In a recent paper written for the Heartland Institute Greenpeace founder and conservationist Dr. Patrick Moore explains in great detail why he is, what the radical left wing extremists call, a “skeptic” on so-called “global warming.”

Dr Moore tells the reader that, despite the hysterical rantings of lunatics and con artists, carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. Far from it! In fact, as anyone who paid attention in elementary school science class knows, carbon dioxide is an essential element for all life on earth.

Dr Moore also notes that carbon dioxide levels are actually at precariously low levels, to the point of danger. Something we will talk about more in a later post today.

Dr Moore, an actual scientist, tells us that we should celebrate carbon dioxide, not fear it. It is an essential; element for all life on earth.

From the article:

Why I am a Climate Change Skeptic

March 20, 2015

[Editor’s Note: Patrick Moore, Ph.D., has been a leader in international environmentalism for more than 40 years. He co-founded Greenpeace and currently serves as chair of Allow Golden Rice. Moore received the 2014 Speaks Truth to Power Award at the Ninth International Conference on Climate Change, July 8, 2014 in Las Vegas. Watch his presentation about this piece in the video below]

By Dr Patrick Moore

I am skeptical humans are the main cause of climate change and that it will be catastrophic in the near future. There is no scientific proof of this hypothesis, yet we are told “the debate is over” and “the science is settled.”

My skepticism begins with the believers’ certainty they can predict the global climate with a computer model. The entire basis for the doomsday climate change scenario is the hypothesis increased atmospheric carbon dioxide due to fossil fuel emissions will heat the Earth to unlivable temperatures.

In fact, the Earth has been warming very gradually for 300 years, since the Little Ice Age ended, long before heavy use of fossil fuels. Prior to the Little Ice Age, during the Medieval Warm Period, Vikings colonized Greenland and Newfoundland, when it was warmer there than today. And during Roman times, it was warmer, long before fossil fuels revolutionized civilization.

The idea it would be catastrophic if carbon dioxide were to increase and average global temperature were to rise a few degrees is preposterous.

Recently, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) announced for the umpteenth time we are doomed unless we reduce carbon-dioxide emissions to zero. Effectively this means either reducing the population to zero, or going back 10,000 years before humans began clearing forests for agriculture. This proposed cure is far worse than adapting to a warmer world, if it actually comes about.

IPCC Conflict of Interest

By its constitution, the IPCC has a hopeless conflict of interest. Its mandate is to consider only the human causes of global warming, not the many natural causes changing the climate for billions of years. We don’t understand the natural causes of climate change any more than we know if humans are part of the cause at present. If the IPCC did not find humans were the cause of warming, or if it found warming would be more positive than negative, there would be no need for the IPCC under its present mandate. To survive, it must find on the side of the apocalypse.

The IPCC should either have its mandate expanded to include all causes of climate change, or it should be dismantled.

Political Powerhouse

Climate change has become a powerful political force for many reasons. First, it is universal; we are told everything on Earth is threatened. Second, it invokes the two most powerful human motivators: fear and guilt. We fear driving our car will kill our grandchildren, and we feel guilty for doing it.

Third, there is a powerful convergence of interests among key elites that support the climate “narrative.” Environmentalists spread fear and raise donations; politicians appear to be saving the Earth from doom; the media has a field day with sensation and conflict; science institutions raise billions in grants, create whole new departments, and stoke a feeding frenzy of scary scenarios; business wants to look green, and get huge public subsidies for projects that would otherwise be economic losers, such as wind farms and solar arrays. Fourth, the Left sees climate change as a perfect means to redistribute wealth from industrial countries to the developing world and the UN bureaucracy.

So we are told carbon dioxide is a “toxic” “pollutant” that must be curtailed, when in fact it is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, gas and the most important food for life on earth. Without carbon dioxide above 150 parts per million, all plants would die.

Human Emissions Saved Planet

Over the past 150 million years, carbon dioxide had been drawn down steadily (by plants) from about 3,000 parts per million to about 280 parts per million before the Industrial Revolution. If this trend continued, the carbon dioxide level would have become too low to support life on Earth. Human fossil fuel use and clearing land for crops have boosted carbon dioxide from its lowest level in the history of the Earth back to 400 parts per million today.

