It'll be interesting seeing this move along. So far I haven't seen the EPA get engaged to any significant degree. Maybe that's changing.
It's a complex thing and some media reports can be pretty inaccurate, it can take a good bit of digging to understand.

"In light of the shortcomings of this test approach, EPA is embarking on a several year process to develop new test methods, including a new method for forced air furnace certification that includes a cold start, cycling of the unit during the testing and conducting a re-loading of fuel during the test run.

So does this mean manufacturers are going to have go through the certification process again? Good way to kill of a few more of the limited choices out there :-(

I'm wondering where this is going too. I'm all for better testing but it all costs money. Maybe they can throw some more stimulus money at it. :)
I think there will be incentives, rebates, and subsidies for any alternatives to fossil fuels.
