We are in need of EPA standards.
Let me get this straight.....the federal gov't is now trying to tell us we
can't burn wood in our fireplaces?Yeah, I'm sure that this
is the kind of government our Founding Fathers envisioned when they founded our
country.Not.Pardon me while I go bring in some more wood
Here we go again. Big Brother just can't the thought of not being in
absolute control of every aspect of everyone's life.
There is nothing like the smell of pine smoke in the winter and in the spring
we have the fresh smell of pollen, dirt dust plowed through the till the end of
fall who doesn't like to fill their lungs up first thing in the morning
after a rain storm. There is a lot to be said for natural smells.
"EPA would give manufacturers five years to meet standards that would reduce
emissions by an estimated 80 percent."The EPA's Energy Star
designation of electrical appliances has pushed the efficiency of appliances
sold in America, and I've read studies that these laws have not only saved
Americans billions in energy savings, but have also improved the overall
performance of appliances while reducing emissions.Five years for
stove manufacturers to improve the efficiency for wood burning stoves isn't
unreasonable. Sounds like this is an industry warranting improved quality and
innovation. We in Utah experience first hand the air quality impacts of local
Ir would be nice if the Fed Govt. would clean its own house first and stop
burning our forests every summer.
