Most homes use natural gas in some fashion- usually for cooking food, heating water or keeping the house warm. Addressing climate change means we need to convert to (clean) electricity for these everyday activities. We discuss a new report from Environment America. It makes the case that there are good electrical options. Can you say ‘Heat pump’ or ‘Induction cooktop?’ They work well.
The reading list:
- Environment America Home page
- Electric Buildings-- our latest report
- WBUR on the Net Zero roadmap
- E360 on "electrify everything!"
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
Thanks for listening.
