Et tu, Oxygen?

oxygen

…Or should that be “O – 2, Oxygen?” 

The EPA is set to receive comments on CO2 as a harmful pollutant, a major greenhouse gas.  Perhaps we should inititate a similar process for oxygen.  Consider this bill of particulars:

  • When inhaled in high concentrations, oxygen induces dizziness, light-headedness, dangerous behavior, and disorientation.
  • In the presence of materials containing carbon, oxygen is highly combustible, and can produce dangerous explosions.
  • Oxygen is responsible for widespread and continuous deterioration of important infrastructure through the process of rust and corrosion, often leading to failure and deaths.

    oh, and water too, don’t forget water. Both vapour and the even more perilous liquid form, not to mention the dangers of its solid state. Nitrogen seems pretty benign – we should promote that, I think.
