03.29 CO2 is good for you?

6 05 2007

The author of this blog felt that although a change in the amount of pollution we create is needed, going to such a drastic change as our governments have been pushing, is not necessary. After analyzing the information and views of two Ottawa scientists, it has come to the attention of more and more activists’lobbyists that human production might not have as much of a role in Global Warming as once thought. Instead, it may be a natural process which the sun goes through which effects our planet. “‘…changes in the brightness of the sun’ are almost certainly the primary cause of the warming trend since the end of the ‘Little Ice Age’ in the late 19th century. Human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the gas of concern in most plans to curb climate change, appear to have little effect on global climate…” What is even more interesting is that theses two scientists suggest the growth in CO2 emission, which many scientists have suggested as being the ultimate problem, is actually a good thing, calling the gas “plant food” which only helps the environment. They do however still recognize the need to cut polution, but the author states that the amount of money and time spent on cutting emissions should be designated to other, more important problems where the U.S. funds aid. An example which he stressed was the need to spend much of this money on providing clean water to Africa. This brings the question: Should America be focusing more on the environmental problems (where clean causation and a need for immediate solution is debatable) or should we focus money on areas which we are positive of the situation and solution?
