No more beer or carbonated drinks.
Moving air in or out or through a greenhouse should be taxed and regulated to the hilt.
Geez, another issue with emissions from farm animals. If they set the threshold low enough, then ALL OF US will be in violation. We exhale C02 with each breath. Sheesh..........
Keep an eye on Senator John Barasso from Wyoming. He is a class act.
I FART IN YOUR GENERAL DIRECTION.
“Small emitters” as in homosapiens?
Well then, that says it all.
If the Obama administration denies "fill-in-the-blanks-here", you can be certain that "fill-in-the-blanks-here" is the truth...
They will use this as a revenue generator from fines. The owners will have to raise their prices to cover the increased costs or be run out of business. Meanwhile, Barack can claim he increased jobs for more bureaucrats and lawyers.
Riiiggghhttt. We all know there's NEVER any expansion or scope creep in any government program. Why I can't think of a single program that ever escaped it's initial confines to become a devouring behemoth.
These bastards always follow the same modus operandi -- sell the programs as small and contained, then grow the hell out of them over the ensuing years. Government needs to be chopped by 3/4, not expanded any more.
Power plants could greatly reduce their CO2 tax by bubbling their output gasses through water, which takes out much of the CO2 and creates carbonated water.
The carbonated water could then be piped to living green plants, where it can be proven that the plants thrive and grow faster, and with better drought resistance due to the CO2 absorption through their roots.
EFFECTS OF CARBON DIOXIDE ENRICHED IRRIGATION ON YIELD...
Water demand varies inversely with CO2 concentration in soil.
You mean like noses?
These insane idiots are going to destroy the economy of this country right down to the mom and pop level.
This needs to be fought tooth and nail. Businesses should get together and start suing the EPA/government wholesale. Jam them up in litigation from every direction.
“Under the Obama administration, the EPA is moving forward to declare greenhouse gas emissions a danger to public health and welfare, which will trigger new rules once finalized. The EPA says that only around 13,000 of the largest emitters, such as refiners, smelters and cement plants would likely be regulated. “
PING - reminder that we are in comment period for this. We need to send the EPA a message: CO2 is NOT a pollutant!
