In their struggle to destroy America from within, the progressive communist democrats will do everything in their power to cripple the American economy by eliminating access to abundant, cost-effective, clean-burning natural gas in favor of costly, unreliable, and unsustainable “green power.”

Another fear-driven campaign based on trace amounts of nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, and fine particulate matter.

Biden Administration Considers Banning Gas Stoves over Health Concerns

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is set to open public comment on the dangers of gas stoves sometime this winter. The commission could set standards on emissions from the gas stoves, or even look to ban the manufacture or import of the appliances, commissioner Richard Trumka Jr. told Bloomberg News.

[OCS: Trumka Sr, was the corrupt communist thuggish leader of the AFL-CIO and bound to the hip of progressive communist democrats. It appears that the son has taken up the mantle.]

“This is a hidden hazard,” Trumka told the outlet. “Any option is on the table. Products that can’t be made safe can be banned.” <Source>

The push to restrict natural gas is driven by the progressive communist democrats in Congress, notably U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and U.S. Representative Don Beyer (D-VA). And co-signed by the usual suspects, the progressive communist democrats who have authored much of the absurdly restrictive legislation designed to advance the progressive communist democrat’s agenda at the expense of ordinary Americans: Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Martin Heinrich (D-NM), Ed Markey (D-MA), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Patty Murray (D-WA), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Bernard Sanders (I-VT), and co-signed by Representatives Jared Huffman (D-CA), Shontel M. Brown (D-OH), Mark Takano (D-CA), Alan S. Lowenthal (D-CA), Ted Lieu (D-CA), André Carson (D-IN), Barbara Lee (D-CA), Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), Gwen S. Moore (D-WI), Stephen F. Lynch (D-MA), and Katie Porter (D-CA). <Source>

Of course, their justification is “the science,” which they tweak to favor their cause while ignoring the basic facts that all cooking, no matter what the heating method, releases pollutants of varying degrees into the air and that the real issue is adequate ventilation, not restrictions on natural gas. The full text of the Congressional letter calling for restrictions on natural gas can be found here.

Meanwhile, Americans are being punished by exorbitantly high gas prices…

SoCal Gas warns customers to expect 'shockingly high' bills this month: Here's why

A lot of natural gas bills in Southern California are suddenly getting more expensive.

SoCal Gas has already warned customers: "January bills are likely to be shockingly high,"

Lauren Davis is among those shocked customers.

When she opened her family's gas bill this month, she found it was nearly 25% higher than expected.

"I opened the bill and it was $330 and the first thing was, 'What's the temperature in our house?'" Davis said.

After taking a closer look, Davis found out she actually used less gas this year compared to the same time period last year.

But the cost of natural gas supplies nearly doubled, leading to more money out of her pocket.

"For a colder house, less gas used and it's insane," Davis said.

When SoCal Gas warned customers of the expected increase on a website message in late December, the company said natural gas market prices in the West more than doubled between December and January.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the reasons behind the price hike of natural gas included the following factors:

  • Widespread, below-normal temperatures
  • High natural gas consumption
  • Reduced natural gas flows
  • Pipeline constraints, including maintenance in West Texas
  • Low natural gas storage levels in the Pacific region

SoCalGas announced that it contributed $1 million toward its gas assistance fund, which gives one-time, $100 grants to qualifying applicants. <Source>

Our bill tracker notification system shows a projected next bill of over $330.00. Here is a convenient chart of what we paid and the average temperature for the billing period.


Bottom line…

The progressive communist democrats need to cripple our economy using environmental regulations, including climate change and dumping billions of gallons of water into the ocean, purportedly to save a worthless fish known as the Delta Smelt, before they move on to their next targets.

We are so screwed.
