This one is coming right up my list of the most absurd headlines ever. From the BBC:
Obama to regulate 'pollutant' CO2
So CO2 is now officially a pollutant? And the Obama is going to "regulate" it? — which, in real English always mean tax it, incidentally.

So what's next? Oxygen to be declared a toxin just to make sure the whole cycle is covered? Followed by a mandatory respiration license, and perhaps breathing quotas?

Thanks to Obama, the cause of climate anti-science just made a great leap forward, pushing us back steadily to the Middle Ages. This new US Administration is following in the footsteps of Europe, using plain old fashioned superstition under the influence of witch-doctors as a cover for more confiscation and taxation.

And these frauds dare call themselves progressives.

"Oxygen to be declared a toxin"

Pure oxygen is quite corrosive. It accelerates fire and causes rust. I think it should be outlawed until such time as the government can determine what acceptably safe levels are.

I told people 25 years ago this was coming. This is another step towards forcing people to purchase permits in order to be allowed to breath. A manner in which a debt can be laid upon you from birth, a debt you will never pay off. Through this avenue every person on the planet can be made the "property" of the state.

CO2 is not a pollutant, it is plant food. And human respiration is the primary source of it, not industry.

I find this ironic since the latest poll shows that only 34% of Americans believe that Global Warming is caused by man. Since Obama will have a hard time pushing this through Congress he uses the EPA who are accountable to no one.

Why can't you guys accept global warming as real? Why do you insist on cold, hard, scientific facts that are laid out for everyone to examine before you agree to change your lifestyle? It's people like you who approve of indoor plumbing, small pox vaccines, cancer research, the ability to travel from America to Europe in one day, etc. Not only do you approve of driving cars, you probably approve of women driving cars. You're selfish, that's what you are. To show my solidarity with mother gaia, I declare this Saturday at 9PM EST to be Global Hold Your Breath Hour.

Private -- you have fun with that there sunshine (lol) I'm going to make sure and rev the engine on my old beater truck for an hour -- why? because I care.

unknown jane--be sure to hold your breath while revving, so you can offset the CO2 emissions from the truck. In fact, it might be a good idea to hold your breath whenever you drive. Be sure to keep an eye out for the Al Gore/Michael Moore documentary Waiting to Exhale to pick up techniques for longer breath holding. And if you come back here after Saturday still using words that I have to look up in the dictionary, then I'll know you didn't observe Global Hold Your Breath Hour.

We are cutting down trees and having a big ol'honkin assed fire! And cooking dead animal carcasses. And guzzling large amounts of beer out of bottles AND cans!

Probably do some shooting, too. Got a pile of old corrosive propellant .30 needs shot up. That ought to help keep the Earf warm and toasty!!!

Private -- actually, holding my breathe might not be such a bad idea; the beater truck is over 20 years old, has a cracked seal and an exhaust that needs to be fixed; she's a bit of a monster but she hauls really well(I think I may have to post a pic of her on Iowahawk's thread for Earth Day cruising...and if your a motorhead, I sincerely believe you need to check out Iowahawk, there's some bitchin' machines on display there; his commentary isn't too shabby either).

As for my vocabulary, I apologize ahead of time -- 12 years of teaching English has left me with poor grammar and even worse spelling, go figure. My grandmother can take all the blame for the words I use and misuse -- her method of controlling a rambunctious 7 yo. on home snow day leave (as she couldn't keep me outside all day) was to make said youngster go through every "It Pays to Enrich Your Word Power" in a quite sizeable stack of Reader's Digest, that and look up countries and their capitols on the living room globe (which I remember sticking pins in, for no reason other than perverse caprice, and for which I was promptly and decidedly spanked).
