Good News: Cities Look To Increase Your Energy Costs By Banning Natural Gas

I would love more of my home to run on natural gas, rather than just the heating and fireplace. Sadly, the stove is electric as is the water heater. It would be less expensive. Now, though, cities are doing all they can to increase energy costs for their misguided Cult

No more fire in the kitchen: Cities are banning natural gas in homes to save the planet

Fix global warming or cook dinner on a gas stove?

That’s the choice for people in 13 cities and one county in California that have enacted new zoning codes encouraging or requiring all-electric new construction.

The codes, most of them passed since June, are meant to keep builders from running natural gas lines to new homes and apartments, with an eye toward creating fewer legacy gas hookups as the nation shifts to carbon-neutral energy sources.

For proponents, it’s a change that must be made to fight climate change. For natural gas companies, it’s a threat to their existence. And for some cooks who love to prepare food with flame, it’s an unthinkable loss.

But, it’s not just cooking. It’s heating and water heaters, fireplaces, clothes dryers.

Natural gas is a fossil fuel, mostly methane, and produces 33% of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions from electricity generation, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Carbon dioxide is the primary greenhouse gas causing climate change.

Wait, what? It’s mostly methane, but then CO2? Huh?

The association calls the new zoning codes for new construction burdensome to consumers and to the economy. They also say it’s more expensive to run an all-electric home. A study by AGA released last year suggested that all-electric homes would pay $750 to $910 a year more for energy-related costs, as well as amortized appliance and upgrade costs.

Of course it is. Warmists do not care. They’ll care when it is their own money, thought.

    TEACH puts his ECU chemistry to use: Wait, what? It’s mostly methane, but then CO2? Huh?

    2CH4 + 3O2 –> 2CO2 + 4H2O

    When you burn (oxidize) methane you create CO2 and water. Every molecule of methane yields one molecule of CO2.

    Burning fossil fuels converts simple and complex hydrocarbons (e.g., methane(C1), propane(C3), butane(C4), octane(C8), etc) into CO2, water and sometimes other stuff depending on the source.

    Burning a gallon of gasoline releases about 19 pounds of CO2.

    • Jon Pananas says:

      Most gasoline sold in US is 10% ethanol. Combusting a gallon of E10 produces about 17.5 lbs of CO2. Just saying.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Burning a gallon of E10 produces about 17.6 pounds of CO2 that is emitted from the fossil fuel content. If the CO2 emissions from ethanol combustion are included, then about 18.9 pounds of CO2 are produced when a gallon of E10 is combusted.

        Remember, ethanol also burns.

        H3C-CH2OH + O2 –> yields 2CO2 molecules per molecule of EtOH

        Just saying.

    All-electric?

    But the warmists hate new power lines and functioning power plants, like hydro and nuclear. Prepare for more blackouts, California!

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    It’s all beginning to make sense.

    The far-right really believes there to be a global conspiracy of scientists, corporate elites, organized religions, universities, Democrats, Communists, Deep Staters, most foreign governments, medical community, insurers, CIA, FBI, IRS, the Fed, the Clintons, George Soros, the Obamas that run a massive pedophile ring, massive vote rigging, false flag mass “murders”, faked climate data, forced abortion, mind control Hollywood propaganda, the Media — all to form a global, authoritarian government.

    All that stands between freedom and global enslavement is Donald Trump and his supporters. Only Trump and an internal band of loyalists and an increasingly “awakened” populace know of the deep entanglements.

    • Doom and Gloom says:

      Saul Alinsky Ridicule does not alter the truth. We understand the left covets huge government running every aspect of their lives and so any attempt to limit the 3 letter agencies or government is seen as a conspiracy by the authoritarian left.

      There is no other word to describe the left which covets the government running their lives.

      Yes Globalism is the removal of barriers. NOW WHO WOULD WANT TO DO THAT? It is simple. The billionaires who stand to make huge PROFITS FROM LESS REGULATION. Why has everyone fought Trump tooth and nail? Because through his regulations he has reduced barriers.

      Reducing a nation’s own regulations/barriers if far different than reducing the world’s regulations/barriers.

      So yes you are correct. There is a worldwide cabal in action. If there was not there would NOT be a worldwide uprising around the globe to throw off the shackles of the AUTHORITARIAN LEFTIST governments in an effort to reclaim the boundaries of their own borders being stripped from them by CORPORATIONS and BILLIONAIRES and 3 letter agencies which can work much easier in other countries when there are vastly limited barriers to prevent them from doing so.

      HAS IT NOT BOTHERED YOU THAT THE FBI IS CONSTANTLY BEING SENT TO FOREIGN COUNTRIES TO INVESTIGATE STUFF????? That is NOT their JOB nor in their charter and yet it has become commonplace.

      Does it not bother you that the shooting in Las Vegas has been shut down and ignored with the CIA OR other foreign 3 letter fingerprints all over it?

      Of course, it doesn’t because you LOVE to be told what to do. You want the thumb of government on your political adversaries and that’s where the left and right differ. We do not!! We covet Freedom! We want the poor to thrive not be put on a democratic plantation and their hope turned to hopelessness.

      The reason I know you are an Establishment type and not a progressive Elwood is because the progressives would disagree with your above statement as much as conservatives do. So go to a progressive website and you can have a hayday defending Biden and HRC and the DNC against progressives who hate all 3.

        Unlike conservatives who want to control what happens inside a woman’s body?
        Or want to stop people from smoking pot ? Or want to stop same sex marriages ?

        • Kye says:

          Then John, we assume you’re for killing babies, encouraging kids to fuk up their minds with drugs and promote buggery as “healthy” for a society? Wow, that’s really, really STUPID!

          John;

          Conservatives don’t want to control what happens inside a woman’s body, (her body, her choice). We just don’t want to pay for things we find abhorrent, (her body, my money? NO!). Roe v Wade isn’t going away. Taxpayer funding of it may, but I’m sure if you haven’t taxed them all away that some billionaire could fund this.
          Some conservatives don’t like people smoking pot, but it is a small number compared to the vast number of leftists determined to have the government impose its choices on me as to what I can eat, drink or how I heat or cool my house etc. You must love controlling “other people”.
          Same-sex marriage all you want. Just remember, you guys said that, “no one would be forced to participate in a gay marriage”, and before the ink was dry on the court ruling, Christian bakers were sued for, “not participating in a gay marriage”. You’ll note how Jewish or Mulsim bakers haven’t been sued. No one with more than 1 brain cell knows it’s about crushing Christianity and the family.

        • Doom and Gloom says:

          John. Go do not vape. Its turning out to not be very good for people. Don’t smoke cigarettes. I hear it causes cancer. the left was adamant to oppose smoking and yet, smoking dope is no better for you than smoking cigarettes.

          We only want whats best for you John because we know you have a limited understanding of the world around you we wish to protect you from making those mistakes of vaping and smoking dope.

          As for Abortion. John You have my permission to get all the Abortions you want. Perhaps you can print up some coupons and pass them out in the poor part of town where they are shooting each other up nightly in running gun battles in your BASTIONS of plantations you covet for those you PRETEND to care about.

          Give my regards to Putin. or is it someone from China handling you?

  4. Professor Hale says:

    Cost to run all electric homes and gas-electric homes fluctuate based on the prices of energy from year to year.

  5. John says:

    What about coal ? Have you considered installing a coal stove for heating ?
