Gore Backlash: Why Environmentalists Are Celebrating Rising CO2 Levels
Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
goodness carbon dioxide levels are finally rising ever so slightly in our
atmosphere, bringing much-needed carbon dioxide to the plants and forests
of the world which have been starving for CO2. The lack
of CO2 in the atmosphere is one of the most devastating limiting factors
for plant growth and reforestation of the planet, and at just 400ppm --
that's just 400 micrograms per kilogram -- carbon dioxide is so low that
Earth's plant life can barely breathe.
note: I have added substantially to this story since it was first published
in order to attempt to educate what appear to be a mass of brainwashed,
mathematically illiterate commenters on Facebook who demonstrate a wholesale
inability to process information with anything resembling rationality on
me clarify three things before we even get into the story:
- NO, I do not support the coal and oil industry, and in fact I think they
are terrible polluters of our planet for lots of reasons that have nothing
to do with CO2. As it turns out, all the coal and oil being burned across
our world right now only slightly impacts CO2 levels, especially when compared
with CO2 emissions by ocean life. So my support of CO2 as an essential plant
nutrient in no way is any kind of endorsement of the oil and coal industries.
My long track record of activism against corporate monopolists is irrefutably
- YES, CO2 is an essential plant nutrient. Despite all the idiotic beliefs
of people who have been brainwashed by Al Gore into believing scientific
mythologies, higher CO2 levels support faster plant growth and the
re-greening of our planet, period! Anyone who disagrees with this
is flatly uninformed, brainwashed or just plain ignorant of plant biology
(and that's a lot of people). Recent science is proving that rising CO2
levels are, in fact, expanding plant growth and reforestation around the
world. Read Increase in Carbon Dioxide Levels "Greening" the Deserts
at NatureWorldNews.com or read the press release from the original researchers
out of Australia who documented this correlation. And everybody needs to
- The current level of CO2 in Earth's atmosphere is 400ppm. By comparison,
Oxygen exists in the atmosphere at 210,000ppm. When you
exhale, your own breath contains 40,000ppm of CO2, and if you know anything
about emergency first aid, then you know that breathing this 40,000ppm of
CO2 into another person's body (mouth-to-mouth resuscitation) is a lifesaving
action. It's not uncommon for CO2 to
reach levels of 3000ppm in homes, schools and offices. OSHA allows workers
to work in environments with up to 5000ppm of CO2. (Because, again, oxygen
is present at 210,000ppm, vastly out-weighing the CO2.)
all this talk of carbon dioxide threatening the entire planet at just 400ppm
-- less than one-half of 1/1000th of the air -- is pure nonsense. Total
quack science fearmongering.
fact, most of what we've all been told about CO2 over the pat few years
is a complete lie. It's time to stop believing these lies and wake up to
reality. Most importantly, stop defending the CO2 / global warming hoax.
Yes, CO2 is rising, but it's mostly from non-human activity, and rising
levels actually support forests and plants everywhere.
did I "wake up" to this information? It's simple: I used to be
a believer in the CO2 hoax until I really began to study plant physiology
and aquaponics production. Only then did I discover that CO2 is a
vital nutrient for plant growth and that levels of CO2 in the atmosphere
were radically deficient for optimal reforestation and plant biology. My
awakening to this in no way means I endorse coal or oil industries, both
of which are dirty polluters of the planet. But I am no longer allowing
myself to be conned by the likes of Al Gore who has successfully convinced
far too many people that their own breath is a global pollutant that needs
to be regulated and taxed.
