Auburn Univ. confirms, plants need CO2 to live
Auburn researchers spent a whole lot of money to tell us something any 5th grader could have told us....
From FoxNews -- The model suggests that moderate amounts of air pollution, in the form of carbon and nitrogen, had a fertilization effect on young forests. Many of these new trees appeared on abandoned agricultural land during the mid-20th century.
In other words, CO2 is plant food and without it plants die. Despite what the treacherous EPA has declared at the behest of our America-hating President, CO2 is not a pollutant to be controlled and regulated as if it were Benzene or something. Water vapor contributes to atmospheric heat retention as much as 8 times greater than CO2 and plants need water to live....should water vapor then be regulated by the Gestapo-like EPA?
