Democratic leaders in major cities nationwide have already moved forward with bans on natural gas stoves even as the Biden administration has pumped the brakes on similar regulations at the federal level.
Cities including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and New York City — which are collectively home to more than 10 million Americans — have enacted varying restrictions on natural gas hookups impacting gas-powered furnaces, ovens and stoves.
Leaders of the Democrat-led cities have argued that transitioning away from natural gas would help achieve climate and net-zero ambitions.
"New York City is proof that it’s possible to end the era of fossil fuels, invest in a sustainable future, protect public health and create good-paying jobs in the process," former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said in December 2021. "If the largest city in America can take this critical step to ban gas use, any city can do the same."

Idiots. The effect on “climate change” will be ZERO!!
Do the Darwin awards apply to city governments?
Self-annihilation should qualify for the Darwin awards.
“Leaders of the Democrat-led cities have argued that transitioning away from natural gas would help achieve climate and net-zero ambitions.”
I thought it was to prevent two dozen kids from getting asthma.
These people piss me off.
What gives these people the authority to ban the way people cook and heat their homes? Have any laws been passed by the legislature? I guess these communists just think the people will go along with their dictate.
They are raising our gas prices to where we cannot even afford to leave our heat on right now. I’m turning my heat off during the day and wearing multi layer wraps!
Gas bill projected to be $379 next month... that for only ONE month!!! I live in the outskirts of Los Angeles.
Yet, not ONE peep, about CCP emissions, out of these tax and fee bilking hacks.
When I see Lurch living in a tent and washing his clothes in a creek, I’ll stop burning tires.
I live in the outskirts of Los Angeles.
I’m so sorry!
Here is a good discussion of the benefits of natural gas in NYC and New York State:
The bottom line is this—the poorest people in the city and state are going to suffer the most—and they won’t even know what hit them until it is too late to do anything about it.
Dangerously misleading headline. Democratic cities aren’t just banning gas stoves, they’re banning all use of Natural Gas in new construction homes and businesses, which includes banning natural gas water heaters and furnaces.
The body of the story correctly explains this, but the headline implies that only gas stoves are being banned.
Sadly no. Bad policy usually hurts the governed rather than the policy maker.
Meanwhile NYC wants big business to order their employees to commute to work.
If they really cared about “saving the planet” they would want those employees working from home.
AOC, the insane NY Congressman who looks like a donkey, has considerable influence over woke politicians.
Good Bye to restaurants. and FJB when you leave.
They wouldn’t do it if they didn’t calculate that the sheep would accept it, and in many cases cheer it.
It’s going to get really, really bad.
Bet those gas stoves will stay in the restaurants where the elites dine at. Gas stoves are too slow and uneven for top chefs to use.
New York City will, sooner or later, crumble due to their asinine politics. The fall should be spectacular.
