BAy Area california Spare the Air

Here's what the Bay Area in California is doing. They offer rebates for families to change out their wood burning fireplaces and wood stoves to gas. No longer do they recommend EPA wood stoves and fireplace inserts. They don't do much for clearing the air and the EPA certified stoves deteriorate rather quickly (they require a lot more upkeep) and they put out more carcinogens. < That's from an EPA study which you can find here on burningissues.
