What are some of the dangers associated with DHMO?
Each year, Dihydrogen Monoxide is a known causative component in many thousands of deaths and is a major contributor to millions upon millions of dollars in damage to property and the environment. Some of the known perils of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:
* Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.
* Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
* Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.
* DHMO is a major component of acid rain.
* Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.
* Contributes to soil erosion.
* Leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals.
* Contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits.
* Exposure decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.
* Found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.
* Given to vicious dogs involved in recent deadly attacks.
* Often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere, and in hurricanes including deadly storms in Florida, New Orleans and other areas of the southeastern U.S.
* Thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect.
Basically the case could be (insert state not involved in original suit) ______ vs the EPA on the grounds that injury has been caused by regulation of a naturally occurring element.
It's is far from a done deal. Like I said that is why the Obama admin wants to pass cap and trade bill, because then it will be in law and there are no constitutional grounds to contest it on, and also grows government bigger. Whereas with the EPA there are multiple ways to bring back the lawsuit.
Not to mention now that the leaked documents are in the public domain they can be entered into evidence. It is a long way away from being a done deal.

I am from Canada and I have a question for americans: Why do the Usa always seem to need an ennemy, communist, terrorist and now a war on co2? I would like to have an answer because I dont understand that ideology.
It would be a mistake to presume that any ruling made by SCOTUS is an inextricable law that in effect becomes a fixture of stare decisis and can not be overturned, even by the very same Court that made the ruling decided in Massachusetts v. Environmental Protection Agency, 549 U.S. 497 (2007). Indeed, The Bush administrations assertion that it would ignore the Supreme Courts ruling in the event it ruled against them only serves to illustrate the dubious effect a Supreme Court ruling has in such matters.
Of course the EPA has the authority to regulate and enforce those regulations, but that does not mean they can go around and regulate anything they deem to be a threat. There is limits to their authority, and the regulation of CO2 can be argued that is overstepping their bounds because there is no scientific evidence to support the reason for them to regulate CO2.
What I don't think you understand is that the EPA can be taken to court in light of new evidence against ANY regulation that they have in place. If new evidence surfaces that proves their "reasonable" excuse is no longer reasonable, then they have no authority to enforce that regulation.
Again that is why Obama wants to pass Cap and Trade because then the only way for the law to be overturned is for the Supreme Court to find that the law is unconstitutional. The EPA backdoor regulation of CO2 is fragile and weak. Now as I said with the evidence that surfaced from CRU that the science has been cooked, that gives the people bringing suit against the EPA to force James Hansan to release all data, code, and methods to prove beyond a doubt that CO2 is actually a threat.
