Stove banners offer gaseous excuses for their panic

“After my column last week about environmentalists’ apparent desire to make our lives miserable as they try to improve the environment, I heard from progressives who accused me of jumping on the Fox News bandwagon. That’s because I pointed to their latest crusade to highlight the supposed danger of natural-gas stoves. … Few regular readers could accuse me of jumping on right-wing bandwagons. Despite some overstatement and inaccurate reporting – and try to find any issue that doesn’t garner hysteria on social media – the conservatives are right on point. Climate warriors are indeed trying to ban gas stoves, although they are smart enough to offer a patina of deniability.” (01/20/23)
