Climate alarmists are now saying that leaking gas stoves are a threat to the earth and are looking to ban them from your kitchen.
That’s right, if the fittings on your gas stove leak, YOU are responsible for destroying the earth, as far as these global warming religionists are concerned.
According to wire service Reuters, some liberal-infested cities in the U.S. are moving to outlaw gas stoves in apartment complexes or residential buildings to stop global warming.
The latest attack by government regulators on American life first showed up in (where else but) extremist, left-wing city of Berkeley, California.
Berkeley, California, in July became the first U.S. city to pass an ordinance banning gas systems in new buildings, and it may soon be followed by many others, according to interviews with local officials, activists and industry groups.
Los Angeles and Seattle are among those considering laws that could drastically reduce natural gas consumption.
“Berkeley is the opening salvo,” said Bruce Nilles, managing director of the left-wing think tank Rocky Mountain Institute’s building electrification program.
These left-wing, authoritarians are now amping up the alarm saying that leaky gas stove fittings “harm the climate more than carbon dioxide.”
This is just the latest step in the move to destroy the burgeoning U.S. energy industry.
Notice, that even clean-burning natural gas does not satisfy global warming religionists. They want that industry destroyed too.
Other cities are also looking to poke their noses into your kitchens. San Luis Obispo, California, Brookline, Mass., New York City, Seattle, and cities in Minnesota, at all looking at these overweening regulations.
Look for this in your city.
