Co2 pollution is good!!

When one watches the following advert paid by the coal industry it is hard to know whether to laugh or cry.

Only in America.

For more information read this link from Care2.

Relax, CO2 is Good for You!

The Washington Post reports that long-time oil industry executive H. Leighton Steward has teamed with Corbin J. Robertson Jr., chief executive of and leading shareholder in Natural Resource Partners, a Houston-based owner of coal resources, to get out the message that higher CO2 levels will actually help the Earth's ecosystems. They have invested $1 million into two new organizations, one to lobby, one to educate the public. How lucky we are that these fearless oil and coal industry executives are leading this charge for truth.

Seems to me that most of the "noise" ignores the stripoing of the world's rain forests.

As I recall, they are (were) the major user of CO2 and emitter of O2. Once they are gone, they're lost forever. It's one thing to plant trees; it's quite another to try and rebuild an entire ecology.
