WHY, EXACTLY SHOULD WOOD-BURNING STOVES IN ALASKA BE SUBJECT TO THE SAME AIR POLLUTION STANDARDS AS FIREPLACES IN URBAN AREAS?
It doesn’t make much sense to me, but an item at forbes.com says that the EPA has issued regulations imposing a nationwide ban on wood-burning stoves that produce more than 12 micrograms of particulate emission per cubic meter of air. That might make sense in Maricopa County, for example, but does it make sense in rural Maine or Alaska, where there are probably a significant number of households that depend on wood-burning stoves for heat?
