President Joe Biden is continuing his "climate change" crusade by going on the offensive against gas stoves.
"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," Bloomberg reports. "The US Consumer Product Safety Commission plans to take action to address the pollution, which can cause health and respiratory problems."
According to the report, the move comes after a flawed study claimed gas stove use is connected to childhood asthma and other respiratory problems.

Junk. We have used gas stoves for hundreds of years. There is no correlation between an increase in childhood asthma and their use. This is an overreach based on a subjective hypothesis from a bad study. More fodder in the war on gas that will hurt low-income homes and small biz. pic.twitter.com/i3mOlT5T9D— Chef Andrew Gruel (@ChefGruel) January 9, 2023
US gov considers gas stove ban bc of studies showing “climate/and health risks”— John Hasson (@SonofHas) January 9, 2023
One of the main studies, from Stanford, only measured 53 homes—all in CA
The targeting of gas stoves has people up in arms and pointing out that yet again, climate change policies will negatively affect the middle and lower classes the most.
My first thought is how will I heat my tortillas???!!! Biden so racist.— Rachel Campos-Duffy (@RCamposDuffy) January 9, 2023
This war on gas stoves is (no surprise) a war on the poor & working class since cooking w/ gas is cheaper. Biden Administration always looking for new was to make Americans poorer! https://t.co/WFsZBXyffm
