EPA regulations have already closed several coal power plants across the nation. These regulation, like Obamacare, have slowed supply. What that means for consumers is higher rates. “ObamaAir” as I like to call it, which is not the Nicolas Cage movie with prisoners on a plan, but a tax on the air we breath in the form of large fees on consumers energy usage costs.
Global warming, climate change, or what ever they are going to call it next, is the banner these fees will come under. It’s the war on CO2 emissions. But does the facts really support global warming?
The politicians use scare tactics all the time to get the public in their camp. They all need something to get the public to rally around them to fight a cause bigger than themselves. It is not worth fighting if it means taking out a second mortgage because consumers electric bill is now higher than the house note.
Ok enough about the war on CO2 and politicians and lets talk football. I’ll let the article below explain the concept of CO2 emissions. Who do you like for the game? Leave a comment and let me know. I’m picking the Broncos just because I like the evolution Peyton Manning has gone through in his later years.
This article below helps to explain the concept of CO2 emissions and how it compares to the other atmospheric gases in percentages in laymen terms that people like myself can understand.

“With the possibility of the coldest Super Bowl ever coming this week, this story about CO2 concentration seemed appropriate.

cheerAnthony as you know, many people don’t know much about the earth’s atmosphere. For example, when questioned about how much CO2 is in our atmosphere most people give me a guess of somewhere between 30% and 70%. When I tell them that CO2 is only 0.04% or really about 395 ppm (parts per million) they generally look at me as if I was speaking some kind of foreign language. The layman simply cannot convert 0.04% of the atmosphere or 395 ppm into anything they can picture or relate to. In searching for some way to help the layman to understand the earth’s atmosphere, CO2, and the human contribution to atmospheric CO2, I came upon the idea of relating a sample of the atmosphere to something that nearly every person has seen, a football stadium.
So, instead of talking about ppm atmosphere, I talk about seats in a stadium. I put together a presentation using football stadium analogy and it goes something like this.
How much atmospheric CO2 is from human activity? If a football stadium represented a sample of our atmosphere, how many seats would be human caused CO2? The Dallas Cowboys Stadium seats 100,000 for special events.”
