Posted on 10/02/2013 2:10:04 AM PDT by lowbridge
For many years, those of us in the Arctic have been fighting the wood stove ban. The use of PM2.5 particulates has been an issue pursued by local agencies as a way to swipe at those who choose to live beyond the borders of traditional civilization. That attack has now extended to the rest of the United States.
In a stunning move, the Environmental Protection Agency decided to ban most of the operational wood stoves in the U.S.
In those places where there is you, God, and nature, the wood stove has represented that one thing that can sustain. Going after local PM2.5 particulates has been one of many methods to attack those who choose to live independent of government. As Off Grid and American Prepper survival report reveals:
The EPAs new environmental regulations reduce the amount of airborne fine-particle matter from 15 micrograms to 12 micrograms per cubic meter of air.
This means that most wood burning stoves would now fall into a class that would deemed unacceptable under these new draconian measures. The EPA has even launched a nifty new website called Burn Wise to try to sway public opinion.
On their site, while trying to convince people to get rid of their old stoves and buy the new EPA-certified stoves, they state that these older stove must be scrapped and cannot be resold.

I like the way you think.
The EPA fails to see the downside in your observation.
What about pellet stoves?
“The EPA fails to see the downside in your observation.”
No doubt, but fortunately I am the other side of the world
from the EPA and the Obamination.
Still trying to implement Prop 21 and herd folks to tighter areas.
Getting the wood stove ready for winter here in Maine was on today’s schedule.
Who ever thought burning wood would become an act of civil disobediance.
Communism is the antithesis of free trade. Communism relies on financial repression and protectionism.
Free Trade (on the other hand) is economic freedom of association - you buy from and sell to whomever you wish.
Furthermore: this is a thread about EPA overreach and tyranny. The EPA are literally attempting to shut down free trade in wood stoves. Are you saying that the EPA should be praised for their bold 'anti-free-trade-communist' actions? You're not making sense.
I wonder if I could get them to send me six copies of the new regulations? I am running low on kindling.
Does this mean I have to return to Mars and dismantle my woodstove?
I just lit mine. Got a cup of coffee and set down to read this. I don’t think I’ll put it out though.
Have them send you a copy of the healthcare bill. That should get you through the whole winter.
Karl Marx was a Free Traitor like some here on this forum.
Washington, Jefferson and other FF-ers were for tariffs.
Spew your vile income tax loving BS on the DU site where all income tax loving Free Traitors belong.
Secondly, they're attempting to make it impossible to sell your wood-burning stove, or have a business reselling them, or even a consumer trading in their older wood-burner for a newer and more efficient model.
Lastly, the poor and not-rich who need a wood-burning stove will probably not be able to afford the new stoves designed to lower the particle size, so they either have to make do with an older stove, maybe in disrepair to the point of danger, or try to construct one themselves, also wrought with danger.
And these three things will happen without a single jack boot crossing a threshold.
The new economy. Government by bureaucrat fiat.
” From my WARM, dead hands “
Lest you believe this is not a worldwide endeavor, this ‘Agenda 21’, please rethink that.
