I didn't see any outright bans or plans for an outright ban by the EPA. Could it be that Aber's link belongs to a web sight the promotes sensationalism and scare tactics to further it's belief/agenda that the boogie man is coming? All I could find on the web was information about the encouragement of people to use cleaner burning stoves or at least reducing their burning during high pollution times. The only sites stating the EPA was coming to get your wood burning stove were of the paranoid government conspiracy type. I found 0 (zero) articles listing the actual restrictions or links to the actual law regarding the EPA's purported evil plan to make all people trying to be self sufficient become slaves to the guberment. CHEMTRAILS!
