    So what is the soil telling the scientists about global warming?

    Care for some carbonfree sugar?
    You have to be more careful with your words. Carbon is not evil. It is those sort of comments that highlight how silly 'science' has become with this. Why is it so hard to say carbon dioxide?
    And yes, plants need carbon dioxide.

    I fully understand plants need carbon dioxide. But as with all things in life, everything in moderation! You can have 'too much.'

    Such a weak argument to claim plants need carbon dioxide so it must all be ok.

    I would love and answer to my question earlier about why do you keep posting?

    Why do you keep posting then?! Why not go have the debate somewhere else? This thread has been active for months now and you haven't gotten a new people participating...

    The tax is on carbon dioxide emissions.

    You raise an interesting point. Can plants have too much CO2? I have read some studies that indicate that that is not the case. Each species is different, but they would all absolutely love at least a doubling of current levels of CO2.

    400ppm is not much in the big scheme of things.

    That is not my argument. It is, however, a convenient truth.

    I didn't realise that threads had time limits or recruitment quota requirements.

    There was global cooling for 3 decades between 1940 and 1970.
    Enough that scientists were concerned.
    These articles are quite entertaining when you read them now.

    Here is a graph from the new scientist article that you posted.

    Yep, certainly a dip in the 1940s, but not a downward trend. My point really shouldn't be that difficult to understand.

    You confirmed that you wanted to bang your head against the wall and were getting frustrated talking to people with 'their heads buried in the sand.' So I think my question as to why you keep posting after months of debating with the same people is pretty valid.
