Call for EPA to Regulate Noise Pollution

CO2 is not only harmless, it is an essential nutrient that allows plants to produce the oxygen we require for breathing. Yet in 2007 the Supreme Court issued an insane ruling declaring C02 to be a pollutant and giving the tyrannical Environmental Protection Agency power to regulate its emission. Because literally all human activity results in C02 emissions, this removed any limitation on the scope of the radical EPA’s power. Yet even now authoritarian Democrats think it is still not powerful enough. They want the EPA to regulate sound:

In a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Rep. Grace Meng (D-Flushing) asks the agency to increase its responsibilities to reduce aircraft noise in Queens.

Janet McEneaney, president of Queens Quiet Skies, said Tuesday she applauds Meng’s efforts and says it’s time the Federal Aviation Administration gave up some of its duties to the EPA.

The FAA’s job is to keep planes flying. The EPA’s job is to impose eco-totalitarianism; it has been laying waste to whole industries in the process. So Meng is right; the EPA is more likely to spare us all from the sound of airplanes — and then any other sound it decides it doesn’t like.

McEneaney’s rhetoric typifies the noise pollution we hear from liberals as they tighten the garrotes around our necks:

“The noise is a public health hazard, not just an annoyance.”

Therefore they have no choice but to make the noise stop.

Planes produce CO2 emissions anyway. It would be best for everyone if only politicians and other members of the ruling class were allowed to fly in them, which no doubt will be the case in the future as we progress closer to utopia.

Meng knows the EPA will make the planes be quiet.
