    You're giving the government a lot of credit. My guess is the study will cost us tons of money, prove inconclusive and result in a page six story on how backyard grilling may/may not be bad for you. The same page six story that has run every spring for as long as I can remember.

    Boatbum, you maybe aren't giving the government enough credit. They are very good at passing legislation, and fairly good at enforcing it. Whether it's good legislation, that's another matter altogether.

    Love Gary's new suit!

  11. Don't laugh to hard at this, the EPA is shutting wood stoves, outdoor boilers and have even gone after farmers got their techniques.

    Even looking at how you fertilize your lawn & garden.

    Not gonna go off on a rant here, but that's what ya get when a government wants to control the people rather than serve the people !

    If something is not broke, our government will fix it ! :biggrin:

    Settle down everybody.......the 'study' is designed for a student project at UC Riverside, revolves around propane usage and costs 15,000. Secondly, it's being paraded by Fox News....truthfully accurate only about 13% of the time. It's a known fact many in Congress want to gut the EPA and this is another way to outlandishly stretch the reality of a study in an attempt to make them look bad. I, for one, am thankful for the EPA watchdogs knowing full well if there was no EPA, corporations would still be polluting the shit outta our rivers, streams, oceans and air. Just consider the air quality in China, as one in particular, which has no oversights on the manufacturers and could care less about the locals. Of course, this is my 2 cents and my opinion only....

    I agree with almost all of this ! However I don't think Fox gets anywhere near being truthful 13% of the time !

    I  best enjoy smoking out my "freaking" neighbor who butchered their side of my big live oak tree, while I can.