CO2 scam is nothing more than a global tax moneymaking scheme being
pushed by people who hope to get rich off our collective guilt for a problem
that's entirely fabricated and fictional.
original story continues here:
the history of our planet, atmospheric CO2 was much, much higher, and it
supported eras of lush rainforests, rapid plant growth and far greater biodiversity
than what we see today. In fact, 525 million years ago, Earth's atmospheric
CO2 levels were as high at 7,000 ppm -- and far from the
planet "dying" as global warming hoax pushers try to claim, it
was one of the most lush and biodiverse times in our planet's history.
following chart clearly shows, CO2 levels are at one of their lowest levels
in the history of our planet:
dioxide is greening the planet
warming alarmists and hoaxers, of course, have warned that CO2 levels crossing
the threshold of 400ppm will spell certain doom for the human race. What
they don't mention is that rising CO2 levels actually set off a "global
greening," complete with forests re-growing at an accelerated rate,
gardens producing more food and arid regions seeing a restoration of green
study refers to CO2 as a "fertilizer" that causes a "fertilization
effect." As the study authors explain:
results confirm that the anticipated CO2 fertilization effect is occurring
alongside ongoing anthropogenic perturbations to the carbon cycle and that
the fertilisation effect is now a significant land surface process.
you see, isn't a "pollutant." It's a nutrient!
way, your body is 18% carbon and 65% oxygen. (I'm going to pre-empt some
stupid Facebook trolls who will say, "Not true! Your body is 75% water!"
by answering in advance that H2O is made of hydrogen and oxygen. Hydrogen
has such a low atomic weight, however, that it doesn't contribute more than
about 10% to your total body mass. Then again, trying to teach science to
you are 83% made of the same stuff as CO2, just in a different molecular
arrangement. CO2 is, of course, constantly reformed and recycled throughout
the planetary ecosystem.
Ocean biological activity alone produces 90 billion tons of CO2 each year
-- many multiples of the far smaller amount produced by human activity (about
6 billion tons). If CO2 alone caused global warming and global death, we'd
all be dead by now. It turns out that CO2 actually helps fertilize the growth
and restoration of plants and forests!
plants love carbon dioxide, too!
way, it's not just land plants that are starving for CO2. Marine plants
also need more CO2, and most marine biology came into being in a time when
CO2 levels were far higher than they are today.
higher CO2 levels are in the atmosphere, the more CO2 gets absorbed into
ocean water, making it available to help marine plants thrive. This CO2,
importantly, is also used to build coral reefs.
a second! Haven't we all been told that CO2 is destroying coral reefs? I
used to think so, too, because I hadn't scrutinized the science closely
enough. But if you really dig into this issue, it turns out that coral reefs
are largely being destroyed by toxic chemical runoff from human activity,
not from CO2.
you love plants and forests and gardens, you gotta love CO2
bottom line in all this is that if you love plant life on planet Earth,
you've gotta love carbon dioxide. CO2 is the key nutrient that's needed
to bolster the rapid growth of nearly all plants, and right now Earth's
atmosphere is in a state of carbon dioxide deficiency.
CO2 levels are a huge benefit to plant life across the planet. Hare-brained
plans to "sequester" CO2 will cause an artificial reduction in
this crucial plant nutrient, resulting in the mass global die-off of plants
and the thinning of forests. Carbon sequestration is, quite literally, plant
starvation and an attack against Mother Nature.
buy into the disinfo hawked by CO2 alarmists like Al Gore. They are pushing
an utterly fictional story about how "CO2 will destroy the world"
and end human civilization if we don't stop its rise. I welcome
rising CO2 levels and being scientifically trained, I know that
carbon dioxide only exists at less than 1/1000th of the atmosphere. In fact,
it's currently at less than half of 1/1000th of the atmosphere.
That's an extremely small amount of CO2 -- just 400ppm. And it's just barely
enough to keep Earth's plants from dying en masse.
CO2 is an essential plant nutrient that accelerates the growth of plants,
gardens and forests.
CO2 is present in the atmosphere at just 400 ppm. By comparison, oxygen
is present at 210,000 ppm. There is barely any CO2 in the atmosphere at
Higher CO2 levels means better reforestation and "greening" of
the planet. As CO2 levels rise, barren regions are able to "re-green"
with trees that couldn't grow there before.
CO2 is chronically deficient in the atmosphere today; many plants are "starving"
for carbon dioxide.
NO, I do not support the oil and gas industries. In fact, there is hardly
any link between energy usage and the rise of CO2 in the atmosphere. The
vast majority of CO2 emissions come from biology, not burning fossil fuels.
