US Safety Agency to Consider Ban on Gas Stoves Amid Health Fears - Bloomberg

"A federal agency says a ban on gas stoves is on the table amid rising concern about harmful indoor air pollutants emitted by the appliances."


'Then a member of that five-person commission suggested to Bloomberg News in a story this week that a ban on new gas stoves could be one of many options to be pursued in the future. But the member, Biden nominee Richard Trumka Jr., had previously failed to get his fellow commissioners to support even regulating stoves, as POLITICO's E&E News reported Tuesday. Instead, the commission plans to gather "public input" on stoves' health hazards and possible solutions.

"I am not looking to ban gas stoves and the CPSC has no proceeding to do so," Chair Alexander Hoehn-Saric later said in a statement.

By then, though, the issue had escalated to culture-war level.'

There is a pattern that I see repeated so often that it must be deliberate:  An outrageous idea becomes public.  There is a huge backlash.  Then the political left claims that we didn't understand and they never wanted to do what they previously said that they wanted to do.
