Letter: Global warming: The truth is barely emerging
Newsweek magazine recently published an article that highlighted everyone's favorite global warming prophet, Al Gore.
For those people still disillusioned into believing that humans are destroying the planet, the article presented positive findings showing that CO2 emissions are manageable, and that fewer people buy into the global warming hoax.
One of the most fascinating features of the article states that unwanted CO2 could easily be absorbed into the soil if more farmers could be motivated to adopt mulching, no-till farming, and to use cover crops and manure.
One expert affirmed, "If we feed the biology and manage grasslands appropriately, we could sequester as much carbon as we emit."
Another promising option was called biochar, which is basically porous charcoal.
Newsweek noted this about biochar: "Made by burning switch grass, corn husks, and other wastes, it can absorb CO2 like a charcoal filter in a cigarette absorbs gases."
The bad news is that the global warming alarmists don't want the public to know the real facts.
Why? Because even though some alternate fuels are a legitimate endeavor, the government is wasting billions of tax dollars are on inefficient "green" products and industries.
The Obama administration also salivates at the thought of generating tax revenue from the pending Democrat's cap-and-trade legislation based on global warming caused by CO2 emissions.
Just last week it was discovered that a group of unethical scientists selectively deleted scientific data and e-mails that disproved global warming.
Unless you watch Fox News, you probably aren't aware that Al Gore's people cut off the microphone of journalist Phelim McAleer (producer of the movie "Not Evil, Just Wrong") when he asked Gore a question about the false statements and facts in Gore's movie, "An Inconvenient Truth." Gore apparently didn't want to answer, or couldn't answer, the question presented.
