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."

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?

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 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.
