Inconvenient Facts About Climate Change
Another great commentary by Philip V. Brennan

10 Jun 08 - “Lord what fools these mortals be," says Puck in Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

“Atmospheric levels of CO2, we are assured, have steadily risen to a dangerous extent, threatening to overheat the planet and mankind must therefore drastically reduce the amounts of this alleged greenhouse gas being thoughtless emitted by a thoughtless evil humanity.

“This is where it gets hilarious. Courts have ruled that instead of being a natural element essential to all life on the planet, CO2 is a pollutant, putting it on the level of the gook that pours out of factory smokestacks and thickens the air we breathe with throat choking emissions.

“Having swallowed that absurdity, the global warming juggernaut rolls on towards the goal of legislating a reduction of CO2 levels to prevent future global warming at the very moment when the world is rapidly entering a period of sustained cooling.

“Should their plans succeed and CO2 levels be drastically reduced, a genuine global disaster would inevitably follow because we need healthy levels of that essential gas to just to survive. It feeds the plant life that feeds us.

“…scientists Steven Running of the University of Montana and Ramakrishna Nemani of NASA, found that "over a period of almost two decades, the Earth as a whole became more bountiful by a whopping 6.2%. About 25% of the Earth's vegetated landmass — almost 110 million square kilometres — enjoyed significant increases and only 7% showed significant declines…each square metre of land, on average, now produces almost 500 grams of greenery per year."

“…CO2 is nature's fertilizer, bathing the biota with its life-giving nutrients…carbon is the building block of life. Moreover, the plants release oxygen, which along with the plants, then sustain animal life.

“What makes this even more hilarious is the fact that the period of global warming earth has experienced since the end of the little ice age is coming to a sudden halt.

“Governments around the world are now enacting massive programs in an effort to remove as much as 80% of the carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere."

That's not going green. It the browning of the earth and with it the specter of mass famine.

“Lord, what fools these mortals be. “
