Driving might be hazardous to the earth's health.
Warning labels posting a message that vehicle exhaust is a key source of carbon emissions may soon be affixed to gas pumps in the Bay Area -- but only in Berkeley, where leaders are mulling such a move.
The Los Angeles Times reported that a pair of city environmental panels have already OK'd the warning stickers, which are directly modeled on the warnings on cigarettes.
As of now, the stickers would carry the statement that the state "has determined that global warming caused by C02 emissions poses a serious threat to the economic well-being, public health, natural resources, and the environment of California," the newspaper reported.

In the meantime, anti-fossil fuels grassroots group 350 Bay Area is trying to get Oakland and San Francisco -- which once tried to put warning labels at cell phone stores -- on board.
How about posting the prices that were on the same pump around Sept 2008?
Any word on how printing and affixing warning stickers affects global warm . . . er, climate change?
It’s seems like nearly every product I purchase has that idiotic California cancer warning.
Or posting how the state gas tax money, which was supposed to be spent on repairing highways, actually was spent.
With gas over $4/ gal in Mexifornia, they should put stickers on those pumps that read, “Walking is good for your health.”
How many members of the City Council shall forego using motor vehicles?
Walking is good for your health.
When are the Eco-Nazis going to give up their gas-driven transportation?
Prius (Pious) owners are exempt from feeling guilty.
First the stickers on the pumps.
Then no pumps within 2,000 yard of a school, to protect the children.
Then a ban on pumps within city limits.
Every resident of Berkeley should have a sticker over its (notice gender neutral)stating that breathing produces carbon dioxide.
Reminds me of Jimmy Carter’s “turn down the thermostats” campaign. Every thermostat in every building that got any kind of federal money, colleges for example, had a sticker reminding people to keep the thermostat set at 78. Eventually the stickers had to be removed. It cost more to remove them than they saved in energy costs.
I wonder how much co2 will be created by making and printing the labels. Plus, the gasoline of someone driving to all of the gas stations to deliver them.
Post it next to “Do Not Drink Gasoline” ....
Berkeley should give out exhaust recycling kits to their informed citizens ......
maybe a free hose that attaches to the muffler that they can insert into their mouth to recycle the air
When are they going to post health warnings inside the bath houses in San Francisco?
How about a sticker to paste beside it that says “it has been determined that the state is a bigger threat to your health than CO2 could ever be”?
If they can do that, can we ban liberals from buying gas? It would serve them right, and help them not damage our poor, helpless eco-system.
I like that.
If you’re liberal ,no gas for you.
If I was at the meeting I would have asked each council member if the commuted with at least two other people to and from the meeting. If they said No then I’d say, Well, it looks as if you don’t believe this is an emergency. Why do you want us to believe it is, if you don’t?
