“We now have over 35 years of Landsat satellite imagery showing that with increasing carbon dioxide the planet is greening,and plant life is flourishing. Yet, the UN reports ignore the benefits of CO2.”
“Recently, the UK had children protesting CO2 emissions under the banner of “Extinction Rebellion,” implying that continued CO2 emissions will cause extinction. These events and the new UN report prompt a perplexing question: which group is more immature? The children of the Extinction Rebellion, who believe adults claiming dangers of CO2. Or, the “experts” at the UN claiming 1,000,000 species are about to go extinct from CO2, despite decades of evidence showing plant life is flourishing from more CO2.”
