Once again those entrusted to look out for Americans have overtly lied to our collective faces.
Even though 38% of households currently use gas stoves for cooking, almost double the rate in states such as California and New Jersey, according to data from the Energy Information Administration, they have been placed on the chopping block from removal nationwide.
As hundreds of the world’s most powerful and influential globalists attended The World Economic Forum (WEF)’s Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland from 16-20 January 2023, radicals in the United States pushed through their goal of phasing out the popular natural energy source.
This all started when one of WEF’s proponents, NJ US Senator Cory Booker, sent a letter in December 2022, to Alexander Hoehn-Saric, the Chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, expressing “concerns” that gas stoves’“risks posed to consumers.”

On Wednesday, The Energy Department proposed new rules that would permit regulators to establish energy consumption standards on the appliances.
This announcement follows conflicting statements coming from the leadership of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) last month.
Consumer Product Safety Commission Commissioner Richard Trumka Jr. absurdly said during an interview that gas stoves constitute a “hidden hazard” and said “any option is on the table” for a nationwide prohibition.
However, CPSC Chairman Alex Hoehn-Saric later clarified that neither he nor the agency planned to outlaw gas stoves after commentators balked at the suggestion.
“Over the past several days, there has been a lot of attention paid to gas stove emissions,” Hoehn-Saric remarked. “Research indicates that emissions from gas stoves can be hazardous, and the CPSC is looking for ways to reduce related indoor air quality hazards. But to be clear, I am not looking to ban gas stoves and the CPSC has no proceeding to do so.”
I want to set the record straight.

Well, Chairman Alex Hoehn-Saric was either lying or over-ridden by the Biden administration as Gas stoves will be subjected to a new “maximum integrated annual energy consumption” standard under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act.
The rules, for which the Energy Department will accept public comment until April 3, would mark a change from previous regulations that prohibited constant burning pilot lights in gas stoves but placed no limits on energy consumption. Conventional ovens would likewise not be permitted to have a control system that utilizes a linear power supply under the proposed rules.
The Energy Department said officials have “tentatively concluded that the proposed standards represent the maximum improvement in energy efficiency that is technologically feasible and economically justified, and would result in the significant conservation of energy.”
The agency added that “products achieving these standard levels are already commercially available for all product classes covered by this proposal” and cited “important and robust” climate benefits.
“The proposed standards are likely to result in environmental benefits in the form of reduced emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases associated with energy production and use, including in-home emissions reductions experienced by consumers, and their families,” the proposed rules said.
A spokesperson for the Energy Department said in a statement to NBC News that the new standards will not immediately constitute a ban on any appliances.
“The proposed standards would not go into effect until 2027 and cumulatively save the nation up to $1.7 billion,” the spokesperson asserted. “Every major manufacturer has products that meet or exceed the requirements proposed today.”
The officials also invoked climate change concerns when discussing phaseouts of gas stoves, even as increased adoption of natural gas serves as a significant driver of lower emissions in the United States.
Critics insist that a meaningful study of the appliances was not completed. “Attempts to generate consumer fears with baseless allegations to justify the banning of natural gas is a misguided agenda that will not improve the environment or the health of consumers and would saddle vulnerable populations with significant costs,” the American Gas Association said in a statement.
