In December 2022, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), an agency charged with protecting the public from dangerous household products, determined that natural gas stoves are bad for the environment. The report points to indoor air quality concerns.

Inside the home, stoves are prone to leaking methane into you house. Poorly maintained valves, pipes and hoses and pilot lights that don’t remain lit are atop the list. Besides the fact that burning natural gas produces carbon dioxide.

I’ll NEVER give up my gas stove. If the maniacs in the White House come for my stove, they can pry it from my cold dead hands. COME AND TAKE IT!!

Ask any chef or would be chef about their choice between gas or electric for stop tops, and the majority will always say gas. Gas gets hotter faster, and with experience provides better cooking results.

This latest environmental focused report comes just as power grids across the nation are being tested. Mandates for all electric cars and now a vote by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to ban the sale of new gas furnaces and water heaters beginning in 2030 are leading the charge. California homes will be required to install zero-emissions alternatives, like electric heaters.

Alexander Hoehn-Saric is Chair of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Hoehn-Saric said. “But to be clear, I am not looking to ban gas stoves and the CPSC has no proceeding to do so.”
