Quit Breathing: You're Causing Global Warming

Quit breathing or just drop dead. Yes, you heard me right. The EPA is getting ready to declare man-made carbon dioxide a public danger and a cause of global warming that awful thing we've been warned about now for years by those scientific scholars who always put their work above an personal or political agenda. The head of the EPA, Lisa Jackson could not possibly have any personal or political reasons for placing carbon dioxide on the dangerous greenhouse gases list she is above such things, being an unelected official appointed by Obama; therefore she is only concerned about the welfare of the nation and of the world. We humans and our animal friends are the biggest emitters of carbon dioxide on the planet, so perhaps we should just all drop dead and the problem would be solved. But then the poor plants of the world would have nothing to breathe as they take in that awful "greenhouse gas" we emit, carbon dioxide , and give us back the oxygen we breathe. Seriously, if carbon dioxide is labeled a greenhouse gas by the EPA, then this is nothing but a back door to a non-legislative "cap and trade" with many large CO2 emitters such as power companies, cement kilns, oil refineries and chemical plants having to make very expensive improvements to curb greenhouse gas output with those cost being passed on the the American consumer in the form of higher utilities, higher prices at the pump and higher prices on almost everything we buy, including the food we eat. Hell, maybe they just are planning to starve us to death.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will early next week, possibly as soon as Monday, officially declare carbon dioxide a public danger, a trigger that could mean regulation for emitters across the economy, according to several people close to the matter.

Such an "endangerment" decision is necessary for the EPA to move ahead early next year with new emission standards for cars. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has said it could also mean large emitters such as power stations, cement kilns, crude-oil refineries and chemical plants would have to curb their greenhouse gas output.

The announcement would also give President Barack Obama and his climate envoy negotiating leverage at a global climate summit starting next week in Copenhagen, Denmark and increase pressure on Congress to pass a climate bill that would modify the price of polluting.

While environmentalists celebrate EPA's authority to regulate greenhouse gases, it has caused many large emitters to cringe at the potential costs of compliance.

According to a preliminary endangerment finding published in April, EPA scientists fear that man-made carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are contributing to a warming of the global climate. Senior EPA officials said in November the agency would likely make a final decision in December around the time of the summit. read more from FOX
