Ocasio-Cortez says 'science' about gas stoves 'very concerning'

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) invoked "science" on Instagram to explain why she thinks people should "maybe" one day stop using gas stoves, or some such nonsense.

"There is very concerning science about some of the emissions from gas stoves," she said, "especially around the cognitive development of young children, asthma, cancer, et cetera."

She admitted that she uses a gas stove herself, but she "rents" and doesn't really have control over it. She also suggested turning on the exhaust fan so the emissions will dissipate.

She also said she doesn't think the government is going to take away people's gas stoves, at least until the "far future." So why worry about it now?

Her comments led Breitbart's John Nolte to question, tongue in cheek, whether gas stoves do indeed cause brain damage.

"I’m just going to say straight out that I don’t believe gas stoves harm anything except for the leftists who want us dependent on a centralized electric grid they control. They want us all living in Californistan with blackouts and brownouts and insanely expensive 'peak hours' because Gaia comes first or something," he said.
