Who hasn’t seen the League of Conservation Voters’ commercial showing black smoke coming out of smokestacks, the ad meant to support the new carbon-dioxide regulations being forced on us by the Environmental Protection Agency? What a crock.

Didn’t these people take science in school? Carbon dioxide is a clear, colorless, odorless gas. It is created with every breath you take. It can only be detected with scientific equipment. If it really is true that human-created carbon dioxide is causing global warming, there hasn’t been any warming since 1998. So these regulations will cost you dearly just so we can reduce the warming of the earth about 0.01 degrees by 2100. How much of your money are you ready to spend for nothing?
