Biden’s Energy Secretary Casually Reveals That She Wants To Control Our Decisions

Biden’s Energy Secretary Casually Reveals That She Wants To Control Our Decisions


Excerpt: Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm gave congressional testimony over her department’s effort to finalize regulations limiting the use of gas stoves.

Granholm first denied there was any effort to ban the appliances — a dissembling prevarication at best — and then admitted — you guessed it — she uses a gas stove in her own home.

“There is no ban on gas stoves. I have a gas stove,” Granholm said. “It is just about making the existing electric and gas stoves and all the other appliances more efficient. It is a proposed rule, so the full range of gas stoves, absolutely, is not affected.”

“In fact, half the gas stoves that are on the market right now wouldn’t even be impacted,” Granholm added, explaining the stoves that would be impacted are “high-end” appliances that, she said, constitute a “wasteful use of natural gas.”

That’s right: DOE’s own analysis admits its regulation would ban the use of at least half of all gas stoves on the market today. At the same time, the bureaucrats at the Consumer Products Safety Board are working on banning the other half.

But we can all rest absolutely assured that any final regulations issued by this administration will contain carve-outs designed to ensure that Granholm and every other wealthy elite in the U.S. will be able to go right on cooking with gas.

Because that’s what happens when the worst possible class of people are the ones making all the energy decisions for us.
