Why can't they build a massive pipe past our atmosphere into space and just pump carbon dioxide out into space?
The reason this isn't an option is they KNOW this is a scam! they also are well aware of the fact that the real problem is TOO LITTLE CO2!
I am not kidding. The earth has been sequestering CO2 for millions of years and plants have had to adjust to an CO2 starved atmosphere.
C3 plants can not tolerate CO2 starvation especially when combined with drought. C4 are better adapted to lower levels of CO2 and CAM plants have the
best adaptation. Since CO2 is a vital plant food plants must open the stomata wider when there is not as much CO2. This means more water is
transpired and therefore a low level of CO2 increase the water requirements.
At 200 pm CO2 trees starve: biblioteca.universia.net...
At 180 pm CO2 other plants quit growing.
....Plant photosynthetic activity can reduce the Co2 within the plant canopy to between 200 and 250 ppm... I observed a 50 ppm drop in within a
tomato plant canopy just a few minutes after direct sunlight at dawn[/v] entered a green house (Harper et al 1979) ... photosynthesis can be halted
when CO2 concentration approaches 200 ppm... (Morgan 2003) Carbon dioxide is heavier than air and does not easily mix into the greenhouse atmosphere
And yes I know the Ice cores say the CO2 was down around 180 PPM
Plant Stomata react more accurately to CO2 concentration, as has been determined in experiments. (More CO2 means fewer stomata, as plants exchange CO2
more efficiently) Historical collections of leaves can be used to determine past CO2 levels. In most cases, researchers are bound by the modern
paradigm, and get confused by the low stomata counts of the past. Stomata cannot measure very high CO2, but only indicate high C)2. Higher CO2 levels
over 325ppm are underestimated. When reading stomata research, you need to filter out the ruling paradigm when the problematical ice-core data is
used to calibrate the stomata, when it should be the reverse.
Rapid atmospheric changes are well known from past reconstructions:
