Our government has a multitude of objectives. Many involve stripping your liberties. We know our guns are up for grabs. Now your wood burning stoves are becoming a danger to the world. Oh yeah. In one more move to eradicate the off the grid lifestyle the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), also the same agency that was caught using Drones to spy on American citizens is also going after red blooded Americans who opt out of depending on the government for power by using wood burning stoves to heat their homes.
Not too long after Obama was re-elected the above agency brought to light new environmental regulations that basically attack the rights of people who life off the grid and are not dependent of their government. These new regulations reduce airborne fine particle matter from 15 micrograms to 12 micrograms per cubic meter of air. This literally puts all wood burning stoves into a class that would ban them from being used or sold under these new Nazi like measures.
The EPA also launched a website to change how the public feels about this.
I can see it now.
“Sir we have some complaints that your burning wood in your fireplace. May I take a look around?”
From the EPA site:
The local air pollution agency says I can’t sell my old wood stove to help pay for an EPA-certified wood stove. Why is that?
Replacing an older stove with a cleaner-burning stove will not improve air quality if the older stove is reused somewhere else. For this reason, wood stove changeout programs usually require older stoves to be destroyed and recycled as scrap metal, or rendered inoperable.
I kid but do you see the problem here? They need to be in full control and they are in full control of gas and oil. And if you do not have a wood burning stove then you are forced to rely on gas, oil, etc. for heating your home and family. Something you have no control over.
Most of those sources are beyond your every day reach. You have to get them from industries that mine, drill or produce them and then have them delivered to you…. industries that could be heavily regulated and taxed and rationed when ever. But not firewood. A few thousand dollars and you can stack enough wood to heat your house for half a decade. And that is exactly why they want to change things.
