Energy Sec. Granholm Admits to Having a Gas Stove

'Gas stove banning is all about controlling you... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) In a recent press conference, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm reluctantly confessed that she is the owner of a gas stove.

The painfully embarrassing admission came when Granholm was responding to questions on a departmental memo indicating that efficiency standards will negatively influence the gas stove market.

According to the Daily Wire, the memo detailed standards on energy efficiency, revealing that the impact will reach nearly “half of the total gas cooking top market,” though Granholm insisted that the Biden administration does not want to totally ban the appliances.

“This does not impact the majority, and it certainly does not say that anybody who has a gas stove would have their gas stove taken away,” she told Rep. Dan Newhouse, R-Wash., and other members of the House Appropriations Committee. “There’s no ban on gas stoves. I have a gas stove. It is just about making the existing electric and gas stoves, and all the other appliances, more efficient.”

She continued, citing a study from the Energy Department and claiming that “half of the gas stoves that are on the market right now wouldn’t even be impacted.”

The new regulations would require gas stove manufacturers to ensure the appliance has a “maximum integrated annual energy consumption” standard in the name of “important and robust” climate benefits.

The Biden administration faced extreme backlash after the initial announcement of the regulations, as nearly 40% of American households rely on gas stoves for cooking. In California and New Jersey, the percentage is approaching 70%.

Homes with gas stoves generally report lower amounts of energy usage, as opposed to their electric counterparts. Granholm did not address the greater need for coal or other energy sources required to power electric stoves.

Twitter users once again responded to Granholm’s statements in anger.

“Gas stove banning is all about controlling you,” one user said. “They can turn off electricity, can’t turn off gas stoves. Same with electric cars vs gas. Think about it.”

Along with its attack on gas stoves, the Biden administration is also targeting washing machines in its rush to appease a radical climate alarmist base. Industry analysts have said that the proposed new standards would lead to higher costs for consumers and also leave their clothes dirtier.
