Subject: The EPA has proposed harmful regulations on carbon dioxide.
From NewsRadio 1040 AM Des Moines, Ia:
Bob Quinn had information on Van & Bonnie this morning regarding the EPA considering a tax on cows and pigs in order to
regulate greenhouse gases under the Clear Air Act. Under the proposal, states could charge $175.00 per dairy cow, $87.50
per beef cow and a little more than $20.00 per pig. Comments can be made at www.stopepa.com or mail to

Friday, Nov. 28th
This is not a joke and it is not a hoax.
The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed harmful regulations on carbon dioxide.
Intended to fight global warming, these new rules would hurt ordinary Americans, constrain the
economy and impose vast quantities of red tape.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNw4JjKIuv0
Please go to http://www.stopepa.com/ and tell them what you think. America has 7days, 3hours and 10minutes as of 6:48pm (CST) to respond, the open comment period ends on November 28, 2008.
Voice your opinion on new regulations under the Clean Air Act as proposed in the Advanced Notice of Proposed Rule Making, Docket ID # EPA-HQ-OAR-2008-0318.
Effects of these harmful regulations:
- Costs to Ordinary Americans.
- These regulations will drive up gas prices, food prices, transportation costs, and the price of manufactured goods. Regular Americans will even have to carefully monitor their own greenhouse gas emissions in order to comply with the confusing EPA regulations.
- Red Tape for Ordinary Americans.
- Americans could be forced to get federal permits if they use common household tools like lawnmowers or own homes that the EPA deems to use too much energy.
- Lost Jobs.
- The higher energy costs and regulatory excess will cost millions of jobs.
- Impact on Small Businesses.
- Many small businesses could be forced to close since they are less able to absorb the higher costs of energy, transportation, and goods, and less equipped to deal with the legal red tape of complying with such regulations. The red tape could keep entrepreneurs from starting the new companies that are at the heart of our economy.
- Impact on All Businesses.
- Businesses small and large will be forced to pay massive new energy taxes. The red tape could keep entrepreneurs from starting new companies and ventures that are at the heart of our economy.
- Reduced International Competitiveness.
- The massive new regulatory burden on domestic manufacturers will not apply to foreign producers, putting American businesses at a disadvantage.
