Henry's Quote of the Week, 5th Installment

Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) on why CO2 emissions aren't causing global warming and therefore shouldn't be regulated:
"Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant in any normal definition of the term. I'm creating it as I talk to you. It's in your Coca-Cola. your Dr. Pepper and your Perrier water. It's necessary for human life. It's odorless, colorless, tasteless, doesn't cause cancer, doesn't cause asthma. There's nobody that's ever been admitted to a hospital because of CO2 poisoning."
Ah, Texans. You never let us down.
