Pompous PBS: ‘Why Are So Many Americans
and [GOP] Lawmakers Still Enthralled With Gas?’

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 1/23/2023 10:43:11 AM

The Thursday evening edition of the PBS NewsHour devoted 11 minutes to the apparent foolishness…of cooking with gas. Science correspondent Miles O’Brien condescendingly mocked anyone who would dare not throw out their gas stoves and purchase more expensive induction stoves, given the obvious health hazards of natural gas (a danger the liberal press learned about a few days go and won’t stop shrieking over). GEOFF BENNETT, host: There's been quite a bit of heated debate lately about gas stoves and potential government regulation. The fire was lit last week after recent studies linked asthma with the use of gas stoves.

What a phony charge. I am 80 and never had an electric stove and don't intend to get an electric one. Why do people have them? Immediate heat that is easily regulated, turn it off and it's off

I've had electric stoves for longer than I can remember. I hate them. My current house is "all-electric," because the coop has a better rate and there aren't any nat gas lines in the neighborhood (although I live within 20 miles of three major natural gas pipelines. Even my last house, which did have gas heat, had an electric stove. You just can't regulate the heat as well as a gas stove.

Cooking your extra large pork butt roast this summer for 13 hours on an outdoor wood grill is next. Then your fireplace, and your fire pit (OMC S'mores will be illegal), Campfire Girls will have to rename themselves, Will the word "gaslight" have to be given a new definition by the dictionary nazis? And if we enjoy a big bowl of ham and beans and we have the bodily function of passing gas . . . I assume that is now a no no. How about dust? Dust can affect asthma suffers. Let's outlaw dust. I can live without dust. Or pets? All pets must be destroyed. Fur you know can bother some people. Humid summer days can be a problem too. No more hot and humid summer days. Is this all stupid? Yes, it's all stupid. But these elites who want to tell us how to live according to their wishes are stupid a holes. One stupid idea just rolls into another and it snowballs. And in their minds they were put on this earth to lord over us, the unwashed. FJB, f the elites and their ilk. Mealworms in a dark, cold hole in the ground. They really, really do want us to live like that.

Gas is plentiful and continues to function when the power goes out. The enormous cost of switching from gas to electricity for cooking is enormous and installing a couple of solar panels on your roof, if you have access to it, won't provide the energy to cook anything. PBS needs to research and report the truth and stick to that. They no nothing about thermodynamics.

Check the kitchens of the restaurants you frequent, Mr. Bennett. The vast majority of them use gas stoves. I hope you will avoid those restaurants in the future since you’re so concerned about the climate. qq

Because it is more easily controlled, and is THREE TIMES as energy efficient as their damned, stupid electricity. ANY application which used electricity for heat is inefficient since two thirds of the original gas energy is lost in the conversion to electricity. Obviously gas fired hair driers aren't practical, and but as stoves and gas furnaces are essentilaly 100% efficient and very convenient, and easy to modulate the heat. Drop dead, you damned evil, stupid leftist pukes.

Gas stoves are not subject to brown-outs, black-outs, or temporary interruptions when a vehicle hits a local utility pole, heat up faster, can be controlled more easily, and burners off cool more quickly (important if you have young children).

I have a natural gas stove, furnace, hot water heater, and fire place. When the electric power goes down my furnace won't come on because the thermostat is electric. But natural gas is cheaper, faster, and more efficient that electric. My relatives in Tennessee lost electricity for several hours during the last artic blast. They suspect that TVA intentionally threw the switch because the demand for electricity was more than they could supply. I'll stick with natural gas.

Re #17, homes used to have your suggested better ventilation built in. They were leaky and air exchanged with outside air easily. As fuel costs skyrocketed, due to fake shortages and leftist policies, we have reacted by tightening up our homes to save money. And then we have more polluted inside air. You really don't want you home TOO airtight.

Oddly enough, I am currently in the process of getting natural gas to run to my house. For now, it's, so I can have gas logs in my fireplace, then a gas stove when the old electric wears out. I have gotten too old to haul in logs and build fires. The eco-loons want to do away with all fossil fuels. This is just another ruse to speed that up. They are liars and criminals and will do anything to achieve their goals, whether it's stealing elections, smearing or cancelling anyone who disagrees with their politics or world view. I don't think even assassination is beyond them.

A report last week went into detailed mathematical analysis of the previous reports about gas and the claims. And it tore them apart. The original reports did not do statistics correctly. The end conclusion by using the original reports own data and analyzing it correctly is there was no causation and not even any correlation. Nothing. It's all a lie put out by anti fossil fuel advocates.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) introduced legislation Monday to ban “205 military-style assault weapons by name” and prohibit transfer of “high capacity” magazines. Feinstein cited the January 21, 2023, Monterey Park shooting as the impetus for the reintroduction of the “assault weapons” ban. She said, “We were tragically reminded this weekend of the deadly nature of assault weapons when a shooter used one to kill 11 people and injure 9 more at a Lunar New Year celebration in California.” However, Feinstein’s proposed ban would not have prevented the suspected gunman from possessing the gun used in the attack.

As interest rates continue to skyrocket, home prices across the country have continued to plummet — and Goldman Sachs says the declines will only worsen and extend through 2023. In a note to clients earlier this month, Goldman Sachs forecasted that four American cities in particular should gear up for a seismic decline compared to that of the 2008 housing crash. San Jose, California; Austin, Texas; Phoenix, Arizona; and San Diego, California will likely see boom and bust declines of more than 25%. Such declines would rival those seen around 15 years ago during the Great Recession.

Dozens of House Democrats have proposed legislation that would eliminate the debt ceiling, which would allow the government to borrow without any limit set by Congress. The federal government hit the $31.381 trillion debt ceiling last week, and House Republicans are pushing for commitments to cut back on the record growth in federal spending before agreeing to allow more borrowing. But Democrats accuse Republicans of setting up the possibility of prohibiting a debt ceiling hike, which would make the government unable to fund all of its current obligations. Democrats say a better idea is to eliminate all limits on federal borrowing and allow
