Is the City of Los Angeles is going to take our gas cooktops and ovens away?
Not so fast.
Yes, the Los Angeles City Council voted to ban most gas appliances in new construction. And when finally adopted, the motion would require new buildings to not add to the carbon dioxide pollution harming the planet – that is, be emissions-free. However, don’t be alarmed by misleading headlines. Korean barbecue restaurants will not be forced to switch to electric equipment and residents will not have to change all their appliances.
