    Obviously you haven't really bothered to do any research into what they intend to do, and the impact that such will have. You just assume that they are doing some good works for the Earth and we should all smile and nod in acceptance.

    CO2, labeled a pollutant and regulated by the EPA...

    What does it mean, will it effect your life and how? To what end? What is the cost?

    And the above, go ahead, you MG and the others whose initial reaction is "So what it's pollution!?"

    ANY ACTION that creates CO2 will get regulated. BREATHING creates CO2, turning on your lights.. CO2, driving your car...

    That item you just purchased, the container it's in, the production of the item, the transportation, display.

    ALL stages, from start to finish, CO2.

    And now the EPA is going to regulate it.

    Think about that, how much impact will the EPA have on our economy, on our lives.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Agreed. I don't understand why the environmental movement is so much in love with authoritarianism. Why can't they spread the message WITHOUT the authoritarian measures of fixing it? I can only conclude that it is because the environmental movement has been co-opted by hardcore leftists and authoritarians.

    If the threat was serious, I'd agree with some of these measures. Take mercury for example, yeah probably not the best thing to get playing around with... I had a florescent bulb shatter at my last duty station and we had to evacuate the area and call in hazmat to clean it up... A bit excessive no?

    I was pointing out things that produce CO2. I left that in there to see if any of you would, in your inability to answer the questions posed, would latch on to that, congrats! You're a winner!

    Yes a bit excessive but knowing your hyperbole I seriously doubt your anecdotal story.

    Jeeze. I've broken a florescent bulb before. I just swept it up and threw it in the trash. I had no idea it was that serious. =\

    You still won't answer the questions. Thanks for playing.
