It does go a bit deeper. We even have to track compressed gases like oxygen and breathing quality air for emission reports. :shk:
The CO2 bit is getting out of hand, though.
This is getting beyond ridiculous. How in the world they propose to separate and track "industrial" gases and naturally occuring gases is beyond me.
The task is difficult now, but they are going to make it damn near impossible. These gases are naturally occuring and if they think that taxing the "industrial" emittors is going to help anything, they are sadly mistaken.
