Do you want to get shot? 'cause that's a damn good way to get yourself shot.

Well that's dumb.

For heating applications, it's much better to burn the fuel at point of use, then use it to make electricity first and incur Carnot cycle losses and transmission losses.  Of course, that assumes that we are still burning things for electric power, and haven't done the sane, rational thing and use atomic energy... Something Matt probably also disagrees with.

Also, who is Matt Bruenig and why should I concern myself with what he thinks?  Sounds like a community organizer sort, lots of talk, no action.

"whether they want to or not"

That tells it all with respect to left wing attitudes:  "Comes the revolution, you will do as you're damned well told."

Some good stuff in the responses.  Hadn't heard this one before:

"That lock on my door is for your protection, not mine.

Looking at his twitter posts, he looks like an internet troll trying to stir things up.  He might be a leftist, but I couldn't be sure.

Everyone gets a free electrical panel upgrade? Doubt everyone has the power capacity for electric stove, electric dryer, electric furnace, electric water heater, and AC.

Living out in the sticks, I hope I get a free whole house gen with the deal.
The reason I have a propane oven and range and boiler and water heater is because they work when the electrical power is out and itĺs -15 degrees with 3ĺ snow drifts in the road.

I always figured electric stoves were pretty wasteful, what with warmup times and cooldown times just dissipating energy uselessly, let alone the possibility of kicking  your billing into high demand rates.

(I'd love to see more atomic energy generated, too.  What are we, at 20% now?)

When the right people are in charge you wont need heat or AC.

I seriously doubt the California power companies have the capacity to handle everyone switching to all electric. Heck, the power companies have been paying people NOT to use electricity for years. Maybe this clown thinks everyone has a solar roof already?

 This. I have cooked a lot of food with no electrical power.

I actually had to burn my pellet stove yesterday. It was damned cold in the house.

That.  Though the last time it was relevant was Ike several years ago.  Power was out and I still had hot water and could fire up the burners on the stove.  This with natural gas though.  Using electricity for that would be more expensive.

I wonder what he would think  about my wood stove? Speaking of which I may build a fire here today.

I will not turn in my gas stove.  My wife would kill me if I did.
I will certainly turn on my gas stove to cook all kinds of tasty animals.

And guess that's burning in my living room right now?

If you said the TV, no, but good guess.

Hopefully this is the last I have to burn the stove until late this year.

This article popped up in my news feed this morning, and it is relevant to the discussion. It makes me think about having the vent fan run every single time we are using the stove.

Thanks for that motivation.
We replaced our 23 year old Jenn Aire with downdraft vent last fall with a new propane Samsung and lost the downdraft in the process. I plan to vent up using the also new Samsung microwave over range unit but didnĺt want to open up the wall and vent out in the cold weather. It is on an outside wall but will vent up high onto our covered porch. I think living on Covid time and better weather I could fold that into the covid project list since illanoy will be one of the last states to reopen.

If I could have justified the money when I had to replace my stove back in 2016 I would have gone with an induction cooktop model. But, the cheapest induction range I could find was over $3,000.

Gas is still better. I have gas at the house and induction in the cabin.

The oven I could care less as long as it will maintain a consistent temperature.
98% of my stove top cooking is with cast iron. I will not use a cast iron skillet on electric or induction. That's my line in the sand, that's my hill.

They can have my Bluestar 48" Platinum range when they pry it from my cold, dead fingers.  Spent as much on it as the (used) minivan.

I prefer gas, but an electric range came with the house, I have no problems using cast iron and an electric range. When it poops the bed, I will replace it with a gas range and oven. Also need to pipe gas to the kitchen too. Easily done, have a 1" gas line into the house that runs the length of the basement since I have a gas clothes dryer on the far side of the basement from the meter.
