Dark Money Group Behind the Movement to Ban Gas Stoves

Dark Money Group Behind the Movement to Ban Gas Stoves

March 3, 2023

Early this year, seemingly out of nowhere, there was a push to ban gas stoves. Suspiciously, everyone had the same concerns. It is now being reported that an environmental dark money group is behind this push to ban gas stoves.

Fox News reports,

“The founders of Rewiring America, an environmental advocacy dark money group behind the push to regulate and ban natural gas-powered stoves, have a significant financial stake in the green energy push. Alex Laskey, Saul Griffith and Ari Matusiak – who together founded Rewiring America in 2020 – have all pursued various wind, solar, electrification and energy efficiency ventures, some of which have netted them millions of dollars in buyouts or received significant federal funding. The three co-founders have simultaneously advocated for policies benefiting those ventures through the nonprofit.”

The group has a strong connection to the gas stove study published in December that gave everyone identical talking points. Rewiring America, research associate Talor Gruenwald was listed as the lead researcher on the study. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm then promoted the study, which spurred the movement to ban gas stoves. 

“It’s a shocking amount of money that they’re hauling in with this scheme of theirs,” Tom Pyle, the president of the Institute for Energy Research, told Fox News Digital in an interview. “I call it Big Green Inc. It is literally a business for these guys and they cloak themselves in the mantra of trying to save the planet. But, really, this is just very sophisticated self-dealing.”

It is no surprise that the Department of Energy is promoting and focusing on studies from eco-left dark money groups. In November, it was reported that Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg met regularly with dark-money green groups. The Biden/Harris administration is making a habit of meeting with these groups. This study and how quickly the administration and prominent eco-left leaders fell in line shows once again that dark money groups are pulling the strings on Bidens war on energy.
