Once again, the unelected bureaucrats of the EPA look to rule over us
March 11, 2014 by James White NorthWest Liberty News
Just a couple months ago, I published an article highlighting how the EPA changed, seemingly by fiat, the Wyoming borders. In doing so, the EPA overturned Federal Law en force for over 100 years. Well, if you thought that the EPA had made its last “ruling” with the Wyoming travesty, you are sadly mistaken... for they are at it again. Recently, the EPA released its proposed new rules on emissions. Specifically, new rules imposed on Wood Burning and Pellet Stoves. As usual, the Feds proposal will kill jobs in the private sector, while expanding itself with another layer of regulators to enforce another unconstitutional law. It’s routine with these criminals. What will the result be if the current EPA proposal is enacted and enforced? In a recent article published by The New American, the outcome of the pending proposal is made all too real:
The new rules impose a maximum of fine airborne particulate emissions from 15 micrograms per cubic meter of air down to 12. As Larry Bell, writing at Forbes, put it:
To put this amount in context ... secondhand tobacco smoke in a closed-car can expose a person to 3,000-4,000 micrograms of particulates per cubic meter.
That will virtually end the burning of wood for heat or cooking in the United States, according to Reg Kelly, the owner and operator of Earth Outdoor Furnaces in Mountain Grove, Missouri: “There’s not a stove in the United States that can pass the test right now — this is the death knell of any wood burning.”
So, since the days of "cavemen" civilization has been burning wood to heat their homes, and now the EPA thinks that they have sufficient authority to make it go away. If the EPA was really concerned about protecting the environment, they would put a stop to real environmental disasters like Chemtrails. (Ed note: Now, and for some time, if you search Chemtrails the first hit is always the Wikipedia page entitled, "Chemtrail Conspiracy Theory") Sadly, however, the EPA is merely a regulation arm of a fascist state. How long would it be before Obama began issuing "exemptions" for friends and wealthy donors? In my view, this is another step in the ultimate goal of implementing Agenda 21; moving people out of rural areas into compact cities where they can be more easily controlled. People who live in rural areas, sometimes exclusively, use wood for heating their homes during the winter months. Here in Montana, it's routine. It is one more way to be "off the grid" for some people. Although, for now anyway, existing stoves would not fall under the new rules, anyone looking to build a new home who wishes to have wood heat would be doing just that, wishing that they had wood heat. One Montana Citizen, Gary Marbut, of the Montana Shooting Sports Association, has proposed a bill to put a stop to this madness. Since tyranny marches on until good people stand up against it, can it be long before backyard barbecues and campfires are on the endangered species list?
