EPA bans wood-burning stoves; fireplaces could be next

Here’s the latest frightening example of government intrusion into our lives and homes–in this case, our kitchens. As of January 3, the EPA has banned 80% of wood-burning stoves, which are used in 12% of US homes.

From the article:

As of January 3rd, the EPA banned about 80% of the wood-burning stoves and fireplace inserts in the United States. Stoves which are used to heat 12% of the homes in America and are especially needed in outlying rural areas. Fireplaces are also being looked at.

The EPA is attempting to reduce particle pollution with new rules. Instead of limiting fine airborne particulate emissions to 15 micrograms per cubic meter (μg/m3) of air, the change will impose a maximum 12 μg/m3 limit. That is equivalent to a person smoking 3 to 4 cigarettes in a small confined space.

Luckily, a group of Senate Republicans is investigating this lunacy. While they’re at it, can the EPA ban private jets for politicians and “eco-friendly” celebrities?
