    You don't seem to have a firm grasp on the amount of plant life, and its distribution throughout the global ecosystem, do you?

    don't wanna get into so some stupid debate, but, here i go... if asteroids/ice ages/mega volcanic eruptions didn't do the trick, a bit of CO2 ain't gonna do it either... remember, Precambrian was full of CO2 and little to no oxygen, which seemed to good for getting use here today

    and hell, if it kills 99% of humans, that aint a bad thing, necessarily

    You and many other environmentalists may dream of returning to the use of whale oil. It won't happen. Get over it.

    the same environmentalists who join organizations like Greenpeace to try to save the whales? interesting delusion.

    I think it's starting to become pretty obvious who this is - we have another "cleanup in aisle multinick" coming up, I think.

    (well, not really, it's all "rough and tumble", after all)

    who?

    i doubt it's Nuckinfutz. Nuckinfutz has some similar views, but more of a sense of humor and is less... surreal. Jonah! maybe?

    Forest clearing and marine pollution are reducing the oxygen producers...do you you dispute that...and back to the OP...financial calamity and global warming are already connected

    ... and neither of those two are primary identities anyway.

    I really wish the mods would be better at identifying multinicks, but I guess that's not their job, really. Either way, these kind of nicks are just providing more clicks and views, so it's all good, as far as AF is concerned :-)

    so again, what gas do plants use for photosynthesis? will more of it make the environment more favorable to plants, or less?

    Always seemed like a compound nick, on loan to several nutcases. Lately it's obvious 'he' has been used consistently by someone else.

    Only to C4 carbon pathway plants (tropical grasses like corn and sugar cane) but not C3 plants...but the problem is production of oxygen...and healthier C4 plants don't replace the oxygen production in the oceans or rainforests
