Why would labeling CO2 as a pollutant be such a catastrophic decision?
Claims that CO2 is a pollutant are a myth and are absolutely false. In fact, lowering levels of carbon dioxide would actually inhibit plant growth and food production. What we see happening in Washington right now is the replacement of politics for science in conversations about CO2.
Could this happen soon?
Yes, Congress and federal regulators are poised to make a misguided and reckless decision that will stifle our long term economic recovery and long-term enhancement of plant and animal life on Earth. The Environmental Protection Agency will hold hearings to justify their plan to label CO2 as a pollutant. Congress will also consider cap-and-trade legislation that, if enacted, will make Wall Street, a few inside investors and the government a fortune, but will cost everyone else in higher food and utility bills.
It's not too late.
Polling indicates that most people will change their opinion when presented with the facts.
What you can do.
- Educate yourself on how CO2 can further "Green the Earth" by visiting www.plantsneedco2.org.
- Educate yourself on the pending legislation.
- Take action today. Write a Letter to the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. This critical committee will soon hold hearings on legislation to label CO2 as pollution.
- Donate to organizations that expose the CO2 myths.
About CO2 Is Green
CO2 is Green is a 501(C)(4) non-profit organization. Our mission is to support scientifically and economically sound public policy on environmental issues. Currently, we are especially concerned with federal proposals that would interfere with nature's dependence on carbon dioxide (C02).
CO2 is not a pollutant. CO2 makes Earth green because it supports all plant life. It is Earth's greatest airborne fertilizer. Even man-made CO2 contributes to plant growth that in turn sustains humanity and ecosystems.
CO2 Is Green is working to insure that all federal laws or regulations are founded upon science and not politics or scientific myths. No one wants the plant and animal kingdoms, including humanity, to be harmed if atmospheric CO2 is reduced. The current dialog in Washington needs to reflect these inalterable facts of nature. We cannot afford to make mistakes that would actually harm both the plant and animal kingdoms.
