More Poison for Less Carbon?

As Senators enter the final rounds of negotiations on the climate and energy bill, big utility companies apparently are making unconscionable demands that threaten the health and safety of all Americans.



For example, The Hill reports: "Power company officials are now asking for relief from upcoming EPA restrictions on pollution the agency has long regulated under the Clean Air Act, including ozone, particulate matter and lead." Other stories also suggest that big utilities want the United States Senate to somehow bargain away EPA's authority to protect America from dirty air and water.



These demands are unacceptable.

This whole business about CO2 and climate change is a hoax. The goal is to tax Americans to death with the so called cap and trade.

Yeah, Yeah!



"Approximately 80% of our air pollution stems from hydrocarbons released by vegetation, so let's not go overboard in setting and enforcing tough emission standards from man-made sources." ---Ronald Reagan



"The American Petroleum Institute filed suit against the EPA [and] charged that the agency was suppressing a scientific study for fear it might be misinterpreted ... The suppressed study reveals that 80 percent of air pollution comes not from chimneys and auto exhaust pipes, but from plants and trees."---Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan, in 1979



"If you've seen one redwood, you've seen them all." --- Ronald Reagan



"Trees cause more pollution than automobiles do." ---Ronald Reagan, 1981



"A tree is a tree. How many more do you have to look at?" ---Ronald Reagan

1966, opposing expansion of Redwood National Park as governor of California



"All the waste in a year from a nuclear power plant can be stored under a desk." ---Ronald Reagan



"I have flown twice over Mt St. Helens out on our west coast. I'm not a scientist and I don't know the figures, but I have a suspicion that that one little mountain has probably released more sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere of the world than has been released in the last ten years of automobile driving or things of that kind that people are so concerned about."---Ronald Reagan,1980.



(Actually, Mount St. Helens, at its peak activity, emitted about 2,000 tons of sulfur dioxide per day, compared with 81,000 tons per day by cars.)

Reagan was no more an idiot than the poor excuse for a president we now have.

Does your silence on the issue indicate that you concede that CO2 is not a polutant?
