Biology 101

Who knew that increasing CO2 could have a beneficial effect? I mean, other than anyone who took biology in high school.

They found that over a period of almost two decades, the Earth as a whole became more bountiful by a whopping 6.2%. About 25% of the Earth’s vegetated landmass — almost 110 million square kilometres — enjoyed significant increases and only 7% showed significant declines. When the satellite data zooms in, it finds that each square metre of land, on average, now produces almost 500 grams of greenery per year.

Why the increase? Their 2004 study, and other more recent ones, point to the warming of the planet and the presence of CO2, a gas indispensable to plant life.

Yet another inconvenient truth: Al Gore wants to kill plants.

1619 Project wasn't "a historical look." It was "an ahistorical look."

The CDC needs to answer for what exactly changed in the last 3 months allowing them to suddenly go from ‘masks’ to ‘no masks’ for vaccinated people, overnight, during Biden’s worst news week so far.

The science didn’t change. It seems only the politics did.
