8 thoughts on “Synthetic Trees Remove CO2 from Atmosphere

  1. This is such a waste of time and money. Why not plant some trees?

    A few problems. 180 ppm is lethal to plants. This is soooo undesirable. Anything in the 200’s should be very alarming. CO2 has been much higher than now during three periods of the last 200 years, up to 440-550 ppm (only 390 ppm at present), and nothing happened. Also the temperatures crashed in the 1940s while CO2 was high – it simply cannot and does not drive the climate – it is a trace gas!

    We need all of the CO2 we can get as food production will decrease as we cool for the next 30-40 years. Plants with more CO2 are more temperature tolerant, use less nutrients and less water. More CO2 is a win-win for the world and for us.

    It is only by ignoring all more powerful and natural factors such as solar and ocean cycles that the IPCC can pretend that climate change (aka global warming) is our fault. They claim the half-life to be 200-1000 years when, in fact, it is about 5 years.

    The whole CO2 scare is based on junk science and lies. To have this researcher waste his time on synthetic trees is laughable and makes him the fool. He either has no good basic science education or has not applied any of his training to see if the premise of CO2 causing warming is valid (which it is not), which would be sad, or he is doing this research because of the misguided but readily available funding that the federal government throws at anything that pushes their agenda.

    The goal of the global warming scam is to create a case for a Draconian takeover of our lives and our energy, while also creating a huge get-rich-quick scam for the carbon trades, having created a false economy for a false crisis. The goal is to eventually create a one-world government, centered on energy usage controls. This government would have to be totalitarian and socialist and would purposely hand huge amounts of wealth to third world countries, not to help them develop, but to keep them form developing, turning them into nanny states with dictators or governments with the wealth to keep their people oppressed permanently.

    Yes, the whole global warming scam is an evil plot. It is not a conspiracy as they say uup front what their goals are and the IPCC is the propaganda part of the agenda – it is in no way a scientific body – it is structured, funded, and managed by politicians.

  2. removing CO2…CO2 makes up only around 0.0635 percent of the entire atmosphere, again what’s the point here????

  3. Bob Armstrong is off the mark when he complains about “suppressing the source of all carbon to the biosphere”. The clip claims nothing of the sort. Bob’s hyperbole is grossly in error.

    And as far as the comments by Charles Higley are concerned, they are typical denier lies and nonsense. Some of his false statements include the following:

    “180 ppm is lethal to plants” (it isn’t),

    “CO2 has been much higher than now during three periods of the last 200 years, up to 440-550 ppm” (no it hasn’t),

    “it simply cannot and does not drive the climate – it is a trace gas” (trace gases can be extremely important drivers of various phenomena – for example, ozone is a trace gas, but reducing it can have devastating consequences),

    “as we cool for the next 30-40 years” (the atmosphere is warming at an alarming rate, not cooling),

    “It is only by ignoring all more powerful and natural factors … that the IPCC can pretend that climate change (aka global warming) is our fault” (the IPCC takes into account all known natural climate forcings as well as forcings added by human activities),

    “They claim the half-life to be 200-1000 years when, in fact, it is about 5 years” (also false),

    “The whole CO2 scare is based on junk science and lies” (the science has been verified by many researchers; is endorsed by some of the most prominent and trusted scientific groups in existence, such as the National Academies of Science and Engineering; and is widely accepted by an overwhelming majority of reputable scientists around the world),

    “The goal of the global warming scam is to create a case for a Draconian takeover of our lives and our energy” (the goal is to prevent drastic and unfortunate consequences for our very own societies as a direct result of the undesirable climate changes that we are causing),

    “The goal is to eventually create a one-world government, centered on energy usage controls” (no, it isn’t – see above),

    “Yes, the whole global warming scam is an evil plot” (no, it isn’t – but this is about the level of comment quality I expect from a climate change denier)

  4. Doug, please check the facts. At 7000ppm Earth began cooling from well over 295K to our recent Ice Ages. CO2 does not drive temperature but is driven by it. Global Warming is a hoax, not science. A religion perhaps, but not science.

  5. Doug you, not Bob, is the one who is not stating the facts. The goal is global social control and, btw, CO2 is plant food and at 200ppm plants do start to struggle.

  6. John and pyeatte, both of your statements are incorrect.

    pyeatte, if you had listened to the video clip, you would have learned that atmospheric CO2 was at 180 ppm during the last ice age. Plant life survived very well at those levels throughout the thousands of years during that time. Oh, and by the way, global social control is not the goal. Despite your hysterical belief to the contrary.

    John, global warming is not a hoax, nor is it a religion. It is a scientific hypothesis that has been supported by the results obtained by many researchers. It is endorsed by many prestigious scientific institutions all over the world. You are hiding your head in the sand by believing otherwise. Oh, and by the way, your ridiculous claim that the earth began cooling from 295K (about 72 degrees Fahrenheit) with an atmospheric CO2 concentration of 7000 ppm; is so far outside the bounds of the credible that I conclude a) you have absolutely zero scientific expertise of your own, and b) you are simply repeating (or making up) false statements in a vain attempt to manufacture support for your denier mantra.

  7. Looks like Doug is the only one dealing with facts . Everyone else commenting so far, is part of the paranoia inspired corporate conspiracy propaganda of anti Global warming, to protect polluters bottom line. Face it the verdict is in and the whole world is seeing the devastation first hand and are on board with the reality that man made global warming is fact and is happening. Quit trying to ramp up the proven false ideology. All your doing is confusing yourselves with actual junk science. Get the real facts, stop promoting false ideology.
