A Dearth of Carbon (w/ Dr. Patrick Moore, environmentalist)
A Dearth of Carbon w Dr Patrick Moore environmentalist
Dr. Patrick Moore takes issue with NGOs over climate, genetically modified organisms and the "truth" about carbon.
He says we were literally running out of carbon before we started to pump it back into the atmosphere. “CO2 has been declining to where it is getting close to the end of plant life, and in another 1.8 million years, life would begin to die on planet Earth for lack of CO2.”
According to Moore, it is life itself that has been consuming carbon and storing it in carbonaceous rocks. He goes on to say, “Billions of tons of carbonaceous rock represent carbon dioxide pulled out of the atmosphere, and because the Earth has cooled over the millennia, nature is no longer putting CO2 into the atmosphere to offset this.”
