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.

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?
I know a 20-year old boy/man who says he’s a vegetarian to save CO2.
Next time I have the opportunity I’m going to try and tell him that meat is an easily-producable product, meaning that if he doesn’t eat it, someone else, eg. some Chinese person eager to get a nice chunk of beef, will.
If he wants to give up meat so a Chinese person can have it, that’s fine.
Their propensity for random actions with ZERO knowledge about the actual outcome is ASTOUNDING.
The list, ping
Not to mention the Chinese pollutants of heavy metal and sulfides is totally overlooked by the greenpeace idiots.
The #1 global warming gas is water, by a factor of 50:1 to what carbon dioxide does. Ban water for the children!!!
Don’t you mean “Di-Hydrogen Monoxide” it sounds even scarier!!!
I know CEI has lawsuited EPA in the past.
“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.”
Don’t forget “farm animals” in the list of emitters, since methane is #2 on the “hit list”. The others look to be nitrous oxide (N2O, good riddance) and likely two flourinated gasses.
Yes farmers, they’re coming after you too.
The idea that CO2 and methane are “pollution” is patently absurd, but par for the course for 0 and his merry band.
Indeed. The decision can can be challenged in court once regulations are promulgated. And by then the magnitude of the deception (not just emails, but computer code manipulation to get the result wanted, the hockey stick fraud and evidence of CO2 being a lagging indicator after temperatures have risen, not before) will be more widely understood. I have hope that sanity will prevail.
For any that have not seen it, read the best summary of the expose:
Funny you mention that...
Every government on this earth is the chief threat to the lives and property of its own citizens.
It’s not as if we don’t know what a pack of thieves and scoundrels are assembling in Copenhagen.
They are determined to rule, and that’s a fact.
