As a result of the significant damage attributed to the burning of natural gas, many jurisdictions have already banned, or are in the process of banning its use. Examples include Vancouver and the Province of Quebec  , New York City , Berkley, San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, and all new homes in the United Kingdom just to name a few .
Natural gas cook tops are banned in all new buildings in many Californian towns and cities because of the high concentration of nitrous oxide in the homes & .
Unfortunately, Ontario is expanding its gas network even though natural gas is a significant contributor to our GHG emissions. Green Development Standards that mandate Net Zero buildings will reduce the damage from natural gas.
