Rep. Massie Investigates EPA Wood Stove Rules in Science Committee

Very first the administration went soon after coal, now it truly is coming soon after wood heat? On my farm, wood is an considerable, renewable, (carbon neutral!) power supply that retains us heat in the winter and teaches my kids the price of hard function. And we burn it responsibly. Federal regulation of wood burning is misguided. I have seen conditions in which house proprietors abuse the assets rights of their neighbors by burning wood in a way that creates copious amounts of smoke. But these disputes should really be remaining up to states, and preferably, the states should really depart it up to the counties and metropolitan areas, mainly because a a single-measurement-fits-all tactic to wood burning is ridiculous. As the value of coal fired electricity goes up because of to the President’s promise to bankrupt the coal industry, wood heat is a viable different for some individuals who are eager to break up wood alternatively of watching Television set. I imagine this administration would relatively see persons convert to the federal government for public assistance with their heating expenditures. Check out and share this movie of me questioning #EPA Administrator McCarthy throughout today’s Science committee hearing.
