Ecoweenies on parade (part 3) « Caulk is cheap

You know, this shit writes itself. Today’s contributor is none other than President Barack Obama. In his press conference today, he threw his support behind the Waxman-Markey climate change bill. And he is supposed to be the smartest guy in Washington:

At a time of great fiscal challenges, this legislation is paid for by the polluters who currently emit the dangerous carbon emissions that contaminate the water we drink and pollute the air we breathe.

I’m no science whiz but the water I drink hasn’t turned into Perrier yet. And I’m confused. Am I included in the “polluter” category because I am emitting “dangerous” emissions that “pollute the air we breathe” by breathing out?

In the end I suppose it doesn’t matter. I will pay for it.

    I’m taking a pass on the current debate, though I’m reading your posts on the matter with interest. I just figured if you cop to air pollution, you might get taxed. Is all.

    You’re not new here so the only thing I can figure is that you are not paying attention. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. I don’t want to spend trillions of dollars on a policy that will have little, if any, effect on the temperature of the world and most likely will seriously harm our economy (China and India love the idea) and makes energy more expensive for the poorest of the poor in the US.
