EPA set to declare essential element of life a pollutant

Posted by danishova on April 17, 2009

Carbon is the fourth most abundant element in the universe by mass after hydrogen, helium, and oxygen. It is present in all known lifeforms, and in the human body carbon is the second most abundant element by mass (about 18.5%) after oxygen.This abundance, together with the unique diversity of organic compounds and their unusual polymer-forming ability at the temperatures commonly encountered on Earth, make this element the chemical basis of all known life.

This is insane of course, but to be expected from the lunatic agents of Obama’s Dr. Frankenstein (who, among other appalling ideas, think babies are kinda like pollutants too):

The Environmental Protection Agency concluded Friday that greenhouse gases linked to climate change “endanger public health and welfare,” setting the stage for regulating them under federal clean air laws.

The EPA action marks the first step toward imposing limits on pollution linked to climate change, which would mean tighter rules for cars and power plants. Agency officials cautioned such regulations are expected to be part of a lengthy process and not issued anytime soon.

Limits on carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases would have widespread economic and social impact, from requiring better fuel efficiency for automobiles to limiting emissions from power plants and industrial sources, changing the way the nation produces energy.

In announcing the proposed finding, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson said it “confirms that greenhouse gas pollution is a serious problem now and for future generations.” She reiterated that the Obama administration prefers that climate change be address by Congress through broad, economy-wide limits on climate-changing pollution. But the EPA finding of endangerment prepares for possible regulatory action if Congress fails to act

In other words, if our representatives in congress don’t do as Barack decrees, the EPA will act by fiat to usurp its authority.  Although I suppose that pales in comparison to their arrogant attempts by the climate changers to declare the very foundations of life on Earth “pollutants”.

Meanwhile, groups like the  Environmental Defense Fund are working hard to dupe holdouts in the Rust Belt (who at this point are mostly telling them to take this green job and shove it) into believing that “caps” are not taxes, and green jobs will lead them forth into Utopia.

    I suppose this clears a path to put a tax on the exhalations of us right wing extremists who are known to pollute the environment with our discussion. I am guessing by lib logic when the left exhales it produces clean green CO2. I hope the Obama administration has been reading the polls on this nonsense. Most Americans put this pretty low on the priority scale and if it hurts economic recovery, woah, wouldn’t want to be a Dem in the 2010 midterms.
