CO2 Uptake Greater than Previously Thought

Posted by greg2213 on September 30, 2011

From WUWT:

The global uptake of carbon by land plants may be up to 45 per cent more than previously thought. This is the conclusion of an international team of scientists, based on the variability of heavy oxygen atoms in the carbon dioxide of the atmosphere driven by the El Niño effect. As the oxygen atoms in carbon dioxide were converted faster than expected during the El Niño years, current estimates for the uptake of carbon by plants are probably too low. These should be corrected upwards, say the researchers in the current issue of the scientific journal NATURE.

Here’s the rest: Plants gobbling up CO2 – 45% more than thought

Unlike the catastrophic fantasies of the Gore crowd, there is considerable real word evidence (enough to state it as fact) that plants love CO2 and more is definitely better. Here’s a tiny bit of that evidence, a video on improved plant growth with increased CO2.


 
The biosphere is greening up, CO2 to blame.

The 10:10 Video – Blowing up Kinds is Funny??

Posted by greg2213 on October 1, 2010

The 10:10 video about blowing up people who disagree (which is supposed to be funny, but since I disagree I don’t get the joke) is apparently going viral.Not, I’m not linking to it, though the sites below are.

In the puritanical world I live in the idea of using children for one’s sick humor just isn’t done. Sure, the exploding kids are global warming infidels, but what if it was a Taliban flick blowing up non-believing kids? It’d be funny wouldn’t it? To them, anyway. How about Democrats blowing up conservative kids? I’m sure that Move-on.org and such would find that to be hilarious.

So I guess I can take this a couple of ways:

  • It’s just a piece produced by bigots/elitists for their own crowd, the people who “get it.” Maybe I’ll browse their site for their KKK affiliation. They’re obviously not part of the “tolerance and diversity” crowd.
  • They’re clueless about people who aren’t part of their crowd (much like our President, with his “Guns and bibles…” remark) so greatly misjudged the reaction to the video. Any belief system that doesn’t fit theirs is to be ridiculed, or worse. They call stuff like this, Edgy

Of course, given the things that people in this crowd have already said, well, it’s easy to believe that there’s something a little nastier than just comedy going on.

From the AirVent:

What the heck is wrong with envirowhackos.  This isn’t funny, it isn’t sane, it will convince noone of anything, it’s gratuitously violent, it’s indirectly threatening and worst of all, it’s obnoxiously ignorant.  Save the world by blowing up people who won’t do exactly what enviros tell them.My god these idiots should be ashamed.

The rest: Cull the Skeptics

Eu Referendum has a good write-up about it:

Most chilling of all is the casual attitudes and lack of emotion of the cold-blooded killers, the blood-splattered “teacher” happily smiling while giving homework instructions to her shocked class, after having murdered two of her charges. The SS would have been so proud of her.

The rest: Eco-jihad – the movie

GreenPeace should be right in line with the video:

Greenpeace is known for breaking the law, trespassing, putting other people at risk, and chaining its members to drilling platforms to protest and, more importantly, to reap the capital of publicity. That’s one thing – but it’s quite another to recruit, psychologically manipulate, and exploit a child for the purpose waging psychological war on people who have different opinions. Greenpeace is ratcheting up the level of violence.

The rest: Greenpeace Violence Is Escalating: “The Lines Are Drawn”

And, of course, there’s WUWT, with several posts on this thing.

Well, well, somebody came to their senses. About two hours ago, around 6:30AM PST, 10:10 took down their disgusting video showing school children were skeptical of carbon reduction suggestions from their teacher, get blown up in a gory bloodbath that covered other students with gore. It was first covered at WUWT here:

10:10 exploding skeptical children video “disappears”

A very weak non-apology from 10:10 – no admission that they have the slightest clue as to what the fuss is about.

This comment from WUWT pretty much sums it up:

I am still gobsmacked that this is real. They actually thought this was a good idea? Amazing. Goes to show how out-of-touch you can get when you surround yourself with like-minded thinkers, errr maybe not thinkers in this case, but you get the point.
