'The mostly non-scientist proponents of climate hysteria realize that distant forecasts of remote problems by inadequate models are unlikely to motivate people to shut down modern industrial society. They, therefore, attempt to claim that we are seeing the problems right now. Of course, the warming that has occurred over the past 200 years or so, has been too small to have been a major factor. However, objective reality matters little when it comes to propaganda – where repetition can effectively counter reality.'

CO2 Scare Campaigners Plumb Newish Depths by Pushing Children to the Frontline

How low will they sink?  CO2 Scare campaigners use children to push their case in an American court.  They have been building up to this for a while.

It is long since past time that I got this blog up and running with posts again.

  This disturbing news item will spur me to do just that.

The harm that such campaigners have already helped bring to children includes starvation, energy poverty, suppressed economic development, and of course a terrible fear of the future.

Meanwhile, the climate system continues to act just as it might if the rising CO2 levels, from whatever source, were of little consequence.   Where these increasing levels have had a noticeable impact, however, has been in helping increase food supplies by virtue of boosting plant growth.
