Carbon Health Warnings?

Received from the good folks at the Carbon Sense Coalition:

Next – Carbon Health Warnings?

A statement by Viv Forbes, Chairman of the Carbon Sense Coalition.

4 May 2011

We’re told we need a carbon tax to combat dangerous carbon pollution.

The public therefore surely needs health warnings on products contaminated by this dangerous “pollutant”?

The bubbles from beer, champagne and soda water are carbon dioxide which contains 27% carbon. If carbon pollution is as bad as we are told, there should be a law banning consumption of such polluting drinks in enclosed areas or public places.

Cane sugar contains a dangerously high 40% carbon, barbeque steak contains 53% carbon and fats and oils contain over 70% carbon. These products should display health warnings:

“This product contains carbon, a declared dangerous pollutant. Use of this product will cause floods and droughts, frosts and heatwaves. Exercise caution when using.”

In fact, as every food product contains carbon, there should be a health warning at the entrance of every grocery store and restaurant:

“Polluted Products Warning: All foods sold in this outlet contain carbon.”

To emphasise the danger, the health warning should be printed in green and all food products should be sold in plain wrappers.

There could also be a “Green Tick” system for safe products free of carbon pollution. The only grocery item that has earned a green tick so far is pure water.

Diligent public protectors have also discovered that exhaled human breath contains 40,000 parts per million of carbon dioxide or about 1% carbon, one hundred times higher than fresh air. This could explain the hysterical legislative proposals coming from carbon polluted debating chambers in Canberra. Therefore, in the interests of good government, all future debates on the carbon tax should be held outdoors and no carbon polluted food or drinks should be served in government cafeterias.

Any reader out there care to design a warning label?  Just askin’.

Warming to global cooling

If you thought March was cool, you’re not wrong.  Sofia has some good posts that deserve some time.

March U.S. Temperature – 6.6 F cooler than the warmest March

It’s not just one month, but three – which is practically a slam-dunk trend in climate science.

Finally, she suggests urban dwellers cannot rely on the UHI effect to save them from the cold, Sofia has data for the 4 largest US cities too.

Go visit and say hello.  For newish readers, Sofia used to be a regular and popular contributor to The Daily Bayonet.

Nissan predicts 500k/year EV sales

Nissan is predicting that it will sell 500,000 electric vehicles per year by 2013.

This is the Leaf:

I predict that Nissan is over-optimistic, hence the new widget:

It’s in the sidebar too, for continuing fun with sales forecasts.

10:10 video, the Internet strikes back

The Internet is awash with reactions to the 10:10 ‘splattergate’ video.

Some of the best video reactions I’ve seen so far are below.  Feel free to point out more in the comments (no more than 2 links or you’ll be spam filtered).

I’m not sure what an eco-facist is, but you can’t expect perfection in the age of spell check.  Oh, wait.

Consumers are writing to 10:10’s corporate partners and getting results.  Do your part and wreck a radical ecotard’s day.
