Long term readers of this blog know that I typically don't recommend panic nor government intervention, but I think this substance warrants it, just look at the many harmful effects of DHMO (DiHydrogen MonOxide) !
- Death due to accidental inhalation, even in small quantities.
- Prolonged exposure to solid form causes severe skin burns.
- DHMO is a major component of acid rain.
- Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns
- Corrodes and oxidizes metals, leading to many mechanical / infrastructure failures
- Causes electrical failures
If you want to research it more, you might want to use H2O or "water" in your search, but with these sorts of known negative effects, it seems only right that it should join CO2 on the EPA list of hazardous compounds!
After all, the main claim for the CO2 inclusion is that it is predicted to cause a couple degrees more warmth in 100 years (no luck for the past 18 years ;-( ) , something that seems less negative in January than drowning, frostbite, or even having a bridge fall down!
