This comes after Richard Trumka Jr., the president of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, sparked outrage in January when he declared that a total ban on gas stoves was “on the table.” The administration reacted by claiming that the whole thing was a GOP conspiracy theory. The press obediently promoted that narrative (after initially supporting and advocating for a ban), but here we are, at the inevitable conclusion.
“Half of the gas stove models that are sold across the nation today will not comply with the DOE’s first-ever efficiency standard for cooking appliances, based on a new analysis.”
“The projection, which DOE placed online 2 weeks following the rule’s Jan. 31 release, intends to provide additional clarity on the likely impact of the proposal earlier in the month that is presently getting public comments.”
“According to DOE, the cooking rule will maintain some share of the market for gas stoves with at least one high-input rate burner as well as continuous cast iron grates, the two qualities that DOE considered are public priorities. Both features consume a significant amount of energy.”
“The DOE’s review is designed to assure that devices with at least one HIR burner as well as continuous grates will continue to be offered on the market,” Jeremy Ortiz, a dept. representative, told E&E News on Thursday.”
Oh well, if the new law applies to half of the gas stove market, I guess there’s nothing to worry about. It’s not like killing half an industry through useless executive fiat is a big problem.
This is exactly what the left always does. They propose things outrageous, which elicits significant reactions. Then they imply that everybody who disagrees with them wants to kill children or something. Later, when the backlash peaks, the gaslighting begins, as they claim they never said what they stated. Finally, the original insane concept is backdoored through some shady regulation.
Why is the Biden admin. so focused on gas stoves? The solution is straightforward. It’s part of their cultish quest to halt “climate change.” There is no rational reason to eliminate half of the gas stove market. Natural gas is abundant, and in terms of cost, it is frequently less expensive to use compared to paying for power.
However, the far-left has decided that gas stoves emit too much pollution and must be banned. All in the name of weather control, which is something normal people believe they can achieve.
If this regulation is passed, I hope the Biden administration is sued to death.
