Back to Basics about Climate - The Sun

Donn Dears
The sun brings April showers and May flowers, along with a wonderful climate for about eight million species of life on Earth. Carbon dioxide is the molecule of life, not a catastrophic global warming pollutant. The 4.2 CO2 molecules out of 10,000 molecules in the atmosphere are enough to capture most of the photons of energy in infrared radiation emitted by the Earth from sunlight. More CO2 in the atmosphere is not going to cause catastrophic warming etc. It is only going to make the world better for life.
