Obama administration faces backlash on proposed wood stove regulations

Obama administration faces backlash on proposed wood stove regulations | Fox News



... "The EPA estimates that as much as 13 percent of all soot pollution in the U.S. is a result of inefficient wood-fired stoves and boilers.





The dispute pits several mostly urban states, mainly in the northeast, against some rural states such as South Dakota, which says the rules would impose an unfair burden on people in remote areas. About one in four South Dakota homes has a fireplace or wood stove.
Among those opposed to new rules are South Dakota Republicans Sen. John Thune and Rep. Kristi Noem, who say the new requirements will have a big impact on South Dakotans who rely on wood stoves during the long winter.
"Leave it to the EPA to impose more regulations on an affordable and renewable fuel source after one of the coldest winters on record and a costly propane shortage," Noem said." ...
I would say the EPA 'guesses' that "as much as" etc etc. Bullshit! I would challenge their facts and how they came up with them. Hell, they could as well say that, "as much as 500%" and be just as accurate...
