Even the mainstream media cannot deny scientific reality forever: Carbon dioxide (CO2) is essential for plant life. It is a key component of photosynthesis, the chemical process which plants depend on to stay alive. While it may not be well known, higher levels of CO2 are a key contributor to the massive global “regreening” that has been observed in the last thirty years. Even NASA admits that CO2 is responsible for increasing plant life around the world by a staggering 50 percent — and yet, climate change alarmists continue to deny this verifiable facts about carbon dioxide.
In a recent article, Fast Company reported on a new probiotic designed to restore depleted soil. The probiotics, scientists say, will help soil store more carbon — which, they aptly note, is essential for plant growth. Essentially, the probiotics make plants healthier and better able to absorb CO2 from the atmosphere — which accelerates plant growth and crop yields, while also helping to sequester more carbon in the soil.
Soil used to hold more carbon and was home to a diverse population of microorganisms. Much like the human digestive tract, these “good bugs” are essential for healthy soil — and healthy plants. But the rise of agrichemicals, like pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers, have left agricultural soils depleted and lifeless.
The media has just admitted two things: Carbon and carbon dioxide are an essential part of our environment, and agrichemicals are the real threat to humanity — not CO2.
Multiple studies have confirmed that increases in CO2 levels have contributed to a world-wide “regreening” effect that has left many a climate change enthusiast absolutely gobsmacked. For example, research published by the journal Nature in 2018 found that global tree cover has actually expanded by 7 percent since the 1980s.
“We show that—contrary to the prevailing view that forest area has declined globally—tree cover has increased by 2.24 million km2 (+7.1% relative to the 1982 level),” the scientists write.
Another study published by the same journal concludes that CO2 fertilization is a primary driver for global greening. In fact, CO2 is responsible for an astonishing 70 percent of plant life increases worldwide.
The benefits increased CO2 levels have for plant life is well-documented at this point. The hazardous effects agrichemicals have on soil and marine life are also well-known.
And yet the Left continues to assert that CO2 is destroying the planet — and not the pesticides, herbicides and other toxic chemicals we’re spraying all over it.
What do you think sounds more plausible: A gas that’s naturally produced or consumed by just about every life form on the planet suddenly reaches “toxic” levels and kills everything — or, a laundry list of man-made toxins wreak havoc on the environment, thanks to arrogant humans.
Climate change alarmists are a funny bunch. There are plenty of environmental hazards that are actually real. Agrichemical runoff is destroying marine life, the bees are dying and chemical pesticides are poisoning people. These things are happening right now. But what do they hone in on? Carbon dioxide, the alleged threat of the future.
In 2017, a shocking report revealed that surface temperature recordings had been manually adjusted to fake “record setting” warmth.
The infamous “hockey stick” model for global warming has also been revealed as fraudulent, again based on phony data.
Data indicating that sea levels were rising have also been found guilty of human intervention. It looks like many mainstream scientists are so glued to the global warming agenda, they’d do anything to keep pushing the big lie. There are too many instances of fraud within the climate science community to even count.
