CO2 Good for Us? #0092 Life & Liberty
Is Carbon Dioxide actually good for the planet?
Well, remember that chart of the oxygen/CO2 cycle between plants and animals, from your grade school science textbook?
According to that, CO2 is good for plants, which is good for agriculture, which is good….for us.
Listen in to my short audio on Carbon Dioxide, recorded today in Rotterdam. Click on the box below…
I read a landmark study, reported in the Wall Street Journal, on this topic which you can see by clicking on HERE.
And in the quest for fairness, I have included an opposing view (how many climate change enthusiasts do that?) which you can read by clicking on HERE.
“Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.
The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present – and is gravely to be regarded.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.”
-Dwight D. Eisenhower, at the end of his presidency. 1961
