"2. There is plenty of conclusive proof that increased levels of CO2 are actually good for all life." . Not good for all life. Increases global warming, so rising oceans and more extreme weather, more droughts may cause food crisis or am I wrong?
Who is right?
Many scientists are quick to claim we are almost at a tipping point of 400 ppm CO2, and that is causing bad weather and heating our planet and humans are the main cause.
Many scientists are also quick to point out that life on Earth has flourished, for many millions of years, with CO2 levels of 3000-5000 ppm, and that extreme weather has always existed. Obviosuly, man and the industrial revolution did not cause any of that.
We also know that Temperature fluctuations are constant thorughout history and often coincide with rising and falling CO2. But that does not mean that CO2 is the causation of increases or decrease in temps. They know this because summer and winter levels alone swing on a CO2 level graph, based on obvious seasonal vegatation.
What confuses me is that nobody wants to discuss this. Everyone has their side, either alarmist or denier, and will not change their minds. Which is fine, except one of those sides wants to drastically alter the life we live in, based on controversial beliefs and math models.
This is nothing new. I have lived my whole life in panic from false predictions. Now I see it in my kids who say, and I quote.......why bother with a career when the world will soon end. It breaks my heart and I can't get through to them.
