    Default EPA set to delare Carbon Dioxide a "Public Danger"

    This may happen as soon as Monday 7 Dec. One reason EPA is going to do this is once CO2 is a "public danger" it can unilaterally revise automobile exhaust emissions regulations to more stringently limit CO2 emissions.

    If you want a ZR1 or a Z06, order them, now. 2011 may be too late.

    Also...

    ...everyone needs to reduce activity so they won't breathe so hard as that will reduce CO2 emissions.

    We voted for change we can live with.
    Looks like we may actually get a revolution we're going to pay a lot for.

    They're doing this now for two reasons:
    1) The Copenhagen Conference on Climate Change happens next week, and the EPA bureaucrats are embarrassed that the US never signed onto the Kyoto accords. They want something to show for Copenhagen this time around.

    2) The ClimateGate scandal is undermining public confidence in how climate change data has been acquired, analyzed and used to advance legislation like Cap-and-Trade. As a result, it's not particularly likely that Cap-and-Trade will actually pass, so the EPA is going to simply start regulating CO2 without waiting for congressional action.

    Someone needs to sue them. Now.

    Exactly what I was thinking when I saw the title of your post!


    Regulate CO2 and tax it? Why not. Carbon credits are out now that the global warming stuff has been shown to manipulated. Everyone knows CO2 is a by product of simply breathing. Would not surprise me this would come out at some point.

    The Environmental PERVERSION Agency has wanted a means in which to justify their existence and stiff YOU the individual with some sort of redistribution ponzi scheme as of lately.

    Psst: Charlie,
    Did you mean "Dihydrogen Monoxide"? Because you know that's a very dangerous chemical substance.

    If we get rid of CO2, what will the plants and trees breathe? Wait a minute, trees and plants produce oxygen. Isn't that what we breathe?

    The EPA has us buy the throat for a long time, I agree they should be taken care of they are to powerful. I agree with Hib you need to get your factory hot rod soon it could be like 1971 all over again. The new car makers are in trouble already and the goverment wants to add to the there problems with new regulations that put more strain on them. you got to love them LOL........................ billy

    WOW!

    Photosynthesis produces oxygen with the aid of sunlight.
    At night, the plants/trees etc. respirate like all of us - they take in oxygen and expell CO2.
    Here's a strange -
    When I went to look up the details, most sites do not even mention the respiration part. BTW the ptotosynthesis does produce net positive oxygen, albeit considerably high CO2. I guess it's not politically correct anymore.
    So our science has been corrupted by politics??

    Not to forget the cow methane/co2.
    Let's keep Al employed. All you nasty polluters are f******* the earth.
    BTW the chinese do not pollute!!

    Get out the dominoes

    I hope all who've expressed opinions will write either the President (c/o The White House, Washington DC) or the Director of the EPA and express our displeasure.

    Posting here, while it allows us to vent, does little towards changing the situation.
