You’ve probably heard Joe Biden’s Consumer Product Safety Commission is talking about a ban on indoor gas stoves. Millions of Americans prefer gas stoves for lots of reasons including food tastes better when cooked on gas rather than electric and gas stoves are cheaper to install and operate. Moms aren’t going to be happy.
That doesn’t matter to the home appliances police.
Richard Trumka Jr., a Biden commissioner on the CSPC and the son of the late left-wing head of the AFL-CIO, told Bloomberg the ban is justified because gas stoves increase respiratory problems such as asthma among children.
This is a myth promoted by leftwing environmentalists whose real agenda isn’t to reduce asthma but to ban natural gas in order to save the planet. These yo-yos refuse to acknowledge that natural gas REDUCES pollution from emissions that can cause REAL respiratory and health problems.
The American Gas Association notes that neither the CSPC nor EPA has cited gas stoves “as a significant contributor to adverse air quality or health hazard.”
If Trumka and his fellow big brothers do outlaw gas stoves (the ban on incandescent light bulbs just took effect last week), Republicans in Congress must use the Congressional Review Act to force a tough Senate floor vote against American consumers.
It would be much better for Americans to shut down the CPSC than gas stoves.
