Has anyone seen this? Just call me Crazy, but what the He!!! does the EPA have their noses in this for?
The EPA is also set to ban production and sale of 80% of current wood-burning stoves. Who knows what aroused its ire against these innocuous devices? But this will impose a real hardship on people who live in remote areas, such as much of Alaska. The EPA has arbitrarily decided that stoves cannot emit more than 12 micrograms of fine particulate emissions per cubic meter of air. To put that silly limit in perspective, Bell notes that “secondhand tobacco smoke in a closed car can expose a person to 3,000–4,000 micrograms” per cubic meter."
