That the so-called "Left" could swallow-whole this COLLOSSAL LIE is a testament to the effectiveness of the 'Rocke-Nazis' in destroying science education of the public, generally, and in "dumbing-down" even the most basic, rudimentary knowledge of science among the "Left" specifically, especially in the "advanced industrial" [advanced-decadence] "West"!
Carbon Dioxide is the single most crucial nutrient supporting the health — the very EXISTENCE — of Earth's Photosynthesis-based Biosphere.
We breathe Oxygen. We exhale carbon dioxide. Carbon Dioxide is a waste product for our bodies, but CO2 is a vital "food" for green plants. Green plants also respirate, using Oxygen. But green plants "breathe" CO2. Without adequate CO2, they suffocate.
Not only is atmospheric Carbon Dioxide concentration directly correlated to the "Primary Productivity" of the Biosphere — to the rate of 'biomass self-reproductivity' of that Biosphere — but atmospheric Carbon Dioxide is in short supply today, not only with respect to the concentration-level necessary to support the optimal "primary productivity" of the green plants evolved in earlier biospheric epochs, but also in relation to CO2's "normal" concentration-levels throughout the history of Earth's Biosphere [except during certain previous Ice Ages].
Earth's Biosphere has been in a state of severe biomass denudation since the Pleistocene Ice Ages began, a denudation abetted by the severely-depleted status of atmospheric CO2 concentration.
We are essentially still in an Ice Age — in a brief lull between mile+-deep global glaciations, called an "interglacial" — an Ice Age geologically soon-to-resume in full-force, and likely, this time, to destroy the Biosphere utterly — UNLESS a technologically-empowered, productive-forces-empowered [therefore 'democratic-communist'] humanity intervenes, wielding the fusion-based, plasma-based advanced technologies and productive forces that will be required to end the Ice Ages for good.
A failure to achieve, locally — in the Terran locus — the next leap forward in human-social/cosmological evolution, via the productive-forces-growth re-starting, social-revolutionary transition to 'political-economic democracy' — will in all likelihood mean the total extinction of Terran humanity, and of the Terran Biosphere itself as a whole, as a consequence of this geologically-impending Ice Age resumption.
"Earth's atmosphere today contains about 380 ppm CO2 (0.038%)."
[ed: "ppm" = parts per million]
"Compared to former geologic times, our present atmosphere, like the Late Carboniferous atmosphere, is CO2-impoverished!"
"In the last 600 million years of Earth's history only the Carboniferous Period and our present age, the Quaternary Period, have witnessed CO2 levels less than 400 ppm."
"There has historically been much more CO2 in our atmosphere than exists today."
"For example, during the Jurassic Period (200 mya), average
CO2 concentrations were about 1800 ppm or about 4.7 times higher than today."
[ed: "mya" = million years ago]
"The highest concentrations of CO2 during all of the Paleozoic Era occurred during the Cambrian Period, nearly 7000 ppm — about 18 times higher than today."
"The Carboniferous Period and the Ordovician Period were the only geological periods during the Paleozoic Era when global temperatures were as low as they are today.
"To the consternation of global warming proponents, the Late Ordovician Period was also an Ice Age while at the same time CO2 concentrations then were nearly 12 times higher than today — 4400 ppm."
"According to greenhouse theory, Earth should have been exceedingly hot."
"Instead, global temperatures were no warmer than today."
"Clearly, other factors besides atmospheric carbon influence earth temperatures and global warming."
Global Temperature and Atmospheric CO2 over Geologic Time
Late Carboniferous to Early Permian time (315 mya — 270 mya) is the only time period in the last 600 million years when both atmospheric CO2 and temperatures were as low as they are today (Quaternary Period).

Predicted future statement by Al Gore, circa 2013 A.D.:
"People exhale Carbon Dioxide.
People pollute — just by breathing.
To reduce Global Warming, we can't just reduce global energy consumption by 90%.
We have to reduce people by 90%, to save the Earth.
People ARE Carbon Dioxide pollution!
They must be eliminated!
[Except for your betters, the dedicated and superior few who, like Myself, the Prince of Wales, the Rockefeller Family, and the J. P. Morgan Family, are worthy to survive, because we — the true Gods of Nature, the true Christs — have fought to save the Earth!]"
