More on the War with Fossil Fuels
Washington, D.C., January 11, 2023
Now they’re coming after gas stoves! Incredible. This made news yesterday when bureaucrats in the Biden administration suggested a ban on gas stoves, citing asthma concerns based on a study that appeared to have been funded by a radical environmental group.
Here we go again with the war on fossil fuels.
Gas stoves are used in millions of homes and countless restaurants across the nation. It’s the preferred method of cooking for most professional chefs, and for many types of ethnic and cultural foods. And yet somehow, this group of righteous pencil pushers in the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) believe they have the power and responsibility to outlaw gas stoves.
We’re talking about a cooking method that’s been around for more than 100 years. This is NOT something Americans should expect the federal government to concern itself with!
Republicans in the House ought to figure out whether CPSC is either (1) overfunded with too many board employees, (2) under poor leadership, or (3) has misaligned priorities. It's probably all three.
