We need to stop clear cutting our rain forests and let nature resume her natural course ...

Never before in the history of the Earth has CO2 spiked so fast in only 100 years. And it is all due to human burning. The climate is changing rapidly as the extra heat builds. In 5 to 10 years climate change will be so obvious that climate deniers will be a small minority, just like the flat earthers.
Pure liberal misinformation.

Atmospheric CO2 Concentrations At 400 PPM Are Still Dangerously Low For Life On Earth

At 400 ppm, Co2 levels are low over the course of geologic history. As liberals are eco-terrorists, they seek to REDUCE CO2, when we actually need to INCREASE CO2 levels.

Do you know the actual bandwidth, in microns, over which CO2 absorbs infrared radiation?

Do you know the bandwidth over which water vapor absorbs infrared radiation?

Do you know what percentage of CO2 in the atmosphere is man-made?

Did you know termites produce 10X as much CO2 as man?

Did you know that temps were warmer during the Roman Empire, despite lower CO2 levels?

Did you know that life on earth has thrived with CO2 levels of 5,000 ppm?


The death of the earth due to low CO2 levels will occur long before our sun goes into supernova.

No, not all. Pure science is neither liberal nor conservative.

Oh, I see. I'm sorry but a cheesy website called "NoTricksZone" is not a credible source for science. As for the rest of your questions, I won't respond because it is a common tactic among the climate denier community to have a long list of cherry-picked facts or baseless pseudo-scientific assertions that give the appearance of being knowledgeable (debaters call it the Gish Gallop).

The fossil fuel industry is funding an on-going disinformation campaign, in concert with some politicians (mostly from oil- and gas-producing states), in order to prevent political progress on climate change. This is the same strategy used by the tobacco industry when cigarettes were linked with cancer. Deny, deny, deny to get the public confused and keep the sales and profits rolling in, the public be damned.

Geologic history matters little to us. Humans have adapted over the past several hundred thousand years to a world with CO2 levels well below 400ppm.
