As we close in on the end of December, we begin to think about the accomplishments that have occurred over the year and the good things that have occurred over the year. It is one of these that I want to talk with you about today. After months of expanding the government, spending money that we don't have, and discounting skepticism about a fraud that has been placed upon the people of the world, let alone the United States, the government today has finally made an announcement proclaiming a most dangerous pollutant that is in our air today. It is carbon dioxide.
I don't know why it took so long to identify this dangerous pollutant in our air, nor do I know how long it has been there. But there has been a lot of talk about carbon-carbon dioxide, carbon footprints, carbon paper... it seems that carbon is about the worst substance there is in the world. And now it's in our air. I can't think of anything worse.
I think the most sensible thing that could come of this is that an executive order by President Obama be passed immediately requiring that anyone in many carbon dioxide into the air be placed in jail immediately. Once the committee on global warming has decided what to do about these omissions, only then may we be released from jail. A few years ago cigarette smoke was about the worst pollutants in the air. Now there's this awful gas causing greenhouse effects called carbon dioxide.
Why did it take so long to organize this Council in Copenhagen? Representatives came from 140 different nations each going there on a separate plane to produce public service announcements on how bad Jets are. They have even produced a movie demonstrating how horrible the effects of global warming are going to be in just a few short years. I can't think of anything worse.
If we intend to do anything about our future, we must stop allowing carbon dioxide to get into our air from all sources. If we don't, I don't have to tell me how awful it will be. Life as we know it will cease to exist. There may only be one more generation of man to come. Maybe the worst part will be that we will not have paid off all of the debt we have accumulated and we did not enact high enough taxes such as Cap and Trade to make a difference. I can't think of anything worse.
