In the face of Obama’s flagship cap-and-tax scheme collapsing in the Senate (collapsing in the unlikely shadow of Senators standing athwart the legislative guillotine saying “No!”) Obama’s tame flunky at his mis-named Environmental Protection Agency has stepped up to rescue him, announcing instead –- all ready for the Messiah’s appearance at CopenHagen -- that she is preparing to make CO2 illegal.
Illegal? Yep. The quango set up by Richard Nixon to battle pollution that was setting rivers afire and smog that was choking Los Angeles* has now officially labelled carbon dioxide a “public danger.”
CO2: the gas that is a natural part of earth’s atmosphere.
CO2: plant food; the fertiliser for earth’s green revolution.
CO2: the gas that you and I breathe out.
As the Vodka Pundit says,
Ayn Rand said back in 1971 that “the logic of environmentalism leads to a society without technology.” Ask yourself what a society without CO2 would look like – or just one where it’s controlled by the government as a “public danger.”
UPDATE 1: This is “the ultimate win-win situation” for the ObaMessiah, says The Objectivist Individualist.
While here, why not trawl the rest of NOT PC including the recent weekly ramble round the interweb so you don’t have to.
