Everyone Hold Your Breath!

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in a move the boggles the mind declared carbon dioxide a public health hazard.

For those of you that slept through all your biology and chemistry classes, carbon dioxide (CO2) is the primary gas we humans give off when we exhale. Carbon Dioxide is also the primary gas that most plants need to survive and in the course of that survival turn it back into oxygen for us. It strikes me as counter intuitive to want to cut back on a gas that is vital to plant life, may of which we humans and other animals eat.

President Obama and most liberals in Congress are faithful disciples of Al Gore's church of Global Warming. To be a disciple, you have to accept on faith the dogma of global warming while ignoring the hard science and historical data behind cyclic changes in temperature and the climate in general.

This action by the EPA is designed by the current government leaders to lend legitimacy to their church. Because most of our Federal representatives know which way the wind blows when it come to voters and their church, they left the dirty work to a unelected agency. An agency that has enormous power of industry, private property and the population in general.

Now those same legislators can throw up their hands in a "it's a bureaucracy, what are you going to do?" gesture. I can answer that question, they can pull the funding to enforce this non-sense. Do not let your representatives lie to you. They do in fact hold all the cards. If they pass legislation saying that no funds may be spent on enforcing the CO2 con game, then it will not happen.

But don't hold your breath. The Church of Global Warming is a front for a far broader agenda then dealing with a little hot air. The Church of Global Warming is merely an excuse to force elitist agenda down our throats. That agenda is made up of things like:

  • Forcing us into smaller, more crash dangerous personal vehicles like Smart Cars.
  • Furthering the envy based war on SUVs and large pickup trucks.
  • Stopping or hindering power plant, refinery and heavy industry construction.
  • Penalizing people with energy inefficient housing.
  • Fighting clean coal power plants.
  • Generating an all new source for government revenue. (Think cap-and-trade, carbon taxes and environmental impact fees.)

Why can't the EPA limit itself to real hazards like dihydrogen monoxide?

In the mean time, everyone hold their breath until you can get an emissions permit from the EPA.

Just as there's garbage that pollutes the Potomac river, there is garbage polluting our culture. We need an Environmental Protection Agency to clean it up.
