I'm looking to replace my freestanding gas stove/oven right now, and my options seem to be $800 for coil electric and $3000 for induction.

I'm probably going to end up with the induction anyway but damn.

I want to switch to induction. And so first I wanted to see how it cooks. I bought a single induction hob, a DrinkPod 1300W, which worked passably well. About $60. So I decided to up the ante, and spend $120 on a double, a Nutrichef 1800W each, but it turned defective. Boiling water on the 140F setting, wtf? And turning itself off when it pleased, as well. So I returned that. Check the reviews, but also test out the unit you get, thoroughly while you can still return it. I also learned that they have cooling fans, which make a fair amount of noise, alas. The full on induction stove/ convection oven sounds great, but yeah, that price tag.

Discussion of climate, how it is changing, activism around that, the politics, and the energy systems change we need in order to stabilize things.

As a starting point, the burning of fossil fuels, and to a lesser extent deforestation and release of methane are responsible for the warming in recent decades: Graph of temperature as observed with significant warming, and simulated without added greenhouse gases and other anthropogentic changes, which shows no significant warming

How much each change to the atmosphere has warmed the world: IPCC AR6 Figure 2 - Thee bar charts: first chart: how much each gas has warmed the world.  About 1C of total warming.  Second chart:  about 1.5C of total warming from well-mixed greenhouse gases, offset by 0.4C of cooling from aerosols and negligible influence from changes to solar output, volcanoes, and internal variability.  Third chart: about 1.25C of warming from CO2, 0.5C from methane, and a bunch more in small quantities from other gases.  About 0.5C of cooling with large error bars from SO2.

Recommended actions to cut greenhouse gas emissions in the near future:

Anti-science, inactivism, and unsupported conspiracy theories are not ok here.
