War against plant food

Carbon dioxide is plant food while carbon monoxide is pollution. By lumping all carbon as bad, the media and President Obama have turned plant food into an enemy.

The science of climate change supposedly has arrived at consensus without any real debate, and anyone who questions plant food as a climate changer is a heretic.

Carbon dioxide is not our enemy. The media and the president are perpetuating a myth as powerfully wrong as the flat Earth theory. Limiting carbon with taxes and regulations will limit the pursuit of happiness.

Carbon dioxide is the staff of life on Earth. Why would anyone oppose plant food?

The Earth has had warmer periods than today, and carbon dioxide was many times higher when volcanoes fed the plant life that fed the dinosaurs. The American methane revolution is about to change everything about our world, and our president and media are tilting at windmills and blaming man-made plant food for every weather event.

Mother Nature makes 95 percent of the world's carbon dioxide. Freedom and prosperity revolve around abundant and cheap energy, not tax-happy central planners and their soft inquisition.
