One Line Monday: New EPA Wood Burning Regulations
For today's One Line Monday topic, the Flakes want to know what you think of the Environmental Protection Agency's controversial new wood burning regulations.
Not surprisingly, the overwhelming majority of calls and e-mails we got against the strict new laws. One lady who called in urged the "environmental nut cases" to go over to China and crack down on the real polluters. Another man pointed out that burning wood is the best way to conserve and preserve our forests.
Both Mark and Paul believe that these regulations are going too far. From their perspective, the Government is basically telling people they can still burn wood, they just can't make any smoke. Does the EPA have the right to turn your fireplace into a virtual e-cigarette? Send us an e-mail and let us know what you think, Flakes103@Yahoo.com
