Many scientists and meteorologists have already proclaimed publicly that global warming is a farce, that there’s no such thing, and that it’s a gimmick of the left to control our lives and our behavior through big government.
But even if you believe in the farce that there is such a thing as global warming, the alleged warming isn’t necessarily a bad thing. And the claim that it directly harms and kills marine life forms has just been disproven.
This week’s “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences” features a study on rising water temperatures and higher amounts of carbon dioxide. The study found that this resulted in increased feeding and growth rates of starfish a/k/a Pisaster ochraceus, indigenous to America’s west coast.
Read an abstract of the study, “Elevated water temperature and carbon dioxide concentration increase the growth of a keystone echinoderm.”
Hey, now that these scientists that did the study came to a conclusion that contradicts the enviro-zealots, maybe the eco-left can resort to their usual tactics to shut them up. You know, like attacking their homes and ruining their professional reputations.
But probably not. Sadly, even though scientists Rebecca A. Gooding, Christopher D. G. Harley, and Emily Tang found that so-called global warming does not harm marine life as previously claimed by the global warming crowd, the scientists won’t let that get in the way of their own political views and they still claim that “climate change poses a serious threat to biodiversity.”
As for me, I’ll be disregarding their conclusion that doesn’t follow their research. And I’ll be watching “The Goode Family,” the ABC show I told you about last Friday, which makes fun of the eco-hypocrites and liberal activists who just can’t help themselves to the truth.
