From my own backyard: Larry Powell, a Republican state legislator from Western Kansas, has asserted that increased CO2 levels will make crops flourish. He cites a study that says that, “atmospheric CO2 enrichment will boost world agricultural output by about 50 percent.” They don’t deny global warming anymore, instead they insist that it is good for us. Here is the link to the Lawrence Journal-World article. The comments are actually much more interesting than the idiotic assertions in the article itself.
It is nice that Al Gore got the Nobel Peace Prize. And the thousand or more scientists who contributed to the UN reports. Though you have to feel sorry for perennial Nobel Peace Bridesmaid Juan Carlos II. If those ETA people would just have stayed gone, he might have had a chance, but now it’s about ten years too late.
