    I’ve worked in a lot of restaurants, all gas ranges. The airborne grease particles are probably even worse than the gas pollutants, that is another health warning I would have liked 20 years ago. Also, as much as I think we do need to cut back on the gas stoves, it’s the only way I get hot food in winter when the power goes out.

    Inductions are safer too because they themselves don’t get hot. They only heat the pan which transmits some heat back to the induction plate.

    With a gas stove it’s more reliable when the power goes out because you can use a match to light it. what are we supposed to do in the case of a power outage? Have no stove to keep warm or cook?

    While she’s correct about the emissions from a stove, she conflates gas stove use with ALL gas use in a home to get her 10% of all emissions number. This is disingenuous. I’m an environmentalist and a progressive, but we lose our arguments when we keep using bad arguments.

Natural gas and oil are definitely not the same, but I would definitely like to hear more about the pollutants from gas stoves

    They’re really just going to have to require new buildings to be made with electric stoves bc gas stoves rock and we’re not gonna stop wanting them. But we’ll learn to live without them bc the vast majority of people don’t choose a house simply based on a stove, and the vast majority of people aren’t willing to replace a perfectly operation range

    “burning gas in our homes is contributing about 10% to our carbon emissions”, to clarify, that is only when you include gas clothes dryers, gas water-heaters, gas furnaces and gas cooking together. Of those, cooking is the LEAST by a large margin. As far as the poisons created from natural gas, all you need is to have your hardware in good working order. If the gas-fuel mix is neutral, then CO and PM2.5 (particulate matter) production from the gas flame alone is nearly non-existent. (Most Particulate Matter created from cooking is the result of heating food regardless of the heat source. When a recipe says to heat your oil until you start to see smoke? That’s your poisonous particulate matter, and yes, it is dangerous. Invest in a good exhaust fan!) Yes, there is the production of NO2, but all that is needed to resolve that is a proper exhaust ventilation system, and being careful to run it any time you run the stovetop. When pushed outdoors, NO2 is not a major concern.
    Induction stovetop cooking is perfectly fine, but it forces you to only use ferrous cookware. And oven-cooking with natural gas has benefits for a lot of cooking in that the combustion of natural gas creates water-vapor, which helps to prevent foods drying while cooking.
    Putting an end to natural gas cooking in the home is like putting an end to plastic shopping bags or plastic drinking straws. It’s not a horrible thing to do, but it is far from the long pole in the tent. Throwing out your old gas stove in exchange for electric is going to result in the creation of much more pollution via production then most people will end up saving. If you have gas, make sure it is properly tuned, and turn on the exhaust fan when using it. If you have electric, consider sticking with it, and maybe the few times you really benefit from flame cooking, consider doing it with a propane grill or a turkey-fryer outdoor burner.
    Oh and if these numbers frighten you, then you should never be touching charcoal or wood, and absolutely avoid both hot-smoking and cold-smoking. BBQ is cancer. But if you only eat it in moderation, it is an acceptable risk.

    Fireplaces have to go. Very few buildings need them. Fireplaces should be banned in new builds and we should incentivize people who have them not to use them.

    Fireplaces cause particulate pollution, contribute to greenhouse gas emissions, and harm human health. It better to not use one unless absolutely necessary.

    Can we get more info on this topic? So far seems far-fetched especially with comparison to tailpipe (!). Feels like if this was the case no amount of Big Gas money would cover up obvious health issues.

    Maybe they (Carbon free activists) felt that saying it’s bad for environment (which is obviously true) just isn’t enough. Saying it’s bad for your health brings more attention to the topic.

    Funny enough, majority of Russians owns gas stoves and view electric stoves as more of a safe option (meaning gas-explosions related dangers). Electric stoves are associated with living in a new apartment buildings at the very least. Modern choice if you will.

    It’s kinda ironic that gas stove in US sold along side with “white picket fence” as a desirable middle class thing.

    This is the electric car paradox all over again. All you’re doing is moving the burner farther away, and wasting power through parasitic loss. Sorry, it’s basic physics.

    Honourable mention: you can still use a gas stove, when the power goes out. Not so much with electricity.

    Also, induction stoves are nice, but you gotta get a couple hundred dollars worth of proper pots to use them.

    And brains – low levels of carbon monoxide do not set alarms off and may only give occasional headaches so it is difficult to identify what is wrong.

