Harvard Public Health Paper Threatens Africans Health with a Carbon Dioxide Scare Story
by Craig D. Idso and Caleb S. Rossiter
An inconvenient scientific fact for the climate alarmist industry is that industrial carbon dioxide turns out to be plant food. The burning of fossil fuels to generate electrical power has not only led to dramatic economic growth, and hence the wealth that buys health and life expectancy. It also has led to a greening of the planet by carbon dioxide, an inert, non-polluting byproduct of combustion.
The fossil-fuel-driven 45 percent increase in CO2 levels since 1900 from a bit less than three percent of one percent of the atmosphere to a bit more than four percent of one percent has increased plant growth by at least 15 percent and perhaps as much as a third. (http://www.co2science.org/articles/V20/oct/a14.php) After all, that’s why carbon dioxide is pumped into greenhouses, to increase productivity. NASA has published dramatic images of this “greening” of the planet. (https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2016/carbon-dioxide-fertilization-greening-earth)
