EnvironMENTAL Protection Agency and environMENTAlists….

January 25, 2011

This recent anniversary got me thinking.

“On January 24, 1848, James Marshall, an employee/partner of Sutter’s, found several flakes of gold that began the transformation of California from a sleepy outpost to a bustling center of activity.”

Here is my question:

Would California have reached such prominence, if all of the Gold Prospectors and related industries  had to comply with all of the environMENTALists requirements??

I am not saying that I want wonton destruction of the environment, but California (and ALL of the states on the way) WAS able to survive (and some say PROSPER) with the great influx of economic activity brought by the Gold Rush.  We need to start ELIMINATING government regulations, and we need to declaw the environMENTAList law machine!!!  America can be GREAT again, if we just let it.

Obama Administration to limit breathing

April 17, 2009

If you have not heard the EPA is attempting to put limits on Carbon Dioxide.  Here is a link to the EPA website detailing their “rigorous” analysis.  Here is the part I like:

     “EPA’s proposed endangerment finding is based on rigorous, peer-reviewed scientific analysis of six gases – carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons and sulfur hexafluoride – that have been the subject of intensive analysis by scientists around the world. The science clearly shows that concentrations of these gases are at unprecedented levels as a result of human emissions, and these high levels are very likely the cause of the increase in average temperatures and other changes in our climate.”

And some articles at Fox News, New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

This means that if YOU breathe too much, you are contributing to the unprecedented levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.  All of those cardio workouts that you do, must stop, as they increase your rate of breathing.

I also like the last sentence, “are very likely the cause of the increase in average temperatures”.  Please, do not look at the temperatures for the LAST decade.  Just because temperatures have been declining and ARE projected to decline for the next 25 years, by some scientists, does not mean that we are wrong.  I do not know, for a fact, that global warming is or is not happening.  I tend to be a skeptic, and when the leading global alarmist, Al Gore and supporters, REFUSE to debate the issue, with facts, I will lean against whatever they say.
