Gas Stoves Dangerously Pollute Air But Can They be Banned?

The COVID pandemic has greatly raised awareness of air quality.

Caught now in the cross hairs of home safety are gas stoves.

A federal agency is reportedly considering a ban on gas stoves on the heels of rising concern about harmful indoor air pollutants emitted by the appliances.

That being said, coal and wood are regulated by controlling fuel supply more than usage. So the right move is to ban gas being supplied to homes, which we’ve been seeing already.

In a unanimous vote on Tuesday night, Berkeley became the first city in the U.S. to ban natural gas connections in new buildings. Beginning in 2020, all new buildings in Berkeley, including commercial and residential construction, will be all-electric…

A ban on stoves seems like very wishful/provocative reporting, at the wrong end of the stick.
