EPA Declares CO2, One of Nature's
Most Abundant Compounds, As a Pollutant
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has declared carbon dioxide
dangerous to allow federal agencies more power in regulating businesses
that emit carbon dioxide and five other "greenhouse gases".
The EPA ruling and enforcement could result in a top-down
command-and-control regime that will choke off growth by adding
new mandates to virtually every major construction and renovation
project, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donohue
said in a statement. The devil will be in the details, and
we look forward to working with the government to ensure we dont
stifle our economic recovery.
"CO2 for different people has different attractions. After
all, what is it? - its not a pollutant, its a product
of every living creatures breathing, its the product
of all plant respiration, it is essential for plant life and photosynthesis,
its a product of all industrial burning, its a product
of driving I mean, if you ever wanted a leverage point
to control everything from exhalation to driving, this would be
a dream. So it has a kind of fundamental attractiveness to bureaucratic
mentality." - Richard S. Lindzen, Ph.D. Professor of Atmospheric
The EPA decision to categorize carbon dioxide as a dangerous pollutant
is junk science manifest, but then the idea is not to save the
planet, but rather use this fake science to impose the globalist
agenda on humanity -- from a massive cap and trade derivatives
scheme, to globalist taxation and finally a culling of the herd.
Its no secret the major players behind one-world globalism
CO2 is not a pollutant. In simple terms, CO2 is plant food,
R. Christy, professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University
of Alabama. The green world we see around us would disappear
if not for atmospheric CO2. These plants largely evolved at a
time when the atmospheric CO2 concentration was many times what
it is today. Indeed, numerous studies indicate the present biosphere
is being invigorated by the human-induced rise of CO2. In and
of itself, therefore, the increasing concentration of CO2 does
not pose a toxic risk to the planet.
In fact, as S. Fred Singer, Professor Emeritus of Environmental
Sciences at the University of Virginia has noted, an increase
in C02 would raise GNP and therefore average income. Its
axiomatic that bureaucracies always want to expand their scope
of operations. This is especially true of EPA, which is primarily
a regulatory agency, writes Singer.
The EPA may soon be tasked with regulating life in the United
States at the behest of a coterie of globalists who are keen to
limit economic and industrial activity.
