EPA effectively wants to ban wood stoves, but not to worry: for every dollar spent to reduce a stove’s emissions by 80% (they’ve already been hugely reduced from the 1970s), ” the American public will see between $118 and $267 in health benefits,” according to the EPA. “Consumers will also see a monetary benefit from efficiency improvements in the new wood stoves, which use less wood to heat homes. The total health and economic benefits of the proposed standards are estimated to be at $1.8 (billion) to $2.4 billion annually.”
Every single regulation imposed on Americans, from ObamaCare to mandatory mammogram screenings to cigarette advertising to hard hats is always justified by the huge savings the new regulations will bring about. Those savings never, ever materialize, yet the regulators just breeze on through, readying still more.
Will the public ever catch on to this scam? Apparently not.
