The next time someone tells you that we all must reduce our “carbon footprint” to save the planet from “climate change,” be sure to remind that person that carbon dioxide (CO2) is the elixir of life.
Without CO2, all plant life would die – which means all humans and animals would die. CO2 is plant food, after all, facilitating photosynthesis and the life cycle itself.
Removing CO2 from the planet like the climate cultists demand would render the entire world barren of life. It would quickly become a wasteland marked with death and destruction and certainly not be a paradise.
For the past several years, the corporate-controlled media, leftist politicians, and Church of Global Warming members have been telling us that CO2 is a “pollutant.” But, unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. (Related: CO2 has absolutely nothing to do with global temperatures.)
“CO2 emissions from industrial processes of the last two centuries have been highly beneficial to plant growth,” writes Vijay Jayaraj.
“Scientific studies show that CO2 has played a significant role in the re-greening of the earth after abnormally low CO2 levels had limited much of the planet’s vegetation due to CO2 starvation.”
The massive increase in food production over the past century, which allows for the feeding of eight billion people worldwide, would also not have been possible without CO2 – not to mention slightly warmer temperatures in some areas that are more suited for agriculture.
