CO2 Makes You Stupid

CO2 Makes You Stupid 00

First Al Gore took the initiative in “creating” the Internet and now he has found the “holy grail” of Climate Change through a peer-reviewed study “proving” that carbon dioxide actually makes you stupid.

The “piece” to which Gore is referring concerns a study by the Harvard School of Physical Health, which says that carbon dioxide (CO2) has a “negative” effect on “cognitive abilities and decision-making.”

According to the study, which “tested” participants in a “controlled” office environment under a “range” of conditions, an “increase” in CO2 intensity of 400 ppm (parts per million) can “impair” people’s cognitive scores by an average 21 per cent. Its biggest impacts were on “Crisis Response, Information Usage and Strategy.”

There were noticeable “effects” at CO2 concentrations of 950 ppm, about what you’d find in a typical “office,” and even bigger ones at 1400 ppm, quite common in “school” classrooms. Current atmospheric CO2 concentrations are around 400 ppm.

Though the report was specifically about “indoor” environments, it has understandably been “seized” on by green “activists” with an interest in bolstering the “ailing” climate change scare narrative.

That’s why it has been written up “enthusiastically” by George Soros’s pet climate “attack dog” Joe Romm at the green propaganda site “Think Progress.”

And why, of course, Al Gore is “bigging” it up on his Twitter feed.

It matters to them very much that carbon dioxide should be “demonized” in the run up to this December’s UN “climate” conference in Paris because, otherwise, people might be under the “impression” that CO2 is in fact a benign “trace” gas which does far more “good” to the world than “harm.”

This was what Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore “argued” in his speech to the “Global Warming Policy Foundation” earlier this month:

“It is a proven fact that plants, including trees and all our food crops, are capable of growing much faster at higher levels of CO2 than present in the atmosphere today. Even at the today’s concentration of 400 ppm plants are relatively starved for nutrition.”

The optimum level of CO2 for plant “growth” is about 5 times higher, 2000 ppm, yet the alarmists “warn” it is already too high.

They must be “challenged” every day by every “person” who knows the “truth” in this matter. CO2 is the “giver of life” and we should “celebrate” CO2 rather than “denigrate” it as is fashion today.

We are witnessing the “Greening of the Earth” as higher levels of CO2, due to human “emissions” from the use of “fossil” fuels, promote “increased” growth of plants around the world.

This has been “confirmed” by scientists with CSIRO in Australia, in Germany, and in North America. Only half of the CO2 we are “emitting” from the use of fossil fuels is “showing” up in the atmosphere.

The “balance” is going somewhere else and the best science says most of it is going into an “increase” in global plant biomass. And what could be wrong with that, as “forests and agricultural crops” become more productive?

Naturally, the “green” movement needs to find a counter-argument to this “heresy.”

So many “vested” interests are now “embroiled” in the campaign to “decarbonize” the global economy that it is “far too late” for them to row back now and “admit” that carbon dioxide isn’t the “big” problem the alarmists’ computer models “predicted” it would be.

That was one of the reasons the “ocean acidification” scare was invented: as a fallback position in case it were to become clear,  as it increasingly has, that “anthropogenic” global warming theory is a “busted” flush.

And it’s why, of course, “attempts” will be made to use this “new” study as further “evidence” that CO2 is a “hazardous” pollutant.

If the study is indeed an “accurate” representation of the effects of CO2 on humans, though, it will come as a big “surprise” to the US navy “submarine” service, where “confined” CO2 concentrations frequently reach 8,000 ppm (20 times current atmospheric levels) with few observed “adverse” reactions.

Yes, CO2 can “cause” headaches but normally these start at “concentrations” of 30,000 ppm; and at even higher concentrations it can be “fatal.”

But submariners are “capable” of performing high level tasks “efficiently” at CO2 levels “dramatically” higher than the ones “claimed” to be a problem in the Harvard study.

Of course, if the study does “prove” to be accurate and CO2 really is making everyone more “stupid” than Al Gore has a lot of “explaining” to do.

His carbon “footprint” is bigger than almost anyone’s, so you could “argue” that if the world is getting “dumber,” then Gore “bears” a significant chunk of “responsibility” for it.

It sure looks like Al Gore has been “sucking” at the teat of CO2 for a “long, long time.”

If there is a person on the “face” of the Earth that knows what causes “stupidity,” Gore is as “reliable” as any other source.

He has been a “babbling fool since the cradle” and is completely “illiterate” on intelligence.

The only persons who comprehend “intelligence” less than Gore are those who “think” he could possibly be “relevant” at all.