At 400 parts per million, all our food crops, forests, and natural ecosystems are still on a starvation diet for carbon dioxide. The optimum level of carbon dioxide for plant growth, given enough water and nutrients, is about 1,500 parts per million, nearly four times higher than today. Greenhouse growers inject carbon-dioxide to increase yields. Farms and forests will produce more if carbon-dioxide keeps rising.

We have no proof increased carbon dioxide is responsible for the earth’s slight warming over the past 300 years. There has been no significant warming for 18 years while we have emitted 25 per cent of all the carbon dioxide ever emitted. Carbon dioxide is vital for life on Earth and plants would like more of it. Which should we emphasize to our children?

Celebrate Carbon Dioxide

The IPCC’s followers have given us a vision of a world dying because of carbon-dioxide emissions. I say the Earth would be a lot deader with no carbon dioxide, and more of it will be a very positive factor in feeding the world. Let’s celebrate carbon dioxide.

On this Earth Day 2015 while the lunatics, environmental extremists, and Fascists hellbent on world domination [and absolute control of every facet of your miserable life] scream at the top of their lungs about the “evils” of carbon dioxide, please remember, that without this precious and vital element, without Co2, you … and everything else on Planet Earth, would die a horrific death.

The Communists, Socialist, and the Fascists who make up the democrat party, have an agenda and it is an agenda that is not compatible with civilized society.

Celebrate carbon dioxide and enjoy life today, and every day!

      Indeed! Without carbon dioxide all plant life on earth would die, and everything else will follow.

      Liberals generally don’t believe in God. This makes them miss what a perfect system of sustainability He created.
      Humans, animals, fish, etc breath in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. In return, plants take in that carbon dioxide, and convert it to oxygen! You literally can’t have too much Co2, as long as you have adequate plant life!

      This is literally one of the most amazing things in nature!

    From Greenpeace http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/en/media-center/news-releases/greenpeace-statement-on-patric/ :

    ” Patrick Moore often misrepresents himself in the media as an environmental “expert” or even an “environmentalist,” while offering anti-environmental opinions on a wide range of issues and taking a distinctly anti-environmental stance. He also exploits long-gone ties with Greenpeace to sell himself as a speaker and pro-corporate spokesperson, usually taking positions that Greenpeace opposes.

    While it is true that Patrick Moore was a member of Greenpeace in the 1970s, in 1986 he abruptly turned his back on the very issues he once passionately defended. He claims he “saw the light” but what Moore really saw was an opportunity for financial gain. Since then he has gone from defender of the planet to a paid representative of corporate polluters.

    Patrick Moore promotes such anti-environmental positions as clearcut logging, nuclear power, farmed salmon, PVC (vinyl) production, genetically engineered crops, and mining. Clients for his consulting services are a veritable Who’s Who of companies that Greenpeace has exposed for environmental misdeeds, including Monsanto, Weyerhaeuser, and BHP Minerals. ”

    Moore ignores basic common sense. As an example, in the past, we had massive expanses of forests and jungles,which sucked up immense quantities of CO2. Those forests and jungles have almost disappeared, comparatively speaking, and the ability to soak up CO2 has fallen dramatically.

    He also ignores science. His “no significant warming for 18 years” is a fallacy. In fact, 2015 has so far been the warmest year in more than a century. (http://news.discovery.com/earth/global-warming/2015-hottest-year-to-date-could-top-2014-record-150417.htm)

    I could pick apart more of Moore’s article but it would be a waste of time. His Right Wing agenda is pretty obvious

    • Gary P Jackson

      Bullshit! The warmest year in recorded history was 1936. We just published an article where the government’s OFFICIAL weather agency, after being caught lying, quietly reinstated July 1936 as the hottest month on record.

      Dr Moore left Greenpeace because the radical fascist “progressives” seized control and made the organization a joke. Nothing more than a tool of the radical left.

      Everyone with a working brain, and an IQ above room temperature knows “global warming” is a HOAX.

      Thumb forward a few pages and read an article by an ACTUAL climate expert who notes the world’s Co2 levels are dangerously low.

      Wise up, son. Stupid and democrat is no way to go through life!

    Say Hello – AND – Good Bye to the “Anthropogenic Climate-Change” scare-tactics and frauds! – Said so, . . . by one of the co-founders of GREENPEACE, a P-H-D, nonetheless.
