“One of the overall important findings of our report is that atmospheric CO2 is not a pollutant,” Idso said. “It is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that offers many biospheric benefits.
“Probably chiefly known among all of these benefits is that elevated levels of atmospheric CO2 tend to increase the biomass and productivity of nearly all plants and ecosystems on earth,” Idso said.
Some of the other findings in the biological impacts report summary include:
* The ongoing rise in the air’s CO2 content is causing a great greening of the Earth.
* Rising levels of CO2 are increasing agricultural productivity around the world, therefore increasing food security.
* Terrestrial ecosystems have thrived around the world where temperatures have warmed, including amphibians, birds, butterflies, other insects, reptiles and mammals.
* A modest warming of the planet will result in a net reduction of human mortality from temperature-related events.
Message to warmists. If warming is too much for you, show you mean it and move to Siberia with all the rest of the believers, and not to Florida with the thousands of retirees! Or tropical Broome, Western Australia’s fastest growing town.
