The local police dept should look the other way or tell the EPA freaks to patrol for burners themselves then let the people of Alaska deal with them in their own personal way.

It's time for a whole lot more common sense and a lot less Big Brother BS, or should I say government Dictatorship.

I know, take those EPA freaks and lock them in a cabin with no way out. Put in the cabin a wood burning stove and a cord of wood. Let's see how long before they fire it up.

Default ***** the EPA

Unbeliveable BS--I hope every single person that has one lights up their wood burning stove and the smoke hangs like fog. This kind of govnerment crap has GOT to stop!

I would think it would be pretty hard to enforce in our wonderful state, and I hope a minor insurrection does happen (or a major one, for that matter), if they really try to enforce this!

Even Fairbanks isn't that far from having wood stoves totally banned, they already have restrictions on when you can use them, which most ignore.

Funny thing is when we have a forest fire in the summer, the smoke covers an area the size of Ohio and the EPA doesn't get their panties in a scrunch about that...

Just when it is people at subzero temps with limited options to stay warm.

Maybe if everyone lights their stoves at once, the smoke will be to thick for the EPA guys to see whom is doing what... You would think some common sense has to be in the mix somewhere.

Here is some photos of what 200,000 acre fire looks like

Juneau is so touchy-feelly goody liberal that I'm surprised they haven't starting fining bears for peeing in the woods.

The dump is 1000 times worse than any wood fireplace as far as screwing up the air.

The smoke for some summers is like a thick fog all over interior Alaska. This last summer we had haze covered days, but it was from the fires over in Russia, not Alaska. Any one of which puts more "Negitive" particulates into the air than all the wood stoves put together or cars.

I would have fired up the wood stove anyway. Screw the EPA.

Just wait until all of the tree-huggers that Obama appointed start messing with things. It's going to get far, far worse. Those people are so moronic that it borders on the absurd.
