Stanford scientists find the climate and health impacts of natural gas stoves are greater than previously thought

|

A new study from Stanford shows that gas stoves have methane leakage rates much higher than previously thought – the impact from gas stoves in U.S. homes is the same as about 500,000 gasoline-powered cars, making gas cooking a significant contributor to global warming. In addition, gas stoves emit nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and formaldehyde, directly exposing people to risks of asthma and other respiratory issues.
