Greenpeace Co Founder CO2 Is Essential To Life On Earth
Posted by Tory Aardvark
The whole premise of Anthropogenic Global Warming is based on the erroneous hypothesis that CO2 is a climate driver, and that as the concentration of atmospheric CO2 rose so global temperatures would increase by anything from 2 – 9 degrees Centigrade.
Since 1988 there has been no warming, despite what the Greens describe as obscene increases in CO2 emissions, global temperatures have stubbornly refused to rise.
The warmists and their junk scientists have been at a loss to explain where all the warming they predicted has gone, various ideas have been floated, the most desperate being that the deep oceans had absorbed all the heat and this would cause ocean acidification, and total wipeout of the coral reefs. Well it was something like that, the environmentalists have changed the story so many times to fit their junk science fear scenarios, it can be difficult to keep up with the latest spin.
In the last year a number of once devout members of the Church of Climatology have broken ranks and openly criticised the junk science and WWF hijacked agenda of the IPCC, and the warming alarmists in general.
In Germany Fritz Vahrenholt’s book The Cold Sun: Why The Climate Catastrophe Won’t Happen seriously upset the warming alarmists who immediately launched a smear and hate campaign, which did little to dissuade the German public who bought the book as fast as it could be printed.
In January Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore blasted wind farms as a destroyer of wealth and then criticised the organisation he helped found as not basing its position on science.
The warming alarmist propaganda machine has produced a new study trying to explain the lack of their predicted warming:
The new study claims: ‘Abrupt increase’ in CO2 absorption slowed global warming: Excerpt: ‘The earth would have warmed faster in the last two decades had there not been an unexplained rise in the amount of carbon dioxide being absorbed on land, scientists believe.” Scientists have discovered an “abrupt increase” since 1988 in the uptake of carbon dioxide (CO2) by the land biosphere, which comprises all of the planet’s plant and animal ecosystems…the breakthrough had taken scientists “completely by surprise”…[study] explains how much CO2 is absorbed by plants and animals, with some of the CO2 then being passed from plants into the land.” [End study excerpt]
Patrick Moore’s comments on this new study will certainly not make him popular with the Greens:
Ecologist Dr. Moore pulled no punches in commenting on the new study: “These people are either completely naive about the relationship between CO2 and plants or they are making this up as a way of deflecting attention from the lack of warming for the past 15 years.” Moore is the author of the book, “Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout: The Making of a Sensible Environmentalist,” in which he exposes the green movement and explains why he left the organization.
Moore then criticised the so called science of Climate Change and those complicit in trying to keep scam alive:
Moore told Climate Depot: “Plants grow much faster when CO2 is higher, the optimum concentration is between 1500-2000 ppm so there is a long way to go before plants are happy. CO2 levels in the atmosphere have continued to rise despite plants absorbing more CO2. So what is the ‘scientists’ point? It is to obfuscate, confuse, and otherwise muddy the waters with disinformation.
So a former Green has noticed the antics of Hansen and all the other junk scientists tampering with data to prove themselves and their theory correct.
Moore continued: “We should challenge them to admit that CO2 is the most important nutrient for all life on earth and to admit that it is proven in lab and field experiments that plants would grow much faster if CO2 levels were 4-5 times higher in the atmosphere than they are today. This is why greenhouse growers pipe the exhaust from their gas and wood heaters back into the greenhouse to increase CO2 levels 3-5 times the level in the atmosphere, resulting in 50-100% increase in growth of their crops. And they should recognize that CO2 is lower today than it has been through most of the history of life on earth.
“There is no ‘abrupt’ increase in CO2 absorption, it is gradual as CO2 levels rise and plants become less stressed by low CO2 levels. At 150 ppm CO2 all plants would die, resulting in virtual end of life on earth.
Patrick Moore may actually be correct in the title of his book, he is possibly the first sensible environmentalist that has appeared in the last 25 years, the jury is still out on that one, but there is good reason to be cautiously optimistic on Moore’s stance thus far.
