Taxing The Air You Breathe

The Obamafuhrer has let loose his yapping lapdogs at the EPA on the very air you breathe. (More specifically, the air your breathe out.) We’ve known that it was only a matter of time before they tried it, what the the Supreme Idiots declaring that CO2 was a “pollutant” a few years ago, but now it’s about to hit every American (and anyone who does business with the US) squarely in the wallet, if we, as a nation of free people, don’t let the Socialist assholes in The Biggest Little Whorehouse on the Potomac know that we’re not going to allow them to destroy our country through their Orwellian legislation.

Hop on over to Rev. Anthony’s place and follow the instructions for public comments about this steaming pile of bovine excrement.

As always, please be respectful and non-epithetical if you comment at WUWT.

    Naturally, the global warming nuts never mention the number one greenhouse gas. Nope, that would require honesty.

    How long before the government taxes us for the hours of the day we have sunshine? Or taxes us for the snowfall that we get? Or taxes us if we get too much rainfall (after all, if WE get too much in our state, another state might not be getting enough, and that’s not fair)?

    It reminds me of the song from Camelot:

    A law was made a distant moon ago, here
    July and August cannot be too hot
    And there’s a legal limit to the snow, here
    In Camelot…

    Here’s the whole thing:

    ARTHUR:
    It’s true! It’s true! The crown has made it clear.
    The climate must be perfect all the year.

    A law was made a distant moon ago here:
    July and August cannot be too hot.
    And there’s a legal limit to the snow here
    In Camelot.
    The winter is forbidden till December
    And exits March the second on the dot.
    By order, summer lingers through September
    In Camelot.
    Camelot! Camelot!
    I know it sounds a bit bizarre,
    But in Camelot, Camelot
    That’s how conditions are.
    The rain may never fall till after sundown.
    By eight, the morning fog must disappear.
    In short, there’s simply not
    A more congenial spot
    For happily-ever-aftering than here
    In Camelot.

    Camelot! Camelot!
    I know it gives a person pause,
    But in Camelot, Camelot
    Those are the legal laws.
    The snow may never slush upon the hillside.
    By nine p.m. the moonlight must appear.
    In short, there’s simply not
    A more congenial spot
    For happily-ever-aftering than here
    In Camelot.

    I would say that Bambi’s administration is trying for a Camelot.

    “The power to tax involves the power to destroy.” – McCulloch v. Maryland (1819)

    Just wait for the NIH/EPA study “showing” how conservatives exhale more carbon-dioxide “pollution” than mouth-breathing liberals, and recommending that “non progressives” should therefore be taxed at an exorbitantly higher rate or, if they can’t pay their CO2 taxes, forced to stop exhaling altogether. Talk about merging death and taxes.

    I live for the day when everyone who calls him or herself an American would sooner admit to being a member of, say, the Nazi Party or the Klan than admit to having ever even thought about voting for any member of the Demofascist Party™, much less joining or otherwise supporting it. No other thing within our country has come close to proving itself more thoroughly and relentlessly alien to the very word “American.”

    This regulation will be the death knell of my company. While not banning our facility outright, it will allow anyone with a grievance against an oil company to file suit against the operation.

    We operate in Downtown L.A. (Pico and Broadway) and anyone who wants to file suit against us as exceeding our “allowed” CO2 emissions can tie us up in court.

    I know it seems hard to fathom, but oil companies can have have rough periods too, and we have been going through one for the last couple of years. It really sucks to have your site down during record highs in prices!

    Now with the increased taxes (federal and state), fees (state and local) and permits (state and local) added onto the operational problems we’ve had over the last two years, we are doomed. We’re a dinky company, but it’ll be 300 bbls oil and 800 MCF natural gas a day that won’t be produced and have to be brought in from somewhere else.

    BTW, does Bleach hurt steel toed boots???

    Let California, the Gulf States and the mid-west use what’s there, and oil is at $20-30/bbl. Then all that extra money is available for investment in “Green Tech” to come online if we start to really run out of oil.

    There are papers out that say that oil is a naturally occurring product of the Earth, not just dead dinosaurs and rotting plants.

    Yup. It’s funny how the LefTards keep screaming that we’re going to run out of oil & gas, when, in fact, everywhere astronomers look in outer space, they find hydrocarbons like hippies at a Dreadful Grate concert. Hydrocarbons occur naturally throughout the universe and they’re in no short supply.

    It’s becoming more and more clear that the bulk of our oil and natural gas isn’t from dead plants & critters. There is even evidence that some of the “dry” wells that were depleted during the 20th century are refilling from reservoirs below. But, you’ll never hear about these things if you only listen to the Lamestream Midiots and their Socialist Shitheel Sycophants.

    Russia…which came up with the theory…is going back and reopening fields that were “depleted” 30 years ago and are getting “new” field results. It’s gotta come from somewhere and we ran out of dinosaurs long ago.

    The original field I worked was suppose to run dry in 1970. I started with the company in 1979 and worked it until 2002 with no drop in production and no production technique enhancement, just simple beam pumping units. No one could explain where the oil came from…it was just there.
