(CNSNews.com) – The Biden administration is continuing its push to reduce Americans’ reliance on fossil fuels, this time taking aim at gas stoves.
CPSC Commissioner Richard Trumka Jr. called gas stoves “a hidden hazard,” adding that “Any option is on the table. Products that can’t be made safe can be banned.”
Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) told Fox Business’ “Mornings with Maria Bartiromo” reacted to the report, saying Tuesday that creating a cleaner environment should be done through “American innovation, not because of taxes or over-regulations.”
“Republicans, myself, we want to lead this world cleaner, healthier and safer than we found it, and we are going in the right direction. Just a new report yesterday saying the ozone is becoming thicker. Why? Because we have taken particulate matter out of the atmosphere,” he said.
“In addition, our carbon footprint, 14% less today than a decade ago, and why? It’s not because of government rules and regulations. It’s because of American ingenuity,” the congressman said.
“Let’s talk about natural gas and producing electricity versus wind generation of electricity. Wind generation is seven times more expensive than gas generated electricity, than transporting electricity versus gas is 10 times more expensive,” Marshall said.
“So we sat there in Kansas. Fifty percent of our electricity is wind generated. We transport that electricity to St. Louis to Chicago, and then that energy is 70 times more expensive than it was. We need affordable energy. We need clean energy. We can do it all, but it’s going to happen because of American innovation, not because of taxes or over-regulations,” he said.
