Is Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Really A Pollutant Or Are The Green Blob Scamming Us all

13 February 2024

 


This blog has always positioned itself firmly on the side of the sceptics in the Climate Change debate, and with good reason. While the climate catastrophe scaremongers demonise Carbon Dioxide (CO2) as a deadly pollutant which, when emitted from carbon rich sources, e.g coal, natural gas, oil burned during human activities, poses an existential threat to life on earth.

Now we three Boggart Bloggers, who get this blog together with help from a few friends and occasional input from other alt_news contributors, might be a bit long in the tooth but unlike some senior US politicians, age has not robed us of our wits or our memory. And we all remember learning during lessons on the natural sciences in school all those decades ago that Carbon Dioxide, though it only occurs in very small concentrations in the air we breathe, is essential to life. In fact our teachers explained that plants, fish, birds, reptiles and mammals (a categorisation which includes us humans,) are carbon based life forms. 

So when people who have fallen for the climate scam tell you Carbon Dioxide just remind them we are made from Carbon FFS.  Almost everything we eat and is or has at some time been a carbon - based life form and most of what we drink owes at least part of its flavour to carbon - based life forms (water being the exception.) What is more, in a process known as photosynthesis, during the daylight hours carbon dioxide from the atmosphere is turned into green stuff like grass and leaves. CO2 is the staple food of vegetation.

We mention this because a new study which will almost certainly be ignored by mainstream media, has been published in the journal Global Ecology and Conservation, which claims that a phenomenon known as CO2 fertilization is contributing to increased greening of the globe.  

The authors of the study, which bears the title “The global greening continues despite increased drought stress since 2000”, (hey, they're scientists - don't expect catchy headlines,) used the measurement of Leaf Area Index (LAI) to shows that more than half of the land area on earth is greening at an accelerated rate since 2000.

They also point out that “numerous studies have confirmed the greening phenomenon, investigated the drivers and corresponding influences”, an observation which challenges mainstream studies based on evidence obtained from mathematical models, which claim that increased carbon dioxide is causing decreses in the densitiy of vegetation. All of the scaremongering reports on climate change which predict imminent disaster have relied on mathematical modelling rather than data obtained from real world sources.

Using leaf area index datasets that had been “significantly updated”, the research team analyzed the global vegetation change trends from 2001 to 2020 based on the latest version of LAI datasets.

“Importantly, we also introduced the concept of LAI growth rate to analyze the rate of greening (browning). Finally, we further analyzed the drivers of LAI trend and LAI growth rate trend,” they said.

They conclude that “global greening is an indisputable fact” and “the rate of global greening increased slightly” between 2001 and 2020.

The study also looked at “global browning” –  vegetation dying off due to notionally increased temperatures, which is usually attributed to climate change – and found that the drought trend “only slowed down global greening, but was far from triggering browning”.

Comparing their work to other studies that looked at studies that found global greening the authors noted that inreased greening due to elevated CO2 presence in the atmosphere “could reduce climate warming by increasing terrestrial carbon sequestration and cooling the surface”.

“Greening acceleration occurred in 55.15% of the globe (positive trend and positive growth rate trend), while browning acceleration occurred in only 7.28% (negative trend and positive growth rate trend),” the study found.

The findings suggest that increased CO2 has been a net gain for the environment, which would stand contrary to the claim that CO2 endangers public health; a claim that was made by Environmental Protection Agency president Lisa Jackson in 2009. More recently, legislation in the U.S. has described CO2 as a pollutant. It is no coincidence that the billionaire psychopaths of Silicon Valley are all heavily invested in favour of medieval technologies like windmills. As far as they are concerned of course, We The People do not deserve things like electricity.

It begs an interesting question: is CO2 really a pollutant at the wannabe world government wallahs say, or could higher atmospheric concentrations of it actually turn out to be a positive thing?

Hottest Ever UK January Day - In One Small Village
Today’s high is not due to ‘climate change’ although Warmageddonists and climate alarmists have been quick to claim it is, but is a result of a rare phenomenon known as the Fohn (or Foehn) effect (literally ‘the hairdryer effect’) that sees isolated spots near mountains hit with a narrow blast of hot air.

Net Zero Is Dying Says The Manhattan Contrairian - But Is It Taking Western Civilisation With It?
We Boggart Bloggers have always been sceptical of the Climate Change scam. And as most of our readers will be aware, the scam had to be rebranded as 'Climate Change' because after a brief (and statistically insignificant,) warming trend in the 1980s and 90 the apparent warming stopped until 2016 when there was a brief blip because of an El Nino event on the Pacific region before global mean temperatures started flatlining again ...

Scientists says Nuclear Is The Way Forward For Clean Energy - Do Ursidae Defecate In Sylvan Landscapes?
Scientists, politicians and media have been screeching, for the past 30 or so years, about the need to transition away from carbon based fossil fuels, (coal, gas and oil,) as a matter or urgency or risk destroying the life supporting ecology of our planet by overloading the system with Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emitted from human activity. Next they'll be informing us, in their lofty and condescending way that yes, bears do actually shit in the woods.

