It was only November when 13 cities and one county in California enacted new zoning codes encouraging or requiring new construction to be all-electric, meaning there would be no more running natural gas lines to new dwellings. Why? Because of climate change. Natural gas is a fossil fuel after all, but electric stoves are powered by electricity — which is generated by burning coal.

We’re not certain how serious Matt Bruenig is being here, but he’s got a Patreon account going and seems to insist that gas stoves have got to go.

Seriously?

How about no.

We think it’s a serious account that’s trying to be clever and not quite making it.

That’s the idea.
