    CO2 Isn't Just Good For Plants




    He mentions that in Europe, they have these popular hot tub spas that pump CO2 into the water.. don't tell Greta...

    We should popularize those here just to trigger leftists.

    I love how they paint it as a toxin these days. Just because it contains no oxygen for us to absorb doesn't make it a biohazard.

    The environmentalists used to talk about restoring the rain forests and letting them absorb the stuff. But now environmentalists are causing forests to be clear cut just to keep Europeans from freezing, because they're not allowed to burn anything else.

    How do you ensure the disease continues to be profitable? Clear cut the cure.
    "Trump was just a chuckle-headed sucker" is not an effective sales pitch.

    Truth be told, CO2 is a toxin and biohazard to aerobic organisms; but at 420 ppm (current atmospheric concentration) it can be tolerated. It's got to get up to around 5,000 ppm before the toxic effects start to be noticed. It's why you start to doze off in a crowded conference room with poor ventilation. It's why they need CO2 scrubbers in submarines and spacecraft. Think back to Apollo 13 when the CO2 scrubbers in the Lunar Module weren't sufficient to scrub the CO2 from three astronauts.

    It's one of the reasons why I poo-poo Bill Nye's Climate Change Demo; because if you get CO2 concentration up to the levels necessary to raise temperature that quickly, then the warming is the least of your problems. Use a CO2 concentration of 500 ppm (which is far greater than what they're projecting by 2050) and you won't see much, if any, warming in that demo. As an aside, you also have to ask why he biased the demo by using an infrared-emitting heat lamp rather than sunlight (the part of the EM spectrum that CO2 interacts with in breaking down is in the IR part of the spectrum ... so the control jar has little reason to warm up, while the CO2 jar is biased to heat faster).

    You have the right to remain silent. Anything you post to the internet can and will be used to humiliate you.

    It's not a toxin at lower levels, since you need some in smaller amounts. Checkout the video.
