​The evidence continues to grow that gas is not only a threat to climate but also to human health, exacerbating respiratory conditions such as asthma and heart disease. A ​new report ​from the Rocky Mountain Institute, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Mothers Out Front, and the Sierra Club cites evidence that gas stoves and other gas appliances can cause levels of Nitrogen Dioxide, a toxic gas, that exceed standards for outdoor pollution. Exhaust venting can help. See the Sierra Club ​video​ ‘Gas-Free Homes: a Win for our Climate, Health, and Safety.’
