CO2 isn't emissions or pollution. Soot? Yes. NOx and SOx, absolutely. Ground level ozone and CO are too. The enviromarxists have muddied up the definition of emissions to include normal respiration and clean combustion. Now they tax it to fund more communism.

Humans emit CO2, cars emit CO2, it’s an emission. You’re right that’s it’s not as dangerous as the other pollutants you mentioned, but it’s not healthy to inhale a large volume of CO2 either. It’s essentially acid in your blood.

Maryland taxes rainwater. They don’t need to classify something as an emission to tax it.

Nobody is talking large volumes of CO2. CO2 is good for the environment at levels we are talking about. Climate change is phony science.There is no scientific proof that burning fossil fuels to produce carbon dioxide and water causes global warming. The CO2 increase we are experiencing is good for green plants and good for mankind.