How good it must have felt for politicians to set those lofty goals, knowing that someone else must deal with the cost and the implementation? But now the bills are now arriving, and they’re bringing a world of hurt. To sum up: Western policy elites have embarked on the electrification of society, replacing hydrocarbons in housing and transport, but without the technology to replace it well.

COP26 Climate Conference - Just Another Elitist Scam To Steal Your Money
If you are one of the people who still relies on mainstream media for information, the 'on - message' news reports coming from the COP26 Climate Conference in Glasgow this week, and during the build up to the conference, might have convinced you that the entire world (barring a few crazy conspiacy theorists,) is signed up to the 'net zero' agenda and believes that destroying the economies of the developed nations while exporting our jobs, business and prosperity to places like India and China is the only way to save the planet.

Forget The Hype About COP26 Saving The Planet, Here's The Reality
As mainstream media heaps praise on the delegates to the COP 26 climate conference because they have managed to agree to save the planet by repeating the same meaningless pledges and setting the same impossible targets as every previous climate conference in the past 20 years has, Boggart Blog brings you a message from a former colleague in Denmark, who tells us of the true condequences of 'gree' policy making in Europe's greenest nation.br> Continue reading >>>

Proof That The Alarmist Claptrap You Are Hearing And Seeing At COP26 Climate Conference Is A Load Of Bollocks
The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places, the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen, Norway. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions in the Arctic zone. Expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm ... Continue reading >>>

Green dreams of Heat Pumps Continue reading >>>
When Boris Johnson revealed the UK Government plans for achieving 'net zero' carbon emissions by 2050 it emerged the much teased clean, green replacement for gas boilers as our main source of domestic heating is to be heat pumps. The Daily Stirrer counters the pseudo-scientific bollocks and reveals this 'new technology has been around for a hundred years.

Governments' obsession with climate pseudoscience over economically and social viable solutions is leading to disaster
The government's current obsession with pursuing the target of net zero carbon emissions in order to claim the UK leads the world in green wankery is more to do with virtue signalling that governing, but with the complicity of mainstream media, particularly The BBC, climate scaremongering is providing a convenient diversion from this governments abject failure to address and of the very real economic and social problems facing us.

Globalist Elites Now Pushing For Lockdowns Save You From Climate Change


Elite globalists are now proposing that lockdowns be imposed to protect us punters from climate change. Did we ask for this? Did we vote for this?

We need a referendum on net zero to save Britain from the green blob

from The Daily Telegraph
As with membership of the EU, the political elite is imposing a revolution on the public without consent. Does the blob never learn? Voters don’t like being treated like naughty children

Thousands Of Tractors Blocks Berlin Traffic Over Plan To End Diesel Subsidy
Thousands of German truck drivers, farmers, and agricultural workers parked in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin yesterday as another massive protest over the government's 'green' plans to end tax breaks on diesel fuel and subsidies to farmers prevented from getting the best out of their land by loonytoons EU 'rewilding' policies.

German Farmers target nation's vice chancellor in subsidies protest
German farmers angered by cost-saving plans impacting the country's agricultural sector blocked the EU state’s vice chancellor from disembarking a ferry on Thursday, in a protest that was criticized by both government and opposition figures. The farmer's ager was triggered by financial cutbacks imposed by EU policy on member state’s agricultural industries have.

Germany Burns Net Zero Pledges And Fires Up Coal Generating Plants Ahead Of Winter Peak Electricity Season
On Wednesday this week Germany's coalition government approved putting coal power plants back online until the end of March 2024 to ensure energy security when natural gas supplies cannot meet demand. Though Germany has for at least a decade vied with Britain to claim leadership of Europe's ill - advised push for net zero, the Berlin government has been forced into this move

The True Cost Of The Green Energy Boom Is Now Being Realized
For four decades we have been fed a constant stream of propaganda assuring us that green energy was the only way forward if we wanted to secure supplies of the energy essential to a modern society while preventing the environmental catastrophes that would be the inevitable consequence of climate change caused by the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emitted by human industrial, commercial and social activity. ...

Do We Have A Winter Of Civil Disobedience Ahead?
As many people in Britain slap on the apres sun gloop in the wake of what passes for a heatwave in these cool cloudy climes, our inept politicians caught with their pants down by unusual weather as usual have heard that that winter is coming and are making plans for a coldwave. We are in the grip of an energy crisis at the height of summer. Last week, it was reported that the UK government is laying down plans for a “reasonable worst-case scenario” including blackouts for industry and even households. And this is as energy prices spiral out of control to new records every day.

A Mostly Wind- & Solar-Powered US Economy Is A Dangerous Fantasy
When President Biden and other advocates of wind and solar generation speak, they appear to believe that the challenge posed is just a matter of currently having too much fossil fuel generation and not enough wind and solar; and therefore, accomplishing the transition to "net zero" will be a simple matter of building sufficient wind and solar facilities and having those facilities replace the current ones that use the fossil fuels.

Debunked: The Great Renewable Green Delusion
The war in Ukraine has not caused the global energy crisis of early 2022 byt merely exacerbated it. Currently the nations currently in conflict with Russia over its incursion into Ukraine are those which are most dependent for their energy needs on Russian oil and gas. And now their loonytoons 'net zero' green energy policies have failed they are biting the hand that feeds them.
