Our local power district here in Sidney, Nebraska, is sponsoring the showing
of a movie, "The Greening of Planet Earth," which presents "evidence" to
show how "current CO2 levels, which are 30 percent higher than in the
pre-industrial era, have greatly enhanced the growth of trees and other
plants. Results from controlled studies show how a doubling of CO2 in the
atmosphere, which is expected to occur over the next century, will increase
crop yields by 30 to 40 percent, double the water-use efficiency of most of
the Earth's vegetation and possibly triple the productivity of forests."
This sounds like corporate propaganda aimed at brainwashing the public into
thinking that global warming isn't a bad thing, it's good! Any facts out
there that I could include in a letter to the editor providing the other
side of the story to our local citizens?
Thanks for any suggestions,
