The EPA, mirroring Barack Obama’s incessant use of children to sell his messages, has produced two videos using young children to promote the EPA’s message that wood-burning fireplaces and stoves are unhealthy. At the beginning of January, the Environmental Protection Agency banned a large majority of wood-burning stoves and fireplaces sold in the United States. The EPA claims they are attempting to improve air quality by requiring appliances to burn more cleanly.
The two videos produced by the EPA program Burn Wise assert that wood-burning fireplaces lead to pollution and sickness. Other maladies the children declare can be caused by smoke from wood fires are voiced like this:
Wood smoke from wood stoves and fireplaces is pollution.
Smoke from wood stoves and fireplaces can make you sick.
Wood smoke can give you a stuffy nose.
Make your eyes water.
And even make you cough.
It can also cause an asthma attack.
It can hurt your lungs and make it hard to breathe.
Viewers are directed to the EPA’s Burn Wise website where tips are offered to “Learn Before You Burn” and how to upgrade to an EPA-approved appliance.
