CO2 a Dangerous pollutant?

According to Alex Jones at, Obama is to use the EPA to declare CO2 being a dangerous pollutant.

How silly can it get?

The very gas that is an absolute requirement for all plant life on earth, and subsequently all life on earth, will be classified as a “dangerous pollutant”?

Will this mean that the farmers will no longer be allowed to inject additional CO2 into their greenhouses to boost production?
Will you have to have a special permit to handle this “dangerous pollutant” in the future?

One must ask – has these guys even considered what you get taught in primary school biology classes?

Quote from the article.

“CO2 is not a pollutant. In simple terms, CO2 is plant food,” notes John R. Christy, professor of
Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Alabama. “The green world we see around us would
disappear if not for atmospheric CO2. These plants largely evolved at a time when the atmospheric
CO2 concentration was many times what it is today. Indeed, numerous studies indicate the present
biosphere is being invigorated by the human-induced rise of CO2. In and of itself, therefore, the
increasing concentration of CO2 does not pose a toxic risk to the planet.”

Good to see that some hasn’t forgot their lessons.
