We’re close, people. Close enough to make this happen. Let’s shoot for seven figures:
Scientists: Carbon dioxode at highest level in 800,000 years
The more carbon, the more flora, the more seagrass…win win.
Excellent. And in other pleasing carbon developments:
A new study has shown that despite a large promotion of the scientific community accepting the theory of global warming, those skeptical about the issue are no less knowledgeable when it comes to science.
In fact, global warming skeptics scored higher marks in a study that asked 1,540 Americans several science questions, such as “Electrons are smaller than atoms – true or false?” “How long does it take the Earth to go around the Sun? One day, one month, or one year?” and “Lasers work by focusing sound waves – true or false?”
As James Delingpole summarises: “The more scientifically illiterate you are, the more you believe in ‘climate change’.”
