Environmentalists Ban Cooking w/Fire in California

Daniel Greenfield,
Human civilization is based on the discovery of fire, the development of tools and the invention of the wheel.

Environmentalists hate the wheel, aren’t too crazy about tools, and are trying to ban fire.

Fix global warming or cook dinner on a gas stove?

That’s the choice for people in 13 cities and one county in California that have enacted new zoning codes encouraging or requiring all-electric new construction.

Except there isn’t a choice. There’s a ban.

Leftists don’t give choices. They impose mandates.

For proponents, it’s a change that must be made to fight climate change. For natural gas companies, it’s a threat to their existence. And for some cooks who love to prepare food with flame, it’s an unthinkable loss.

Don’t worry. It’s just one of many losses to come.

Probably the biggest stumbling block for most pondering an all-electric home is the prospect of not having a gas stove.

“It’s the only thing that people ever ask about,” said Bruce Nilles, who directs the building electrification program of the Rocky Mountain Institute, a Colorado-based think tank that focuses on energy and resource efficiency.

The association calls the new zoning codes for new construction burdensome to consumers and to the economy. They also say it’s more expensive to run an all-electric home. A study by AGA released last year suggested that all-electric homes would pay $750 to $910 a year more for energy-related costs, as well as amortized appliance and upgrade costs.

Just wait till the real Holodomor gets here, you filthy bourgeouis kulaks.
