The war on carbon dioxide (CO2) would seem to be kicking up a notch with new research suggesting that this ubiquitous “pollutant” is somehow going to destroy humanity, proving once again that the sciences have been all but completely co-opted by scientific illiteracy and absolute stupidity.
Hilariously, media reports, including from The Guardian, are joining in on this utter dumbness by claiming that CO2 in bedrooms, classrooms, and offices “might” have harmful effects on people’s bodies – even though one of the study’s coauthors, presumably in an attempt to minimize how stupid such a claim makes him and his colleagues look, admits that there’s not enough evidence “to be alarmed” about the presence of CO2.
He does, however, insist that the world has “no time to waste” in addressing the CO2 “crisis,” which to climate fanatics means eliminating everything that emits CO2 – including humans. Doing this would, of course, kill all plant life, which requires CO2 in order to live, but it supposedly must be done in order to stop “global warming” and “climate change.”
“Unless we decarbonize heating and transport then these peaks will worsen as the global background increases,” says “air pollution scientist” Dr. Gary Fuller from King’s College London about the impending “threat” of CO2.

Without CO2, the Earth would be an uninhabitable wasteland
Anyone who takes such tripe seriously lacks an even rudimentary understanding of the planetary life cycle – including the complicit mainstream media, which parrots this type of pseudoscientific nonsense ad nauseum as if it were scientific fact.
But the truth is that it’s not true, at all. CO2, as explained by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, is “a miraculous life-giving nutrient that plants need to thrive.”
“Rising carbon dioxide is actually helping ‘green’ the planet, as any legitimate scientist already knows,” Adams further explains. “Without CO2 in the atmosphere, nearly all life on the planet would collapse, including both human life and plant life.”
Far from being a “poison” or “pollutant,” CO2 functions as food for plants. Without it, there would be no plants, which would mean no oxygen for humans and other mammals to breathe – meaning everything and everyone would die.
“Plants need CO2, water, and daylight,” Adams further explains, citing statements made by István Markó, an organic chemistry researcher at the Université catholique de Louvain, during a recent interview about the importance of CO2.
“These are the mechanisms of photosynthesis, to generate the sugars that will provide them with staple food and building blocks. That fundamental fact of botany is one of the primary reasons why anyone who is sincerely committed to the preservation of the ‘natural world’ should abstain from demonizing CO2.”
While there’s some truth to the fact that CO2 levels have been gradually rising over the past several decades, what’s also true is that planetary vegetation has similarly increased by about 20 percent – which is good news for both humans and the environment.
“This expansion of vegetation on the planet, nature lovers largely owe it to the increase in the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere,” Adams reiterates from Markó’s own admissions about the benefits of CO2 for planet Earth.
So the next time you hear ridiculous alarmism “news” about the threat of the “greenhouse effect” or “CO2 emissions,” just remember that it’s all a bunch of baseless hype meant to scare gullible people into accepting climate taxes and other forms of tyranny.