    In Brasil gas is much cheaper than electricity. In the last 5 years of increasing poverty many needed to abandon gas to use wood, Wich could be more dangerous as the burning is not as complete, so more carbon monoxide being liberated in the nearby air. It seems to electricity is cheaper than gas in America, Wich is a bit weird. Here we also have a lot of electrical showers Wich are an enormous waste of energy, and gas heated water is considered a more ecologically conscious decision. This seems to be a complicated topic since, to my knowledge, we do not use fracking, but we do import natural gas. It would be interesting to have someone run the numbers and, in a trustworthy manner, describe if gas is more or less eco friendly in wich region

    There’s a lot of nuance missing here. I get that we need to put pressure on companies to reduce gas emissions and such, and I get that this video is approaching the topic of gas vs induction/electric from a comedic standpoint, and talking about complex issues in comedy is incredibly difficult. That said, the solution of gas vs induction/electric stoves is incredibly simplified here, and wouldn’t work on its own for a few reasons.

    1. Induction stoves are incredibly expensive, and not everyone can afford to replace their gas stoves (particles those living in apartment complexes who might not be able to legally make home renovations),
    2. This doesn’t account for where the electricity is coming from, and we haven’t yet completely made the switch to renewable energy sources,
    3. Induction and electric stoves are harder to use than gas stoves.

    Really, the best thing we can do right now is pressure companies to switch to renewable energy, and to pressure congress into climate action.

    Largely affects for lower-income and vulnerable communities the most? In Canada, it seems like it’s mostly only higher-income neighbourhoods that have gas stoves. Rental units and houses in lower-income neighbourhoods tend to the use the old-fashioned electric coil burner stoves, (the ones that take forever to heat up and are really hard to clean) because those stoves tend to be cheaper.

    Few countries in the world support both electrical and gas distribution networks. It’s a very costly luxury. Also we had a gas stove originally, but the amount of waste heat that flowed around pans would make the kitchen unbearably hot. Then there was that gas leak. So we switched to electric and the kitchen stays much cooler and, of course, no chance of gas leaks. There’s a local chinese restaurant that uses induction with 50 tables and the room does not get hot; that really impressed me. I want to switch to a stove with 2 regular electric burners for our old pans and 2 induction burners, but so far we only find one that’s all one or the other.

    I really do HATE electric stoves and I prefer gas because gas will give you nearly instant temperature control, whereas an electric stove takes for freaking ever to change the temperature at which it is cooking your food. You want to know how to get people to switch, and by that I mean an awful lot of good cooks, is an electric stove that responds waaay faster than they do now. As for fumes — that is why your range hood and fan are there or install a bigger fan.

    Look, I get the environmental concerns, but trading noxious petroleum fumes for poisoning the earth herself with radioactive waste from nuclear electricity generating plants, is not tempting me at all.

    old fashioned gas stoves had vents for the oven and hoods. since the air is not real hot the vents do not need to be as well insulated as a wood stove. electric is only better if it is not gas generated electricity.

    the small electric appliances like microwaves and toaster ovens are cheaper and use less energy. I made a loaf of bread in a bread machine last night, cooked my rice in a rice cooker, and right now i am using an electric rotisserie to cook pork ribs that will be like barbecue. I bought these things at a thrift shop for under $10 each, and the rotisserie is outside my back door on an old washing machine making its smell and smoke outside. the dog will lick the grease tray clean and eat the rib bones.

I’ve always wondered why gas stoves are used in movies. I always thought it was just a plot piece that makes it convenient for explosions or death by asphyxiation somewhere in the storyline. But I also remember that when we lived in the US all the apartments we stayed in had gas stoves. Yet in South Africa, a developing country, electric stoves are standard. That’s crazy.

    “Gaslighting” is an appropriate label for this segment. No, natural gas is not gasoline, and you don’t get the “same pollutants” from burning it. You may have noticed your stove doesn’t have a catalytic converter, because it doesn’t need one.

    Further, burning fossil fuels to make electricity and then using electricity make heat is inefficient and inherently more polluting than just burning them to make heat directly. The _best_ you can usually hope for is that most of your electricity comes from burning natural gas. Coal’s all too common.

    Nor is your stove your main consumer of natural gas. In most climates in the US, that’s your furnace, followed by your water heater.

    So, unless you live in California and all your electricity is coming from a rooftop solar panel, a gas stove is generally your least important environmental concern.

