The EPA apparently does not care about grid-down scenarios, in which woodstoves would come in handy in the wintertime.
I guess the EPA doesn't know about “Rocket” stoves yet. They are used for camping and for emergencies. They burn any organic material and burn hot to burn that fuel into a small amount of ashes. I would say if you want a Rocket stove to get one now before the EPA knows about them and bans them.
In my many years of existence, if one wanted to burn something, one did. Now, you are in trouble if you strike a match without a permit and it's the right kind of match, if they even have approved a certain match.
Regular kitchen strike anywhere matches are no longer sold. I stored strike anywhere matches before they were “outlawed”. Had no idea they would be banned later. I still have that sealed bucket of boxes of strike anywhere matches.
I'm waiting to find out how much oxygen the EPA will allow me to breathe.
oh that’s where you are wrong. The EPA DOES care about a grid down situation, and wants us all to DIE, especially those who will be in hard winters.
good point. a yearly average of stove use would cut the emissions to nearly half... as wood stove’s would not be in use in the summer for as much...
