For only "pennies a day," any greenhouse owner can produce CO2 to
help increase plant yields in their greenhouses.
That's the message
on CO2 generators sold by greenhouse supply companies across the
United States and Canada.
"1,500 ppm [of carbon dioxide] can be
achieved... these generators automatically provide the carbon
dioxide needed to meet maximum growing potential for only pennies a
day," the ad says.
CO2 generators "improve plant quality" and "increase production."
They're made in the USA and run on propane or natural gas, turning
fossil fuels into carbon dioxide.
Why does this work to radically improve plant growth, health and
yields? Because - are you ready for the truth? - CO2 is a
Nope, it's not a pollutant that threatens human civilization as has
been ridiculously claimed by global warming doomsday pushers. CO2
actually increases plant yields, accelerates "re-greening" and
improves reforestation of the planet.
And while today's atmosphere
contains only 400 ppm of carbon dioxide, CO2 generators can help
raise that level to 1500 ppm inside greenhouses, thereby
accelerating plant growth and food production.
Here's the ad so you can see it for yourself:
If CO2 is so
bad for the planet, why do greenhouses pay to produce it?
If CO2 was so terrible for the planet, then installing a CO2
generator in a greenhouse would kill the plants.
But scientists and even governments
actually recommend supplementing CO2 in greenhouses in order to
boost plant growth and food production.
"The benefits of carbon dioxide
supplementation on plant growth and production within the
greenhouse environment have been well understood for many
years," says the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food.
"CO2 increases productivity through improved plant growth and
vigor. Some ways in which productivity is increased by CO2
include earlier flowering, higher fruit yields, reduced bud
abortion in roses, improved stem strength and flower size.
Growers should regard CO2 as a nutrient... increasing the CO2
level to 1,000 ppm will increase the photosynthesis by about 50%
over ambient CO2 levels."
In fact, as recent scientific studies
have shown, the slight rise in CO2 levels of the atmosphere has
actually helped re-green deserts and arid areas, accelerating the
growth of trees, shrubs and grasses which produce the oxygen human
needs to breathe.
Attacking carbon dioxide is hate speech against Mother Nature
The more you really examine the scientific truth about carbon
dioxide rather than the politically-charged "hate speech" against
Mother Nature being spewed by
people like Al Gore, the more you
realize CO2 is a crucial nutrient for the Earth's environment and
In fact, the vast majority of all the CO2 released into
the atmosphere is produced by Mother Nature via animals in the
ocean. Anyone who criticizes CO2 is attacking ocean life and
condemning trillions of aquatic creatures who exhale carbon dioxide
as part of their natural respiration. (Should they all be fined?)
As a society interested in reforestation, expanding the diversity of
plant life, nourishing trees and re-greening deserts, we should no
longer tolerate anyone engaged in hate speech against Mother Nature
Those who attempt to demonize this critical nutrient for
the planet are engaged in a kind of hate-motivated racism against
If it's not okay to condemn someone for being black, why is it okay
for people like Al Gore to engage in endless hate speech against all
the living beings that are green?
Besides, all those people who keep sounding the alarm on CO2 are
being too negative all the time. Nobody spews more doom and gloom
than Al Gore and
the global warming crowd who paint apocalyptic
pictures of Earth's future if we all don't start 'paying carbon taxes'
to the super rich.
Stop being so negative!
They need to practice more positivity and repeat to themselves
"CO2 is a nutrient for forests."
"CO2 is produced by ocean life."
"CO2 brings balance to the global ecosystem."
"CO2 is to plants as oxygen is to humans."
"CO2 can help transform barren deserts into sustainable
Perhaps by staying positive, the global
warming fear-mongers and doom-and-gloomers can calm down, take a few
breaths (with extra CO2) and recognize that what's good for plants
is good for the planet.
In fact, I'm going to hyperventilate after writing this article just
to generate a little extra CO2 for the world. It's my gift to Al
For the record
- NO, I don't support burning fossil fuels
The No. 1 criticism of this story by the brainwashed hoards of
Gore cult worshippers will be that I must have been paid big bucks
by the coal industry to write this article.
Don't be ridiculous. I'm the record - for at least a decade - having exhaustively condemned the burning of fossil fuels.
though the CO2 they release into the atmosphere is actually a
nutrient, they release many other pollutants such as sulfur and
mercury (from coal). Scrubbers in the USA make U.S. coal plants the
cleanest in the world, but China's coal plants are truly sickening
I also believe it's time to get humanity off the petrochemical habit
and onto something cleaner and more renewable such as low-energy
nuclear reactions (LENR),
formerly called "cold fusion."
analysis has confirmed, yet again, that cold fusion is real and
Cold fusion could be harnessed and used in place of coal
to heat large quantities of water that drive steam turbines which
In time, all of America's coal power plants could be switched over
to cold fusion. Similarly, if improved battery technology comes
along, gasoline-powered vehicles could be switched over to
electricity, and if that electricity is powered by cold fusion, then
it's clean all the way through the energy supply chain.
Fossil fuels are dirty business: they're dirty to extract from the
ground, dirty to transport and dirty to burn.
But the CO2 they
produce is not a pollutant; it's a nutrient that's desperately
needed by trees, grasses and shrubs all around the world. So while
there are lots of reasons to oppose the burning of fossil fuels
around our planet, CO2 is not legitimately one of them.
If all this talk makes you hyperventilate, then feel free to
experience a hefty dose of self-inflicted guilt that you can
alleviate only by sending all your money to Al Gore for all the
carbon dioxide you're generating.
