Recently the EPA accepted public comment on its initiative to regulate carbon dioxide as a pollutant. In response, the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow produced a report detailing its objections to the EPA’s move. Comments report author, Paul Driessen: “About 200 years ago, George Washington’s doctors killed him by draining a quart of blood from his body when he was sick. Energy is the lifeblood of our economy – and the proposed carbon dioxide regulations would drain that lifeblood from our homes, businesses and factories when we are in the midst of a recession. They would kill jobs and force poor families to choose between heating, eating, medicine and charity – based on unproven fears about global warming. We can’t afford that. We need all our energy.”
