Its better than that, they are talking about enforcing it by using helos.
How many BBQs are you going to have to stop to equal one hour's worth of CO2
of a helo? Its just another way to make government money.
Its not ALL aobut the money, there's power over the people in there.

Yup. Your statements sure are. Gotta open your mind a bit.
There are lots of past deficiencies in teaching basic physics to
US students, and more than a few poster-children for that.

the atmosphere does not in fact retain heat as claimed? I call that
horse sense. You dont need a degree in physics to observe that.
Broughton, you think I'm a troll, but if your sorry nose ever gets
within arms length of my fist, you'll think I'm a badass too. Cite an
experiment that is repeatable taht shows CO2 causes heat in the
atmosphere. Go ahead Mr Smart Ass. Bring it on. I dont care if 10,000
pseudo intellectuals have formed a concensus. Doesn't make it true.
Show me the numbers.

Perhaps you could look at a plant or moon that does not have
an atmosphere and compare how cold it gets at night. :)
I'm told it gets kind of chilly on the moon when the sun goes

There's a plant on my back porch that tracks atmospheric temperature
within a degree or two. A moon 'without an atmosphere' seems
irrelevant. How about a moon with an atmosphere of 99.07% nitrogen,
0.03% CO2, and another with 100% nitrogen and compare the
temperatures. Think that miniscule almost unmeasureable amount of CO2
will make that planet hotter for decades? Describe the experiment that
will illustrate your position. I'm interested in seeing it.
