Beware the gas police will soon be coming to your house to take you into custody and disconnect your gas stove. Yes, folks here we are living in the land of the free and the home of the brave and having the government threatening to ban the gas stove you have been cooking on for the past 30 or 40 years because they believe it has caused asthma in some children. Let me tell you this has got to be the epitome of stupidity from an administration that has caused a thriving economy to crash and burn because of their claims about climate change. Think about it the very people who are telling us that climate change will cause the oceans to rise are buying multimillion-dollar homes on the beach. Who knows what they may decide to ban next in their efforts to control the citizens of this country?
Let’s take a rational look at why they want to stop the installation and sale of gas stoves. First a bit of history: James Sharp patented a gas stove in Northampton, England in 1826 and opened a gas stove factory in 1836. Always pioneers in the use of gas, English inventors had been experimenting with cooking by gas as early as the 1830s, but it took the maturing of the gas lighting industry to extend the notion to cooking in America. Today, according to the US Energy Information Administration, 35% of American households use gas stoves. They have been chosen because they offer better temperature control, durability, low cost, and speed of heating.
So, for just about 200 years we have been using gas stoves to cook our meals and now all of a sudden, they are going to be declared dangerous. Does this even make any sense to anyone but those who believe in “Climate Change”? Natural gas is used by over 187 million Americans for cooking meals or heating their homes because it is cheap, efficient and safer than electric. According to a 2020 report by the NFPA, households with electric stoves reported fires at a rate 2.6 times higher than those with gas stoves. Equally staggering, the death rate of electric-run households was 3.4 times higher than those with gas appliances — and the injury rate was nearly five times greater.
I would contend that the U.S. Consumer Protection Agency and Joe Biden are more dangerous to our country than all the gas furnaces and stoves currently in use. We are a nation under siege, and it is time that we started fighting back. It is time to just say NO to any more of these idiotic rules the Biden administration is encumbering us with. Every day we find the federal government sticking its nose into our lives with its requirements for solar panels, wind turbines, and electric vehicles.
It is time to say no to these wind turbines that are made in China and will have to be dismantled in 20 years and kill hundreds of thousands of our birds each year. We need to stop the unbridled use of solar panels made in China that we have no means of recycling, and we need to stop this ridiculous move to force us to transition to electric vehicles which cost too much whose batteries are made in China and are proving unreliable and dangerous.
We can’t just declare a shift from a carbon-based economy to a solar and wind-based electric economy overnight or even in 10 or 20 years. Fossil fuels have been and will continue to be used for 80% of our power needs for the next 50 years regardless of what the idiots in bureaucratic Washington say. While they proclaim that climate change will destroy the earth, they have yet to prove any of their far-fetched theories. The move away from fossil fuels will happen in its own good time but only if the alternatives prove to be more economically feasible.
Our current national electric grid has nowhere near the capacity to make such a switch over from carbon fuels to electric. Just look at what a fool California’s governor made of himself when he declared that they will not allow the sale of gas power vehicles in the state and then had to tell electric vehicle owners not to charge their cars because of a shortage of electric capacity. The better question for our climate change lefties is where will we get the electricity to power all the new electric stoves, furnaces, and EVs that the government will require?
The answer is we will have to build more LNG, coal, or nuclear power plants. Whoops! I forgot the climate freaks don’t want any more nuclear or coal-fired power plants, so I guess that leaves only LNG. Hmmm, so what in heaven’s name is the purpose of changing over to electric stoves, furnaces, and electric vehicles if we are essentially going to power them with electricity generated from fossil fuel?
We need to change the people who run our government at the state and federal levels, and by that, I mean not just the neocon politicians but the entrenched bureaucrats whose numbers increase every year. If Americans don’t wake up soon all of the freedoms that are guaranteed by our constitution will be voided by those who would like to enslave us to be governed by the elitists who care only about control and power.
