Colorado Green Energy Group Partners with China to Ban Gas Stoves

The green energy group behind banning gas stoves has partnered with China to implement economy-wide transformation away from oil and gas.

  • Rocky Mountain Institute, the group behind the calls to ban gas stoves, has partnered with the Chinese government to implement an “economy-wide transformation” into green energy.
  • The nonprofit organization, based in Colorado, is demanding “systemic change and economy-wide transformation” to address “climate change” and insists the world must take drastic measures.
  • In 2013, the institute joined China’s National Development and Reform Commission to produce a report that advised the communist nation to replace existing appliances with “clean energy technologies.”
  • When local provinces failed to meet the energy goals the group was suggesting, the country was forced into electricity rations, such as dangerous “dimmed traffic lights,” which cause traffic issues and “half-cooked rice in rice cookers.”
  • President Biden proposed phasing out natural gas in federal buildings, a move that would ban fossil-fuel equipment in new government buildings by 2030. 

“Transforming the global energy system to secure a clean, prosperous, zero-carbon future for all,” the Rocky Mountain Institute claims.

  • In September 2022, the green agenda coalition demanded the elimination of natural gas furnaces and appliances in homes nationwide, a move that would trigger replacement costs of $12,000 for homeowners.
  • The plan was being pushed by the Sierra Club and dozens of other “environmental” groups, who are demanding the Environmental Protection Agency ban the use of natural gas for home heating – everywhere in the country.
  • The group’s petition claimed that the federal agency absolutely has to regulate “deadly pollution” from the energy source.
  • Earlier last week, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced they would be considering a potential ban on natural gas stoves.
  • “This is a hidden hazard,” Richard Trumka Jr., an agency commissioner, said in an interview. “Any option is on the table. Products that can’t be made safe can be banned.”
  • A January 2022 study published by the American Chemical Society and cited by the Environmental Protection Agency and World Health Organization linked the levels of nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, and soot released by these stoves to respiratory illness, cardiovascular problems, and cancer.
  • The CPSC plans to allow public comments on the health concerns related to gas stoves later this winter, according to Trumka.
