The California Air Resources Board (CARB) voted unanimously last week to pass a plan to ban natural gas heaters and furnaces by 2030. It’s a first for a state, which seems to be the most important thing for liberals.
They said they want to meet federal ozone standards.
CARB will have “meaningful engagement” with residents on heaters and furnaces.
“Beginning in 2030, 100 percent of sales of new natural gas space heaters and water heaters would need to comply with the emission standard,” CARB says.
“This measure won’t mandate retrofits in existing buildings, but some buildings would require retrofits to be able to use the new technology that this measure would require. Beginning in 2030, 100 percent of new space and water heaters (for either new construction or replacement of burned-out equipment in existing buildings) sold in California would need to meet the zero-emission standard. It is expected that this regulation would rely heavily on heat pump technologies currently being sold to electrify new and existing homes.”
Claiming electric heaters emit “zero emissions” does not consider how electricity is generated. Renewable energy sources account for about one-third of California’s power supply; natural gas accounts for 40%.
“California’s Public Utilities Commission also eliminated subsidies for new natural gas hookups last week, marking the first state to do so.”
They boast that natural gas heaters and furnaces will lower emissions to reduce utility bills, but it seems they plan to do it by depriving people of power. They haven’t explained how they will heat homes and provide cooking fuel as they struggle to provide electricity to residents during periods of high demand.
Hilariously, what makes them think they’ll live that long? LOLOL
Since there is no way we can build nuclear power plants fast enough to produce enough energy for the Wacko Liberal Zero Emissions agenda, the goal must be extermination of 90% of America or in the case of California run 90% of the people living in the State out of there.
Where in the Constitution was Government at any level giving this kind of power? The Government never had this Power. We are going to have to take this kind of power from them. Actually, Californians are going to have to take this power away from the Democrats. This stupidity will even impact the lives of the Rich Movie Stars and we can’t have that.
Less than 1% of people living in a city will have the real estate needed to comply with these kinds of Standards. It would require the complete redesigns of Homes and a return to the living standards of 1900. Do these people also want to see a return to a horse and buggy? But then, The New World Order says you own nothing and be happy so instead of 0.5% of California being homeless, The California Air Resources Board goal is to have o.5% of the people in homes and the 99.5% homeless.
Will Newsome be the next president? Will he be better or worse than Biden?
Take you pick! Exchange one crazy old man, or a more dangerous younger version of crazy.
Sure hope that windmill generator runs all night, because the sun sure don’t!
And don’t think you can use your fire place either, wood fires produce pollutants.
“…coal and wood yield very similar results in terms of the CO2 produced (in terms of kilograms of CO2 per unit of potential energy.”

Wood is much less energy dense than coal, so you have to burn a lot more of it to produce the same amount of electricity. As a result, burning wood produces higher emissions than coal (about 40 percent higher) for every unit of energy you generate. https://www.ecowatch.com/burning-trees-for-electricity-is-actually-dirtier-than-coal-1882012730.html Accessed 28/09/2022 08:36 (AST) 27/09/2022 22:36 (GMT) Accessed 28/09/2022 08:36 (AST) 27/09/2022 22:36 (GMT)
Think of creosote and chimney fires.
Now that Newsome and company have turned the Golden State from paradise, to a pathetic mess, it would be only natural for the left to make him president. Start printing the ballots now for the “stuffers.”
