Internal White House Memo Shows Administration is Serious About Gas Stove Ban

Remember that "just kidding" that the White House put out about banning gas stoves?

Well, it turns out, this was very much a very real conversation that was going on among the powers that be.

An internal memo has been leaked that shows just how serious they were taking this issue.

Boiling Point

In a memo dated October 25, 2022, Biden's Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) was having a real discussion about the dangers of gas stoves.

Richard Trumka, one of the appointees, had written to another member of the commission that there was enough real date to propose a ban. His memo was titled, "NPR Proposing Ban on Gas Stoves (Indoor Air Quality)."

In that memo, he writes, "The need for gas stove regulation has reached a boiling point. CPSC has the responsibility to ban consumer products that emit hazardous substances, particularly, when those emissions harm children, under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act.

"Emerging evidence is sufficient to conclude that gas stoves in homes emit toxic gasses that cause illness and that lower-cost, safer alternatives are available."

He would continue on that gas stoves have already been banned in new construction in at least two cities, New York and Los Angeles due to "for health and inequity reasons" and because gas stoves "strongly contribute to climate change through greenhouse gas emissions."

He continued, "There is sufficient information available for CPSC to issue an NPR in FY 2023 proposing to ban gas stoves in homes. The additional work needed to complete an NPR is primarily economic; the available health and scientific evidence on illnesses caused by the relevant gasses at the concentrations present in homes with gas stoves already exists."

Yet, Trumka and other administration officials have recently stated an outright ban was never a real consideration, which is obviously a lie based on this memo.

For instance, after the reports leaked out about a possible ban, CPSC Chairman Alexander Hoehn-Saric stated, "CPSC is researching gas emissions in stoves and exploring new ways to address any health risks. CPSC also is actively engaged in strengthening voluntary safety standards for gas stoves."

There is now bipartisan legislation in the Senate sponsored by Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) to block such a ban.

Over and above the ban, we really need to focus on the fact that yet again, this administration is being less than transparent with the American people, caught in another outright lie.
