    Which is around 9.41 and 14.9 micrograms in an enclosed area in a 24hr period. A car will produce enough carbon monoxide to kill a person in an enclosed area in a very short period of time. Even today's cars.



    I haven't stated any misinformation yet.



    Again comes the double standard. It's ok to let people do something unhealthy...unless it directly affects you. Then it's a no no.



    Ah but this thread is not about indoor toxins. It is about NY attempting to ban smoking outside. We might be using indoor statistics in this thread but that is not what this thread is about. Using indoor statistics is all that we really have to go by atm so it's what we have to use. So, is it ok to let someone let their car idle outside your favorite restaurant?
    You are comparing apples and oranges.

    There is no benefit to smoking cigarettes, none, zero.

    Cars, on the other hand, replaced a much mor polluting and less satisfactory transportation system, the horse and buggy.

    We could replace smoking with not smoking, and save a pile of money in health care costs, not to mention the cost of producing tobacco. What would replace the internal combustion engine?

    How is the horse and buggy more polluting? The byproducts are all organic and can be useful?

    the fully electric car that is plugged into a wind generator could replace the internal combustion engine and is headed in that direction quickly.

    Cities were hip deep in manure before the advent of the car. A little manure can be useful as fertilizer, but a lot is just a big smelly mess, attracts flies, and spreads diseases.

    That would be wonderful, if it ever happens. It isn't going to happen any time soon, however.

    Maybe we'll invent cold fusion.

    Maybe we'll invent "Magic"
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
