EPA Bans Most Wood-Burning StovesSubmitted by goldenequity on Fri, 11/08/2013 - 07:20
Here they go again. :(
The EPA has banned the production and sale of the types of stoves used by about 80 percent of those with such stoves.
Most of the wood stoves currently nestled inside cabins and homes from coast-to-coast don’t meet the new environmental standard.
Trading in an old stove for a newer stove isn’t allowed.
(Some)Local governments have gone further than the EPA and banned not just the sale of such stoves, but the usage of old stoves – and even the usage of fireplaces. That means that even if you still have a stove or a fireplace, you can’t burn it for fear of a fine.
