Why Environmentalists Are Celebrating Rising Co2 Levels

Recommended Posts

Thank 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.

Throughout 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.

As the following chart clearly shows, CO2 levels are at one of their lowest levels in the history of our planet:

Global 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 plants.

In fact, a study just published in Geophysical Research Letters has documented that a 14% increase in CO2 levels in the atmosphere gave rise to a 5% - 10% increase in green foliage, with a total increase in plant "cover" of 11%. That study is entitled, CO2 fertilisation has increased maximum foliage cover across the globe's warm, arid environments.

That study refers to CO2 as a "fertilizer" that causes a "fertilization effect." As the study authors explain:

Our 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.[...]

The NWO CO2 hoax is fast losing it's credibility even among 'environmentalists'... B)

They should ban dihydrogenoxide....terrible stuff.

yeah but were not plants are we.

rising c02 and 3-4 degrees higher temperatures is great for plants, but rising sea levels are bad for humans because weve built massive cities on the coasts.

flooding is usually great for the land but again not good for humans. if you take humans out of the equation climate change wouldnt be a problem.

WTF?

Let me put that another way.

No, I'll just repeat the question. WTF?

Can't disagree that CO2 levels have fluctuated.

It's not just gaseous change however, as the Triassic-Jurassic boundary may suggest temperature is important for plants, as might be expected.

Likewise other extinction events, such as the most dramatic known of them all, the End-Permian mass extinction, which may also reveal examples of the causes and consequences. Here is a summary for the end-Permian warming as the 'consequences' article is behind a paywall and its abstract is brief.

Glad to see you bravely crusading for the poor oppressed oil and coal companies against the legions of wealthy environmentalists who have practically shut down the oil and coal industries worldwide, as demonstrated:

Do you regard that website as a credible source? Maybe it is, but the ads on it really don't give it a very serious feel.

I think it's well known that I'm no proponent of global warming, but that piece sent my bullshitometer off the scale. Hence my earlier incredulity.

Seriously though, what is going on with this stuff?

What happened to the warming? What happened the sea rising? What happened to climate emigration?

Wasn't there meant to be a positive feedback loop that would have fried us all by now?

Instead, the 'weather' has been a bit rubbish. There seems to be a few more freak events around the world, but I wonder, if, much like crime, this is more a symptom of 24hr global news than a real change.

There's plenty of "foliage" growing up through cracks in the pavement at Castle Pin!
