The federal government is considering a nationwide ban on gas stoves, claiming pollutants from the appliances are a “hidden hazard.”
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) claims gas stoves can cause respiratory and health issues.
“This is a hidden hazard,” agency commissioner Richard Trumka Jr. told Bloomberg. “Any option is on the table. Products that can’t be made safe can be banned.”
Trumka qualified his remarks Monday on Twitter, claiming, “To be clear, CPSC isn’t coming for anyone’s gas stoves. Regulations apply to new products.”
Thanks for your interest!
To be clear, CPSC isn't coming for anyone's gas stoves. Regulations apply to new products.
For Americans who CHOOSE to switch from gas to electric, there is support available – Congress passed the Inflation Reduction Act which includes a $840 rebate. https://t.co/fcmWMSSfE5

“For Americans who CHOOSE to switch from gas to electric, there is support available – Congress passed the Inflation Reduction Act which includes a $840 rebate,” he added.
The World Health Organization (WHO) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) both claimed gas stoves are unsafe due to the release of carbon monoxide and other pollutants.
“Roughly 35% of homes in the U.S. have gas stoves that, according to reports, release carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and other matter that the World Health Organization and EPA deemed unsafe because they can potentially cause cardiovascular problems, cancer and other health conditions,” Fox Business reported.
California is already leading the charge against the banning of gas appliances, announcing last September the state will ban natural gas furnaces and water heaters by the year 2030.
“Together furnaces and water heaters typically that run on gas account for 90% of gas use in the average California household. So just eliminating these two sources of pollution is going to be a big win for our air quality and our health as well as for addressing climate change,” environmental advocate Leah Louis Prescott stated, according to Fox 5 San Diego.
However, Bloomberg News admitted that California’s gas appliance ban won’t have any measurable effect on the state’s carbon output.
“Since California still gets about 40% of its power from fossil fuels, the transition won’t eliminate carbon emissions,” Bloomberg reported.
As we reported, the UN-backed Great Reset is a Trojan horse pretending to help fight climate change, when in reality it’s about reorienting the global economy into a centralized, automated top-down control grid where human beings are phased out in the “4th industrial revolution.”
