Skip to comments.Don't Exhale: EPA Expected to Declare Carbon Dioxide a Dangerous Pollutant!
Posted on 08/28/2009 5:19:01 PM PDT by TaraP
The Environmental Protection Agency is expected in the next few weeks to declare that carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases are pollutants, a move that would require the federal government to regulate them -- even without legislation.
That advice may need heeding if the Environmental Protection Agency declares carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases dangerous pollutants, a move -- expected in the next couple weeks -- that would require the federal government to impose new rules limiting emissions.
But some skeptics say regulating carbon dioxide, a byproduct of burning fossil fuels, may be a difficult task, especially since people emit carbon dioxide with every breath.

Get ready to start purchasing "carbon credits" from Algore if you want to continue breathing.
This country has gone mad!
Science has nothing to do with the case.
It’s power, power, power for politicians and bureaucrats that drives the whole pseudo-scientific realm right now.
Tulips are the answer. We need everybody to buy and plant tulip bulbs. As demand increases we will all get rich and be able to pay for increased energy prices to bury all the harmfull CO2. We can turn it into dry ice and store it underground..we can comress it into recycled aluminum cans and store it in foreclosed houses.
Every single living organism exhales CO2. How does the EPA intend to stop that process?
As Rush always says, elections have consequences. And if a bunch of people who live their lives drifting in a sea of malleable emotions without the slightest hint of thought entering their brains are put in charge, one must expect rank stupidity to result.
But I will say that if I can't breathe, none of them will be either.
It’s time to start ignoring whatever idiocy is spewing out of government’s mouth.
Carbon dioxide is required for plant life to live. It’s what plants and trees breathe and convert to oxygen.
These idiots are so wrapped up in their own ‘intelligence’ they don’t realize their heads are up their own assh01es.
Could be earthlings in Government were abducted by aliens and replaced with Reptillians.
You may have hit on the main point an excuse to give us yet another tax, a breathing tax. Carbon credits for living, so to speak.
If the Government cannot nail you with one agency, they will nail you with another.
America is no longer the land of the free . Now we are just another country ruled by it’s government.
These are the enemies within.
They aren’t fooling anybody....We still have many patriots who know what this country was founded on...
Maybe a Revolution coming...But I doubt the American people will go down, without a good honest american fight.
Where is the source of all that carbon dioxide?
All that Hot Air emitted from Washington DC. And a little BS with it.
The EPA can kiss my royal Irish ass.
The line in the sand has already been drawn.
We shall see.
And yes you are right about the American People.
They better have water vapor on the list or it is a joke.
Kill the EPA. It’s jumped the shark, too.
The government promises extravagant enforcement of “standard of living” alimonies (aka costly air bags auto regs, FDA requirements and other “child” supports) but then restricts carbon emissions as a catch22 to such promise when it is forced to deliver after nationalization.
Me think the government wants an excuse to deliver nothing once it takes everything over in the name of delivering to all.
It’s perfectly logical for idiots to promise idiocy, I suppose.
