Co2 classified as “dangerous pollutant”

Carbon dioxide is a dangerous pollutant

Don't worry, I've bought carbon offsets from Al Gore for my smoking habit

By the blogowner honestclimate, April 18, 2009

Last year year Barack Obama said that, if he were to be elected into office, he would classify carbon dioxide as a dangerous pollutant and that he would bankrupt those who want to build coal-powered plants.

Well, the the Environmental Protection Agency on Friday “formally declared carbon dioxide and five other heat-trapping gases to be pollutants that endanger public health and welfare, setting in motion a process that will lead to the regulation of the gases for the first time in the United States.”

[Yes that’s right, carbon dioxide is now a “pollutant that endangers public health and welfare” and yet smoking is still legal….we live in a crazy world.]

Indeed, Obama takes climate change very seriously as he has told as before that: “Few challenges facing America—and the world – are more urgent than combating climate change… My presidency will mark a new chapter in America’s leadership on climate change…”


“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.”

Let’s see how serious Obama is about climate change:

-Last week he flew a chef 850 miles to make some pizza at the White House.

-Drives a gas guzzling Hemi V8 Sedan

-He cranks up the thermostat in the White House to the point where “you could grow orchids in there”

-And he smokes

Hah! I love that last one. “Let’s reduce CO2!” “Okay, can you quit smoking?” “Hell no, I *need* my cancer.”
