How Much CO2? Polar Ice?


Polar ice, for example, has been present on the Earth for less than 20 per cent of geological time, Plimer writes. Plus, animal extinctions are an entirely normal part of the Earth's evolution. …

Plimer gets especially upset about carbon dioxide, its role in Earth's daily life and the supposed effects on climate of human manufacture of the gas. He says atmospheric carbon dioxide is now at the lowest levels it has been for 500 million years, and that atmospheric carbon dioxide is only 0.001 per cent of the total amount of the chemical held in the oceans, surface rocks, soils and various life forms. Indeed, Plimer says carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, but a plant food. Plants eat carbon dioxide and excrete oxygen.

Since those are facts, they are useless to the Cap-n-Tax crowd.

And this guy is a devout evolutionist who is known to protest creationists in every way, shape and form. Considering this typically leftist view, you would think that he would have credibility with the loons. However, he does dare to mock their most holy and sacred religion. How dare he.
