Obama to Declare Carbon Dioxide
Dangerous Pollutant


16 Oct 08 – “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,” said an article published today on Bloomberg.

“Obama 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.

Obama "would initiate those rulemakings,'' said Grumet.

“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.

“States where coal-fired plants may be affected include Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, Texas, Montana, Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Georgia and Florida. “

               The American economy is on its knees. Is this really a wise time
               to strangle it with even more government regulation and higher
               energy costs?

               At a time when we're headed into a prolonged period of cooling -
               perhaps even an ice age?

               All to control something that is NOT a pollutant?
