This stinks of something but it's not mercaptan...

They are going to add all buildings to the list now. I feel like people are now going to have to call an Electrician to install their boiler.

    i thought they used mercaptan in propane and some other sulfur compound in natural gas.

    --looking it up. ethyl mercaptan is used in propane and methyl mercaptan is used in methane.

    Bigger coal, gas and oil fired power plants will be needed to provide your power.
    Can't use windmills as they're an eyesore and may kill the Purple Beaked Crony.
    Niagra Falls can only produce so much power. Maybe they'll stop the falls because of noise pollution and erosion.
    There's more to say, but not here.... o:)

    Keep in mind this was pushed by the utilities. I think this was mentioned, or maybe not, in one of the previous threads about this. I know it's been mentioned here before that Westchester (IIRC) was limited oil to gas conversions because of limited gas supply, so the gas supply network may be limited new gas and their push was to make this look like an environmental legislative move rather than supply.
