Biden Administration Seeks (Again) To Ban Gas Stoves

Please Share This Story!
The “green” agenda is patently insane to try to ban natural gas from cooing and heating. Yet, it keeps coming back like a bad penny. This madness is anti-human and anti-civilizational, and yet people are still not rejecting these Technocrat ideologues who are convinced that their pseudo-science is correct and that we should “follow the science”. Don’t follow! ‚ĀÉ TN Editor

Gas stoves, which are used in about 40% of American homes and are loved for their easy and speedy adjustability, may be banned by the Biden administration over concerns about their production of indoor pollutants.

“This is a hidden hazard,” U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) commissioner Richard Trumka Jr told¬†Bloomberg.¬†“Any option is on the table,”¬†said¬†the¬†son¬†of the late¬†AFL-CIO president.¬†“Products that can’t be made safe can be banned.”¬†¬†

Gas stoves are even more prevalent in restaurants:¬†76% of them use gas.¬†‚ÄúThere are certain¬†types of food¬†and certain culinary techniques that really require a flame¬†in some way, shape or form to work and also for consistency and quality purposes,‚ÄĚ Mike Whatley of the National Restaurant Association told¬†The Hill.

A whopping 94% of restaurant owners who use gas say a ban would hurt their business. Some chefs are already rebelling:

In December,¬†New Jersey Senator Cory Booker and Virginia Rep Don Beyer, both Democrats, wrote a¬†letter¬†to the safety commission urging them to address gas stove emissions, citing their adding to a “cumulative burden” on “Black, Latino and low-income households.”¬†The letter was co-signed by¬†18¬†other legislators.

The EPA and World Health Organization say gas stove emissions are implicated in a variety of maladies, from respiratory illness, cardiovascular problems to cancer. A study last month said 12% of childhood asthma is attributable to the stoves.

Skeptics say any type of cooking produces potentially harmful emissions.¬†‚ÄúVentilation is really where this discussion should be, rather than banning one particular type of technology,‚Ä̬†Jill Notini of the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers told¬†Bloomberg. “We may need some behavior change, we may need [people]¬†to turn on their hoods when cooking.”

In October,¬†Consumer Reports¬†advised readers to consider making their next stove an electric one¬†after the group’s tests detected “high levels of potentially dangerous nitrogen oxide” emitting from gas versions.

‚ÄúOur tests found NO‚āā at levels above those recommended by some public health organizations for indoors, particularly when the ranges were used without ventilation and when a burner was set on high,‚ÄĚ said¬†Consumer Reports’¬†Ashita Kapoor. ‚ÄúThat‚Äôs alarming.‚ÄĚ

The CPSC’s next step toward prohibition: An open, public-comment period on the dangers of gas stoves is expect to begin later this winter.¬†Short of a ban, the agency could set emission standards.¬†

Meanwhile, some states and municipalities are already targeting gas stoves. A New York City ban on natural gas lines in new buildings shorter than seven stories will take effect later this year. A ban on such lines in taller buildings will start in 2027.

If you want to front-run a federal ban — or if you just like free money from the Fed’s printing press¬†— see if you qualify for a cut of the¬†$4.5 billion in electric appliance rebates¬†created by the so-called Inflation Reduction Act.

Qualification will hinge on where you live and your income relative to the median household income (HHI) in your area. For example, if you make up to 80% of the median HHI, you get up to 100% of the cost of the appliance or $840, whichever is less. Between 80% and 150%, you get a 50% rebate. Above that: No rebate for you!

A huge part of the left out equation is the fact that a huge percentage of natural gas is from fracking. So when it is burned the toxic fumes of all the types of benzenes, and all the other highly toxic substances that is in fracking fluid (which since it’s considered a proprietary liquid we don’t even know the extent of toxicity) is released in the form of fumes. One of the reasons the bottom of water heaters are now closed, and the flue size increase.

Agreed, Propane and Gas stoves are a life saver when power goes out in winter. I live up North and twice our power was out close to 24 hours with freezing temperatures…December 2021 and January 2022. Without our propane stove, me and my fur baby would have frozen to death. Focus on venting solutions. Why do they not address the PM/polluting our air we breathe from constantly poisoning our skies and planet from spraying?…..Because “control freaks” could really care less about our health or well being. They are best at creating chaos and death. They are the “cult of death”.… Read more »
