CO2 Is Not a Pollutant
Joseph D’Aleo, CCM
This article is one of a series that counters the Green Agenda by presenting facts about the climate.
Government agencies, energy companies, auto and major corporations are increasing their support of de-carbonization programs and policies (including taxes, mandated reduction of the use of fossil fuels and promoting not ready for prime time alternatives).
This has proved to be a disaster where this unwise radical agenda has been imposed.
CO2 IS NOT A POLLUTANT BUT RATHER THE GAS OF LIFE
CO2 is a beneficial trace gas (0.04% of our atmosphere). With every breath we emit out 100 times more CO2 than we breathe in so it is not harmful. The increase in CO2 has caused a significant greening of the earth, with increased crop yields feeding more people at lower cost.
Greenhouses pump CO2 in to make the plants you buy more vigorous, healthy and attractive.
Dr. Craig Idso of CO2 Science noted recently “Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant and it is most certainly not causing dangerous global warming. Rather, its increase in the atmosphere is invigorating the biosphere, producing a multitude of benefits for humanity and the natural world, notwithstanding the prognostications of the uninformed.” See this video.
Dr. Will Happer, Princeton Physicist says we are coming out of a CO2 drought and humanity would benefit from CO2 being 2 to 3 times higher. See this interview.
Dr. Patrick Moore, ecologist and co-founder of Greenpeace says we are coming out of a CO2 drought and humanity would benefit from CO2 being 2 to 3 times higher. See this interview.
CO2 is a byproduct of breathing and it’s beneficial to plant life. It’s a good thing.
