Earlier this week, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission claimed that gas-powered stoves is a “hidden health hazard” for Americans. The federal agency then stated that a “ban on gas stoves is on the table.”
Orange County Registry reported, “Natural gas stoves, which are used in about 40% of homes in the US, emit air pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide and fine particulate matter at levels the EPA and World Health Organization have said are unsafe and linked to respiratory illness, cardiovascular problems, cancer, and other health conditions, according to reports by groups such as the Institute for Policy Integrity and the American Chemical Society.”
How convenient that device allowing people to be self sufficient and not rely on the government or electricity is suddenly deemed “dangerous” by the government.
On Wednesday, Republican Senator Bill Cassidy appeared on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast” and slammed the feds for even considering restrictions on gas stoves, and warned folks that a ban on stoves is “really a backdoor way to go after natural gas.”
He blasted the priorities of the Biden administration, declaring that if they “can’t control the border, they can’t take care of the airplanes, but by golly, they’re going to go after fossil fuel.”
Cassidy said, “[T]his is really a backdoor way to go after natural gas. … This is their kind of, what can we do to inhibit the role of natural gas in our economy? Even though, because, we in the United States have used natural gas instead of coal, we’ve actually decreased our emissions down to less than the emissions we had in 2005, despite a bigger economy, more people, and more manufacturing.”
He added, “This administration can’t control the border, they can’t take care of the airplanes, but by golly, they’re going to go after fossil fuel. And I think that’s the way you have to approach this. And it’s going to damage the rest of the economy, but I’m not sure they care.”
