Skip to comments.When Too Little CO2 Nearly Doomed Humanity
Posted on 06/04/2017 6:38:44 AM PDT by rktman
Aside from the expected protests of Al Gore and Leonard Di Caprio, the public didnt seem to raise its CO2 anguish much above the Russians-election frenzy the media already had going. Statistician Bjorn Lomborg has already pointed out that the Paris CO2 emissions cuts would make only a 0.05 degree C difference in earths 2100 AD temperature. And thats in the unlikely event that all parties actually kept their pledges.
During the last Ice Age, however, too little CO2 in the air almost eradicated mankind. Thats when the much-colder water in the oceans sucked most of the CO2 from the air. There were only about 180 parts per million in the atmosphere, compared to todays 400 ppm.
The Ice Ages combined horrorsintense cold, permanent drought, and CO2 starvationkilled most of the plants on earth. Only a few trees survived, in the mildest climates.Much of the planets grass turned to tundra, which is much less nourishing to the herbivores we depended on for food and fur. Cambridge Universitys recent studies say that, worldwide, only about 100,00 humans were left alive when the current Interglacial warming mercifully began.

P.S. The "permanent drought" was only temporary.
NON print version:
Too little CO2 would kill off our planet. We would look like Mars.
CO2 is great for Trees and Plants.
CO2 levels haven been thousands of times higher in the past.
We need more CO2 and not less.
Hey, I’m tryin’ to do my part.
I'll go back to when this all started...and what Hillary said. I believe she was introducing Gore at the time....as designated hitter.
IMOW...."This "program" is to engage children in politics.
And they sure did....Penguin movies...green shirts for schools.
Just plain brainwashing.
Hey Al....still going for massage therapy??
I've been aksing as many Einsteins as I can to explain to me what the Paris Accord would reduce the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere to and not one of them has bothered to answer me.
I even spot them the current composition which lists CO2 as comprising .038%, which, I helpfully point out is not 38% but 4/100ths of 1 percent.
Sheesh. You'd think people with such a deep respect for science would gladly engage.
Well, ya gotta give them a break. Amending actual data to meet your requirements takes up a lot of their time. LOL! You know they’ll not answer the following:
1. Define the correct temperature range for the planet.
2. Define the correct humidity range for the planet.
3. Define the correct mean sea level for the planet.
4. Define the correct amount of precipitation for the planet.
5. Define the correct makeup of the atmosphere.
6. Define the correct amount of sea ice at the N/S poles.
7. Define/explain past glaciation and subsequent warming without any input from humans.
Of course you would probably have to stipulate Earth as the planet in question.
Baby steps, young Grasshopper, baby steps.
LOL! They would gently explain to you that “It’s not that simple.” Then dismiss you.
Don’t worry fellow alarmists, they are building carbon sequestration plants as fast as they can. Soon the atmosphere will be scrubbed of that dreadful CO2 and the climate will stabilize to our liking.
Don't know if you're aware but Al Gore is "best friends" with one of the two Murdoch sons ( James & Lachlan ) now running Fox News.
Wait - then why wasn’t “less C02” on the Evergreen State students demand list?
There is a very poisonous gas out there, with a chemical composition similar to that of carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide has one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms. Carbon monoxide has one carbon atom and ONE oxygen atom. When carbon monoxide is absorbed into the blood stream, it combines with the hemoglobin in much the same manner as diatomic oxygen (O2) does, but crowds out the hemoglobin’s capability to carry oxygen, and the organism dies of oxygen starvation, silently and with few warning signs other than a splitting headache.
In the illiteracy about chemical compounds that most of the educationally underserved bandy about, the confusion between CO2 and CO is highly probable. One is good, the3 other is bad for people.
Referenced Cambridge data is inaccessible. Theory hinges on data that cannot be seen due to bad/malformed link.
The Martian atmosphere is 95% CO2, and yet, despite this deadly greenhouse gas, the average temp is -80°F. Maybe things are a little more complicated than the enviros want to admit.
Great now you gave them the idea and it’ll get added to the list. I’m sure they monitor FR for this kind of stuff. LOL!
CO2 = VINE RIPENED TOMATOES
That is all. :)
