"Now that the Supreme Court has ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate emissions of carbon dioxide from cars, which of these scenarios is most likely ?
(a) The E.P.A.’s scientists will determine the proper level of emissions, and the agency will promptly order carmakers to comply.
(b) The scientists’ recommendations will be ignored by the Bush administration, but promptly adopted by the next president.
(c) No matter who is elected, no matter what E.P.A.’s scientists recommend, nothing will happen anytime soon."
Asked science columnist John Tierny on April 4th. To which New York Times reader Dr. Fayad Mehawej has sagely responded :
"When a Tsunami comes and take everything from us ,we find ourselves facing a great disaster ,and we begin so rapidly to deal with it .But when a poor man ask us an old shoes before the impact of the Tsunami we find it’s a big loss that we cannot support !...we should first find a “Way of Life Neuter toward Nature”...It’s simply like breast implants."RUSH: We couldn't destroy the ozone layer. We'd have to put out the sun. We would have to find a way to send fire trucks to the sun and put it out.
NEXT: Cosmology On Oxycontin With Rush Limbaugh
August 10, 2005 CALLER: Is it possible to be an environmentally savvy conservative?
RUSH: Yeah. Yeah. But I don't believe that there are any harbingers of doom and gloom in the environment out there.
CALLER: So you don't believe in global warming? (scoffs)
CALLER: Or that the large ozone hole?
RUSH: No. Wait, wait, wait, wait. I --
CALLER: Or that humans created the ozone, destruction of the ozone.
RUSH: No. No, no, no. I don't. Because the hole closes every year and we don't do anything to close it.
RUSH: We couldn't destroy the ozone layer. We'd have to put out the sun. We would have to find a way to send fire trucks to the sun and put it out.
CALLER: Then what was the point of Reagan signing the Montreal protocol ending CFC productions, or restricting it at least?
RUSH: It's all irrelevant to me. The ozone hole closes. When is the last time you heard the ozone hole as a big issue? ...RUSH: I believe in Creation.
RUSH: I believe in God...We can't even explain the existence of the earth, scientifically. .. There were the other day some theory was just debunked big time and I don't remember off the top of my head what it is, but ...We couldn't any more destroy ozone. We couldn't any more raise the temperature if we were freezing to death.
CALLER: Uh Huh
RUSH: "Look at how thin that atmosphere is." Compared to the planet itself, it is really thin. You go up above 15,000 feet you can't breathe without oxygen tanks.
RUSH: That's barely three miles.
RUSH: Three miles three miles in the middle of the universe sustains us, right?
CALLER: That's right.
RUSH: It's been around for how many hundreds of thousands of years? How many volcanoes have belched pollution into it, how many jet planes have been flying around? and yet we're just as sustained as ever. If we were 90 million miles away from it, we would be boiling and we would never exist ... If we were getting too close to the sun, ...if our planet was just off a couple of million miles in the relationship to the whole universe is nothing. I mean, it's literally zero, statistically zero,
