It's Official: EPA Finds Greenhouse Gases Endanger Public Health

Now Obama has legal grounds to regulate carbon emissions generated by polluting industries and motor vehicles.

It's Official: EPA Finds Greenhouse Gases Endanger Public Health
by Brian Merchant, Brooklyn, New York on 04.17.09

News broke earlier today that the EPA was getting ready to make its long awaited announcement—that carbon dioxide is a threat to human health. Well, the moment has come, and now it's official: the EPA has found that CO2 and six other greenhouse gases contribute to air pollution that may endanger public health and welfare. This is huge news—it will completely revolutionize the way the US views carbon emissions, and it opens the door for the government to take action against greenhouse gases. And it's perhaps the biggest victory in the fight against climate change in US politics yet.

Lisa Jackson, the EPA Administrator has issued an endangerment finding that officially labels CO2 and other greenhouse gases a public threat. From the finding: (PDF)

Obama’s EPA Declares CO2 a Poison

You can't even expel air anymore without ticking off the climate change commissars.
April 22, 2009 - by James Lewis

I am offended, just like an old-fashioned feminist. So, I’m sure, is Mother Gaia herself. Offended, because Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has just officially declared carbon dioxide (CO2) to be a poison. (Sigh.)

You can’t even expel air anymore without ticking off our PC commissars.

Did you know you can die from drinking too much distilled water? Or from breathing too much pure oxygen? Oxidation products actually kill people — they cause a huge variety of fatal diseases. The only solution is to stop breathing.

All the molecules of life are also molecules of death. The old medicos used to say, “It’s the dose that makes the poison.” Perfectly safe substances can kill you if you take enough of them, or if you use the wrong channels to put them into your body. Inject fresh mountain air into your veins and you’re dead. You can choke on a nice big vitamin pill.

All substances are potential poisons, but if you’re Obama’s EPA you make it CO2. Wonder why? Because there’s gold in them thar gases. It’s the money, honey. But is there just a miniscule amount of CO2 bubbling through the atmosphere? How much are we talking about here?

First

they controlled and taxed the land.
Then, they controlled and taxed the food from that land.
Next, they controlled and taxed the water.
Now, they will control and tax the very air that we breath.
How long before the get control of sunshine?

In all this talk of CO2 and global warming, I am yet to hear anyone suggest reforestation. Is that to simple an answer? Or, does it just lack the revenue generation angle?

The Plumber

The Plumber

This is just another step by FEDZILLA!

As we know every inch that government grows liberty is diminished.

Once our government gets it nasty little hands on cap and trade the costs will be socialized while the profits are funneled into a few greedy hands. They have been salivating over this Ponzi scheme for more than a decade. It will make ENRON look like a fart.

"All great truths begin as blasphemies."

"Human beings with love and compassion are some of the most beautiful creatures in the universe... Those without are a plague on us all."

If they do it,

the Dems will lose the House, and their majority in the Senate in 2010.
I predict they don't touch it until after the 2010 election.

Leave Mother Nature

ALONE!!!!!!!

The government will now need to stop us from breathing.

Breathing emits CO2.

I guess all plants are

I guess all plants are poisonous now, and they should be made illegal. Its for our own good.

Think for yourself, question authority

And all those bad volcanoes! One can equal everything man....

has emitted in the entire history of mankind!

An erupting volcano will release gases, tephra, and heat into the atmosphere. The largest portion of gases released into the atmosphere is water vapor. Other gases include carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2), hydrochloric acid (HCl), hydrogen fluoride (HF), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen gas (H2), NH3, methane (CH4), and SiF4. Some of these gases are transported away from the eruption on ash particles while others form salts and aerosols. Volcanic gases are also produced when water is heated by magma. Gases also escape from pyroclastic flows, lahars, and lava flows, and may also be produced from burning vegetation.

I believe there is climate change but only in the climate of

fear peddling .

When the trash that recommended this stop breathing, there will

less CO2 in the world.

I wonder what the CO2 emissions are from a gun?

There you go !!! Tell the people that are worried about CO2 to

stop breathing !
