EPA Proposes Nutzoid CO2 Rule

The Proposed Endangerment and Cause or Contribute Findings for Greenhouse Gases Under Section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act [here] was signed by EPA Chief Administrator Lisa Jackson [here] today (April 17, 2009).

Jackson is fulfilling an Obama campaign promise: to severely impoverish the citizenry by crippling the economy of the U.S. via the criminalization of the emission of carbon dioxide.

The New CO2 Rule reads in part:

Today the Administrator is proposing to find that greenhouse gases in the atmosphere endanger the public health and welfare of current and future generations. Concentrations of greenhouse gases are at unprecedented levels compared to the recent and distant past. These high atmospheric levels are the unambiguous result of human emissions, and are very likely the cause of the observed increase in average temperatures and other climatic changes.

That’s complete bullsh*t. Carbon dioxide is the principle nutrient in photosynthesis and hence the building block of all life. It is not a pollutant. Current concentrations of atmospheric CO2 are NOT unprecedented — for the last 200 million years CO2 concentrations have been greater, as much as 15 to 25 times greater than they are today. The global temperature trend widely observed over the last ten years has been downward.

The EPA statement goes on:

The effects of climate change observed to date and projected to occur in the future – including but not limited to the increased likelihood of more frequent and intense heat waves, more wildfires, degraded air quality, more heavy downpours and flooding, increased drought, greater sea level rise, more intense storms, harm to water resources, harm to agriculture, and harm to wildlife and ecosystems – are effects on public health and welfare within the meaning of the Clean Air Act. In light of the likelihood that greenhouse gases cause these effects, and the magnitude of the effects that are occurring and are very likely to occur in the future, the Administrator proposes to find that atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases endanger public health and welfare within the meaning of Section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act.

Again, utter tripe. There has been no observed climate change. Global temps are dropping. There is zero likelihood of “more frequent and intense heat waves.” Instead climatologists (including some from the IPCC) are predicting continued cooling for the next 30 years, based on oceanic perturbations such as the Pacific Decadal Oscillation.

The EPA claims CO2-induced global warming has already caused more wildfires. Yet the actual data show that the U.S.has been on a downward trend, experiencing FEWER wildfires per year, since 1981! The facts directly refute the EPA’s contentions!

It is true that wildfire acreage has gone up, but that is because the US Forest Service has induced megafires through a hands-off Let It Burn fire policy, which has absolutely nothing to do with mythical global warming.

The EPA is not claiming increased fire acreage — their claim is increasing number of fires which is a complete counter-factual.

Megafires do emit megatons of CO2. The policy of the USFS is to promote megafires and hence mega emissions. Will the EPA therefore crack down the USFS Let It Burn policies?

Don’t hold your breath.

Or maybe you should. Thanks to this latest atrocity of pseudo-science by the Obama Administration, your very act of breathing is now a crime and will be taxed to the max.

Al’s Big Hoax has come home to roost, as predicted, in the most taxaholic, oppressive, and anti-American government in our 200+ year history.

Why are there science classes in public school? The basis for the human existence is the exchange of life gases, including carbon dioxide. The very existence of carbon dioxide keeps the world from oxidizing… rusting… burning up. Think about it. Think about the physical chemistry of oxygen and carbon, and then tell me carbon dioxide is a pollutant. Does not make on iota of sense.

It does make a great population control vehicle. If we have a world wide problem, it is too many people. Medicine endangers the world more so than CO2. Shut down the hospitals, the drug producers, make more guns, and do something positive to solve the problem of too many people. Maybe we should ignore the Jim Jones of the world, the Islamic fundamentalists looking for paradise, the North Korean and Iranian power freaks. It is about too many people on too small a planet. Somali pirates are Robin Hood providers. They are only reacting to overfishing by the Taiwanese. Sure.

And CO2 is a pollutant. We do live in a crazy world, and it has to come from inadequate education early on. But then again, the old hooktender told me most of them school teachers didn’t know sour owl poop from a good grade of mush, and ya had better sort through the stuff they was about to pound inta yer head if’n ya ever wanted to figger it all out. The sad deal is that he has been proved right more often than wrong.

This rule is the first step to give EPA the power to implement CAP and TRADE should Congress not do so. Cap and trade will ruin our industry and change our capitalist system of government to socialism. We should not be surprised this is what Obama promised to do yet he was elected anyway. Some voting for him did not listen to what he said. Unfortunately, McCain said much the same about the global warming hoax. Although, he may not have acted so quickly in implementing socialism. It seemed obvious to me that Nixon made a mistake when he created EPA as the most powerful agency.
