10 Myths About Global Warming And CO2

Over at US News and World report, they actually allowed a skeptic, a denier, some face time to tell us a bit about the myths of global warming and CO2

Former Vice President Al Gore may have won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his work on global warming issues, but that doesn’t mean everybody believes what Gore does: that carbon dioxide emissions cause Earth to warm. In fact, one contrarian is getting attention in Washington this week as he distributes his new book defending CO2 to House and Senate members involved in the ongoing fight over the energy bill and cap-and-trade scheme. Believe him or not, H . Leighton Steward, whom Whispers wrote about earlier this week, tells us in his new book, Fire, Ice and Paradise, about the “myths” of global warming and the damaging effects of carbon dioxide. His book is full of national and international studies, and he says that while he’s often sneered at for being a contrarian, few want to debate him directly on the issue.

Few actual climate alarmists want to debate one on one in the first place. We saw what happened when someone tried to actually question The Goracle.

From Steward’s book and our interview, here are Steward’s top 10 global warming “myths.”

Steward’s Myth 1: The planet Earth will be healthier with lower CO2 levels.
He says: More CO2 is needed to bolster plant life, which turns the gas into oxygen while also providing food.

Steward’s Myth 2: Rising CO2 levels cause temperatures to rise.
He says: Temperatures over time have fluctuated while CO2 levels have remained steady. What’s more, temperature increases have historically led increases in CO2 levels.

Steward’s Myth 10: Higher levels of CO2 than the current 385 parts per million in the atmosphere are harmful to humans.
He says: The warning level of CO2 in submarines isn’t reached until the atmosphere has 8,000 parts per million of CO2.

As the saying goes, read the whole thing (bad form to excerpt all 10.)
