Earth’s Climate Is Not Controlled by Your Gas Stove! by The Elephant's Child

The Panic People are still out there, sure that the climate of the Earth is changing, and we are somehow at fault! Not true. The climate of the Earth is controlled by the action of our sun, and the sun is just fine. We have some rainy days and cloudy days, but the sun is still up there behind the clouds creating daylight, even when it’s raining. If everyone in your city, in every apartment and house or even shed had a gas stove, it would have no effect on the climate whatsoever. That’s not how it works.

Hie yourself off to your nearest public library, ask the librarian for help (that’s why they are there) and see what you can find out about our sun and the climate and why weather happens. We can do a lot about the weather. That’s why we have umbrellas and raincoats and awnings along the street. If every single person in your city had a gas stove, it would not have the slightest effect on the climate. Depends on where you live. If natural gas is readily available, many people will have gas stoves and gas fueled indoor heating. If not, you will probably run your appliances on electricity. Right now it’s somewhat rainy in Seattle, a little chilly outdoors, and people are staying in, and probably having a fire in the fireplace for cheer and comfort. Which, of course, makes it a little smoky out. No idea where this sudden panic about natural gas appliances came from. Some people like them, some people don’t.

Growing up in Idaho, on a hot springs resort, we depended on wood fires in the fireplaces for heat and in kitchen stoves for cooking.We had plenty of timber on our own land. We had our own power house with a dam to back up enough water to run our own power house generators until Idaho Power finally built into our locale. We had about 3 miles of river, aside from the springs which were our main source of power. With plenty of natural hot water, Idaho Power was welcome, but not really necessary at all. Saved us from a lot of chopping and splitting and filling woodboxes.
