The EPA now declares the stuff that every plant on earth needs to survive, a "pollutant". With every breath you take and every move you make, you are polluting the planet and should be taxed. Total control of the individual, and restrictions on individual freedoms is the goal.
Carbon is the 15th most abundant of elements in the Earth's crust, and the fourth most abundant element in the universe by mass after hydrogen, helium, and oxygen. It is present in all known lifeforms, and in the human body carbon is the second most abundant element by mass (about 18.5%) after oxygen. This abundance, together with the unique diversity of organic compounds, make this element the chemical basis of all known life.Now, according to the Obama administration, it is a pollution to be controlled and regulated. Meaning life itself, and every human activity, is to be controlled and regulated by government.
