Last week New York State became the first state in the U.S. to ban the use of natural gas (stoves, furnaces, boilers) in new buildings. The ban requires all-electric heating and cooking starting in 2026 for new buildings lower than seven stories, and for higher buildings by 2029. The ban is due to the nitrogen dioxide emitted from gas stoves, which causes asthma and contributes to global warming. There have been proposals to ban gas stoves in various states since before 2020. If you believe the media’s slogans about “fighting climate change” and “for your health,” then you might think this ordinance is a good thing. However, I think we need to take a second look to see if this is the real reason.
According to a CNN article, 38% of American homes (as of 2020) use gas stoves. So does that mean that there are no asthma patients in the remaining 63% of homes? I wonder if the figures in the map below from the CNN article show that states with low gas stove use have lower rates of asthma patients.
In fact, Daniel Tormey, president of the environmental consulting firm Catalyst Environmental Solutions, who has a PhD in geology and geochemistry, questions a Stanford University study on methane gas emissions from natural gas stoves released in January 2022.The presentation of this study was covered in all kinds of media, but the way this experiment was conducted was not scientific at all. According to Tormey, this is because the nitrogen oxides (NOx) emitted in two minutes are compared to the NOx federal standard for one hour of outdoor air. The one-hour standard is intended to provide exposures that may occur for one hour, not two minutes. Moreover, the actual wording of the study’s findings does not conclude that the NOx standard is violated; the researchers simply made a comparison and did not actually use it as a criterion for significance.In other words, the study itself seems to indicate that the link between gas stoves and health problems is very weak.
So, what about climate change theory?
Joanna Nova, a scientist, and activist who took the “the Dauntless Purveyor of Climate Truth Award ” at the Heartland Institute’s 15th International Conference on Climate Change in Orlando, Florida this past February, states that carbon dioxide is not raising global temperatures and insists temperatures are not rising.
Also, more than 30,000 scientists have signed The Petition Project. More than 9,000 of them have PhDs. Here is the petitions wording:
“There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.”
So, what was the purpose of this gas stove ban? I think it is not for our health, nor for the planet, but for control, that is, to dominate us.
It will start with gas stoves, which we are not making that big of a fuss about, and eventually natural gas for heating will be banned, and wood stoves will be banned. Artificially induce gas price inflation and force manufacturers to implement a carbon tax, which will result in higher prices for consumers. Next a carbon tax will be imposed on the average individual. Every possible means will be used to make the use of fossil fuels impossible. Many people view the “scenario” like this. So with regard to the carbon tax, we are getting closer to the “Great Reset” scenario of the World Economic Forum. Also, imagine all the devices and equipment we have and use are run by electricity. It’s use can be stopped with the flick of a switch. Can we stop this “domination”?
