CO2 – Planet Destroyer Or Creator Of Life?

I had the pleasure and honor of moderating a very distinguished panel at CPAC sponsored by the CO2 Coalition, with Dr. Craig Idso of CO2 Science and Kathleen Hartnett White of the Texas Public Policy Foundation. Kathleen formerly served as head of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the second largest environmental regulatory organization in the world after the EPA.

We have all heard about the benefits of CO2 to life, society and public policy, but Craig and Kathleen documented this in a very organized fashion and in great detail. Craig pointed out that we would be having a difficult time feeding seven billion people without the increase in CO2. Well worth ninety minutes of your time!

You can watch it on Facebook here.

I got to spend time with both of the speakers – wonderful people and fountains of knowledge about the environment.

    CO2 is the Creator of Life

    Thank you for your very excellent slide show presentation. Going through those bullet point illustrations one by one hammers home what is going on.

    Like everyone else in the world I don’t have time to do everything, and your presentation is the only one I sat and watched all the way through. I wished it would have continued to cover all the other “Climate Change” issues that have been manipulated and propagandized over the last 30+ years.

    This Communist Core Anti-Biology crap has got to stop. I remember being at a baseball game with friends about twenty years ago, and an old friend I had not seen in a few years asked me about Global Warming because he knew that I had been a climatology student, and that I had kept up with the latest findings. I started to explain that CO2 is prmarily plant food, and suddenly my best friend went off on me for saying that.

    Needless to say that all of my friends and family are firm skeptics now, as I started feeding them the actual scientific findings, and not the hype. But even the vast majority of true believers are turned off by the alarmists, once they see the cost in human suffering and death caused by the CAGWBS cult.

    Chlorophyll: – C₅₅H₇₂O₅N₄Mg

    Lignins, Amino acid, Anthocyanin, fatty acids, amino acids, esters.

    ALL are based on ORGANIC chemistry, with minor atoms of nitrogen, magnesium, potassium, sodium etc etc etc

    But BY FAR the major structures are CARBON, OXYGEN and HYDROGEN

    The whole world is absolutely and totally dependent on those three atoms which are invariably sourced from CO₂ and H₂O

      I love the way some idiots try to say the carbon that plants use is FROM THE SOIL!

      What the heck are they teaching biology in high schools these days??

          HELLO Communist GOALS

          Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963

          17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
          22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

          23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. <b."Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

          24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

          25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

          26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

          27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

          28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

          31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

          39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

          40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

          41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

          42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems. […]

          • Kris Johanson says:

            Hey, you got that off my Facebook page! Yes, the modern communists (the global Left) certainly have control of the schools. I would not want to be a public school teacher nowadays.

        • Gail Combs says:

          The last commie goal is interesting.

          “45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.”

          It is interesting to me that one of the communist goals of 1958 was to “Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.” More about communist goals will be posted in a few days (October 6, 2011) [….]

          “Before ratifying the United Nations Charter in 1945, the Senate was wise enough to amend the section dealing with the World Court by barring the Court from jurisdiction over matters which were essentially domestic “AS DETERMINED BY THE UNITED STATES.” Those six words, authored by Senator Tom Connally (D-Tex), are known as the `Connally Reservation” and are the only thing which COULD prevent the World Court from interfering in American internal affairs on the pretext that our tariffs, immigration laws, school curriculums, etc. affect American relations with other countries and are therefore `foreign’ and not `domestic.’ Very powerful interests in Washington have been trying to get that `Connally Reservation’ repealed ever since.” [….]

          I was very curious to learn which of our Presidents desired the Connelly Reservation to be repealed so I started doing some research on the matter. I found the following information under the date of Monday, September 5, 1960, at

          “Through Washington this week spanged the opening shots of a battle over whether or not the U.S. will work wholeheartedly to help develop a world rule of law. The battleground was the 83rd annual meeting of the American Bar Association. Drawn up on one side were the forces that want the U.S. to lead in establishing a workable system of international law, on the other a determined rear guard that is ready to fight tooth-and-nail to halt a necessary practical step. Point at issue is the so-called Connally Reservation, by which the U.S. reserves the right to label any international dispute involving itself as a `domestic’ issue and thus escape jurisdiction by the World Court at The Hague. The reservation was highballed through the Senate by Texas’ Tom Connally in 1946. The following year the A.B.A resoundingly urged its repeal on grounds that the Connally Reservation, rather than protecting the U.S., would cripple the workings of the World Court to the eventual detriment of U.S. interests. A bipartisan campaign to repeal the Connally Reservation has won the backing of President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, Secretary of State Herter, Attorney General William Rogers, Democratic Senators Hubert Humphrey, J. William Fulbright and John Kennedy. It may pass the Senate next year. [….]

          Three Presidents of the United States were listed in that paragraph – Eisenhower, Nixon, and Kennedy. I tried to find something definite on more recent Presidents, but couldn’t.

          I am very sure they wished they had been able to repeal the Connally reservation so the World Court could award the presidency to Hilderbeast and try Climate Sceptics as enemies of humanity.

            I think it’s becoming more and more evident that on November 8th we were narrowly snatched from complete disaster (the U.S. that is…)

      Cellulose: (C6H10O5)n

      Trees are made of air. Who knew? You burn wood you are just putting the molecules back into the atmosphere. You tell people that trees are made of air and they just freak out. It’s sort of fun to watch. I had a state park ranger almost go ballistic on me one time when I told him that the kids picking up sticks off of the ground and throwing them into the fire were just returning the air molecules back to the air. Poor guy.

      • Gail Combs says:

        AND Coal is made of air too. ?

        The Carboniferous Period is famous for its vast swamp forests, such as the one depicted here. Such swamps produced the coal from which the term Carboniferous, or “carbon-bearing,” is derived. The Carboniferous Period lasted from about 359.2 to 299 million years ago* during the late Paleozoic Era.
        The Carboniferous Period

        Note how the CO2 was sucked out of the atmosphere during the Carboniferous Period. And how life gradually lower CO2 levels before that. The appearance of the white rot fungus, Fomitiporia ended the sequestering of carbon as coal and saved our butts by allowing CO2 to return to the air. link

    Yep, no one ever discusses the benefits of CO2, or the harmful costs of a the green agenda. It is always a one sided story. Here is the other side.
    Climate “Science” on Trial; Clear-Cutting Forests to Save the Trees

    • Kris Johanson says:

      That’s a good piece & you make many good points.

      I think no one ever discusses the benefits of oil-derived fuels & the unintended consequences of the Green agenda because 1) most people don’t know the facts, i.e. they don’t know the difference between CO and CO2, so they are going off emotion….. largely because 2) all public school science textbooks are one-sided and that’s the sum total of exposure for most people

  5. Gail Combs says:

    I liked your panel, with James and Steve, better Tony although this was a good set of presentations.

  6. Eric Simpson says:

    “Craig pointed out that we would be having a difficult time feeding seven billion people without the increase in CO2.”

    “A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer.” -Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University Ecoactivist

    With CO2’s positive impact on agricultural yields you’d think if the greens were actually serious about killing off billions of humans they’d be calling for dramatic reductions in CO2 emissions.

    Wait, that’s just what they are doing. Never mind!

    Is this discussion available other than on FB? My PCs don’t do Facebook, and never will.

  8. Gail Combs says:

    Rightside broadcasting may have it
    LOOK here:
    DAY One

    DAY two

    DAY three

    On the right are individual panels.

    One of interest:
