A cash for clunkers plan for old woodstoves?!? Thats HORRIBLE! It would be a huge disservice to the community for these old woodstoves to be removed from the market.

Because then you wouldn't buy the "right" kind of woodstove, Puke! And Mark tells me it's a really crappy woodstove they're trying to make people buy.

Not the same type as in a car, since it's catalyzing different gasses, so it's not quite as expensive as a vehicular unit.

However, unlike those in a car, these wear out regularly, so it's not just the initial expense; it's the ongoing replacement cost.  And, of course, many remove and just don't bother to replace them when they wear out which, because the stove was designed to operate with the catalytic element in place, decreases the efficiency and increases creosote production.  So now we have stoves that burn more wood, produce more smoke, and create greater risk of chimney fires.

Because, if something's not broke, you haven't involved the government enough!
