Plants absorb carbon dioxide 25 percent faster than previously thought, say scientists
by Jonathan Benson, staff writer
(NaturalNews) The so-called climate change "experts" that still cling to the mythical theory of man-made global warming are having an increasingly difficult time defending this flailing position. New findings published in the journal Nature reveal that plants, which absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) and release oxygen, actually absorb CO2 about 25 faster than previous estimates assumed they did.
The findings are hugely significant, of course, because they help further debunk the myth that CO2 is an overabundant environmental pollutant responsible for destroying the earth. Besides the fact that plants need CO2 in order to produce oxygen for humans and animals to breathe -- we would all die if plants did not have CO2, after all -- their newly-discovered, much-more rapid consumption of this vital element shows that, in all truth, CO2 is not the threat that Al Gore and others claim it is.
Sure, the earth is going through some major changes right now, as it is constantly in flux between periods of cooling and periods of warming. But CO2 production ultimately has little or nothing to do with these changes as the innocuous compound is not capable of producing any type of warming. The fluctuating activity of the sun in the form of sunspots, solar flares, and coronal mass ejections (CME), for example, has a far greater impact on the earth's atmospheric temperatures than do the burning of fossil fuels.
Destructive human activities like the leveling of the rainforest and massive environmental pollution surely do not help the situation in any way, however, and they are obviously contributing in a very serious way to the demise of our planet. But the geopolitical agenda of global warming, complete with its de facto goal of one-world-government, is the crux of the scam that must be exposed.
On the same token, it was revealed back in August that one of the most popular and foundational "proofs" used to substantiate claims about global warming was completely fabricated. Observed arctic polar bear deaths were not caused by melting polar ice caps as claimed in a 2006 paper published in Polar Biology, but were actually the result of a severe weather event (http://www.naturalnews.com/033370_polar_bars...).
