SOMETIMES THE DRAGON WINS

Here is another example of why elections matter — why good citizens cannot choose to sit on their hands.

The Obama administration today cleared away the last legal obstacle to regulation of greenhouse gas emissions by the Environmental Protection Agency by issuing a formal declaration that they pose a threat to human health and the environment.

The gases, which include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons and sulfur hexafluoride, are emitted by the tailpipes of motor vehicles, coal-burning power plants and a wide variety of other industrial facilities.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2007 that EPA is obligated under the federal Clean Air Act to classify carbon dioxide as a potentially dangerous air pollutant. Carbon dioxide is the most common of several greenhouse gases that are contributing to the warming of Earth’s atmosphere.  (continued here)

Carbon dioxide is not a toxin.  We exhale the stuff.  Carbon dioxide pervades our world.   Methane we fart (see here). What is at issue is whether or not we can burn enough coal and oil to affect the world’s climate.  Nobody knows the answer.  The science is not settled.  In fact, politics has corrupted the science, and our biased corporate news media refuses to talk about it.  See THE STRANGE BUSINESS OF “CLIMATEGATE”.

Even if we have a right to be concerned about carbon dioxide, we do not need the EPA to regulate it as a toxin.  If burning fossil fuels is a problem, we can tax it, and people will naturally look for alternatives.  No new government agency or special powers are required.   Unfortunately, ambitious busybodies see global warming as an excuse to run every detail of our lives.  On every front, the environment, health care, education, welfare, …these people lust for and grab for power.  For the sake of raw power and inflated egos, these people will wreak havoc upon our economy and make us their serfs.

Frankly, I would rather go down fighting.

It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, “Peace! Peace!” — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!   — Patrick Henry (from here)
