  • The Fascist underpinnings of Trump's State of the Union
    • A minor comment. CO2 is not a poison gas. We breathe it in and out all day long. If one filled one's garage with pure nitrogen or pure xenon etc. the same thing would happen as if we filled it with pure CO2. It is also necessary for plants to photosynthesize. People who die from leaving the car running in the garage generally die from inhaling carbon monoxide (CO) which is certainly a poison gas and results from incomplete combustion. It's a legitimate chemical asphyxiant because it binds to hemoglobin in place of oxygen -- much like Trump is himself a political asphyxiant.

      None of this interferes with your central point that CO2 is changing the energy balance of the Earth with respect to solar radiation.
