Now They’re Trying To Kill Coal- and Wood-Fired Stoves

First, New York went after gas stoves, this year becoming the first state to ban natural gas in new buildings. Now the New York City climate change police are threatening to put the kibosh on the iconic coal-fired New York pizza.

Pizza first came to New York in 1905 and the city became known for its smoky-crusted coal oven-baked pizza. But new rules would require pizza places with coal- and wood-fire ovens to cut carbon emissions by 75 percent, forcing owners to install $20,000 filters and then hire an engineer to regularly inspect and measure the emissions.

Brooklyn pizzeria owner Paul Giannone says he’s already installed the filters but worries about the impact on the product. He tells Fox News that New York pizza must be cooked over an open flame. “When you cook it in a different kind of oven, you won’t get the results that will produce a Neapolitan-style pizza,” he says. “It’ll be a dying breed…right now, there are some people that barely keep their doors open.”

You heard it first here: very soon the greens will ban backyard barbecues that burn charcoal and, sorry campers, no more roasting marshmallows around campfires that burn wood.
