    No, not everything. We are smarter than that and can target certain things. And the things which are subsidized by those collected funds will be cheaper. You really should think these things through a little more.

    You do know that a carbon tax will increase energy costs ? Which will cause an increase in transportation, food, and so on. Who the fuck will pay for these subsidies ?

    It's all about subterranean geothermal activity and there's nothing we can do about it. You climate alarmists and impeachment conspiracists really need to chill out. You have too much tension resulting from phobias, bigotry and misinformation. Maybe you should enroll in meditation classes or take up a strenuous hobby. Go on a diet. You need to do something to stop this collective downward spiral you're on.

    BAN ALL THE THINGS! No more fire in the kitchen: Cities are banning natural gas in homes to save the planet.

    They aren't looking to take out old stoves, they are just saying that they want all new construction to be all electric rather than running gas lines to newly built houses. No, they aren't banning all stoves.

    From your link.........................

    The codes, most of them passed since June, are meant to keep builders from running natural gas lines to new homes and apartments, with an eye toward creating fewer legacy gas hookups as the nation shifts to carbon-neutral energy sources.

    For proponents, it's a change that must be made to fight climate change. For natural gas companies, it's a threat to their existence. And for some cooks who love to prepare food with flame, it's an unthinkable loss.

    That's what I just said. And, to tell you the truth, I really don't have much of a problem with it. Why? Makes it easier on the cities infrastructure if they don't have to keep laying new gas lines.

    I think Americans can make up their own minds whether they want electric or gas stoves. Don't you think our politicians should be working figuring out what do with the homeless in their cities rather than dictating gas or electric stoves?
