A new study by the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change - The State of Earth's Terrestrial Biosphere: How is it Responding to Rising Atmospheric CO2 and Warmer Temperatures? - refutes claims by the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that global warming is stressing Earth's natural and agro-ecosystems by ...

More Heartland Institute Junk Science.

According to the New York Times, the documents also suggest that much of the money dedicated to anti-climate change initiatives comes from one source who is described as "the Anonymous Donor."

One donor who wants to pull the wool over people eyes with money. Too bad he doesn't have any real facts to work with. Just money.

A study?

A piece of fiction from a fossil fuel funded non-climate scientist, through a fossil fuel funded propaganda machine.

You mean the people whose models were good enough to tell you when and where Sandy would make landfall several days in advance?

They were close but no cigar. Anyway they calculated the area only minutes before land fall. Its like flying a plane and making an announcement five minutes after the plane landed that it was a safe land.

Nope they got the cigar. For predicting landfall days in advance.

But Hurricane Sandy was a decisive win for the meteorologists and their computer models. Not only did the models correctly project Sandy's strength and path, they predicted an unprecedented storm--just about the highest accomplishment in forecasting.

One cigar for the models. A nice Cuban too.

phdudd proves his duddism. phdudd did not predict the landfall. But scientists predicted landfall days ahead, altho Hurricane Sandy was moving in another direction. Pretty good prediction, despite your naysaying & inability to figure out where Hurricane Sandy was going. Yeah, I named you right, phdudd.

One of the standard gimmicks for junk science and astro-turf misrepresentation is to create and name an organization as the exact OPPOSITE of it's true goals.

Thus, the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change does NOT study carbon dioxide and global change. It studies denial of both.

The primary funding of this junk science site is from Exxon, Craig Idso (also funded by oil interests) and other outlets for the Western Fuel Association. The junk science they produce is mostly distibuted on 'CO2 Science', another website for distributing false information.

If you are enjoying mild temperatures, thank me. My two Chrysler Hemi-powered vehicles are emitting plenty of CO2. We all have to do our part.

Should have bought an RV they put out more CO2.
