Explainer 57 - Natural Gas Bans, Appliance Efficiency Standards, and Consumer Choice RTP's Fourth Branch Podcast

    • Politics

The debate over the electrification agenda and its implications for consumer choice and the environment remains contentious. As federal agencies like the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and The Department of Energy look to regulate natural gas home appliances, many consumers have questions: where does the federal government draw authority to regulate climate? What potential health risks and price impacts loom over natural gas and electric appliances? Should consumers have the choice between natural gas appliances and electric appliances, or should new electric appliances be mandated and subsidized? In this episode, Ben Lieberman and Professor James Coleman discuss these questions and more.

Featuring:
- Ben Lieberman, Senior Fellow, Competitive Enterprise Institute
- Host: James W. Coleman, Professor of Law, Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law
