Hillary fails chemistry 101

The problem isn't "hydrocarbons". Ordinary table sugar is a "hydrocarbon", as are thousands of other innocuous compounds the majority of which are so heavy they don't play a major component in atmospheric chemistry. The problem (as claimed by the climate nuts) is CO2. One of the things you want to see in a Hydrocarbon, is least one Hydrogen atom.

And these are the people we allow to formulate regulatory policies. It's amazing that America even has an engineering profession with these sorts of morons in committee.

I'm waiting on Hillary to talk about how dangerous Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is.

Some of the known perils of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:

* Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.
* Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
* Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.
* DHMO is a major component of acid rain.
* Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.
* Contributes to soil erosion.
* Leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals.
* Contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits.
* Exposure decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.
* Found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.
* Given to vicious dogs involved in recent deadly attacks.
* Often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere, and in hurricanes including deadly storms in Florida, New Orleans and other areas of the southeastern U.S.
* Thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect.

Think she'd bite?

*sigh* OK so the preview and the post differ. The link should have said 'the DHMO website' and link to but for some reason it changed it to my closing bracket.

Dihydrogen Monoxide

He, he, he. Yea, I bet you could get a lot of moonbats to bite on that one ;->
