structures like revolutionary war forts with no heat. It was worded in such a manner to be draconian on purpose, to force everyone to lessen their 'carbon footprint'.



One of the many facets of trying to get this done, is no body has any idea how to do it.

There is legislation to make this code a suggestion. It would be voluntary on the part of the homeowner. The legislation is pending. We'll know by June.

Do the states have a say in this? If someone has a pre-existing structure will it be grandfathered in?

Another question? I was lurking and searching the Maine threads some time back and someone mentioned acquiring land by paying the unpaid taxes and clearing any liens by buying out the lien-holder for a reduced rate. I can not find that thread any longer. Does anyone have any knowledge about that process?

Best,
Leiif

edit: I will check back tomorrow, have a good night

That would be interesting to see the UN and governments enforce.... in the vast shack slums of Mexico City, or along The Ivory Coast, or in Bangladesh....or anywhere else billions of people on this planet live in cardboard, sheet metal, or other improvised shacks and huts. There but for the grace of G-d go I.

My guess is that they won't bother those places........No, they'll just harass those in the developed world....I guess that means us.

I better leave this thread alone now before I say something that really gets me in trouble.

Just like Kyoto, it is really aimed at US!

Does anyone have a link to info on this "law" and the one about making it a "suggestion"?

Also, does anyone know how to find out about my previous question?

As I am not a regular contributor, should I start a new thread? Or does someone know a better way to try and find the old thread about tax lien purchases in Maine?


Thanks for the input thus far,
Leiif

Sorry Leiif, some of us, me especially, kind of hijacked your discussion.

I have to leave for work, but I found this on Agenda 21: Agenda 21 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia There's a bunch more to be had simply by Goggling "Agenda 21". The debate is as to how much the federal government is actually implementing this. As for me, I see the connection, but I'll leave others to their opinions.

As for tax lien sales, perhaps others have information. In any case, I'll see what I can dig up later today.

Best,
