    Doesn't more CO2 mean faster plant growth, which means more food for people? Why do liberals want to take food from people?

    Anything that man does is evil and must be punished by catastrope. It is just as true now as it was in biblical times.

    Do you deny that libbys are the reason that corn crops have been diverted for ethanol production, leading to higher food prices which hurt the poor of the world disproportionally?

    What does that have to do with faster plant growth with more CO2?

    Let me correct your sentence so you don't look too much like an idiot.

    You meant to write

    "You're pretty much an idiot aren't you?"

    You'll notice the change in the spelling of you're. Right? You see you're is a contraction of you are.

    Your is a possessive form of you which I believe is called an attributive adjective in English classes.

    You called Liberty an idiot for pointing out that increased CO2 helps plants grow faster, inferring that the cause for increased CO2 is worse than the benefits. I was pointing out that 'fixes' for one problem that gets a lot of press often involve 'The Law of Unintended Consequences' by causing worse problems than the original situation. As this forum deals mostly with AGW, I am warning that changes implimented to decrease CO2 emmissions will likely cause more harm than good.

    exactly! now, METHANE on the other hand....curbing that SOB should be top priority, not life/food creating gases like CO2.
