Thorpe Watson, Ph.D. in Physical Metallurgy & Science of Materials. Thirty five year career covering wide range of science disciplines plus 10 year investigation of the climate controversy: Contrary to the nonsensical, global-warming orthodoxy, our CO2 emissions do not give us the power to stabilize the planet’s ever-changing climate. However, a politically-mandated, carbon-free economy will certainly condemn us to poverty and misery of a third-world country. Is this a politically intended consequence of the war on CO2? In conclusion, we must treasure CO2 and allow our CO2 emissions to replenish the severely-depleted store of bio-available CO2. Any initiative to remove CO2 from the atmosphere should be viewed as an attempt to develop the ultimate weapon of mass destruction. A world without CO2 is a world without plant and animal life.
