Leaked OMB CO2 memo: “no demonstrated direct health effects”.
All is not well in CO2 regulation land. You may have heard about a leaked memo from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) that questions the EPA findings on CO2 being a “threat to human health”. BTW there is still time to lodge your comments (as is your right as a US citizen) on this finding, details here.
The leaked internal memo, was marked “Attorney Client Privilege”.
It has some strong language about the negative impact EPA regulation of CO2 would have on the U.S. economy.

CO2 is a natural bi-product of breathing! Take a freaking biology class. O2 (which we breath in) is a natural bi-product of photosynthesis. They have no demonstrated direct health effects. Duh! An imbalance (or lack of plant life) might cause indirect effects by changing the weather. (Which I don't believe anybody has proven.) but if you think you are going to find DIRECT health effects you are barking up the wrong tree! This is carbon dioxide not carbon monoxide (which is poisonous)! Nothing like a misunderstanding of science to throw the general public into a tizzy!
