Don't breath, you will be in violation of Obama's laws

When I was a kid, we burned coal and wood in our fire place. We often couldn't afford the oil for our heater. With this new classification from Obama, the price of heating our homes will sky rocket. The unintended consequence will be that very many more people will heat their homes with coal and wood in their fire places and wood burning stoves.

Do you know how many pollutants AND CO2 are released by individuals burning as opposed to coal plants, which scrub the exhausts, before they are released? It's much more efficient for power plants to do so. Apparently liberals don't think, logic escapes them. Economics is way over their head.

Hold your breath, or you may be breaking the law. Any scientist knows that CO2 is not pollution, nor can it be classified as a pollutant. One more reason to vote against Obama

Obama to Declare Carbon Dioxide Dangerous Pollutant (Update1)
By Jim Efstathiou Jr.

Oct. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Barack Obama will classify carbon dioxide as a dangerous
pollutant that can be regulated should he win the presidential election on Nov.
4, opening the way for new rules on greenhouse gas emissions.
The Democratic senator from Illinois will tell the Environmental Protection Agency
that it may use the 1990 Clean Air Act to set emissions limits on power plants
and manufacturers, his energy adviser, Jason Grumet, said in an interview. President George W. Bush declined to curb CO2 emissions under the law even after the Supreme Court ruled in 2007 that the government may do so.
If elected, Obama would be the first president to group emissions blamed for global
warming into a category of pollutants that includes lead and carbon monoxide. Obama's rival in the presidential race, Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona, has not said how he would treat CO2 under the act.
Obama ``would initiate those rulemakings,'' Grumet said in an Oct. 6 interview in Boston. ``He's not going to insert political judgments to interrupt the commendations of the scientific efforts.''
Placing heat-trapping pollutants in the same category as ozone may lead to caps on
power-plant emissions and force utilities to use the most expensive systems to curb pollution. The move may halt construction plans on as many as half of the 130 proposed new U.S. coal plants.
