how 'Green New Deal'
is a DEATH Cult
In direct contradiction to the scare stories about carbon dioxide
being relentlessly pushed by the climate change alarmists, a
scientific study published in Nature Climate Change and highlighted
by NASA reveals that rising carbon dioxide levels are having a
tremendously positive impact,
on the re-greening of planet Earth over
the last three decades, with some regions experiencing over a 50%
increase in plant life.
The study, entitled, "Greening of the Earth and its
satellite data to track and map the expansion of green plant growth
across the globe from 1982-2015.
Published in 2016, this study found
that rising atmospheric carbon dioxide causes "fertilization" of
plant life, resulting in a remarkable acceleration of increased
"greening" across every Earth continent.
As the study abstract
We show a persistent and widespread increase of growing season
LAI (greening) over 25% to 50% of the global vegetated
Factorial simulations with multiple global ecosystem models
suggest that CO2 fertilization effects explain 70% of the observed
In other words, the planet is getting greener, and we have rising
CO2 levels to thank for it, since rising CO2 accounts for about 70%
of the increase in planet-wide greening, according to scientists.
The more CO2 we release into the atmosphere, the more nutrients are
available for plants, and the more rapidly the Earth is re-greened.
The following compilation map shows which land masses have
experienced expanded greening since 1982. As the legend explains,
the light green areas represent a 25% increase in green plants, and
the dark green areas represent a 50% or greater increase:

You may note this is exactly what we've been
reporting for over a decade.
It's basic science, of course, since
plants use carbon dioxide to thrive:
higher CO2 means a
Earth, since CO2 is the single most important molecule for
sustaining plant life across the globe.
It is beyond astonishing
that the entire climate change cult denies the basic science of
botany and photosynthesis:
NASA confirms the findings
...and even publishes a video touting the
increase in global greening due to rising CO2
To the shock of many climate change alarmists, even NASA scientists
confirmed that carbon dioxide is "greening" the planet.
As stated on
the NASA.gov website in an article titled, "Carbon Dioxide
Fertilization Greening Earth, Study Finds":
From a quarter to half of Earth's vegetated lands has shown
significant greening over the last 35 years largely due to rising
levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, according to a new study
published in the journal Nature Climate Change on April 25.
An international team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight
countries led the effort, which involved using satellite data from
NASA's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer and the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Advanced Very High
Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) instruments to help determine the
index (LAI), or amount of leaf cover, over the planet's vegetated regions.
The greening represents an increase in leaves on plants and trees
equivalent in area to two times the continental United States.
NASA explains almost exactly what
we have been explaining for the last
That carbon dioxide is a necessary component of
photosynthesis, the biochemical process by which plants produce
Green leaves use energy from sunlight through photosynthesis to
chemically combine carbon dioxide drawn in from the air with water
and nutrients tapped from the ground to produce sugars, which are
the main source of food, fiber and fuel for life on Earth.
have shown that increased concentrations of carbon dioxide increase
photosynthesis, spurring plant growth.
Results showed that carbon dioxide fertilization explains 70 percent
of the greening effect, said co-author Ranga Myneni, a professor in
the Department of Earth and Environment at Boston University.
NASA even released a YouTube video that almost exactly mirrors the
message we been advocating for years:
Why the Green New Deal would KILL the
Greening of the Earth
In direct contradiction to the real science on the greening benefits
of carbon dioxide, Democrats routinely and mindlessly claim that
carbon dioxide is a poisonous "pollutant" that will destroy the
The anti-knowledge of lunatic Democrats demonstrates the
extreme dangers of those who are scientifically illiterate yet spout
"science" as their justification for demanding radical interventions
in atmospheric chemistry.
In truth, rising levels of carbon dioxide will cause the following
beneficial effects on Earth:
Reforestation due to Earth moving toward a warmer, wetter, more
Acceleration of food production among food crops
An increase in the biodiversity of rainforests
Increased rainfall across Earth's continents
The transformation of deserts into usable plains for grazing and
The acceleration of the greening of the planet, which is already far
greener than it was 50 years ago
There are virtually no Democrats who recognize that carbon dioxide
is the "miracle molecule" for plant life.
"Green New Deal"
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - who is scientifically and
economically illiterate - think that carbon dioxide must be
eliminated in order to 'save' the planet.
In fact, she warns that
Earth only has 12 years to go before all life ceases to exist
humans stop burning fossil fuels.
Not surprisingly, she has it all wrong:
It's the burning of fossil
fuels that's releasing beneficial CO2 into the atmosphere, causing
the global greening that NASA has already confirmed (see above).
humans stop burning fossil fuels, the result would decrease
atmospheric CO2, resulting in plants starving to death from lack of
This would, of course, lead to the mass global die-off of trees,
grasslands, food crops and rainforests.
The "Green New Deal," in
other words, would actually result in the mass killing of plant life
across the entire planet.
If the world were to follow the demands of Ocasio-Cortez, the world's ecosystems would collapse, resulting in
mass death of plants, animals and humans.
The Green New Deal is a "Death Cult"
It turns out that climate change alarmists, by vilifying CO2, are
demanding actions that would make the planet less green by killing
Instead of a warm, wet planet with abundant
rainfall and rainforests, Democrat seem to want a cold, dead world
that's devoid of plant life.
As any competent scientist would openly admit, the elimination of
CO2 from the atmosphere would collapse the global ecosystem, leading
to the complete wipe out of nearly all plants, animals and humans.
Those who are calling for the elimination of CO2 are, as I have
previously warned, actually advocating the terraforming of planet
Earth into a post-human, post-life status that would collapse human
civilization and annihilate nearly all food webs around the world.
As reported before, AOC's "Green New Deal" seeks to
eliminate the very molecule that turns planets green: Carbon
dioxide, the molecule of life.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are not the saviors of the
planet, it turns out:
They are the death merchants who threaten to
destroy all life as we know it. Carbon dioxide isn't a threat to
planet Earth, but people like Ocasio-Cortez surely are.
should be eliminated from the atmosphere, it's the hot air coming
from the mouths of the climate alarmists who are spewing their death
cult quackery that would devastate our planet if deployed.
If you really want to "green" the planet, stop the climate change
lunatics like Ocasio-Cortez whose proposals would quite literally
murder nearly all life on planet Earth.
More carbon dioxide = more green plants...
That's why CO2 is called a "greenhouse gas."
It turns the planet
into a lush, plant-filled greenhouse that's warmer, wetter and more
abundant across all plant life...
