Just Freeze! EPA Says Burning Wood Is Bad, but so Is Natural Gas, Coal, Oil
So, you’re living in Fairbanks, Alaska, and it’s 45 degrees below zero, Fahrenheit. The high today will be -39 degrees below zero. The weather services all project lots more double-digit minus numbers in the coming days and weeks, with dips into the minus 50s and 60s. Heating oil prices are killing your family budget, so you crank up the wood stove and start burning some of the firewood you collected last summer. Uh-oh! Now you’re in trouble!

I use to live in Fairbanks. I guess they'll need to close the refinery in North Pole also, which is actually just south of Fairbanks.

Well jeeze maybe the EPA should get over to Brazil and alike where they are burning down all the Rainforests for the oil and gas companies so they can get in there and drill away.

Mother Fuckers. The DAY THEY EVER START THAT HERE IN CANADA IS THE DAY THEY BETTER ALL PACK THEIR BAGS AS POLITIANS.

Natural gas and oil do not throw up as much particulate matter as wood does, and definitely doesn't throw up the toxic particulate matter of coal which often contains uranium lead and other known killers.

Since Natural Gas starts off as a gas, it throws out the least amount of particulate matter, its usually only local dust that has been charred - AKA soot.

Wood fireplaces do not have scrubbers, thus unlike the modern coal plants that burn 'clean coal' which has nothing to do with the coal itself, but the process for removing coal dust, soot and particulate matter in the emissions, wood fires can be more harmful for everyone than a modern, scrubbing coal power plant.

Yes the EPA is going overboard, since it doesn't give people an affordable cleaner alternative to wood.

However I have seen how a few houses with wood fire stoves can turn a valley into a death trap when the atmosphere traps smoke in that valley. So I get where they are coming from.

I would say go out tomorrow and buy up as many hatchetts, chain saws and regular saws as you can buy (cause some of them will break) and if you get cold..........go out there and chop down your own tree for fire.

Get more manual tools. You will need gas to for a chain saw.

Get any kind of thing that will enable you to cut down a tree.

Many woodstoves today have features that vastly improve the quality of smoke given off.
