Quote# 87860

The bottom line is, CO2 is not a poison to human beings, CO2 is not affecting the atmosphere, there is absolutely no evidence, I can say this with absolute confidence, there is no evidence of man-made global warming causing problems. We are actually going through a cooling period right now, which is going to increase over the next few years, it’s cyclical, it happens. I used to have a weatherman in my hometown who started the weather by saying ‘whether it’s cold or whether it’s hot, we’ll always have weather, whether or not’ and that’s exactly what this is. Every time we have a dry season or we have strong hurricanes or we have a really hot summer or a mild winter, these idiots start this drumbeat again, ‘global warming, see here’s what it is.’ They tried to say that this year is the warmest on record, it’s not. They will just keep coming up with his stuff, it’s just craziness.



Trees give off carbon dioxide; all the plants around us give it off. The fact is some scientists have done some studies saying we’ve got a carbon dioxide shortage right now. That then causes plants to die, that causes environmental damage.

Just because you can't be bothered looking for evidence doesn't mean there is none.

More Ronald Reagan: Trees pollute. Meanwhile, how about we seal you in a big glass jar?

Trees don't give off carbon dioxide, they give off oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide. Asshat.

Just because you used to listen to a weatherman who had a corny skit — and just because you don't know the difference between carbon dioxide and oxygen — doesn't mean you're not a liar or an idiot or both.

"Trees give off carbon dioxide; all the plants around us give it off. The fact is some scientists have done some studies saying we’ve got a carbon dioxide shortage right now. That then causes plants to die, that causes environmental damage."

You're a fucking idiot.

"The bottom line is, CO2 is not a poison to human beings"

May I suggest a simple experiment then? It wouldn't take long for Tom DeWeese to change his tune if he were locked in a small sealed room breathing only CO2.
Fucking moron.

Photosynthesis, idiot. Learn it, know it, live it.

Your claims can all be disproven by anyone who's taken 5th grade science. Stop talking.

Trees give off carbon dioxide; all the plants around us give it off.

Um, no they do not. Go back and read your science textbooks again. Plants take in CO2 and give off oxygen.

"The fact is some scientists have done some studies saying we’ve got a carbon dioxide shortage right now."

Name two of each. The Professor from Gilligan's Island doesn't count.

Behold your faceplant failure:



Then you exceed your previous failure:
"Trees give off carbon dioxide; all the plants around us give it off."

"The fact is some scientists have done some studies saying we’ve got a carbon dioxide shortage right now. "

A right wing shill wearing a lab coat is not a scientist"

Did you opt out of basic science at school then?

I have a great little experiment that you could do at home to prove your point to the wider world. It involves you sitting inside a large bubble full of CO2 for ten minutes. When you emerge alive and unaffected after ten minutes you will no doubt be able earn a Nobel prize for your contribution to science. One the other hand, if you are wrong, the rest of us all get to live in a world with one less moron in it.

Plants do give off CO2, but they take in a lot more than they give out, so there is a net reduction. You're actually a dick.

My mind simply will not accept that anyone could be this god damned stupid. We learned about photosynthesis and the give and take between mammals and plants in fucking second grade.

How can he NOT know plants give off oxygen and humans give off CO2? HOW?

"The bottom line is, CO2 is not a poison to human beings, CO2 is not affecting the atmosphere, there is absolutely no evidence, I can say this with absolute confidence, there is no evidence of man-made global warming causing problems."

If you believe that CO2 isn't poisonous to humans, I suggest you lock yourself in a hermetically sealed container and pump some into it. Then I'll believe you.

"We are actually going through a cooling period right now, which is going to increase over the next few years, it’s cyclical, it happens."

No shit.

"Every time we have a dry season or we have strong hurricanes or we have a really hot summer or a mild winter, these idiots start this drumbeat again, ‘global warming, see here’s what it is.’"

I do wish that people such as yourself knew what the hell you were talking about before you opened your mouth.

"Trees give off carbon dioxide; all the plants around us give it off."

Uh, no. They don't, actually. They absorb CO2 and release oxygen.

"The fact is some scientists have done some studies saying we’ve got a carbon dioxide shortage right now."

Oh, well then. We'll need to build a few thousand more coal plants to nip that problem in the bud!

"That then causes plants to die, that causes environmental damage."

You're about the most ass-backwards idiot I've seen around these parts in a long time.

Lying for Jeebus (the fundy Jesus, not the real, nice Jesus)....that's the only way I could explain this!

If there's anything you're going to find fault in from this, it absolutely should NOT be the part that states that "Trees give off carbon dioxide".

Trees, when there is no sunlight for photosynthesis (so at night, for example), undergo what is known as respiration. During this respiration, they will take in oxygen and give off CO2. The amount is significantly smaller than the amount of CO2 they take in during photosynthesis, but it still occurs.

Parroting Christopher Monckton does not make global warming any less real, idiot.

What a fucking retard! Yes, carbon warms the earth, yes, the earth is warming(very rapidly), and trees don't give off net carbon unless you burn them!

And who the hell are you to contradict climatologists and their science, huh?! We're just supposed to take your WORD on it? Nuh-uh. That's not how it works. You gotta submit a paper for peer review and have a testable hypothesis, bub.

Tom.
Please seal yourself up in any room of your home. Tape over every single crack, and open a can of compressed CO2.

Lets see how long you live.

Yes, we're going through a cooling period - that's why there was virtually no winter this year, and why over 13,000 heat records were broken between Jan 1 and May 1, 2012

Oh, wait...
