William Yeatman, a senior fellow with the Competitive Enterprise Institute, told Newsmax: "EPA engages in sweetheart litigation in order to cede its regulatory initiative to green special interests like the Sierra Club.

 "Virtually all of EPA's air quality regulations were prompted by such sue-and-settle litigation, the occurrence of which has exploded since President Obama assumed the Oval Office," Yeatman said, adding that the wood-burning stove regulation "is only the latest example of policy-making."

 The EPA "has targeted oil, gas, coal, and nuclear with needless regulations," Yeatman said. "Now the agency is going after wood — a biofuel."
