Duct Tape and Room Furnace Vents

My room was originally two rooms. Long story. What it has done is give my room a direct vent to the furnace/AC and one of the furnace/AC vents. This leaves my room twice affected by the furnace/AC, making it a little too warm in winter and a little too cold in summer. I have tried to close the vent, but the vent is old and rusted, and will not close to any noticeable degree. My mother has suggested covering the vent with duct tape.

Now for the question. Would the warm air running along the glue on the sticky side of the duct tape for a long while generate any health problems? I've searched Google and only found "using heat to remove duct tape glue" sites, a little too short-term for my tastes.

ETA: Said vent is on the ceiling, in case that affects some people's answers.
