Here's something the climate alarmists don't want you to know.
A Greenpeace co-founder and former CEO, Patrick Moore, says burning of fossil fuels saved life on Earth “from an early demise” by returning carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.
Moore appeared on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight earlier this week and said:
Over the millennia, they just ignore deep history, these people, they talk about the last 100 years as if that’s when the world started, but the deep history going back millions of years and even hundreds of millions of years shows us that carbon dioxide has gradually diminished in the atmosphere and in the oceans because it’s been lost to the sediments on land and in the seas.
During the last glaciation, which was only 20,000 years ago, CO2 sank to a level which was close to a level of causing death to plants, so low. Inadvertently, by starting to use fossil fuels, we have actually saved life from an early demise, because CO2 is the food for all of life.
He also explained how labeling of carbon dioxide as a pollutant is “the biggest abomination that’s been made against science in a long time”.
This is in direct contradiction with everything Al Gore and Barack Obama told us about carbon dioxide. Of course, they're both politicians, not scientists.
It’s not pollution. That’s why the finding on CO2 by the EPA under Obama is such an important thing to reverse because when they found that CO2, when they ruled that CO2 was pollution, they made the biggest abomination that’s been made against science in a long time, because CO2 is, in fact, the food for life.
It is what life is based on. Life is carbon-based. The carbon in all life came from CO2 in the atmosphere and the oceans. Nowhere else did it come from. That’s a fact. Nobody disputes that, yet they claim that because we’re putting more CO2 into the atmosphere — where it actually came from in the first place — the carbon in fossil fuels was made from life, made from plants and plankton in the land and sea, that carbon in the fossil fuels used to be in the air and in the ocean, and it got sucked up and lost to the sediments and was therefore no longer in the air.
We’re just putting it back where it was in the first place, when life flourished during the greenhouse eras that went back for hundreds of millions of years when the Earth was far warmer than it is today.
Moore also pointed out that carbon is an element and carbon dioxide is gas. The Left doesn't understand any of this stuff.
Well done, Breitbart team.
