Biden’s proposed ban on gas stoves ‘reckless’ with no basis in ‘solid science’, says utility group – zoohousenews.com
(Natural News) A new attempt by the Biden regime and Democrats to ban gas stoves because of “climate change” has no scientific basis.
According to the American Gas Association (AGA), it would be “reckless” to ban gas ranges, which are vital to restaurateurs and their businesses — not to mention that they’re ideal for cooking and far more cost-effective to use than electric stoves.
As usual, this latest attempt at banning is ideologically and emotionally driven by deranged leftists. It is “not proven by solid science,” warns the AGA.
As a coalition representing more than 200 energy companies that supply natural gas to more than 73 million customers in the United States, AGA will obviously be pro-gas. But what the group says is true: There is no scientific basis, legal or constitutional, to ban the use of gas stoves.
In a statement released this week about the so-called “scientific study” that Biden and the Democrats cite as “evidence” that gas stoves are warming the planet and killing children, the AGA declared that this was utter nonsense.
There has been “no discussion or continuation of the claims in this report, which is being funded by NGOs to advance their agenda to eliminate consumer energy choice and the natural gas option is reckless,” the group warned.
“The authors made no measurements or tests based on real-world use of devices and ignored the literature, including a study with data from more than 500,000 children in 47 countries, which found no evidence of an association between using gas as a fuel to Cooking found and either asthma symptoms or asthma diagnosis.”
“Study” used by Democrats to claim gas stoves are dangerous contains blatant falsehoods
Even if gas stoves used to melt the polar ice caps caused asthma in children — they don’t do either, just to be clear — it’s up to us, the people, to decide whether or not to use one.
Since when has it become standard practice for government bureaucrats to play nanny with anything and everything that might pose a potential risk to someone anywhere? By that logic, everything should be illegal.
Furthermore, the “study” that the Democrats and Biden point to as evidence that gas stoves are dangerous contains glaring falsehoods that can be easily debunked with a simple fact check.
“Any claim that gas stoves exceed the standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency and the World Health Organization is patently false,” the AGA statement continues.
“Regulators like the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) should rely on real data and scientific evidence, not unsubstantiated claims by advocates.”
Should the Democrats and Biden succeed in this latest anti-freedom push, the end result would be further impoverishment of the poor, with rising utility bills and limited access to versatile cooking and heating methods.
“Attempts to stoke consumer fears with baseless claims to justify banning natural gas is a misguided agenda that would not improve the environment or consumer health and impose significant costs on vulnerable populations,” warns the AGA.
Since 1990, natural gas utilities have drastically reduced greenhouse gas emissions — by 69 percent, to be precise — helping households that use gas reduce their carbon emissions by 1.2 percent a year.
Based on this, natural gas is actually cleaner and greener than dirty electricity, which is unreliable and expensive.
“Control: That’s why they want us to get rid of gas boilers too,” noted one commenter on the true agenda. “They strive for total and complete control.”
