More on the environmental group’s plot against your natural gas stove in an exclusive Washington Times article here. The Rockefeller Brothers Fund hosted a meeting between them and dozens of high-ranking state officials at the Rockefeller mansion in Pocantico, New York. (added 1/27/2023)
Robert Bryce has investigated a new far left NGO called the Climate Imperative Foundation and found when combined with the other large anti-fossil-fuel NGOs they have three times the money the top pro-fossil-fuel organizations have. His full post can be found here.
From his post:
Banning natural gas stoves, furnaces, hot water heaters, etc. will cause more CO2 emissions. Natural gas is twice as efficient as electricity in the home.
Climate Imperative makes it clear that electrifying everything is their goal.
Most of the money is coming from Steve Jobs widow, Laurene Jobs, and John Doerr.
The BS about asthma and natural gas is mostly from the Atlantic magazine (owned by Laurene Jobs) and the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI), founded by Amory Lovins, a renewable energy promoter.
Natural gas has no relationship to asthma, per a large multinational study published in the prestigious medical journal Lancet. In children the study:
“… detected no evidence of an association between the use of gas as a cooking fuel and either asthma symptoms or asthma diagnosis.”Wong, Brunekreef, et al., 2013
RMI has since wisely walked back its claims about asthma and natural gas. It seems the Biden administration missed these key points.
Numerous polls around the world have shown that fighting supposed man-made climate change is a very low priority for the public. The United Nations My World poll of 10 million people found that fighting climate change ranked dead last of 16 issues.
Other problems are always considered more important and urgent. In a 2018 Pew Research poll climate change ranked 18th, of 19 issues in importance, just ahead of dealing with global trade. In a similar Gallup 2014 poll, climate change ranked 14th in a list of priorities. A 2022 poll by the Pew Research Center also found climate change ranked 14th. All this “dangerous man-made climate change” nonsense is driven by ignorant billionaires and wacky environmentalists.
