Climate Activists Are Now On A Warpath Against … Gas Stoves?

Climate Activists Are Now On A Warpath Against … Gas Stoves?

November 12, 2019

Thirteen cities and one country in California have put in place zoning codes encouraging or requiring all-electric new constructions, in hopes to move toward an all-out ban on gas prohibiting gas lines to be run in any new construction.

Yes, that means no more gas stoves.

Karen Harbert, American Gas Association President and CEO said “The idea that denying access to natural gas in new homes is necessary to meet emissions reductions goals is false. In fact, denying access to natural gas could make the meeting emissions goals harder and more expensive.”

USA Today reports:

A study by AGA released last year suggested that all-electric homes would pay $750 to $910 a year more for energy-related costs, as well as amortized appliance and upgrade costs.

USA Today pointed out that California is not alone in the movement. New York, Hawaii, Colorado, and Maine all have economy-wide carbon-neutrality goals, and more than 140 U.S. cities have committed to transitioning to carbon-neutral energy.

The eco-left once again advocates for extreme green policies that push cost hikes onto average American households, all while destroying millions of energy worker jobs.
