Earth is suffering a plant food crisis. The climate crazies will make it worse:
By Dr. John Happs
It would appear that climate alarmists and associated vested interest groups might have decided that an increasing number of politicians and members of the public no longer see the trivial amounts of atmospheric carbon dioxide as having much of a role to play in our ever-changing climate and the weather extremes the planet has always experienced.

Dr Patrick Moore has Ph.D. in ecology and is a veteran of peace and environmental activism having faced down the harpoons of whaling ships as a founding member of Greenpeace. In this video explains the benefits of increasing levels of CO2 in the environment.
By Andrew Kenny
We need to be careful. Climate alarm is nonsense. The idea that rising CO2 will cause dangerous change is nonsense. Actually, it will have no [significant] effect on the climate but a wonderful effect on plant life.
But the recent rise in CO2 (since about 1850) is because of man burning fossil fuels. (It is not because of volcanoes.) We can see that by the fact the extra CO2 contains no C14. We can also see that in the graphs of temperatures and CO2 levels over the last ten thousand years. We must not only accept that but be proud of it. Rising CO2 has done the planet a power of good.

Villian or Hero: CO2 Beats Net Zero: The True Story of CO2, by John Robertson.
The message of this book is that atmospheric CO2 is, on balance, very good for Mankind and for Nature.
We should have more of it. A hero indeed! Young David defeats huge Goliath. Net Zero CO2 by 2050 is, in my opinion, an idiotic aim which will, because it contradicts the real world, collapse long before its due date. Demonizing CO2 is just as mad and even more harmful than the 16 th , 17 th , and 18 th century villainy of hanging, drowning, or burning countless thousands of defenceless old women because they were deemed to be ‘witches’ blamed for bad weather and bad harvests. The consensus of those times (embodied in Acts of Parliament and enforced by the Courts) was that killing witches would reduce extreme weather. The precautionary principle of the day dictated that, although there was no shred of evidence, it was good to kill thousands of ‘witches’, just in case some accusations might be true.

What historians will definitely wonder about in future centuries is how deeply flawed logic, obscured by shrewd and unrelenting propaganda, actually enabled a coalition of powerful special interests to convince nearly everyone in the world that CO2 from human industry was a dangerous, planet-destroying toxin. It will be remembered as the greatest mass delusion in the history of the world – that CO2, the life of plants, was considered for a time to be a deadly poison.
Future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century’s developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree, and, on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined into implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age.

Two great sequestration periods occurred since the mid-Paleozoic and both appear to coincide with evolution of plants. The first woody plants and trees arose in the Middle Devonian and fueled the large coal swamps of the Carboniferous Period. Later explosion of the flowering plants (angiosperms) occurred in the Cretaceous. All the while additional C was being locked up in limestones. Also in high TOC (Total Organic Carbon) muds that were converted to the shale/mudrocks that we are now liberating with fracking.

71% of the earth’s surface is covered by water and large areas of the land are covered by frozen water. Water and water vapour are also significant components of the atmosphere.
The atmosphere and its trace component of carbon dioxide is a very thin skin in close contact with the surface of all of this water. Carbon dioxide is very soluble in water and Henry’s Law says that as the temperature of water changes the quantity of carbon dioxide dissolved in that water will change.
Thus if the sea surface temperature increases, carbon dioxide will be expelled to the atmosphere just like carbon dioxide bubbles are expelled from a warming beer. And as sea surface temperature falls, carbon dioxide will dissolve in the cooling water and this reduces the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Electric vehicles might be okay for suburb hopping in big cities, but I doubt there is a farm in Australia that would be able to run without any petrol or diesel. The Greens’ calls to ‘rapidly transition to electric vehicles‘ for their net zero economy by 2035 shows they have no clue of the energy requirements in transport, industry and agriculture.
Following is Malcolm Robert’s speech to the Australian Senate:

Australian politicians are trying to maintain their never-ending Climate War on carbon fuels while waging a Lockdown War on the elusive Covid virus and also provoking a Trade War with China, our biggest trading partner.
We cannot afford three hopeless and costly wars at once. One would be too many. Continue reading “Three Costly Aussie Wars – Climate, Covid and China”
