Plants lap up carbon dioxide in record levels – carbon tax is a scam

by | 14th, July 2012

IN Australia, taxpayers pay for producing carbon. In the UK, plans are afoot for a unilateral carbon tax. Only, plants love the stuff. In fact, plants are lapping it up, reversing any effect of global warming:

The earth would have warmed faster in the last two decades had there not been an unexplained rise in the amount of carbon dioxide being absorbed on land, scientists believe.

Scientists have discovered an “abrupt increase’’ since 1988 in the uptake of carbon dioxide (CO2) by the land biosphere, which comprises all of the planet’s plant and animal ecosystems.

Wellington-based scientist Dr Sara Mikaloff-Fletcher, from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, was part of the global research team investigating the distribution of CO2 emissions.

Ms Mikaloff-Fletcher said … “We were completely taken by surprise (by the findings). It’s opened up a whole new series of questions.’’

So. Why are you being taxed, then..?
