CO2 is set to be labelled a “public endangerment” by the Obama Administration.
The US environment Protection Agency …
is proposing to find that the current and projected concentrations of the mix of six key greenhouse gases—carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6)—in the atmosphere threaten the public health and welfare of current and future generations. This is referred to as the endangerment finding.
The Administrator is further proposing to find that the combined emissions of CO2, CH4, N2O, and HFCs from new motor vehicles and motor vehicle engines contribute to the atmospheric concentrations of these key greenhouse gases and hence to the threat of climate change. This is referred to as the cause or contribute findings
So be aware that when you breath out you are endangering the environment, destroying the planet. No joke there’s 6 billion of us and rising. Rising so much that environmentalists are suggesting we halve our population. No guesses for who would be last on the list to be euthanased.
But interestingly the EPA do not mention the biggest green house gas component. Water Vapour. That would stop you boiling the kettle or going out for a jog.
CO2 of course is a nutrient. Trees breath it in and breath out oxygen.
A whole range of biomatter gives out CO2 every day in massive quantities – dwarfing that which humans give out. Strange that this outpouring is said to be in ‘balance’ somehow, but human emissions are ring fenced out of the carbon cycle. The amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is 380 parts per million. PER MILLION. Put 1 million ping pong balls in a swimming pool – take out 380 of them, paint ’em red and throw them back in.
Go ahead find them. That’s the scale of the problem.
Oh and the small matter of the fact that temperatures have actually fallen over the last 10 years, in sterling defiance of the flawed models of the beleaguered warmists.
