It has become almost a religion that the rising atmospheric carbon level is a dangerous menace to the world, and that all people are morally obligated to combat this supposedly great threat. The Federal EPA has even labeled it a pollutant. This mainstream tenet is not only erroneous, the exact opposite is the case: the rising atmospheric carbon dioxide level is beneficial to the world. As an introductory explanation as to why it is beneficial, Professor William Happer of Princeton University lays out the case in a video entitled “World in Midst of Carbon Drought” . A helpful debate on the topic is also available.
