Skip to comments.EPA: Greenhouse gases endanger human health
Posted on 12/07/2009 7:27:59 AM PST by janetjanet998
WASHINGTON Officials tell The Associated Press that the Environmental Protection Agency has concluded greenhouse gases are endangering people's health and must be regulated. The EPA will announced its findings at a news conference Monday. The announcement is timed to boost the Obama administration's arguments at an international climate conference beginning this week that the United States is taking actions to combat global warming, even though Congress has yet to act on climate legislation. Under a Supreme Court ruling, the so-called endangerment finding is needed before the EPA can regulate carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases released from power plants, factories and automobiles under the federal Clean Air Act.

Prepare to sacrifice for the planet Citizen.
Very informative, AP, so how about names?
If this does come to pass, then the time has come to revolt. Seriously.
Then I walked down the road. A cow must have farted....It was terrible.
Then I visited the race track...The exhaust brought me to may knees.
Then I changed my babies diaper. Oh God...Help me!!
I need fresh air....And what is fresh air...Oxygen...and it comes from where?? Plants?? Who knew!!
EPA - Environmental Political Association.
No science needed - political ideology only.
If all Democrats would just stop breathing, the “problem” would be solved!
Putting the EPA in charge of regulating carbon is like hiring Hell’s Angels to run security at a rock concert.
You know, we really need to have the government issue, and mandate the wearing of, EPA clothing.
I really don’t want a “friendly fire” accident to occur.
Let’s bring back the ozone hole so those greenhouse gasses can escape. In order to do this we’ll have to set up a system of chloroflourocarbon offsets. Gee, maybe I could get rich on that idea (if Algore doesn’t beat me to it).
“Better out than in, I always say.” (Shrek)
Everyone who has ever died inhaled carbon dioxide during their lifetime. See, it's settled science!
ATTENTION AMERICA: THE EPA HAS FORBIDDEN EXHALING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
I imagine that they used the stats of everyone that died of drowning and suffocation (CO2 concentration poisoning) to create this ruling.
Jogging should be outlawed. Those joggers emit much more CO2 than normal people and they are killing us all!
What a day to be spewing Climate nonsense!
Here in sunny California, Altamont pass is closed for snow removal, the Orinda hills are dusted with snow, and even Oaakland has ice on the sidewalks.
Looks to me like someone is trying to tell us something!
Well, these Einsteins have officially classified CO2 as a dangerous gas. I expect Obamacare will be promoted as corrective action to reduce the human component to CO2 in the effort to return planet Earth to its untouched Gaia state.
I have 10 inches of fresh snow.
When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands.... you know the rest. We’re at that stage again folks. We have a non-representative government and a president (gags me to say that word with O in mind) who is fostering a one world agenda. Time we pried our butts out of the chair and do what we need to do before it is too late.
One rogue and unconstitutional agency, running out of control, appoints itself in charge of the entire US economy, based on it’s perspective of a few extremist bureaucrats who refuse to consider data that proves them wrong.
16 degrees this morning in my No. Calif. home.
There should be tar and feathers ready at the press conference, but, instead, all will be quiet and the MSM will hail this “great” decision.
I am a scientist and I can give you the scientific names:
These gases can be lethal and always contribute to fear and control of people. Stay away from them, if anyone is using them report them to the EPA. If possible, make a citizen’s arrest so that the miscreant can be imprisoned.
Also Dangerous to ones health:
2) Fire -Burning
3) Food- weight gain can kill you
4) Soil- suffocation
5) Bears- eaten alive
7) Trees-could fall on you
8) Birds-see Alfred Hitchcock
9) women-can drive one insane
Besides government, is their ANYTHING that is not harmful to the human race???
As long as they beat the crap out of marty ballin who cares
The quacks at EPA had better be updating resumes. this will not stand.
Why, it’s as if CRUdgate had never happened. How surprising.
The EPA has become a bunch of jack booted thugs to oppress the people. There may be a few real scientists at the agency cringing at this alchemy approach to "clean air."
Here is yet another example of our tax payer dollars being misused again and again on policies based on specious reasoning, with a proven record of failure. Where have the scientists gone?
The #1 global warming gas is water, by a factor of 50:1 to what carbon dioxide does. Ban water for the children!!!
Criminal penalties for those that speak out against the policy?
They are vastly overplaying their hand here. This will invariably lead to massive reform of the so-called Clean Air Act, and all the other enviro B.S. we’ve suffered under for too long.
Keep it up fools. The great Common Sense Revolution is coming.
Let’s vote for different people to run the EPA.
Oh wait, they are unelected.
I too was attacked by CO2 last night, in my bed. One second I’m just calming breathing in, and the next second I’m breathing out and there’s all this CO2 swirling around my head. Fortunately, it seems to have mixed with the surrounding air, but this continued all night.
I’ll have nightmares now. Maybe I should put an air-to-air exchanger over my bed to make sure that evil C02 doesn’t get me.
Anyway, I built a dome and a scrubber around my house to get rid of all the pesky C02, and now my grass is dead, and my trees are wilting. Apparently plants need C02 — it’s us against them, since C02 is death to us according to the EPA.
But remember, when C02 is criminalized, only criminals will breathe C02.
Neat way to end run “advise and consent of the Senate” on any Global Warming Treaty. Go democracy, the Democrats have your back anyhow.
According to Sen Inhofe this is no big deal.
It can be tied up in courts forever :-)
I’ve asked this before. Who is preparing to sue the EPA? If there was ever a worthwhile cause, that would be one.
Meanwhile it needs to be emphasized...CO2 represents only 0.038% of Earth's atmosphere... On Mars, which is still well below freezing at its tropics...the CO2 composition is 98%....
Here in sunny California, Altamont pass is closed for snow removal, the Orinda hills are dusted with snow, and even Oakland has ice on the sidewalks.
Looks to me like someone is trying to tell us something!
Here in Reno, Nevada we have 8 inches of the white stuff and still coming!!
That AL GORE is full of shit, man! From the movie- Dumb and Dumber
There are several “news” stories dropped today obviously to influence thinking on climate change. The media is doing their best to raise temperatures so the scam won’t die.
CO2 is harmful to humans, in large quantities. So is H2O. or N2, or Pb.
So technically.....they might be right? Right? Or is that what they meant?
