Skip to comments.A little perspective on "pollutants."

A little perspective:
Substance A is the 2nd most reactive substance in the universe. Of all the stable, naturally occurring compounds in the universe, only two exceptionally rare elements are safe from its extreme corrosiveness (not counting the corroded products themselves, of course). It is waste product of bacteria and plants, and nearly wiped out all life on earth when plants and bacteria began to emit too much.
Substance B is the basis of all known life. All plants need it to "breathe." But, it is so precious and essential that 99.9% depleted in the Earth atmosphere. If it weren't so scarce, the deserts themselves would bloom like tropical rain forests. (Plants actually dry out desperately trying to exchange moisture for this substance; otherwise they could retain water dozens of times better.) It is so important that plants suffer animals to exist solely because they free up used up traces of this; From the point of view of 99% of life on earth, our role in the world is to reconstruct substance B out of substance A and plant matter so that plants can continue to live. Oddly, however, liberals seek to regulate and minimize the release of substance B.
Substance A is oxygen; substance B is carbon dioxide.
The first lifeforms on Earth excreted CO2 I think
Excellent! But don’t forget the deadly dihidrogen monoxide, aka hydric acid.
Yup, it’s all about depopulation- the obvious goal of the Globalists. Really, this is war - rational people need to understand this, and start fighting back in earnest.
I heard this commercial on the radio this morning asking people in Michigan to fight for stricter home building codes because it will “save millions” in energy costs (which the Left wants to keep very expensive). This is what keeps people from selling their older homes because they have to bring everything up to “code.” The Left makes the kool-aid sound so good, just like Jim Jones.
Nope. Chemoautrophic prokaryotes consumed carbon dioxide, a naturally occuring, relatively stable molecule, and used energy derived from hydrogen, ammonia, elemental sulfur, hydrogen sulfide, and iron to build more complex molecules, releasing oxygen as a waste product which was highly toxic to themselves.
My niece’s science teacher is wrong?
or maybe I just messed up her homework assignment??
OOps... my bad...