    The only thing stopping the world from using electric/solar/wind etc, is the car and gas lobbies influencing the politicians in order to keep coal/oil etc still being used. It’s just big money corruption making the world a worse place, which is not capitalism fault necessarily, but if you allow $$$ to buy opinions and laws, then its inevitable profits will out weigh health and environmental concerns for corporations. If they can make 10 billion, and then pay a 2million dollar fine for dumping toxic waste in a river, or they can spend 100million to dispose of it properly, to a “corporation” the only thing that matters is which is the more profitable option. Corporations/lobbyists/politicians, don’t necessarily act with conscience, it’s just whatever profits them personally most. Then individuals buy stock in these companies, and as long as their 401k is shooting up, they feel they aren’t the ones personally destroying the environment or peoples’ health, they don’t feel responsible for what the corporation does. Greed, it’s the start and end to a lot of problems. I understand if your starving or homeless, doing everything you have to in order to survive, but for all the people fairly well off who just want that extra car or bigger house or to retire early, when is enough. When are you rich enough to start worrying about the rest of the world and the people, most people seem to be lost in their own little bubble of me, me, me.

    I like gas stoves, but I do realize the downside science of burning gas is real. I currently have an electric stove (change of residence) but all electricity in my city is powered by coal-fired power plants. When I use my electric stove, I’m burning coal. When I turn on a light, I’m burning coal. When I watch TV, I’m burning coal. When I play my electric guitar, you get the point.

    In Germany there was a TV documentary clearly in favour of ICE cars (you might have heard that is a big industry here) where the journalist showed people living in a flat at a highly polluted street that the vast majority of the dangerous nitrogen oxide in their flat actually did not come from the street but from their gas stove. It didn’t go as planned, instead of being calmed to the dangerous tailpipe emissons since something else is worse the flat inhabitants freaked out live and vowed to replace the gas stove with electric cooking as soon as possible. 😀

    Natural gas is a byproduct of oil production. If they don’t use it, it gets burned pointlessly into the atmosphere to get rid of it. And where do you think a lot of that electricity to run your induction stove is coming from? Yep, natural gas plants. Electricity doesn’t appear out of nothing.

    I sure love having my gas stove when power is out for days at a time. Yep, we’ve got solar on the roof, but those panels required manufacture…which likely didn’t depend entirely on solar or wind energy. And the batteries we’re (still)waiting for so we don’t have to depend upon gas are also made through processes that depend upon far more than wind and solar. So think outside the electrical outlet when you promote electric over gas. Electricity comes from: coal, nuclear, wind, solar, dams and other sources that also have impacts.

    Gas lighting??? Did she say that our kitchen stoves contribute 10% to our carbon footprint? I don’t know about you, but it costs me about $50 a year to pay for the gas consumed by my gas stove. Maybe $100 tops. When I compare that to gas for my car or my overall electric consumption or gas for my furnace… it seems like a LOT less than 10% from my kitchen stove. Is she gas lighting me? Plus, doesn’t natural gas emit about 1/2 the co2 of a traditional coal fired power plant and that the use of natural gas has cut our overall carbon emmissions more than just about anything we do currently? And, even if she were right and our kitchen stove DID contribute 10% to our carbon footprint… doesn’t she get that electric stoves run on electricity which needs to be produced? And likely by a natural gas burning power plant. And that the amount of Co2 that is emmited will be on the same order of magnitude regardless if what your stove runs off of? If I were to guess, I’ll bet that 10% that she references is the total amount of natural gas a house consumes, which in cold climates like MN is MOSTLY your furnace to heat your house. That is pretty reasonable. But again even if you did that with electricity that power still needs to be generated someplace and that will still emit co2. Someday if it comes from solar and wind, then cool cool cool, but until then its mostly a wash. If you listen REALLY carefully, she actually says that 10% of our carbon footprint comes from burning natural gas in our buildings… and then goes on to talk exclusively about kitchen stoves. Technically true, but very misleading. Samantha, I’d have to give you a B- on this one.

    The same is true for stoves that use wood or coal (real old school). Heck, even electric stoves and microwave ovens all use electricity which is most often sourced from coal or natural gas generators. The solution is simple: Proper Ventilation. A hood taking it outside prevents those gasses from accumulating in your house. Heating your water has the same pros and cons.

    How many people are willing to forgo any form of heating or cooking until the grid is 100% renewable? Hands? I thought so.

Not that smoking is “good” but they want you to believe that smoking is the problem not gas. Like you said, we aren’t allowed to know about the gas issues.
