It's not actually a ban on woodburning stoves..it's regulations on emissions........

"The Environmental Protection Agency is set to finalize a set of regulations in February that critics say will effectively ban production of 80 percent of the wood- and pellet-burning stoves in America."

Of course, it won't affect any currently installed stoves. Manufacturers have had a couple of years notice to develop new models and get rid of old stock. An unfortunate consequence of this is that small manufacturers may not have the resources to develop and test new models fast enough. Keeping the discussion on rocket stoves, maybe this will push some group to invest in a RMH testing protocol so they can be verified by the government and standards can be written, letting permitting happen in an orderly fashion. You can't blame local building departments too much for not going out on a limb with something they don't know about.
