EPA bans most wood-burning stoves

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Does this mean the old style stove can no longer be used?

No....it means that the first person from the EPA that goes into the field to enforce this may end up in the backyard woodchipper......like in the move FARGO.

That's what it is going to mean here in my backwoods of Kentucky.

According to my reading of it - they can be used while in their original position. They simply can't be sold on or traded in when you need to buy a new one. If you have to remove them for repairs or cleaning - that is totally unclear, no surprises there.

On a slightly related side note - anyone know where I can get mica sheets? Our front room wood stove (Enamelled French one from 1855) needs to be reglazed. One of the kids broke two of the panels.

Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Thank you Alice! They even have the exact size I need! Fired off an email to make sure they ship internationally.

I not only burn wood in my stove, but sometimes coal, too. I'm saving a large quantity of the latter for an emergency situation.

In the meantime, I would like to see the EPA burn to the ground.  Defund it.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

You probably already have, but make very sure your pipes and chimneys have been swept recently. Combination of wood resin and coal soot makes for bad chimney fires.

Good advice.

I have had my chimney cleaned every three years or so. But last year, the original ceramic walls of my chimney flue began to crack and collapse, due to repeated cycles of freezing and thawing over the course of 30+ New Hampshire winters. I had the flue routed out and removed (you should have heard that lovely sound), and replaced by a stainless steel chimney liner, topped by a new cap and crown.

During the course of their work, the repair team discovered that the original thimble (the pipe connecting the stove to the chimney) had never been properly connected and insulated, which might have caused a fire. Having dodged a bullet there, we opted to install a new thimble and current-standard insulation.

My stove is over 40 years old and not as efficient as modern versions, but it does burn well and heats about half the house during the winter months.

If you are suggesting you don't believe what the EPA says, you are a racist for opposing any program the Obama administration proposes. :patriot:  Good for you, that means you are exercising your right to think for yourself, something leftists cannot live with. :seeya:

Perhaps this is the beginning of the next Whiskey Rebellion - perhaps we can call it the hickory rebellion?
