Environmentalist wackos are upset because the Gulf Oil Spill is diverting attention away from Global Warming. Christopher Reddy even asks: "What if carbon dioxide were as black as oil?"
But while we have readily and rightfully committed ourselves to understanding the cause of the spill, its effects and how to help restore the affected Gulf Coast region, we still can't seem to come to grips with a much more dangerous, far-reaching pollutant that is changing the fundamental chemistry of our entire planet: carbon dioxide.You would have to be a complete moron to think that carbon dioxide is a pollutant and is "changing the fundamental chemistry of our entire planet."
CO2 is necessary for life, and without it we would all die. It is what plants breathe, what we exhale, and is fundamental for the world's ecosystem. If we eliminated or even severely reduced CO2 on earth, we wouldn't last 6 months. Plants would die, animals that eat plants would die, and we would die.
We learned that in elementary school, but Reddy must have had the chicken pox that day.
