Dr. Craig Idso, the founder, former president, and current chairman of the board of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change :

There is a huge body of literature on the biological impacts of rising temperatures and atmospheric CO2 levels that the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) ignores. He emphatically stated that atmospheric CO2 is not a pollutant. In fact, increased levels of CO2 reduce the negative effects of a number of plant stresses including: high salinity, low light, high and low temperatures, insufficient water, air pollution, and protects against herbivores i.e. being eaten by animals and insects.

Notably, Dr. Idso emphasized that the increased CO2 levels allow plants to produce the same amount of crop yield with less water. Moreover, plants are able to grow in dry areas where it had been previously too dry to exist. A collateral benefit to this is that the increased vegetation reduces the effects of soil erosion.

This is not a brand new denier issue. The fact is man-made CO2, about 100 million tons a day, is a pollutant.

Furthermore read science about this.

In conclusion, it would be reckless to keep adding CO2 to the atmosphere. Assuming there are any positive impacts on agriculture in the short term, they will be overwhelmed by the negative impacts of climate change.

Added CO2 will likely shrink the range available to plants while increasing the size of deserts. It will also increase the requirements for water and soil fertility as well as plant damage from insects.

Increasing CO2 levels would only be beneficial inside of highly controlled, enclosed spaces like greenhouses.

After 35 years of this ongoing "Climate Crisis" one would think at least 1 island would have succumbed to rising sea levels by now.
One would be really silly or geography ignorant to think that an island can succumber to a 1 foot sea level elevation.

Another endorsement of the idiotic "but isn't C02 good for th' plants?" claim, so popular with the dimmer class of Denier.

Idso's an idiot. He's degreed in Agronomy and Geography, and is in no way even informed, much less an expert, in climate. He knows that plants like C02. His daddy, a farmer, told him so. That's pretty much the extent of his qualifications and his arguments.

He's also worked for Peabody Energy and Heartland Institute - Big Energy and Big Denierism, respectively.

Dismissed.

"July 10, 2014 – The world’s most advanced energy efficiency test bed for buildings is open for business, launched today by U.S. Department of Energy Deputy Secretary Daniel Poneman. DOE’s FLEXLAB at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is already signing up companies determined to reduce their energy use by testing and deploying the most energy efficient technologies as integrated systems under real-world conditions. The facility includes a rotating test bed to track and test sun exposure impacts, and other high-tech features.

In addition to Deputy Secretary Poneman, University of California President Janet Napolitano, Genentech Vice President Carla Boragno, Webcor CEO Jes Pederson, and PG&E Vice President Laurie Giammona joined event host Berkeley Lab Director Paul Alivisatos to speak about the power and potential of this facility to help California, the nation and the world reduce energy use, curb greenhouse gas emissions and save money.

Humor is an effective response to climate change mitigators, since no person or species has demonstrated the ability to mitigate climate change.

Adapt or die; mitigation is the road to extinction.

You know you can't cite a compelling experimental test for either the man made catastrophic climate disruption hypothesis or climate change mitigation. The science isn't on their side; good experimental work proves good science, not popularity.

DR. ROY SPENCER: SCIENCE KNOWS 'ALMOST NOTHING' ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING

At the Heartland Institute's 9th International Conference on Climate Change in Las Vegas, Nevada, this week, Dr. Roy Spencer wowed participants with his presentation titled "What Do We Really Know About Global Warming?" wherein he noted that claims of global warming have been greatly exaggerated.

In 2012, The Economist called the Heartland Institute "the world's most prominent think tank promoting skepticism about man-made climate change," and this conference certainly lived up to that reputation. You can see many of the speeches at the conference website and at Heartland's Youtube channel.
