EPA Makes Wood-Burning Stoves Unaffordable to Save the Planet

The EPA has finalized a 344-page rule to make wood stoves more environmentally friendly, meaning that millions of Americans will soon be forced to buy more expensive wood-fired stoves.

Republican lawmakers have opposed the rule, saying it would harm millions in rural America that rely on wood stoves to heat their homes every winter. With natural gas and electricity prices on the rise, wood stoves can be an economical choice for many living in the countryside.

“The EPA’s shortsighted regulatory overreach is once again hitting hardworking Montanans in their pocketbooks,” said Montana Republican Sen. Steve Daines.

  1. Control......no matter how you dress it up, what moniker is used, what 'excuse' proffered....it's about CONTROL. Control is just a synonym for rule....and that
    is what those who have seized power seek to do...to RULE OVER US.

  2. Looks like a black market is opening up on wood burning stoves. They started makings these back in Ben franklins days.

  3. No matter what rules they make laws they pass. They rule by our permission. If they become to much we must work around over or through them. At the very least just ignore them. But first everyone must wake up and stop ignoring the gorilla in the room of what's become our country.
