Last Friday MDN told you about an initiative in Arizona and five other states to block the right of local municipalities from banning natural gas appliances and natural gas heat from homes and businesses (see Several States Float Laws to Ban Municipal NatGas Bans). As we pointed out, Berkeley, California was the first to enact such a ban (there’s a reason it’s nicknamed Berserkley). Now Takoma Park, Maryland, on the other coast, wants to go *even further* than Berkeley’s ban. Takoma appropriately calls itself the Berserkely of the East. Takoma officials have floated a plan that will ban “all gas appliances, close fossil fuel pipelines, and move gasoline stations that do not convert to electric charging stations outside city limits by 2045.” Wow! Talk about wackadoodle!
