Carbon dioxide benefits environment

The Environmental Protection Agency should be abolished, as it is implementing the carbon dioxide cap and trade regulations without congressional approval. The EPA revealed its true unscientific, political agenda when it ruled that carbon dioxide is a pollutant. Their agenda is based on the fraud that carbon dioxide is causing global warming. Now, they are using the Clean Air Act to regulate U.S. industry out of business or force them overseas resulting in more job losses.

Over 31,000 U.S. scientists, including over 9,000 Ph.D.s, have signed a petition ( ) that carbon dioxide and man are not causing global warming and the benefits of extra carbon dioxide to increase crop production. Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, but is necessary for life on the planet. Carbon dioxide plus water and sunlight in green plants produces the oxygen we need to breathe and the food we eat.

The real climate change scientists have met three times with the Heartland Institute sponsoring conferences in New York and Washington, D.C. See They presented scientific information refuting man-caused global warming and that the sun, going through cycles, is the main cause. The planet is cooling now! The truth was ignored by mainstream media.

The Copenhagen Treaty is much worse than the Kyoto climate treaty, which was rejected by the U.S. Senate by a vote of 95-0, since it would destroy U.S. industry. This treaty also destroys our independence as well and paves the way for global government under the United Nations. The net result of the EPA's regulations will be to destroy U.S. industry and lower our standard of living with much higher energy costs so we can merge with third-world nations and make us all slaves.

We must get out of the United Nations and abolishing the unscientific EPA.
