How the US Gov't has figured a way to tax the air you breathe out
The US Government has figured out with the help of the EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency, how to tax the air you breath out, by declaring that carbon dioxide is an air pollutant, so that a business that releases carbon dioxide will have to pay higher taxes for producing it.
Congress is trying to pass a carbon tax called Cap and Trade that will filter down and raise the price of just about everything you use or buy; all manufactured goods, gasoline, heating oil and electricity. Even farmers would have to pay carbon taxes on the fuel they burn in their tractors and other farm equipment. That means your food prices will go up as well.
If you remember grade school biology, you breathe in oxygen created by trees and you breathe out carbon dioxide for the trees to breathe.
With a few exceptions, plants are like you and me; they generally do better when it is warmer.
Would you rather take Spring Break in Jamaica or at the North Pole?
Carbon Dioxide: The Breath of Life. Hear the testimony and see the results of the man who breathed life into plants.
Is a warm climate good? It is not only good; it is actually much better than a cool one.
Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide and Interglacial Warmth. Does more of the former lead to more of the latter?
Copenhagen Climate Concerns: Science
As representatives of the nations of the world met in Copenhagen last December to attempt to restrict the use of energy produced from coal, gas and oil in the guise of fighting global warming, many scientists and scholars expressed grave concerns about what they were trying to do, as shown in the videos posted below:
The Essence of Copenhagen. A setback for science:
Copenhagen in a Nutshell. Great pain, but no gain:

Global Warming Alarmists want you to pay them big-time!
You can come to your own conclusions as to why they are willing to risk their reputations fighting such a battle as this. In the end science and history will prove whether they are lying or not.
For the life of me, I can’t figure out why President Obama wants to tarnish his reputation by jumping on this “Mann-Made” Global Warming bandwagon. I guess we’ll have to leave that for another day.

Thank you for this fine expose. Keep getting the truth out there and maybe it will sink in for some. Well done!

Pamela, every time I think it can't get any worse, it does; in spades!

The government just keeps hitting more new bottoms all the time. I'll never say it can't get worse because it seems like some new BS is on the news every time you turn on the TV. Very good hub.
