    THE US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is paving the way to the federal regulation of CO2 after announcing that the gas is a pollutant that endangers public health.

    The EPA is correct.

    Without it there would be no trees for them to protect.

    Not only no trees, no land life, period. The seas would be frozen pole to pole. And the land would be a lifeless frozen desert, similiar to Mars. However, a rapid increase, such as we have created, is going to result in an adrupt climate change. One that is going to decimate the human population.

    That is what the scientists are trying to tell you. You state that they do not know what they are talking about. Since no one is really taking the warning seriously, we will see if they are correct.

    Problem is, there will be no undoing of the experiment in your lifetime, or that of anyone presently alive.

    God damnd, you're as dumb as a filing cabinet.

    Its the same reason the nitrate or mercury is classified as a pollutant. Small amounts of nitrate occur naturally in drinking water, but human activities can increase nitrate in water beyond background levels and make the water dangerous for human health.

    No, the problem is too many are being so easily scared and they are forcing new regulations on EVERYBODY, driving up the costs of necessities making the poor completely broke for no good reason, and yet nothing has changed, the environment keeps getting "worse" according to the environments yet no one has actually seen any changes. 20 years ago they said that the CFC's that were already released would cause serious problems and that we hadn't seen their full effects ... well ... 20 years later nothing, nadda, zilch, no changes, the hole is still the same size and we aren't seeing acid rain everywhere. So many other things since then have been used to scare people ... well ... where are these "dire consequences" your peer pressure scientists kept ranting about before? Just one thing ... one bit of real proof that they haven't just been conning us all along ...

    That's because Ronald Reagan, in one of the wisest things he ever did, banded with the world community in 1987 and banned CFCs. Globally. It was actually pretty amazing. And not surprsingly, once CFCs were banned, the ozone started healing.

    The ozone hole was one of the greatest environmental success stories ever. Scientists saw a looming problem of global scale, and politicians reacted rapidly. And it didn't hurt the economy one fucking bit.
