If you're asking about EPA regs on wood stoves and such, they're already in the proposal stages.
I suggest your bigger concern might me state and local regulations (at this point in time).
You know something I don't? I haven't heard about anything local yet, and many people here burn wood in some fashion...
Sounds like someone needs to switch to decaf.....
Rather than the bogus and biased links you posted, Spiker, do you have any reputable news sources (Faux News doesn't count) where anything adverse has happened to an innocent land owner? And by innocent, I mean someone who did absolutely nothing wrong, and yet jackbooted thugs from the EPA showed up to take his money and rape his dog?
In Washington State, we often have burn bans implemented because of thermal inversion conditions during the winter which traps pollutants in the Puget Sound lowlands. Folks are asked not to burn in fireplaces or woodstoves unless it's their only source of heat. As far as I know, and I"m on the local fire department which responds to burn complaints, I've never heard of anyone getting fined, let alone having their wages garnished, for violating the ban.
We are about to implement our summer burn ban on the 15th where outdoor burning is not allowed. Again, if a complaint is called in, the FD responds and informs the landowner of the ban. We'll ask them to put the fire out, or put it out for them with the deck gun if they're going to be a dick about things. But in my 20 years on the department, there's never been a fine levied.
Anyone else on the board have any instances where a totally innocent landowner was harassed by the EPA?
