EPA 'Cow Tax'

EPA Could Charge $175 per Dairy Cow to Curb Greenhouse Gases

Call this one of the newest and innovative ways your government has come up with to battle greenhouse gas emissions.

Indirectly it could be considered a cheeseburger tax, but one of the suggestions offered by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in its Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) for regulating greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act is to levy a tax on livestock.

Those of us who have not bought in to the "global warming is caused by man" nonsense have often pointed out that far more damaging than cars is the pollutants caused by large grass eating mammals. You know, like cows! Well the EPA is rushing to the rescue with a proposal to TAX COWS NOW.

Maybe the EPA did not listen to the whole story. Even worse than cows are termites which produce huge quantities of green house gases as they digest wood and other vegetation. Every forest has numerous old trees that are infected with termites. Even the plains around the world have termite nests that eat other forms of vegetation. Termites are the number one cause of greenhouse gases. How are the EPA fanatics going to tax termites?

This new tax of course contradicts the strong evidence that high levels of CO2 are NOT associated with global warming, but are associated with ice ages. Since the ice covers up the vegetation, it reduces the CO2 consumed by vegetation leaving it in the air. High levels of CO2 does not cause ice ages but is caused by ice ages. That has not slowed down the global warming fanatics though.

Cause and effect has never been a strong suit of the gullible believers in global warming so now the chicken little fanatics who buy this nonsense are screaming that global warming causes global cooling. That they have as little evidence of the new theory as they did for their last ignorant claims has not slowed them down. You see the real issue is that they insist you turn over government to them so they can tax what they see as "wrong", mostly you having a good standard of living.

What they see as wrong is you having a car to drive, milk for your kids, meat to eat, or anything that is not given to you by government. They are socialists who are using this hysteria to get you to give them control of your life. Wake up before it is too late.
