    STORY AT-A-GLANCE Researchers analyzed the CO2 content of inhaled air among children wearing two types of masks, as well as wearing no mask CO2 in inhaled air under surgical and filtering facepiece masks came in between 13,120 ppm and 13,910 ppm; the German Federal Environmental Office set a limit of CO2 for closed rooms of 2,000 ppm Younger children appeared to have the highest CO2 values; a level of 25,000 ppm was measured from a 7-year-old wearing a facemask The researchers believe the use of facemasks could lead to “impairments attributable to hypercapnia,” which is a buildup of CO2 in...

    John Kerry, the US special envoy on climate, is predicting that the shift to a green economy would entail “a bigger economic transformation” than the Industrial Revolution, according to a report. “​​The fact is we’re looking at the creation of the largest market in the history of the world,” he said ​Monday, according to Fox Business. “This will be a bigger economic transformation that is right there at our disposal — bigger than the Industrial Revolution if we will start to seize it, and there are millions of jobs to be created​,” Kerry said at an event with the ​​European...
  • How the Greens Are Taking Down Big Energy From Within

    06/16/2021 7:33:32 PM PDT · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 16 replies
    The left exploits the Green Revolution to further its ecological agenda of destroying the present economic system. Its special target has long been Big Oil, which plays a dominant role in the global economy. Bolstered by the support of Big Media, Green activists are trying hard to bring the present system down. The Greens’ relentless war on oil and gas usually involves a battle of data and reports. For decades, the left has presented the inconvenient truth of dire hockey-stick-graph predictions that are constantly pushed back when doomsday fails to arrive. The oil companies defend themselves by pointing to their...
  • Poll: 1 in 3 'would not spend a single dollar on climate change mitigation' Americans overwhelmingly oppose expensive Green New Deal programs

    A new poll from Competitive Enterprise Institute reveals that Americans' financial dedication to the Green New Deal that leftists have been demanding for several years already is lagging. Just a little bit. The CEI results sampled 1,200 registered voters on environmental issues, and the margin of error was 2.83%.

    If you repeat a truth often enough, then it stays that way. Comprehensive analyses of data again show no link between rising CO2 and tropical storm intensity or frequency. It’s important to repeat that regularly. Zoe Phin The latest comes from statistics expert, Zoe Phin, who looks at the alarmists’ claim that increasing CO2 emissions are leading to more frequent and intense Atlantic hurricanes. Alarmist claims cost nothing, and so easily made. Zoe Phin looks at whether the hurricane alarmist claim holds up. Frequency First Zoe looked at the (HURDAT2) data to find out if the first of the two...

    Environmental Justice Council This is a series of on-line docs, eventually leading to the report. The actual report: An eclectic bunch of enviro justice activists (i.e., you ought to check out the list of contributors) have issued a report to BeijingBiden with their demands on future energy policy. Paramount in this is the prohibition against anything that might soften or even eliminate the so-called enviro impact of fossil fuel use. E.g., no monies may be spent on any technology related to carbon capture. Which is a bit odd since one would think that if (big bloody if)...
  • Ancient Roman 'Gate to Hell' Killed Victims With Its Deadly Lake

    A cave ancient Romans believed to be a gate to the underworld was so deadly that it killed all animals who entered its proximity, while not harming the human priests who led them. Millennia later, scientists believe they have figured out why - a concentrated cloud of carbon dioxide that suffocated those who breathed it. Dating back 2,200 years, the cave was rediscovered by archaeologists from the University of Salento back in 2011. It was located in a city called Hierapolis in ancient Phrygia, now Turkey, and it was used for animal sacrifices of bulls led through the Plutonium -...

    ...a study published ...reports that workers showed significantly lowered cognitive functioning after spending a day in a simulated office environment featuring high concentrations of carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds. By contrast, in conditions set to simulate a green building — or better yet, a green building with enhanced ventilation — cognitive performance was higher.... Carbon dioxide levels, in particular, seemed to have a major effect. “Cognitive function scores were 15% lower for the moderate CO2 day (~945 ppm) and 50% lower on the day with CO2 concentrations around 1400 ppm than on the two Green+ days,”

    I will attempt to answer the very detailed and frightening April 12 Correspondent of the Day letter from Dr. L. Fred Roensch. Perhaps a better title would have been "Despondent of the Day." He cites Bill Gates and the American Petroleum Institute as well-meaning caretakers of our planet by reciting a litany of creative means to save our children and grandchildren from his imagined horrors. My reply will begin with the failed but popular premise that we have gone from global warming to climate change. Why the change? I'll tell you why by citing Ian Rutherford Plimer, Australian geologist and...

    Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine.Were we not to take it for granted it would seem a miracle, the sun - glowing, growing, lighting, warming. Every day, a new sunrise.And everyday, just as reliably, sunset.So the cycle can start over again; God’s gift to earth. Sometimes you’re heading into the daybreak.Just as often you catch day’s end in your rearview mirror.But what we know intuitively is that the sun is our friend. It warms the earth that grows the food that provides us sustenance. And now it seems it kills the...

    After traveling several billion miles toward the Sun, a wayward young comet-like object orbiting among the giant planets has found a temporary parking place along the way. The object has settled near a family of captured ancient asteroids, called Trojans, that are orbiting the Sun alongside Jupiter. This is the first time a comet-like object has been spotted near the Trojan population. The unexpected visitor belongs to a class of icy bodies found in space between Jupiter and Neptune. Called "Centaurs," they become active for the first time when heated as they approach the Sun, and dynamically transition into becoming...

    The world's largest animals are unusually good at taking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.Seeing a whale stranded on a beach often provokes a strong reaction. It can make people curious – beached whales can do strange things, like explode. It can also be upsetting to witness a creature so magnificent in water reduced to lifeless blubber on land. What rarely registers, however, is the lost opportunity for carbon sequestration.Whales, particularly baleen and sperm whales, are among the largest creatures on Earth. Their bodies are enormous stores of carbon, and their presence in the ocean shapes the ecosystems around them.From...

    Over the past week, media across the world have proclaimed 2020 a record year for hurricanes in the North Atlantic. The culprit? Man-made climate change, of course.But this is a mistake, not only because the “records” are misleading but also because the causes of hurricanes are natural phenomena over which we have little or no influence.The New Jersey-based business news channel CNBC provided several examples of the errors. On November 30, they reported: “Research shows that climate change is making hurricanes stronger and more destructive and increasing the likelihood of more frequent major hurricanes.”The network quoted Penn State University meteorologist...

    Breathe easy. A new study suggests that surgical face masks don’t cause a buildup of carbon dioxide or restrict oxygen, despite opposing claims. The study, on the “Effect of Face Masks on Gas Exchange in Healthy Persons and Patients with COPD,” which was published in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society on Friday, was conducted after a group of Florida residents challenged Florida’s mask-wearing mandate in June, arguing that wearing the protective face coverings could result in the buildup of too much carbon dioxide.

    A research team from Caltech and the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering has demonstrated a promising way to efficiently convert carbon dioxide into ethylene — an important chemical used to produce plastics, solvents, cosmetics and other important products globally. The scientists developed nanoscale copper wires with specially shaped surfaces to catalyze a chemical reaction that reduces greenhouse gas emissions while generating ethylene — a valuable chemical simultaneously. Computational studies of the reaction show the shaped catalyst favors the production of ethylene over hydrogen or methane. A study detailing the advance was published in Nature Catalysis. Currently, ethylene has a global...
  • Wear Your Face Mask And Savor Your CO2 Breath

    This is truly a ‘duh’ moment. When a healthy person wears a face mask, they continuously re-rebreathe a portion of the CO2 that comes out of their lungs. Of course, there are many different types of masks that vary in such CO2 concentration, but the principal remains the same. Breathing air that is too rich in CO2 has its own negative health effects ! Humans breathe in air that is approximately 20.95% oxygen, 78.09% nitrogen, 0.93% argon, and 0.04% (400 ppm) of carbon dioxide. Upon exhaling your breath contains approximately 3.8% CO2. Now, people are not dropping dead because...

    The amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is still rising, even though people are driving and flying less during the COVID-19 pandemic. CO2 reached an all-time daily high on May 3rd, hitting levels that haven’t been seen in the more than 60 years since records began. The annual average is also expected to rise, according to an analysis published today by scientists at the national meteorological service for the UK and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. They found that the overall amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is still climbing steadily, and that the dramatic changes from the pandemic...

    The huge amount of carbon dioxide we are producing and pumping into the Earth's atmosphere is causing much more damage than previously thought. Rising CO2 levels aren't just responsible not for global warming; they also have a massive impact on the global food system, according to a Science Advances study. An increase in carbon dioxide can significantly reduce the level of micronutrients in certain plants. Researchers studied the effects of the gas on rice and it was found to contain significantly less protein, iron, zinc and B vitamins after exposure to the level of carbon dioxide our atmosphere is expected...
