EPA’s next target in fight against climate change: cooking stoves
The Washington Times ^ | May 26, 2014 | By John Solomon

Posted on 05/26/2014 7:12:31 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

The war on climate change may soon be moving inside the kitchen.

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy is set to unveil on Tuesday six federal grants to universities to fund research on clean cookstove technology.

The announcement will put the EPA’s resources squarely behind a United Nations’ quest for cleaner burning stoves and an end to deadly cooking pollution.

“This research will help to improve air quality, protect public health and slow climate change,” the EPA said in explaining why the agency chief will preside over the announcement on Tuesday.

To make the case for why these grants are so important, EPA noted the World Health Organization estimates that exposure to smoke from traditional cookstoves and open pit fires leads to 4.3 million premature deaths each year.

We need a civil war. If the Liberals/Marxists want to regulate cooking stoves, I will tell them 'Hell No!!!'. My cooking stove doesn't pollute nor does it contribute to Globull Warming. Do the Marxists want us to cook with Bull Dung? They are trying to push Bull Dung on us.

Stop Tyranny!!!

Meanwhile millions of people around the world cook their meager meals over open wood fires . For these government Luddites its publish or perish. They must publish new regulations at an ever increasing rate or they cannot justify their jobs, bonuses, retirement checks and in general their own existence. Its bloated useless government at its finest.

4.3 million dead per year? From cooking? Where do they get these numbers???

Only about 65 million people died on the entire planet last year, from all causes combined.

Why don't these people just order take-out to prolong their life?

Or maybe it's suicide by cooking. I should apply for a government grant to study this.

I think that you said it as a joke, but one thing the EPA doesn’t have is a sense of humor. I would say somewhere between 2016 to 2024.

Oh...don't be ridiculous.

This has nothing to do with trying to force people to cook with bull dung.

Besides, didn't you get the memo?

Cow farts cause GoreBULL warming.

No, this isn't about cooking with bull dung.
This is about trying to kill off as much as the population as possible.
So the elite can live in a pristine world.

Millions of people are out of work, largely through the non-stop destruction of America by Executive Branch Agencies like the EPA.

They write regulations, they pass laws, they circumvent the will of the people. They are not permitted to do this, they are, including the IRS illegal.

Don’t expect the rump rangers in congress to do anything about it.

Wretches all.

I see this being imposed on restaurants, much like the ADA regulations were. They will be forced to install expensive “clean burning” stoves, exhaust systems, and filters. This will necessitate EPA inspections of these kitchens to ensure compliance, for a fee of course.It will also increase manufacturing costs. In the end, businessman and homeowners (the rich) will bear the brunt.

How are regulations by the EPA in THE UNITED STATES going to have any benefit to the millions of third-world women who spend all day cooking over dung fires in tiny huts, ruining their lungs?

Easy. 215,000,000 (say) people cook over smoky fires in their huts. Say 2% of them die each year as would be expected. All of those are believed to have had their lives shortened slightly (or significantly) from the stove smoke. That’s 4.3 million “premature deaths” each year.

Actually, it would be logical and reasonable to hope that everyone who now cooks every day on smoky wood fires in their huts were to cook on efficient stoves like that.

Which is a good job for international charitable and educational organizations, and has nothing to do with the population of the US, or the federal government.

Kitchen pollution? I began reading this article desperately searching for the ‘satire’ statement. Seriously.
If women and children are suffering from ‘kitchen pollution’ in the US, why are the Amish, who use wood stoves in many communities, so likely to live well into their 80’s and 90’s?
I agree this is intended to extort millions from restaurants who cook with open flames.

That's the point. It's unfair that those mean-old white racist Tea Party suburbanites get to grill out during the summer and use their state-of-the-art Kenmore stove inside to make those wonderful Thanksgiving turkeys. They want us cooking over sticks and shrubs like the Third-World.

Of course the elites will be unaffected by this, and the environment will still be polluted as Hell.
