    Heresy! Impossible! CO2 is destroying the world as we know it!

    Not according to this article.

    As carbon dioxide levels have risen, the planet’s green vegetation has increased by 14 per cent.

    So far, the benefits of global greening have been greater than expected, while the costs of global warming have been smaller than expected and the price of reducing carbon dioxide emissions has been higher than expected. That price is falling more heavily on poor than on rich people. The evidence suggests that this imbalance will persist for most of this century, perhaps longer. It is time for a rethink.

    Weekly Climate and Energy News Roundup #315 @ Weekly Climate and Energy News Roundup #315

    Number of the Week: 11.9 million barrels per day (b/d), 220% higher The Energy Information Administration’s Short-Term Energy Outlook reported: “EIA projects that U.S. crude oil production will average 10.7 million b/d in 2018, up from 9.4 million b/d in 2017, and will average11.9 million b/d in 2019, 0.4 million b/d higher than forecast in the April STEO.”

    In 2009, the U.S. Crude Oil Production averaged 5.5 million b/d. The 2019 estimate is 220% higher than 2009. In 1977, Haapala was under a government contract to evaluate the models used to predict the world would run out of oil and the US out of natural gas around 2000. He reported that the models were incapable of making such predictions, and why. Global climate models have similar problems. His report disappeared in the bureaucratic science of the time.

    We are fortunate that independent oil and gas producers did not believe government models and predictions.

    Completely predictable.

    BUT the whole point OF Greening is to stop the Rise of CO2.
    and we aint even Close to doing that

    We are probably extracting a million years of naturally sequestered carbon every year now.

    Yes, we'll have a greener planet, with no more low-lying cities, (NY, Miami, SF, Shanghai, London, etc x100) but quicker growing Zucchini.
    Great!

    The irony?

    All the forest fires the climate crusaders blame on global warming are actually making the planet greener.

    Now really.... how fucking funny is that? :113::113::cul2:

    They are very wrong about Forest Fires anyway since the data exposes their lies:

    The Putrid Sons of Petrocrats. Paper or Plastic

    The forest fires erupt in areas where the Greenies; laws won't let forest-product companies log. Spoiled brats have too much power in a republic. The Right is totally responsible for empowering the Left.

    Just wait until that huge bubble of methane is released from the frozen tundra and the Earth smells like a pig fart.

    It isn't going to happen, besides CH4 is almost irrelevant as a GHG anyway.
