Al Gore Hates Trees by Elvis-Chupacabra Al Gore Hates Trees by Elvis-Chupacabra
Al Gore Hates Trees... and all other members of the kingdom known as Fauna! Why? Well, CO2 - the dreaded Carbon Dioxide - is nothing more than plant food.

The simple fact is that the Earth is creating no more carbon. The carbon in the CO2 you are exhaling right now has been here since the planet was formed.

So, why is Carbon now the boogeyman? Political opportunism notwithstanding, the carbon released by "fossil fuels", or "hydrocarbons" were stored when the Earth was younger, more active and alive with volcanoes, primordial seas full of living organisms and dense rain forests. Those things died and that is why it's called "fossil fuel"! Your car burns the hydrocarbons stored up by dead plant and animal matter.

Many of the world's great oil and gas deposits originated in the shallow seas of the Permian and Devonian epochs which were teeming with plants and animals, many nearly microscopic! Scientists believe these great "blooms" of plant life and subsequent proliferation of critters who fed on this plant life were the result of the high CO2 in the atmosphere. The Earth has gone through several of these periods in a form of self-regulating control of atmospheric gasses.

So, unless we burn all the coal, oil and natural gas at once - and throw in a couple of thousand volcanoes - we won't see all that ancient carbon released any time soon. In the meantime, the old planet will just keep on storing carbon the old fashioned way: plant growth. (Secret: Plants die and rot, which is why the seas and soil create 99.96% of the Earth's "greenhouse carbon gasses"... not you and me and Mrs. Brown's cows!!!)

Face it, Al Gore hates trees and plants. They are taking away his rice bowl, because they are doing naturally what he's charging all the hippies to do: grow more plants.

Global warming is a natural occurring cycle. I am not a meteorologist...but I know the facts. I do work with some of them, but we don't talk much....

It wouldn't hurt to plant more trees you know. Industrialists have enough land for factories anyway, save the rest for citizens and flora (fauna is another word for animals, flora is plants).

Trees thank you.

Okay, good point for plants (which, by night, act the opposite way rejecting co2 and absorbing O2). But the real issue is "what about human beings ?" What regions will see their water supplies drained or increased? How much will the food chain be shattered by the actual warming? How many climatic refugees?

+ we probably don't even cause global warming

I read something about sunspots before... kind of a while ago tho

haha thats a good point ^^ made me giggle. But actually when microbes, plants and animals respire, they produce CO2 too

Plants are capable of producing CO2. When Co2 is low or when there's no sunlight plants will produce co2

Right. When CO2 is LOW.
