The author of a 2013 study being touted by the methane gas industry and its allies during the recent uproar over the suggested possibility of gas stoves regulation says his research is being misused. “That’s not a good use of our study,” Dutch environmental epidemiology professor Bert Brunekreef told E&E News. CPSC Commissioner Richard Trumka Jr.’s comments, along with the publication of research finding 12.7% of childhood asthma cases in the U.S. “is attributable to gas stove use.” That research, ironically enough, was actually based on separate research Brunekreef also co-authored in 2013. “You can always find a study that doesn’t find an effect, but you have to look at the combined effect of all of the studies to reach a conclusion,” he said.
