The Supreme Court Has Spoken

Well, it’s official. The Supreme Court has decided that every time you breathe, you are polluting. Their recent decision about greenhouse gas emissions sides with environmentalists who say that Carbon Dioxide is a pollutant.

Granted, their decision focuses on vehicle emissions and not that of humans breathing. But, the point still stands. They consider CO2, a naturally occurring gas, a pollutant. What happens when you exhale? You emit this "pollutant." You are polluting the environment when you exhale.

Forget the fact that CO2 is a naturally occurring gas. Forget the fact that our planet DEPENDS on this “pollutant” to survive. Forget the fact that only 3% of the CO2 in the atmosphere is attributed to man-made emissions. (Most of it is attributed to water vapor) Forget these facts.


You might also be interested to know how CBS covered this Supreme Court ruling. On Monday night, CBS reported the following:

“ ‘The EPA has offered no reasoned explanation for its refusal to decide whether greenhouse gases cause or contribute to climate change,’ Justice John Paul Stevens wrote for the majority. Joining him were Justices Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, David Souter and Anthony M. Kennedy.

Dissenting were the four most conservative members of the court: Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr.

This was a 5-to-4 decision with the Court's most conservative justices dissenting. But you can still add the Supreme Court to the list of voices advocating action on global warming.”

Notice, for the four very Liberal members of the Supreme Court (Stevens, Breyer, Ginsburg, and Souter), there are no political labels attached to them. But, for the dissenters, they felt compelled to mention their political affiliation…twice.

If you agree with Global Warming, you are merely an independently-minded person who is concerned about the plight of the planet at the hands of evil mankind. If you are a Global Warming “Denier,” you are just one of those Neo-Con Bush-cronies.

Nice, huh?
