Climate Scam Activist Want Furnaces Restricted

They need to mind their own f’ing business

Activists petition EPA to restrict the use of home and commercial furnaces by 2030

A coalition of 26 climate change, public health and environmental justice advocacy organizations formally petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Tuesday to regulate air pollution produced by residential and commercial heating appliances, a move that would require homeowners and businesses to swap out heating and hot water furnaces.

Noting that oil and gas-fueled boilers that provide heating and hot water in homes, offices, schools and hospitals produce between 9% and 10% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, and release nitrogen oxides, which can cause respiratory problems, the coalition called for the agency to issue rules mandating emissions-free residential and commercial home heating appliances by the end of the decade.

“To protect public health while achieving the added benefit of advancing the Biden administration’s carbon reduction goals, EPA must set zero-emission standards for such appliances by 2030,” the groups, which include the Sierra Club, U.S. PIRG, Environment America and Physicians for Social Responsibility, wrote.

What that would mean, in practice, is that the EPA would set a first-ever standard limiting the amount of nitrous oxides that residential and commercial heating systems can produce, on the grounds that emissions-free heating systems such as electric heat pumps are widely available.

So, yes, what they want is to restrict the use of natural gas boilers and furnaces, and natural gas, which would mean anyone who has one would have to replace it.

Critics of the proposal, however, argue that the difference in cost between electric heat pumps and fossil fuel furnaces could make it difficult for the EPA to justify enacting new restrictions.

“Promulgating regulation is about more than just zeroing out emissions, it also requires that the agencies are prudent in capturing a net-benefit to American households,” Philip Rossetti, resident senior fellow in the energy program at R Street, a conservative think tank, told Yahoo News. “A forced transition to alternative appliances will carry a cost which will disproportionately fall on poor and disadvantaged Americans.”

I just paid to replace my furnace, which is natural gas, with the AC system. Are the acticultists going to pony up with their own money to replace it? How about the gas fireplace? What they’ll try and do is make the cost of replacement units so expensive that you’ll have to replace it with electric ones, which will rise in cost because of that whole supply and demand thing. And make natural gas so expensive you’ll consider replacing with straight electricity. Because they’re cultist assholes.

    Poor pitiful Teach always under attack by BIG GOVERNMENT
    Teach what this means that when in 20 years yku must replace your furnace it must meet EPA standards. So, no need to worry about this. Instead worry about the gender neutral rest rooms at Target. Have you forgotten the danger that is putting kids in?

      Do you leftists actually READ anything? They want the change made by 2030. That’s 7years NOT 20. Why are you leftists always trying to tell other people how to live and what to do then acting like you’re so virtuous when you bully people?

      Do you have the numbers on how many minors have been sexually assaulted in “gender neutral” rest rooms? I’ve only heard of 2 but I figure that’s because the left wing news blacks out that type of info. But those two children were raped because people like you can’t get through your thick stupid skulls that men CANNOT BECOME WOMEN.

      You always come up with ideas that cost other people problems, money and pain. You are really evil monsters.

        CarolAnn-as you’ve seen by now, just take what Johnny says and almost every time the opposite is true…

          There is no proof that what Hairy says is false.

          If you had proof we’re sure you’d present it.

    They have been trying this in Vermont, with less than satisfactory results, at least for the homeowners. Most houses were built with gas/oil-fired heat. Heat exchangers work as cooling during Summer, but are definitely inadequate for heating in 10-20-below-zero winters. Even the so-called “Cold Climate” heat pumps require two units to keep a house comfortable, and switching over is expensive, even if you qualify for a State rebate. And the increasing electric rates only compound the expense. See “Vermont Daily” and “Ethan Allen Institute” websites for running commentary.

    If you think there IS such a thing as “emission-free” electricity but don’t like nuclear power…

    You probably vote Democrat, and make other serious mistakes on a daily basis.

    You’ll own nothing and be happy.
    You’ll go nowhere and be happy.
    You’ll starve and be happy.
    Now…. you’ll freeze and be happy.

    If you’re a moron and haven’t figured it out yet….

    Clown boy-if you could read, I said “almost every time”. But thanks for the laugh..

    Interestingly, it seems that about 1 in 6 households are behind in paying their electric bills [Bloomberg, 23Aug22], that’s some 20m homes. Electric prices have been going up and the morons want to take away more efficient heat sources. Not to mention replacing FF vehicles with EV’s.
    I’ve been researching the cost of electricity production and have found that it is rather difficult as how costs are reported depend on the objective of the writer. Makes comparing reliable sources with unreliable sources tedious.
    Good luck in winter.
