    Just over 100 years ago asthma was induced by wood and coal emissions and horse manure.

    The treatment was to move to the countryside.

    Arizona was once a popular destination for asthmatics because the dry, desert climate was particularly low in pollen and other particulate matter.

    Asthma's been around almost as long as man.

    Everybody knows air pollution -- or for that matter, any other irritant in the air, such as pollen or dust -- can cause asthma attacks. What we refuse to accept is your depiction of coal-fired generators as pollution emitters of the type that idiotic picture you posted was supposed to "prove."

    You don't deal in facts, you deal in emotion, and if you can't generate emotion with rationale, you lie. And yes, exaggeration, obfuscation and omission of the whole true are all the same things as lies. It's the same problem with all liberals. You're more sold out to establishing your ideology as the rule of the land than you are in actually pursuing cooperation, compromise and reason. Your answers for everything from defense, to drug laws, to entitlements is bigger government.

    Overregulation is bankrupting. You cannot legislate good health, good economics, good work environment, good ethics. At some point you have to trust people to be basically good. And you do that not by regulating them, but by educating them in God's word.

    Yes asthma has been around as long as mankind has been on earth. The last time I worked in China 25% of all deaths were related to lung diseases. It is worse in areas where the air pollution is highest. Here is a quote from a recent issue of The Atlantic:
