World Sustain-Ability And You : Carbon Taxing Your Breaths!
- average amount of carbon dioxide exhaled (once!)
=
0.037 grams

- average amount of breaths taken in a single human lifetime
=
672,768,000 breaths

- current number of inhabitants in the U.S.A.
=
313,690,257 humans

So, let's take 0.037 * 672,768,000 * 313,690,257
=
7,808,508,372,390,912 grams of co2
or
8,607,000,000 U.S. Tons of co2

You are probably wondering what's up with the math, well from this you can measure the monetary gain from co2 taxes at a rate of 50 cents for every ton of co2 belched out for 313,690,257 lifetimes.

8,607,000,000 * .50
=
4,303,500,000 cents
or
43,035,000 U.S. Dollars

Congradulations, the current U.S. citizens will have paid
43,035,000 to the federal government just from breathing!
Goodbye, and as always, GO GREEN! you socialist pricks.

Re: World Sustain-Ability And You : Carbon Taxing Your Breaths!
you'd be better off taxing oxygen, since it is metabolized with sugars in the body to do work & in the process, generate heat which contributes to global warming.
One of it's metabolic products is CO2.

Politicians need to watch out, since they consume more oxygen & thus generate more heat & CO2 than ordinary people.
They should really be gagged & put on ice for the benefit of the planet. (notice I didn't say 'mankind' because that would be selfish & non-PC)
