Wood Furnaces in the News Again

The Maine Lung Association has raised the alarm about wood furnaces this week.

You may remember that Eliot Spitzer, New York Attorney General and candidate for governor, raised this same alarm last winter. Last winter he organized the northeastern states to pressure DEP to develop standards and testing for wood furnaces.

We've yet to see anything from DEP and expect this issue to become even hotter by fall. The price of oil, the air pollution issues, and the growth in the sale of wood furnaces all contribute to opposition growing more vocal.
