STORY AT-A-GLANCE
The video above, “CO , The Gas of Life,” features a lecture given at the Summit Old
Guard Meeting in New Jersey, October 3, 2023, by William Happer, Ph.D., Professor
Carbon Dioxide — The Gas of Life
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola January 27, 2024
Carbon dioxide (CO ) is commonly mischaracterized as a harmful waste product of
respiration and is falsely blamed for disrupting the planetary climate
 2
CO is an essential gas necessary for life. Moreover, its impact on Earth’s temperatures is
negligible, and will remain negligible even if the current concentration in the atmosphere
were to double. A 100% increase of CO , from 400 ppm to 800 ppm, would decrease
radiation into space by just 1.1%, resulting in a 0.7 degree C increase of the average earth
temperature

A 0.7 degree C difference means there’s no climate emergency, and no matter what we do
to reduce CO emissions, it’s not going to impact global temperatures. To fabricate an
emergency where there is none, it is assumed that massive positive feedbacks are
involved. However, most natural feedbacks are negative, not positive, so isn’t it likely the
0.7 degree C increase is an overestimation to begin with

2
There’s no single temperature of the Earth. It varies by location and altitude. For every
kilometer of altitude, you have an average cooling of 6.6 degrees C

Higher CO levels will green the planet, making it more hospitable to plant life. The more
CO there is, the better plants and trees grow. CO also reduces the water needs of
plants, reducing the risks associated with droughts

    CO2 is a whole 0.039% of the atmosphere. It's hard to find a "climate" scientist not funded by the gov't that agrees that humans are creating global warming.

    al-gore's own chart shows the rise in CO2 followed AFTER the temp increases

    the Earth is still recovering from the last Ice Age and the Little Ice Age

    the Earth does not respond in years or hundreds of years
    it can take thousands

    any of the climate crisis clowns ever say what caused the last set of Ice Ages??
    doubt they have
    how do they know the series of Ice Ages is over and that we are no in-between two of them

    Yeah, the whole CO scare is unbelievably idiotic. I love the video of the congressional hearing where the intelligent congressman is asking the people testifying what % of the atmosphere was made up of CO. Guesses ranged from 3 to 5%. He clarified for them that it was around .04. and explained that an increase to .05 would not make any measureable difference. He also stated that dropping below .03 would actually make it more difficult for plant life to survive. (don't know enough to verify that.) The geniuses giving testimony obviously had no clue.
