Is CO2 a pollutant and how should it be legislated?

Poll closed Aug 7, 2012.
  1. Yes -- And EPA has sole disgression in policing it.

    16.7%
  2. Yes -- But more specific legislation is required.

    11.1%
  3. No -- It's NOT a pollutant. It's a theory.

    72.2%
  4. Don't know. Haven't heard of man-made global warming.

    I hate polls, but we've wasted enough time tiptoeing around the obvious central question of what should be done about Global Warming..

    Time to get down to brass taxes..

    Nope. It is a naturally occuring substance. It is the byproduct of aerobic metabolism and a source of food for much of the earth's living things. Also, it's what makes beer all nice and bubbly!

    So much arguing about Global Warming -- so little opinion on what to do about it??

    Nobody wants to weigh in on WHAT we should be doing?

    Let's do a simple experiment

    Place a plastic bag over your head and wrap it tight

    Then tell us if Carbon Dioxide is a pollutant

    Then water must be a pollutant as well for if I held your head under you would die just as you would in your example.

    Salt, arsenic, lead and hundreds of other things in daily use are toxic and "naturally occurring".

    I suggest you limit your intake of all of them.
