Terry McCrann - "Obama adds his stupid lies to Kevin and Penny's"

President Obama:
"At a time of great fiscal challenges, this legislation is paid for by the polluters who currently emit the dangerous carbon emissions that contaminate the water we drink and pollute the air we breathe."

Terry McCrann doesn't waste a minute in skewering this … this … CRAP! Forgive me dear reader, but there is no other word for it. Just as Rudd and Wong deliberately confuse the element carbon (particulate carbon, such as soot) with the harmless gas carbon dioxide in order to fool the public, Obama is now doing the same.
EARTH to Barack Obama: Carbon dioxide is not the new asbestos. It's not even the old asbestos.

Kevin Rudd and Penny Wong's totally false and deliberately misleading "Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme" is nothing less than a disgraceful fraud which the media to its utter and almost total shame has allowed them to get away with.

But it almost pales in comparison with what Barack Obama had to say at his press conference yesterday. The relevant quote is [above].

That a political leader could say something so stupid and so fundamentally false almost defies comprehension. Although depressingly, perhaps not, given the Kevin and Penny falsehoods.

It's important to understand that this wasn't an off-the-cuff comment. It came in Obama's prepared comments. That the emissions "contaminate the water we drink and pollute the air we breathe."

Which is worse. That the President of the US doesn't understand that he is talking about carbon dioxide. What we all breathe out, and which far from polluting the air, is the tree and plant food.

And which nobody, not even the most hysterical climate changer has suggested until Obama yesterday that rising CO2 levels will cause any direct asbestos-type damage. Yes, it might fry the planet, but if so, the trees will die happy and never healthier.

We live in interesting times, where the leader of the free world can mislead his own electorate and the rest of the world with such falsehoods.

    In our greed and ignorance, we hasten to demonize CO2, the raw material, the very sustenance of life itself. Ironically, we claim that it is making us too hot. Where have I heard that before? It must be the devil himself!

    You need four things for plant life and all that depend on it, a mineral bearing substrate (soil), water, sunlight and carbon dioxide. Of these, the most precious item is CO2. It is but a trace, a mere wisp, in the atmosphere. Because it is a trace it can play no more than a very minor role in the transport and storage of atmospheric energy. That role is claimed by water vapour and its energy hungry latent heat of vaporisation.
    Our ability to live our daily lives depends on the tiny amount of CO2 present in the atmosphere. We should not forget that it is near its geological eons low, for most of the earth's history the CO2 concentration has been considerably higher.

    Don't be fooled by the greedy or their misguided, well meaning dupes. Commercialization of CO2 will not get us out of our current economic funk.

  • Terry. is it not true that if the carbondioxide drawn from the air by our oceans reaches a level of 400 parts per million which we are getting close to, that crustaceans and other common marine life will die. poisoned by an ocean too acidic to survive in. who is misguiding here? Nature has gathered and stored carbon throughout millions of years. It is stored in forms such as trees coal gas and oil as we burn them it is released in the form of carbondioxide. the balance nature gave us over many years has been destroyed in a few so to speak. The earth gives us a small window of elements in which we can survive. Its about keeping the balance right.

    ---------------------------
    As reported in wikepedia:
    Ocean acidification is the name given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of the Earth's oceans, caused by their uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.[1] Between 1751 and 1994 surface ocean pH is estimated to have decreased from approximately 8.179 to 8.104 (a change of −0.075).[2][3]
    -------------------------

    in 243 years a change of .075.
    This is important! water is not acidic until pH drops below 7.0
    It took all of 243 years and an inrease of 100ppm of CO2 to generate this infinitessimally
    small decrease in ocean alkalinity.
    Estimates are that there is only another 100 years of fossil fuel left. Even if we continue burning till the end or up to another 243 years the best we cand is even if we tripple at the worst,the decrease in alkalinity would be .075 x 3 =0.225. / 8.104 - 0.225 = 7.879! The best we can do after 243 years. And that is still a long long way from pH 7.0. Remember nothing happens despite what this so called researches say ( which is all based on political consensus, not science ) because the water will remain alkaline or base until the ph drops below 7.0 and that is a fact.
    Here is another thought to ponder: CO2 was much higher in the past. Where did all that CO2 go to.
    A lot has been adsorbed into the oceans which is why when the oceans warm up it releases more CO2 and when it cools adsorbs CO2. This has been going on for millions of years and that is why atmospheric CO2 is never static and will change back and forth in time.
