Okay, the EPA has officially jumped the shark.
Am I the only one who has a problem with the EPA declaring my very existence - the subconscious action of breathing - to be a hazard to human health and to the environment? How can a gas that we exhale and plants inhale be toxic?
I feel like I'm living in '1984'. Someday, when the corporate money flow dries up from excessive green taxation, are they going to start counting our exhalations and tax us accordingly? Yeah, it seems a little ridiculous, but, hey, the foot is in the door now, so you just never know....
What this is really all about is a back door to Cap and Trade.
The democrats know that Cap and Trade legislation is DOA. The bill wasn't popular before ClimateGate; support is cratering now.
Al Gore's statement about AGW 'deniers' is classic projection (Hey Al - your desperation is showing):
The naysayers are in a sunset phase with a spectacular climax just before they subside from view.Since the administration knows they don't have a chance in hades of passing their cap and tax scheme, they are going to use the EPA to call CO2 a poisonous gas so that they can regulate and tax it that way.
By hook or by crook....
