In fact, it’s just third grade science, the time when kids start learning about photosynthesis.
CO2 is not a pollutant. It’s a NUTRIENT! This is why growers buy CO2 GENERATORS for their greenhouses — they maximize growth!
Carbon dioxide is one of the essential ingredients in green plant growth and is a primary environmental factor in greenhouses.
Plants benefit most from CO2 when the PPM (parts per million) of CO2 in the air is between 1000 and 1500. Ambient PPM of CO2 is usually about 300 PPM.
Any elementary school student who paid attention during the lessons on photosynthesis would know that Al Gore’s “inconvenient truth” is really Al Gore’s Big Fat Lie. Why the teachers don’t is the question.
The fact that schools show “An Inconvenient Truth” to the same kids who are learning about photosynthesis reminds me a lot of another of the Left’s bizarre educational oxymorons — i.e., the kids who study the wonders of human fetal development are also taught that abortion just removes “an undifferentiated clump of cells.”
You gotta watch this one!
“The Earth knows how to save itself.”
Climate activists want to make the vast majority of fossil fuel use illegal. To justify this poverty-inducing plan, they repeat the lie that 97% of climate scientists agree with them.
TRUE: Climate scientists DO agree that there has been a global warming trend over the past 150 years. Some of them even concede that human beings have contributed to it.
HOWEVER, the warming trend has been tiny (0.8 degrees C), it started before the rise of man-made CO2, and it has abated in recent years even as CO2 levels have continued to rise.
LIE: The “97% of climate scientists believe we should restrict fossil fuels” lie was invented by a guy who wants to limit fossil fuel use. He did it by cherry picking a bunch of climate papers and falsely reporting that 97% of them agreed with him.
According to the article linked below, far from going full on Al Gore about fossil fuel use, only a relative handful of the cherry picked papers even endorse the view that human emissions of greenhouse gases are more than 50% responsible for the small amount of warming we’ve seen over the past 150 years.
The author quotes one of the scientists whose papers were included in the bogus survey. He reported that only 10 of his 122 eligible papers had been included, nine of which were rated incorrectly as to what he really said.
It’s practically a point of dogma among evolutionary biologists that life evolved from the simple to the complex.
Unfortunately for them, the advent of rapid, accurate, and inexpensive DNA sequencing technology in the early 2000s is busting their dogma to smithereens.
It seems that plant-like sea anemones have more genes than insects and amoebas have 200 times more DNA than humans!
A team of scientists has tied the normal cycle of climate changes in part to small changes in the orbits of Earth and Mars.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson hosted a California college professor, Joseph Palermo, who wrote a Huffington Post op-ed in which he argued that Trump’s administration shouldn’t be allowed to use Twitter since they believed “the science of global warming is bogus.”
In the article, Dr. Palermo claimed that 98% of scientists believe in the science behind extreme climate change scenarios.
During the interview, Carlson pressed Palermo for a source for his 98% claim.
“How do you know that? Are you a scientist or have you polled other scientists? Where’d you get that figure?”
Palermo wouldn’t or couldn’t answer the question.
Daily Caller suggested that Palermo was likely referring to an oft-touted 2013 study by Australian researcher John Cook.
Cook’s study has been thoroughly debunked by experts who found the actual “consensus” is scarcely 0.3 percent.
Palermo has a Ph.D. from Cornell University in American History, with minor fields in Anthropology and Modern Latin America.
He has two M. A.s, one from Cornell in American History and one from San Jose State University in History. His B.A. is from the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he doubled majored in Sociology and Anthropology.
He currently teaches history at Sacramento State, where his bio lists his specialization as “U.S., twentieth-century politics.”
Notably missing from his academic and work history is any sniff or whiff that he ever studied any hard science at all, much less that he majored in or has worked in the fields of climatology or meteorology.
