Land of the free, wood-burning stoves banned.

The Environmental Protection Agency recently imposed restrictions on wood-burning stoves that will deal a blow to rural Americans who rely on wood to heat their homes.

Critics charge that the rule changes were enacted following pressure from environmental groups.

The EPA tightened restrictions in January on the level of fine airborne particulate emissions that wood-burning stoves can emit, from 15 micrograms per cubic meter to a maximum of 12 micrograms.

The EPA restrictions would ban the production and sale of the kinds of wood-burning stoves that compose 80 percent of those currently in use in the United States, Forbes reported.

"Although this is an ancient technology, it can provide a solution for high heating costs in many parts of the country," Laura Huggins, a research fellow for both the Hoover Institution and the Property and Environment Research Center, told Newsmax.

"With up to one-third of this country's energy consumption used for heating, policymakers would be wise to consider the benefits of wood as a heat source," Huggins said.

In the face of tightening economies and rising heating costs, more Americans have been turning to cheaper, archaic sources for heat, especially those in poorer areas.

The number of households heating with wood grew 34 percent from 2000 to 2010, with 2.4 million homes, or 2.1 percent of U.S. housing units, using wood as their primary heating source, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Nearly 10 million additional homes use wood to supplement their primary heat source, the U.S. Energy Information Administration disclosed.

Huggins said environmentalists should cheer the use of this energy source.

"Fuel for wood heating is a renewable resource, and under the right circumstances can be local and sustainable," Huggins said.

I really can't see rural Americans abiding by this ridiculous law. However, it does seem to fit with the gov't taking away more and more freedoms and enacting greater control. They are moving towards complete reliance on gov't then they can give and take as they please.

The core of the issue is that there's too many people. This is an over-population problem. We seem to breed like rabbits.

so make your own, cry babies. a couple sheets of 1/4 inch mild, a few sacks of refractory cement. voila, diy wood stove. use food grade stainless and make "wet" stoves that also produce bath water, or baseboard heat (or heated PW for that matter). cascade a couple of sterling engines as pumps, and you can have a full wood powered baseboard, radiator, or heated slab heating system for a single floor building

Wood burning rocket stoves and ovens produce few pollutant emissions as they have clean combustion which reduces dirty CO emissions caused by incomplete combustion.


At the heart of the matter is people are not rational. They are trained to be even less rational in most western nations. So rational arguments fall on deaf ears.

A single volcano erupting for one day produces more emissions than all US wood burning stoves produce in several years. Despite this people still are lead into believing Man is behind climate change rather than Natural cycles and Nature.

So is burning bodies, perhaps instead of wood people just need to start burning bodies....

Build your own wood burning stove with the 55gal barrel kits. With or without fans.

Well fine then. I just won't use any kind of stove when burning wood from now on. There, problem solved.

Obama hates rural americans. Remeber his snotty quote about "people in small towns with guns and religion" or something like that. To him, if you live somewhere beautiful with snow and trees it means you are a honky KKK member and must be brought to heel. It's just the way he and those around him think.
