State governments and the Biden Administration appear to be putting their finger on the scale in favor of using more electricity and less fossil fuels. Last week, New York was the latest state to make a move; in this case to curtail the use of gas stoves. Despite problems with their electric grid in recent years, the LA Times Editorial Board actually is upset New York beat them to the gas stove legislation.
The LA Times story and a cut from a CNN interview are here. The CNN interview assumes all fossil fuels create more to global warming than electricity regardless of the fossil fuels with larger carbon footprints that are used in creation of the electricity.
An Editorial found here discusses how the New York action is nothing but a green bait and switch.
