Somebody in the current administration brings this piece of idiocy and the propaganda multiplicators appear to defend it.
He is the founder of People’s Policy Project, a think tank which apparently does not think much.
You do have to love Limo Liberals who have no idea what happens outside their little pampered world. You see, electric stoves run on not only on 220 volts but require that such 220 volts be delivered by a well built and stable electric grid. That is not a cheap investment. Are there electric stoves that run on 120 volts? Yes, but they impose a drain on the usual electric wiring in the house and it becomes expensive. Did I mention I am not talking about the US but in many other parts of the world?
I grew up in a household that cooked with gas. Why? First because there was no other option and then because when the electric company could finally deliver a stable source of 220, it was brutally expensive and simply not worthy. And this is the way for many countries in the world who wanted a way to cook meals without using wood stoves. There are not “chef” stoves costing thousands of dollars but basic sheet metal units with simple burners on top.
And the gas comes in bottles that are delivered by truck or you have to go to certain locations to trade old spent bottles for filled ones.
In Caracas, there were some ritzy areas where gas (LNG) was delivered via pipes and directly to your kitchen, but they were oh-so-very few and exclusive. The rest of us had to deal with the tanks and hoping we did not miss the day the truck went by to replenish a spent cylinder (Which is the reason we had two of 43 Kg AKA the big ones). I never cooked in an electric stove till I moved to the USA and truth be told, I never liked it. I still prefer gas and I do hate the new generation of glass top stoves with seething fury.
So, to finalize the rant, Mr. Bruenig is an elite Liberal racist who ignores the realties of the world he believes he wants to fix.
Because somehow, I do not see a solar-powered electric stove being in the cards anytime soon, nor seeing him cook in one.
PS: Does he go to restaurants? He has to, he does not look like a guy who can boil water without creating a minor incident. Does he demand his meals to be cooked in an electrical stove powered by Green Energy or he is hypocritical “unaware” on how they are cooked?

All these NPC’s never even heard the word ‘induction’ before .gov told them to support it.
Another “climate change” bullshiite story to make useful idiots think liberals are doing something to “save the planet “.. excuse me, I will be on my back deck empting 3-4 cans of hairspray into the air…
I grew up with electric stoves because gas wasn’t available where I lived. I have gas now in my house. Way superior to electric.
I grew up with gas, but the wife loved electric. Now she’s gone and I’m stuck with that Pile of Shit.
Grew up with electric, had a gas stove in college, had a gas stove when I got my own house. When we bought this new place, utility gas had just become available out here, so we paid to have the lawn torn up and gas plumbing run all the way up here and various places around the house (cooktop and fireplace using it so far).
Gas is way better than old-style electric, and incomparably better than smoothtop electric.
Induction is more or less competitive with gas, aside from needing compatible pots & pans and only working when there’s plenty of electricity available.
Typical gas burners do have large losses around the sides of typical pots, but I don’t know how those compare to electrical generation and transmission inefficiencies.
I think we need to replace the aging electric water heaters with gas units while we still can, and free up those circuits for other purposes.
I want this individual to explain what is “foodie” about cooking on gas? And, unless you are wasting your money on a Viking or Wolf cooktop, there is nothing “elite” about gas cooktops.
But, Rule #5 is something leftists are addicted to. Ridicule is a man’s most potent weapon.
In Europe ovens use 230V with 3 phases, 1 neutral and 1 ground. Given that every phase can dish out 16A that’s way more power than a normal US-oven has (which, afaik, operate with 20A in 110V or 220V). I guess that’s a reason why people on your side of the pond dislike electrical stoves so much.
Nevertheless: The reason they want to ban gas stoves is pure bullshit and political social engineering.
50amp 240 is what electric stoves use in the states.
Ok, I checked and I just found 20A. Then you guys use some hefty gauge wiring for your ovens.
You get 3 phase at home? I had to use a phase converter last time I had something that ran on 3 phase power!
Apartments only have 3 phase for the stove (some exceptions). A single family home normally has one 3 phase outlet for some machinery – I have several at my disposal 😀
That’s why I can install a lathe tomorrow without any changes to my electrical grid 😛
