The Supreme Court has ruled that CO2 is a pollutant. Apparently the Justices are scientifically challenged since human life on Earth could not exist without atmospheric CO2. The EPA is now thinking about how they can use their charter to control pollutant to take control of most of the economic activity in the country. They can now put forth proposals such as the one in this article:

This is an ignorant proposition since the CO2 the cows and other animals emit came from food that grew recently by extracting CO2 from the atmosphere. The animals do not create CO2 that did not exist before as, for example, burning fossil fuel does. I wonder if the EPA realizes that each adult emits about a kilogram of CO2 each day. I suppose they will propose a tax on humans for creating CO2. Our political system is going out of control, and I am not encouraged that Obama will do any more to correct things than Bush did.
