Climate Creationist L.A. Mayor Thinks CO2 Causes Asthma

Another day, another AGW wackjob

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Tuesday rebuked Valero Energy Corp. and Tesoro Corp., which operate refineries in Wilmington, for bankrolling a measure that would effectively scuttle the state’s efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions.

“Go home, Texas oil companies,” Villaraigosa urged at a news conference aimed at encouraging voters to oppose Proposition 23, a November ballot initiative to suspend California’s 2006 climate change law until the state’s unemployment rate drops.

“We won’t compromise our environmental and health standards so you can make more money,” he said.

The sharp tone was an early indication of the battle expected over the measure, which proponents say would save jobs and lower energy costs but that opponents say will choke California’s pioneering effort to reduce planet-warming pollutants and attract alternative-energy jobs.

Flanked by community activists from Latino neighborhoods, Villaraigosa accused San Antonio-based Valero and Tesoro of “dirty tricks,” adding that because of asthma from poor air quality, “More Californians will get sick if Prop. 23 passes.”

Now, yes, exhaust from petroleum based vehicles can, indeed, cause poor air quality, especially in an area like Los Angeles County. I think we can agree on that, can’t we? Of particular not are the limo’s, SUVs, and private jets that all the L.A. based celeb’s tend to use as conveyances.  Hey, I wonder if Mayor Villaraigosa used his motorcade when he went to Lakers games? Anyhow, Villaraigosa is not referring to actual smog, but, to CO2, based on his “climate change” rant. CO2 is not a pollutant, it is not smog, no matter what the unhinged would like you sheeple to think.

Interestingly, the cleaner the air, the more it has warmed in Eastern Europe.

    Can someone explain how a gas measured in part per million can cause so much alledged problem?

    Then, why does anyone do business in California?

    There are no known causes of “C Right parenthesis at symbol” causing an increase in “resperation” rate or an increase in respiration rate.

    That sounds awfully much like a statement of fact about Teach, ‘lil LIAR. Perhaps you should rephrase it. False assumptions- like the ones you regularly make about most of us here- are LIES.

    Are you a LIAR, ‘lil LIAR johnnie ryan?

    Hhahahahaa. I think they should leave. Have them move to Nevada or Utah.
    The mayor is asking for jobs to leave his state that they probably should. Especially since if those businesses that stay will face higher tax rates and a more UNeducated labor force.
