M'm! M'm! Good

The Federal Environmental Protection Agency has done it again, folks. The EPA foiled an attempt by the Campbell Soup Company to make its employees happy while they work. Apparently, for five whole days, Campbell’s nitrogen oxide emission levels at its Stockton, California tomato-processing plant violated provisions of the Clean Air Act. Nitrogen oxide is really a misnomer in that nitrogen has six oxides, including nitrous oxide (N2O), or more commonly known as laughing gas. The EPA, however, wasn’t laughing, and instead filed a complaint requesting monetary sanctions up to $200,000 be assessed against the famous soup-maker. It seems that nitrous oxide, like the other nitrogen oxides, is a greenhouse gas that absorbs and traps radiant energy. You know . . . , the global warming thing. Well, at least now I know why the people in Stockton were always so pleasant as I passed through on my way to Sacramento.
