Change out bill
« on: January 04, 2019, 05:55:34 PM »

Just saw this. What are the chances it goes through? Wish it would, I want to upgrade to a more efficient boiler in the next year or two.

EPA has determined that replacing just one old, inefficient wood heater is equivalent to taking five dirty diesel engines off the road and the monetized public health benefits from replacing the nationís old, inefficient residential wood heaters would be up to $126 billion per year.

Mmmm, have to wonder, how many million did it take to arrive at this figure? I don't feel quite as bad now for cranking my old diesel truck since apparently there are 5 running in the back yard already.


I like the idea though, as long as the smokers don't get further penalized
