Wheat growing experiments, using elevated levels of CO2 offer sensational increases in yield. New research data compliments older data in many experimental situations across many continents, putting the lie to the “carbon is pollution” rhetoric by President Obama this week, and others such as former Australian Prime Minister Gillard in recent years.
Plant Growth Database (6 August 2015)
Our latest result of plant growth responses to atmospheric CO2 enrichment obtained from experiments described in the peer-reviewed scientific literature is for Wheat (Tausz-Posch et al., 2015). To access the entire database, click here.

Julia (the pasty Welsh girl) says that Australians need to be punished because their per capita CO2 emissions are high. (Unlike Mexico, which has the highest per capita methane emissions – due to Pinto Beans.)
The fact that Australia’s total CO2 emissions are relatively about the size of a gnat on a hair on an elephant’s ass – isn’t important. It also isn’t important that her tax will have no effect on the climate. What is important is that per capita emitters are duly punished.
So I made a list of top per capita emitters of CO2.
- Al Gore
- Richard Branson
- Prince Charles
- James Cameron
- Barack Obama – who flew to Colorado to see the damage that CO2 caused.
Packs and packs of lies: The President’s Clean Power Plan is Built Upon a Pack of Lies (3 August 2015)
Today, President Obama unveiled his administration’s latest initiative to combat climate change, the Clean Power Plan. Authored and overseen by the Environmental Protection Agency, the new program requires a national reduction in power plant carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of 32 percent just a mere decade and a half from now. Such a mandate, in and of itself, is a Herculean task that can be debated as to whether or not it is even possible to accomplish, as forecasts from the Administration’s own Department of Energy indicate ever more energy will be needed in the years and decades ahead — a need that is unlikely to be met without expanding the production of energy from fossil fuel combustion…
