Fossil fuels: San Francisco to end natural gas heating 2027, 2029, 2031

No more gas water heaters in single-family homes in 2027, furnaces in 2029, and multifamily and commercial water heaters in 2031. Cooking with gas to be allowed.


As reported in many places previously, indoor air quality suffers with health issues for children and adults when natural gas is used for cooking.

So I’ve read. All I can say is that I grew up in a house with gas cooking and we all did fine.

Of course I now have asthma, but then I also smoked for 30 years, so that was stupid. (We also have a gas stove - and gas fireplace - in this house, and love it.) I suppose induction stoves will be the hot new thing, supposedly they’re faster and more efficient, which was my complaint about our electric stoves in several of our past residences.
