A Controversial Ozone “Ruling” That Threatens Jobs AND the Economy

Mercola.com “Coming Soon: a Controversial “Ruling” That Threatens Your Job AND the Economy” April 25 2012.

Story at-a-glance

  • Ozone is not inherently bad, nor dangerous. It’s a normal part of your air supply, and it’s only when ozone levels are excessive that health problems can occur
  • At the appropriate natural levels like you find outside on a non-polluted day, ozone is not only effective – it’s nature’s method for cleaning the air we breathe — it’s naturally safe
  • The EPA’s latest ozone ruling is unsupported by scientific evidence and may cost the U.S. a trillion dollars and millions of lost jobs

My Thoughts: Just another example of unnecessary regulation hurting the economy.

Inflation

Alan Greenspan on Meet the Press “We can always print more money..”

They are talking about changing the way inflation is calculated for the CPI again.  I can only guess in hopes to make people think that inflation is low, and to raise taxes without anyone knowing and decrease social security without anyone knowing.
