Today the tire shop wanted $20 to dispose of a small 28" tractor tire they changed out for me. Not that I blame the tire shop but I can burn the tire, or throw it into a landfill, as well as they can.

You misunderstood what I was saying. City dwellers buy cheap Ag land to live on, and then complain about all kinds of Ag practices that were going on long before they were resident. That includes Ag burning, crop spraying, dust from cultivation, smells and insects from livestock, etc.

Nyuck, nyuck, nyuck. Nothing like a good joke about polluting the environment, and damaging our grandchildren's heritage.

Proper recycling tires saves resources and reduces pollution. If that tire shop is charging a recycling fee but not actually recycling the tire they are not only breaking the law. but committing fraud.

As for burning tires tonight, it's not going to be dark, because it's actually a waning gibbous moon, just a skosh past a full moon, and so it should be pretty bright out tonight. Maybe a right-thinking neighbor will turn you in to the proper authorities.

If a neighbor is near enough to see it, then clearly the area is not rural. He/she should be turned in for burning in a urban neighborhood.

I have as much control over the laws that control the tire company as the laws that allow a wealthy city corporation to build their unsightly wind turbines all around my farm house simply because it's a politically-easier target than in their own backyard. I'm sure my grandchildren will do as well as I did in a world run by money and politics.

BTW, one can SEE 40 miles in any direction out here. My nearest neighbor is nearly 3/4 of a mile away and wouldn't care if I set fire to my house and barns except they would come running to see if my family was hurt.

There are wind turbines that you can see because your neighbors want them.

I have ONE neighbor and they do not want them.

BTW, I can't see any turbines yet and hopefully I never will.

But this thread is about the Federal regulation of wood stoves. I personally think they are great ways to heat in some areas and should only be regulated locally if necessary.

Then apparently you've never heard to story of the boy who cried wolf. Wind turbines are installed with the permission and compensation of land owners.

I know from a decade of personal experience how D.C. folks like to draw broad assumptions based more on partisan politics than on knowledge but neither my neighbor or I will be compensated for anything.

OP, I apologize for the diversion which my comment seems to have started. I will refrain from pursuing this here further.
